Its amazing how much our lives have changed over the last few years. Its funny because last night brian watched the kids so I could go to target and michales and I was in heaven. 10 years ago I would have thought that I was crazy to have enjoyed 2 hours of alone time (at a craft store) as much as I did.

Oh...your writing a book, thats amazing! What is it about?

Vindie said...

Wow, I didn't know you were writing a book! That's awesome...you're a great writer so I'm sure it will be a-mazing! Also thanks again for the Ginger-Ale! It's saving me tonight!

Debbie, Nick, and Toby said...

Vindie- Glad the ginger ale is helping...it always seemed to take the edge off of my nausea.

Yeah, I have decided to write a book on the transition to Motherhood, meant for brand new moms. For me, I had no idea how exhausting but also rewarding being a mother would be. Its suppose to help validate worries and uplift spirits for all new moms. Its kind of weird to talk about, I haven't told very many people until recently. Thanks for your words of encouragement. :)
