Oh, by the way...

I'm still trying to get back into the groove of writing and everything now that we're back home. There's one thing I haven't really officially announced online yet that I figured I'd just take the time now to mention. We are expecting another baby. In just a few months actually--we've been telling people in real life ever since, oh, September I think, but I just never got around to announcing it online. So if I've seemed distracted or whatever at any time online or pulled away from tasks I was trying to complete, it could quite possibly have to do with all our preparations for the new baby, who is due on April 20.

So there's one of the things we're looking forward to in the new year. It's impossible to predict how being the at-home caregiver for two children will affect my writing, but I intend to still find plenty of time. It's exciting to imagine--we have a hard time looking at our three-year-old and remembering what he was like when he was so little. Probably because the lack of sleep meant those memories didn't get stored properly...

Anyway, hope you're all enjoying the new year!

Well, congratulations on the pending addition. I'm sure it is a lot of work staying home, but I truly do envy you. There are many days when I come home all rough and ragged to see my kid smile and run around. Makes me wonder what I missed out on.

And I'm right there with you trying to catch up. Seems like I missed a million things. Maybe I should ween myself a bit.
