Time flies...

  • Mood:

…when you’re a new mommy.

So, the last time I blogged--many, many months ago (sorry!)--I was yammering on and on about the construction of our new addition, which, by the way, is gorgeous. Well, little did I know that my "reading" room would morph into a playroom for our new daughter.

Elizabeth Anne (Annie) was born in late January, coming into our lives with less than two weeks notice. Matter of fact, the phone call came the day after my last blog, and I was at her birthmother’s side, holding her hand, as Annie was delivered via c-section.

My husband and I had waited for four years in the hope that someday we’d be able to adopt. Thanks to a wonderful woman who chose to place her daughter with us, we’re now the proud parents of an amazing little girl who is the light of our lives.

Here I am on Mother’s Day. A bit happy looking, don’t you think?

The past six months have flown by, and while I’ve been keeping up with my writing (barely), I certainly disappeared off the radar screen online. That being said, I’m going to attempt to kick things back into gear now that I have this new mommy thing completely under control. (That was a joke, by the way…ha ha)

My next four Intrigues are lined up and just about ready to go, starting this September with Without A Doubt. Some cover, eh?

I’m thrilled to be writing a book in an upcoming Intrigue continuity set in Colorado, and I’ve been asked to be part of a Christmas 2007 anthology with Jasmine Cresswell. To say I’m honored by both of these developments would be a major understatement. So, things are busy, and I’ll be catching you up with everything that’s going on.

For now, I’ve got to run. Annie’s learning to crawl and I can see things are about to change…again. LOL

Happy reading and warmest wishes!

Wow! You've had a life changing experience, and what a beauty she is. I'm so thrilled for you. Little girls are so much fun. It's like being a child all over again. Like playing house and dressing up your doll for the make-believe party, only this time, it's for real. What a treat!

As for your new releases, another Wow! So much is going on, it's no wonder its taken you seven months to post something. :)

Can't wait to see you in Atlanta. Get ready for a huge hug. XO

Thanks for all of your congrats, you guys! I love you all. Thanks for being so patient with me. Carolyn -- I'm cashing in that hug in Atlanta, and Amy -- I so owe you an email, pics, something. ;) And right now I'm supposed to be writing my eight pages for today, but did you know Something's Gotta Give is on TV? I mean...I do have my priorities.

...been waiting for this good news for so long. Walking past my bookcase tonight while putting T. and L. to bed, I saw "Crumbs in the Keyboard" and was inspired to google you. I am so happy for you and your little angel, Kath. God answers prayers; we just have to wait long enough. Annie is in good hands. She is a sweetie. A big hug for you, Dan and Annie.

Colok dubur bisa dilakukan untuk mendeteksi kemungkinan adanya tumor rektal, polip, pembesaran prostat, atau adanya abses. Pemeriksaan ini mungkin tidak dapat dilakukan tanpa sedasi yang sesuai karena nyeri yang timbul, walaupun kebanyakan wasir internal tidak menyebabkan nyeri. Untuk mengatasi penyakit ambeien saat ini bisa dengan obat herbal ambeien tanpa operasi dari De Nature Indonesia, sebuah produk terbuat dari bahan-bahan alami berkhasiat yang tumbuh dan mudah ditemui di Indonesia.pencegahan yang harus dilakukan agar tidak terkena ambeien yaitu menghindari mengejan ketika buang air besar, menghindari konstipasi atau diare dengan mengonsumsi makanan serat tinggi dan meminum banyak cairan atau meminum suplemen serat, dan cukup berolahraga.

Posted by obat herbal ambeien stadium 4:

Wasir atau ambeien merupakan kondisi patologis membengkak serta meradangnya Hemorrhoid, struktur vaskular dalam saluran anus yang membantu kontrol buang air besar. Dalam kondisi fisiologisnya, bagian ini bertindak sebagai bantalan yang tersusun atas saluran arterio-vena dan jaringan ikat. Menurut ilmu medis ambeien atau wasir terbagi menjadi 2 berdasarkan gejalanya. Ambeien internal biasanya timbul bersama pendarahan rektum tanpa rasa nyeri, sedangkan Ambeien eksternal bisa menunjukkan beberapa gejala dan jika terkena trombosis akan ada nyeri signifikan dan pembengkakan di area anus. Perawatan awal yang bisa dilakukan untuk mengatasi penyakit ambeien ringan dan sedang meliputi peningkatan konsumsi serat, cairan oral untuk menjaga hidrasi, NSAID untuk membantu mengatasi nyeri, dan jangan lupa untuk istirahat.Penyebab pasti dari sakit ambeien tidak diketahui dengan jelas. Namun, sejumlah faktor dipercaya turut berperan seperti kebiasaan buang air besar yang tidak teratur (konstipasi atau diare), kurang olah raga, faktor nutrisi (diet rendah serat), peningkatan tekanan intra-abdomen (kembung berkepanjangan, ascitis, adanya massa intra-abdomen, atau kehamilan), genetik.
