Mom went into labor with me on Mother’s Day of all days. Naturally, I was a stubborn baby, so I didn’t come out until the next day. Still, I imagine it must have been exciting to be laboring for the first time on such a significant day. Who knows? Maybe I’ll follow suit this year. But back to my mom. Truly, she is the most giving, kind, fun-loving person I know. I love you, Mom!
My memoir manuscript is done! I have sent my queries off into cyberspace, and for now, it’s out of my hands. After eighteen months of focusing on this book, I hardly know what to do with myself now. In fact, I felt a little weepy tonight. But really, the timing couldn’t be better because—hello—I could give birth any day! I shan’t be bored.
My dear mother-in-law and Linnea baked a dozen cupcakes for my birthday and put them in a cute decorated container. Does a pregnant woman need that many cupcakes in her kitchen? Hardly. I am trying to pace myself (and doing a right good job, actually), but it’s difficult. And yes, I am turning 34 on Monday. I’m not sure what to make of that.
I don’t care much about TV, and for the last two years, I’ve cared even less. Generally, Josh decides what to watch and I sit beside him typing. But, I am captivated by “The Voice.” Have you seen it? It’s a singing competition with Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, and Adam Levine serving as judges/coaches. Now, if someone would just develop an analogous show for aspiring writers.
Clearly, buying new clothes is out of the question right now. Complete strangers are starting to fall all over themselves to help me with doors and whatnot. Very few clothes fit, but it makes no sense to buy anything new. So, I bought myself a fun little treat—a mix-and-match pendant set that uses magnetic inserts. I love it, and based on how many compliments I’ve received, I think it would make a great gift.
I Want to Know
