It's been a while, but I'm trying to make a comeback!
Here's a bit of fabulousness for my Friday...
1- We got the report from our tax man today. It was good. Very good. I ♥ refunds...
2- Something that's tickled my mind with worry for the last several years will not be a worry anymore after next Tuesday. Although I'll still worry until probably Wednesday, I'm happy to have an end in sight.
3- My parents adopted a dog. She's awesome... a year old Irish Wolfhound/Greyhound mix. She's beautiful and sweet and big and wonderful and she lives at my parents' house, not mine. Dustin and my kids all have been wanting a dog, but I flatly refused telling them we're having our own little "puppy" soon. Now, they all have their dog-wish satiated without actually having a dog. Thank you mom and dad...my family thanks you too.
4- Books. I've been reading lots and lots of books. Love them. The Hunger Games and it's sequel, Catching Fire were fast, fun reads. I read both of those twice and anxiously await the third book in August. The Traveler, which I've read before but it's been a while, and it's sequel, The Dark River, which I'm reading right now (also read before). These two are a set of a trilogy, you see, and the third one came out last fall and I wanted to refresh my memory before I read this last one. So, I have the third one, The Golden City, waiting for me to read (that series is written by John Twelve Hawks, if anyone is interested). I also read The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale. Loved it! Love her style. I ♥ books.
5- Baby. Baby is coming. Baby is coming SOON!! Part of me hesitates to put this on here because, while it is a completely fabulous thing, I'm a little bit anxious about it. My due date looms just 5 1/2 weeks away. That's freakin' crazy! But, I'm excited to meet this little person who will rock our family's world for a few months while we settle in to getting to know each other. And the birth of this baby will also mean the end of my being pregnant. And let's just say that I'm getting to that point where labor is starting to sound better than pregnancy. So, bring on the contractions, baby! (in a few weeks.... not just yet as you need to bake a little longer!)
