Crazy Thing Called Love World Tour!! Or making my mom feel bad...

Ha. Not really. But let me tell you a little story... so, every Thanksgiving when my family and I move in with my parents for about a week, my mom says ABOUT A MILLION TIMES "it would be so great if you could come down just you. And we could shopping and see movies..." I totally understand, and this sounds kind of dreamy to me too. Visiting my hometown, catching up with old friends, sleeping in in the bed I discovered sleeping in, in. HA! So, I decided I would come down near the release of Crazy Thing Called Love - I'd do some signings, some other fun promo stuff and let my mom buy me a pedicure. I organized some events, told my mom the dates A MILLION TIMES and was ready to go.

Last month we were talking about this trip and mom asked me what the dates were again. This has happened about a million times, so I told her and then there was a deadly silence and then mom moaned. Come to find out, Mom and Dad planned to go to Florida that week. Yes. That week. Mom got the dates confused. And then couldn't get her money back on the deposit. And so, I am heading down to see my parents for about twelve hours. And then it's just me. And a rental car. And man, I'm getting the deluxe pedicure. DELUXE!

But I'm also doing some fun promo events. So, if you are in the area - come see me!!

Have a fabulous time, Molly! And just think, now you have ammo to hold over your mom for decades. ;)

Seriously, though, she must feel terrible.

Oooh. Harsh. That's something my kids do to me (I'm looking at you, Teddy Rendahl), not the other way around. Yet.

Chicago is fabulous, though. Have a great time. I hope you have time for a beer at the Berghoff or maybe some Caramel Cashew Popcorn from Garrett's.

And may I say to Molly's Mom, great job! You've raised an amazing daughter!

Maureen McGowan said...

Thanks Mom Fader. :) And can't wait to see you at Mother's Day. :)
