1 - Happy Valentine's Day! My gift to you is a love song playlist. It's a little all over the place: the Old 97's, Ricky Nelson, Sara Groves, The Civil Wars, just to name a few. I hope you like it.
2 - I am reading The Help right now and I can barely put it down. I've even seen the movie and I am still completely engaged. I know I'm waaaaay behind the curve on this, but if you haven't read it yet either, get a copy. It's wonderful.
3 - My kids have requested heart-shaped waffles for breakfast today. Alas we do not have a waffle maker that can do that trick so we'll all just have to settle for pancakes. For supper. Because I do not have time to make pancakes in the morning. Probably. I'm writing this Thursday night so we can still see what the morning brings.
(Molly made a bunch of great Jane Austen Valentines, including the one above.)
4 - A lot of kind people have been asking how James is doing, and I'm really happy to say that he's doing really super well. We don't know why the seizure happened and he hasn't had one since, praise God. We'll continue to monitor him and hope for the best.
5 - Sooooooo, The Edel Gathering. A couple things about it:
- I'm going and I'm so excited. And terrified. Both. At the same time.
- I was caught up in how I was going to "know" or even know so many of the women attending and then I realized that I actually won't know most people. I realize that is obvious, but I just overlooked it.
- I'm hoping that there will be name tags and they will say something like
A Knotted Life
(aka Sheenazing Award and miracle baby lady)
7 - Watch this video and then enter to win a double date with Ben and Matt. How cool would that be?!
