I am really excited today. Kevin is making it possible for me to have several hours alone to work on my writing--something I always want to do but don't make the time/don't have the time/am too scared to do. As I said previously, he is the one who really encouraged me to start this blog, and I admit that it's something I am really enjoying. (Thanks for reading, by the way. It means a lot to me!) This is a good place for me to talk about all the random things that are going on in my head all the time and a good place for me to jot down some of my memories.

We are hoping to make this a weekly event, which is such a gift. I love that Kevin is so supportive of my dreams and does practical things to help me try to realize those dreams. I am also thankful that his schedule is flexible enough to make this possible. These days will be great for him, too, because he'll get to spend a lot of one-on-one time with Katie. And they might even head up to the school to eat lunch with Callie and Caleb. Very fun!

On the way to school this morning, Callie was commenting on the fact that I was going to work on my writing today. She wanted to know why I wanted to do it, and I told her that it is something that I really enjoy and that there are some people who like to read what I write. Then I told her that I would like to try to get published some day, like in a magazine or something. Then she says, "Don't you think it would get annoying to me and Daddy and Caleb and Katie if you become famous?" Ha! I told her she didn't have to worry about that but then asked her to explain why it would be annoying. She said she would get tired of people stopping me all the time to get my autograph. Double ha! I guess I should take it as an indirect compliment, though.

But since all those CRAZY FANS haven't started bombarding me with Sharpies yet, I'm going to sit here at Cups and enjoy my pensive, creative time alone. Thank you for these Thursdays, Kevin!

What a thinker that Callie is! How cute! That will make a great story for People magazine one day when you really are famous and they ask you that question about "did you ever in your wildest imagination think you would write something so many people connected with?"

When Sam filled out papers on the first day of school there was a line for occupation next to Mom and Dad's names. For me, he put Mom/Writer. Validation!
