Today I finally get to share the secret I mentioned back in January. It’s been hard but I’ve managed to keep my mouth shut. So, how to share the news?
Last Sunday we celebrated my baby sister’s birthday at my parents’ home.
I am sooooo excited!!! The road has been quite bumpy and this is a high risk pregnancy but all is going well and little Liam Michael is scheduled to make his appearance in early August.
It’s been nearly eight years since we’ve had a baby in the extended family and we are READY!!!! Lauren has really wanted a baby for some time now and Brian has always wanted to be a daddy; so this baby is greatly desired and loved and he hasn’t even shown his face yet.
Now for my second secret . . . although it is hard to share the post with the first bit of wonderful news, it is exciting in its own right.
It has been a long time in the making but she finished writing it last Friday and finished with the first edit yesterday! (I think she feels a bit like she’s birthing a baby. hahaha) I’m soooo proud of her. I’m excited to let you all know when and where to buy it later this spring! The bits she’s read to me so far are excellent. I can’t wait to read it all!
Well, now. Any thing else I would add here today would be anti-climatic because the rest of the week has been pretty mundane with cooking, cleaning, and book work. Oh! I did do one big thing this week, that is almost worthy of fireworks. I got rid of that pile of magazines I showed you last month. AND I did so without sitting down and going through each and every one of them.
I had started sorting through them and realized I was going down a path that would not result in the pile going away quickly. So, I called for Tiffany to help me “do the hard thing.” She quickly came to my rescue, picked up the pile I was staring at and promptly deposited them into the trash can. I took the second stack and did likewise. Then I took the bag, tied it up, and immediately walked it out to the trash can. They are gone now!
See. Anti-climatic. But worthwhile, all the same.
I’ll run for now. Have a great weekend!
Until next time, God bless,
