I have wicked rotten kids

Thanks to Walmart, I’ve been singing Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” all day.

SK: Mom, you’re singing it again.

Me: Oops. At least, as earworms go, it’s not bad.

TK: Somebody call 9-1-1


SK: Moves like Jagger, moves like Jagger

Me: Ohimigod, you are both SO GROUNDED!

    Thank you, Jennifer!

    There are the three brothers coming in the fall and then I hope to do Liz’s story after those. That’ll pretty much wrap up the Kowalski family, but I might revisit the Northern Star Lodge (which was mentioned in Yours To Keep, but is the setting for the next three) and maybe write stories set there, which means we’d see some of the Kowalskis again.

    But I do definitely want to write Liz Kowalski’s story and I already know who she lives happily ever after with and how they get there. (But I’m not telling yet. *g*)

  3. When will Liz story be released and do you have a title for it? And I think she should end up with drew!

    I just finished the Kowalski series and I loved them all. My favorites are Joe, Sean (my absolute favorite) and Ryan. Although I’m a bit bummed that Lauren doesn’t want to have kids. That’s a bummer considering the Kowalskis are a handsome bunch it would be a shame to not procreate beautiful people. Also, I feel it’s a little unfair to him because he will never have his own kid to raise. Nick came into his life as a teenager so it’s not the same. It would be nice for the brothers to have kids roughly the same age. It would be awesome if Liz joined the mommy club too. I read All He ever dreamed crossing my fingers that Lauren changed her mind about kids and is now pregnant like Paige. I’ll hold my breath this news will be delivered in Liz’s book. I own all the ebooks and the audio books. They’re so much fun to read and listen to.

    It should release this fall, though I don’t have a specific date quite yet. September or early October, tentatively.
