Why I can’t be friends with Mondays

First of all, my phone died. As in even Apple can’t fix it. Which means I need to spend the day driving the hour and a half to the closest Apple store to stand in line forever.

Apple and I are not friends right now.

Second of all, I’m back from the LA event and heading to Austin for another reader event on Thursday. If you live anywhere near Austin, please come out and see me! (starts at 7pm, deets on my appearances tab above). This means another flight. The last flight was bumpy and the guy in front of us had gas. Like BAD gas.

Me and planes are not friends right now.

Third of all, my yoga pants are too snug. Now granted, I do not do yoga but hey. It seems like it should be really hard to make yoga pants get tight.

Me and stretch pants are not friends right now.

Maybe I just need a nap. Or cookies. But if I nap, I’ll miss my Apple appointment and if I eat cookies, my yoga pants aren’t going to ever be friends with me again. So I think I’ll just go write my book. I’m doing some finishing touches on Spence’s story from Heartbreaker Bay (CHASING CHRISTMAS EVE). Anyone out there looking forward to reading that one? I sure hope so because now THAT would help make my @#$!# Monday.

p.s. The Wilder brothers (INSTANT ATTRACTION, INSTANT GRATIFICATION, and INSTANT TEMPTATION are on digital sale for $0.99 so run don’t walk, that sale won’t last another day I bet!!!!!)

  1. Sounds like you could use another weekend. I think the saying when it rains it pours applies here.

    Hope you have a better day. :good: :bye:

  2. Not many people like Mondays. However, this Monday (as in today) is my Friday. I just got home from a 12 hour overnight shift and am now off for several days. And no one tried to kill me at work (I’m a psychiatric nurse in an ER), so that counts as a good night. As for yoga pants, many people have the issue of snugness.

    The bigger question is this: When are you coming to Charlotte?


  3. I am looking forward to Spence’s Christmas Eve story! Hope your Monday gets better!

  4. Can’t stand the wait until Spencer’s story!

  5. I have it pre-ordered. Go get some new yoga pants, eat a snack pack of cookies (those packages are so small they don’t count in your daily C.I., cookie intake) and Google some hot men. Google them good Jill.

  6. Please write faster as I’m VERY IMPATIENT to read Spence’s story. :rose:

  7. :-) write faster. I put a hex on your phone so you would not be distracted.

  8. Sound like a nice drive to get a new phone. A good time to think of new story. A plot or a great story line. Or just relax an enjoy the drive. The phone part still is though. Have a sunny day!

  9. It must be Phone breakdown Monday!!!!
    I don’t wear yoga wear leggings and a freaking knee brace..
    I live in south Texas, your about 3 hours away.. sighhhhh
    Your day will get better..go walk with Frat Boy and then…go to the apple store.and people watch. Great characters for for your yoga pants..Alpha man probly dried them in the dryer on high.. hugs Sweet Girl.

  11. The Wilderness brothers are my favorite. I want Cameron. And I’m looking forward to Spencer’s story.

  12. Stupid auto correct. The Wilder brothers.

  14. Can you steal away for some “me time”, like a manicure? (I’m guessing there are 1-2 manicurists in the big, bad Sierras? )

    You’ve had a busy time, hope you get a few moments to breathe. Thanks so much for all you do.

  15. Can’t wait for the next book! And sounds like you need a working vacation with an ocean view!!

  16. Definitely looking fwd to Spencer’s story!!

  19. Sorry for all your problems but I am really looking forward to the new book

  20. I am looking forward to all your next books!! (But especially Spence’s right now). Hope your Monday looks up very soon!! Best of luck making friends with your yoga pants again… because if you’re not friends with the stretchy pants, there’s not much hope for the other pants either. :rose:

  21. :heart: Totally understandable. Take heart, Tuesday will be here in a few hours.

  22. Sorry for all your troubles.

    The good news – I do look forward to every single thing you write – so get to it!!!!

  23. Heck yes I can’t wait to read sexy nerd Spence’s story!!

  24. I am looking forward to reading Chasing Christmas Eve. Sure hope that helps your day. :bye:

  25. Geez! It hasn’t been a great Monday for me either. I lost my WiFi connection at 11 last night. Went to bed to deal with it today. I have just spent 2 hours on the phone with Comcast to fix it. It is finally back so now I am eating a bunch of the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I made yesterday to take to my grandchildren tomorrow. I hope there will be some left LOL I have sweatpants on so they allow for expansion LOL

  26. BTW- I am really looking forward to reading “Chasing Christmas Eve”. I hope your day goes better from now forward. Mine is now good.

  27. I certainly am looking forward to Spencer’s book!..Meanwhile, think I will download the Wilder books…I know you are very busy, but it is waaaaaay too long between books from you! Been working my way through your backlist… Love everything you write….

  28. I’m SOOOOO excited for Spencer’s story!! I don’t ever want the Heartbreaker Bay stories to end! (Also, the Wilder brothers are one of my fave series from you–can’t take advantage of the sale though, since I already have them in multiple formats)

  29. It doesn’t matter that Apple, planes, and yoga pants aren’t your friends- your readers love you! Now come to St Paul! :heart:

  30. I had so much fun in Yorba Linda, Jill. I will not be able to make the Austin event…very sad…but EVERYONE should try to make a Jill Shalvis event! She is a lovely human being. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  31. I am waiting impatiently for Spence’s story. I hope you will write more stories about the rest of the group in Heartbreak Bay. I am looking forward to Tim/Tina’s story. Please write about everyone in the apartment building and the businesses around the fountain. I would love the series. Lori Foster and Jill Shalvis are my two favorite authors. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :wacko: :wacko: :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

  32. Yes I’m looking forward to Spencer’s story. I’m so sorry you are having an no good, awful Monday. Good luck at the Apple store. i hope they can fix your phone. I do know all about phones deciding to stop working before leaving town. Hopefully the rest of the week will be better!! HUGS!

  33. I’m sorry for your issues today but heck, anything that makes you go write, works for me! :whistle:

    Oh yeah. Spence needs an HEA. BIG time! And the “Instant” books were my “first” JS books…and they got me hooked.

    Safe — and fume free! — travels this week!

  34. Can’t wait for Spence’s story!
    Thanks for the heads up about the Attraction series. I just bought all three with narration for my long commutes to and from work!
    Here it’s a rainy day. Rainy days and Mondays ALWAYS get me down!

  35. I can’t wait for the next Heartbreaker Bay and Spence’s story…. just love this group of characters and looking forward to all of their stories….so, so good!!! Also bought the three “instant” books for my Kindle and will start those as soon as I finish the current book I am reading. Safe travels…. Monday is already half over (at least for those of us on the right side of the country) – it’s all downhill from here!

  36. :rose: Here is a rose to help improve your Monday. May everything go well at the Apple store. :smile:

    I am not ready to think about Christmas, even just in a book, but I am always excited to read any new book you have coming out. It is nice to know that it will be available later this year. Right now I am anticipating reading Lost and Found Sisters. :smile: :smile: :smile:

  37. :cry: I too am having phone problems. Although mine is not an Applei, I was thinking of getting one. Now I’m re-thinking that idea. If your yoga pants don’t fit, get larger pants or get a smaller body! I’ve lost some weight in the last two years and while I don’t fit in ladies sizes, I don’t fit in women’s sizes either. Yikes. What’s a body to do? Time for cookies definitely :yahoo:

  38. I totally feel your pain! I also have a bad case of the mondays…first got a cold on top of allergies…then yeah gained a couple pounds from eating too much cake feeling sorry for my self and not enough gym time. We should be able to eat whatever we want and not gain weight…wouldn’t that be the perfect world :yes:
