This morning for breakfast we had granola, yogurt, and blackberries from our back yard: doesn’t it look pretty?
I’m proud of how well I’m holding things together now that Sam is back at work. For the past couple days I’ve managed to do potty/story time with Robin; basic housekeeping tasks (laundry, dishes, making the beds, picking things up off the floor); and trips to the park, in and around soothing a restless baby who never wants to be set down ever ever ever. The Ergo baby sling has been my friend and boon companion, but I’ve also gratefully accepted Pops and Mo’s offer to buy us an electronic swing, so that I don’t always have to be trying to do things with a baby strapped in front of me.
I’m also excited because yesterday I got my first request for a “full” from an agent, meaning that he’s read the opening chapters of my novel and now wants to see the rest. I think this is a really good sign that the edits I made to the first chapters are working.
