FYI - Unless something CATASTROPHIC happens,

I will not be anywhere near my computer (or any computer) on August 1st and 2nd. I'll be headed to my mom's. We plan to go to BAM for the release party, and then I'll be staying there until sometime Sunday.

So something pretty close to catastrophic did happen, and now I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to get my hands on the book. Dh will be out of town, so... IDK. There is no book retailer here in town. *gasp* I may be able to get a copy from Walmart :evil:

In the scheme of things, it really is no big deal, but I'm still upset about my plans with mom not working out. I feel selfish for even feeling that way too.

Doesn't look like I can get it -- I didn't see that option in the shipping info. for my area. Sad

I know my Walmart will have them, just don't know what time they will put them out. They have a vendor come in and do that, and the manager I talked to said the time varies. Argghhhh, I'm so damn frustrated.

I would go at midnight to WM and stand in line until they get it off the trucks. If you have a BN near you most of them are having a midnight party.

I have to go to Fayetteville (a good 45 min drive one way) to get to an actual book store. Plus, I have all 4 kids by myself again this weekend -- dh has another tournament this weekend.

I told Gray I was going to go early Sat morning like 8 am ish, and pitch a fit if that is what it took. Unfortunately, sounds as though the books don't come in on their trucks. Some vendor comes in and stocks the books and music. So a melt down will get me no where besides maybe the back of a police car for public disturbance. Lol Guess then the apple wouldn't have fallen far from the family tree.

Take the kids and stay in a hotel for the night so you can get it... You can do it with the 4 Wink Desperate times call for desperate measures.
