There's the normal way…

By Kathryn Cushman / December 6, 2007 /

and there’s the Cushman way. While most families are content to simply stand on tiptoes and decorate a six-foot tree in their living rooms… well… let’s just say, the Cushman family is not most families.

Told you so

By Kathryn Cushman / November 28, 2007 /

A couple of weeks ago when my neighbor Lori B. hosted a book party– remember I told you she made me wear a tiara? You didn’t believe me did you? For the record- she only made me wear the boa during the question and answer session. (Lori has a rather twisted sense of humor, doesn’t…

One of "those" weeks

By Kathryn Cushman / November 19, 2007 /

I haven’t blogged in a bit because it’s been a rather hectic week around here. My mother-in-law was admitted to the hospital with a (quite scary) post-surgical blood clot. She lives a couple of hours north of here, so the family has been driving back and forth at all sorts of crazy hours. At this…

Tonight, we had some visitors for dinner. I REALLY wanted to make a good impression. I am REALLY not a terribly domestic person. So… on Saturday night I did a trial run of the dinner. It turned out perfect! So… I spent the day today(and made my kids who had the day off school spend…

By Kathryn Cushman / November 10, 2007 /

Unfortunately, all my photos from last night’s book shindig at Lori B ‘s house turned out really dark :-(. It was a great evening though (in spite of the fact that Lori made me wear a tiara!), with about 40ish women just hanging out and chatting about books, kids, whatever. Here are a few of…

In this picture, we are holding our books that are currently linked on Amazon.She said I have been on her radar because most of my promotional material says “in the tradition of Karen Kingsbury” *blush*. Anyway, she asked if I’d have my publisher send her a copy, and I said…
