  • Ollie starting puking before 7:30.

  • I lay in bed with him over half the day to keep him happy. I have finally seen the listless Ollie that we always wondered existed. Thank goodness I had The Goose Girl to read (and thank you for the recommendation Autumn).

  • Chad took care of everything else. I mean everything. Today was the day of a million things that needed to get done, and he did them plus some, all with good humor. That guy...I can't even tell you how lucky I am.

  • Gabe's speech teacher told Chad that Gabe was ready to graduate from speech. Hip hip hurray! He has worked SO hard and I am so proud of him.

  • Colin worked on his class Valentines all by himself. He finished four in about an hour. Yikes. I will help him tomorrow.

  • My sister Lindsey went to the hospital to have their baby girl! Still waiting to hear of her arrival.

Today could've been better, but it could've been a lot worse. I am just thankful today.

*Update -Lindsey had Mayan Jade Morris last night around 7:30. She is 6 lbs 11 oz. 19 inches. Lindsey said labor went really really well, and she hopes that Seth will be able to post some pictures later today.

Did you like Goose Girl? If you did she's got a ton of other books out. I really liked Book of a 1,000 Days (another YA) and her adult book Austenland.

And I hope Ollie gets better soon too!

Olivia - I have also read Austenland and The Actor and The Housewife. I have Princess Academy sitting in the other room waiting for me, and I will definitely have to check out her other stuff!
