But I havent seen it yet! Have I mentioned how much I LOVE delayed gratificaton...not!

Christina called me first thing this morning when she saw the new issue in the lobby of her North End apartment. I screamed and made her read me the editor's note and my credit. (Apparently, the editor called me a "saucy single mom!" I always wanted to be saucy! Bette Midler is saucy. And, apparently, so am I!)

After I dropped the kids off at school, I drove to three different Boston Globe boxes listed on the Lola web site as distribution sites. No luck. They were either empty or had a few damp copies of the February issue. I gave up and resigned myself to be tortured while I worked at home all day today.

Not to worry. It's still February and my article is in the March issue. I think they must distribute copies to Boston proper first and then to the burbs later. My office lobby is a distribution site and it's closer to Boston than Weymouth, so there's a chance I'll be able to pick it up on my way into work in the morning. There's also a chance that my colleagues saw my article before I did. Which might be a little weird. Or not. We'll see, I guess.

I'm thinking about using the article as a book proposal and getting this publishing party started for real.


  1. Congrats on the publication! And the "saucy" descriptor. I would love it if someone called me saucy. Or even a temptress. Temptress I could also live with.

  2. Congrats!! I'll be on the look out for a copy. Hope you're feeling better now.
