Next thing you know, the Big Day is upon you

Rebecca Roland writes the following post from her home in Albuquerque.
This is it. This is the day. Book release day! When I started writing years ago, I thought this day would never come, much like the first day of grad school when it felt like graduation was so far away. Next thing you know, the Big Day is upon you, and it zips right past, leaving you shaking your head and looking back on it through the haze of memory.
I’m a bundle of nervous energy as I write this post. I can hardly gather my thoughts. What will this day be like? What will I remember years from now? Just how exhausted am I going to be? Will my cat treat me any different? Wait, I know the answer to that last one. Haughty indifference? Check. My cat will keep me grounded.
Tuesdays are normally days off for me, at least from the day job. I typically spend those days playing with my son, running errands, and frantically writing during naptime. How do I explain to the two year-old that it’s a big day for Mommy? Maybe it’s enough to just go out and have some ice cream and enjoy a mutual sugar rush. He, too, will keep me grounded.
What I do know is that at the end of the day, when the husband is home and the child is asleep, I’ll put my feet up, pour a drink, and make a toast to hard work, supportive loved ones, and dreams come true.
