I have finished my book!! It is near one in the morning, I need to work tomorrow and I can't sleep because I am so excited. Out of the 80% of Americans that want to write a book, I have now joined the 2% that finished one. Now I need to join the .375 % that get published. Yikes!! It's okay, now that I'm done, I only have to rewrite the entire book, edit, rewrite again, fix the ending and make it happier, keep every rejection letter, sell it, rewrite it again, print and bind it, and then all of you lovely people can read it. Wooooph...

At least now, I have no excuse that my laundry isn't done.

To answer all your questions about my book, it's a tell-it-all book about how CRAZY my family is! I'm actually looking at this thing instead of writing on it, so..... Bye!

I'm am DANGEROUSLY close to finishing the writing of my book. I cannot wait to shout I'M DONE! at the top of my lungs. I'm going to bang pots and pans and skip and jump and..... you get the idea. So, at the moment I am taking a breather, and eating some banana bread, but I will be returning to it shortly. I promise when it is done, I will be a lot more social and participate more in the Book Clubs.
Maybe I'll even do my laundry. Hazaa!!

Birthday fun!!

So I'm now 33 and I'm counting the wrinkles, there are about 4 on my right side, probably from squinting. Please don't look now that I have told you, you'll make me self-conscious. We didn't do anything big, no big party or anything, but church went well - the kids sat in Sacrament Meeting pretty much the whole time - and Mia made me a cake. She liked frosting it the most and licking the batter too. So, we sat outside and turned on the sprinklers and watched the kids get all wet then would come and give me a big birthday hug. How sweet!!
I love this picture. It's like she is thinking, "Should I do it? Yes!!"

Julia is sopping wet!!
Hi Mom! I'm coming to hug you!!
Mia got a little wet, but then thought it would be more fun to bring out some toys to play with.
