This can't be normal

I'm a little too happy for a cold, rainy Monday morning when I was forced to get out of bed. Then again, there's a lot to look forward to this week.
On Wednesday, I get to meet my favorite author. Emily Giffin is doing a book signing, and of course I'm going. I loved Baby Proof for putting a new twist on a well-worn theme - couple splits up because one wants kids and the other, the woman, doesn't. Then, when I went to Josh's signing at Barnes and Noble, I picked up Something Borrowed and Something Blue to read while I was waiting in line. I loved them both, so much so that I'm using a passage from Something Borrowed as a reading at my wedding:
"I have loved him from the very beginning. I love him for his intelligence, his sensitivity, his courage. I love him enough to take risks. I love him enough to accept my own happiness and use it, in turn, to make him happy back. There is a knock at my door. I stand to open it. I am ready."
Then I'm going on a mini-break this weekend. My sister's graduating from college, so my fiance and I are going to Washington for that. It'll be good to get away for a while - with our work schedules, we haven't gotten to do that in so long.
And how could I forget Good Morning America on Friday? For a while I wasn't sure I wanted to go (past experiences with GMA haven't been good, and my fiance's gotten far too jealous where Josh is concerned), but now I'm starting to wonder how often I'm going to get a chance like this. I want to go. I want to take advantage of this.
