So as always I wanted to start off with a picture... but in all honesty I'm too tired physically and emotionally drained to even bother. So here are some confessions.

A little while ago my husband and I found out that we were expecting our first. So excited! So emotional. (me mostly.) Which is also why I can't concentrate on my writing. I feel like I dropped down a hundred notches in the brain cells department and I find myself only getting frustrated and irritated. Did anyone else ever feel like this? And how the heck do I get over it? Any suggestions and secrets would be much appreciate because although I've accepted it... it upsets me that I can't concentrate long enough.

Clearly knowing that my mom was not just pulling an April fools on us kills me the most... because it turns out that they did buy a house in Alberta. Which, in all honesty makes me happy if it turns out to make them happy, but I'm sooooooo crushed that although my mom told me that they weren't thinking about moving until October/November (after the baby's due.) Turns out the house they bought will be theirs in August so they'll probably end up leaving then or earlier. :(

This is the last (hopefully) I'll talk about this house/ Alberta thing because it's just too depressing, and I promise to work on some happy posts for the next little while. For you poor guys who actually read my ramblings and for me because my wonderful sister - nurse Jenny - informs me that it's bad for the baby. :)

On a happy note... Wylie... the cover of your book looks amazing! And I can't wait to read it. If you haven't already checked it out do it! What are you waiting for?

The concentration thing does come back but slowly. My third (and last) child just turned a year old and I swear I'm still missing brain cells. However, when they smile at you or tell you they love you none of that matters anyway. :-D

Congratulations, Vicky! I'm happy for you and your husband. Sounds like an exciting time! :)

Congratulations. OMG, I thought you were at TTN,were you? I'm usually never wrong about that. For some stupid reason the only psychic ability I have has to do with babies and pregnancy.

As for writing, I wrote my first just after having Brianna. Believe me sweetie, when you only have one and they are napping and you can't nap you can write. That's until they siting up and crawling.

Ooooh I am so excited!!!! I agree with Michelle totally, it'll all come back, don't worry.

If you have any questions, just email me.

So excited for you. As for writing, welcome to MOMMY BRAIN! Between being constantly distracted, tired-beyond-belief (during and after pregnancy), hormones, and just pure JOY & BLISS, your mind will never be the same again. You'll multitask like you NEVER thought possible (you think your busy and tired now? Heh heh heh) and accomplish feats you never thought you had the strength to do. And you can use all that raw emotion you'll be feeling into your writing.
Will you be at the next TRW meeting?
How far along are you??
You know, I'm not psychic like Amy, but when you've been posting about how tired you are, etc,... I was thinking - Sounds like she's preggers :)

I will not deny my psychic sense for babies. It's FREAKY!

I'm telling you Vicky, I knew the EXACT moment I got knocked up with Aidan. With Brianna I was too frustrated at trying for three months (which is nothing) that I didn't notice it.

Oooooh I am so excited for you!!!! This deserves ALL CAPS!
