1. To all of you who were praying, the baby got his miracle. My entire family is completely amazed and thankful for how the situation turned out. So thank you for praying. Thank you for caring. Thank you.
2. To make Jane happy…
(and also to prove to Mother Nature that it’s spring and she should get a move on already) I hung paper flowers in Jane’s room. She was thrilled. In fact she screamed, “Paper flowers on my wall sooooo beautiful!” I’ve never ever gotten so much mileage out of old party decorations before.
3. I’m really excited to be part of the 2015 Listen to Your Mother cast here in Little Rock. And nervous. Speaking in public isn’t totally my thing. My voice sometimes gets low and ends up sounding like Kathleen Turner after she’s smoked a pack. I’m already practicing keeping it at a normal octave. But then I raised it too high and Jane asked, “Are you a mouse on Cinderella?” And then I know it’s time to pour myself a big root beer and eat a couple of M&M’s and watch House of Cards.
Please make plans to join us. It will be a lot of fun. I can’t promise I won’t have mouse voice.
4. I’m going back through my old blog posts on Mabel’s House and republishing them as I have time. So you may be seeing them in your old feeds, and will probably see a lot more as I go through them. I archived everything, which almost made it feel like six years of my life and writing vanished, and that made me sad. I missed being able to go back and see Jane’s chubby face and read all the things she did when she was a baby. And I also just missed that blogging history. So I’m working on that, don’t be alarmed at your blog feeds. The internets have not lost their minds.
