Time keeps on ticking

This is the longest gap between blog posts since I began blogging last fall. Life just gets busier and busier and it's hard to justify taking the time to blog when there is so much else to do. This will be a short one, too, just filled with updates.

I do this at night now too!
My little guy is finally, pretty much, sleeping through the night! Whoo hoo! At 17-months he'll sleep from 7pm to about 5:30 or 6am. Occasionally, I have to get up and find his pacifier for him, but thankfully that is usually before I've gone to bed myself. That troublesome cat, Milo, can be to blame for some of the very early morning wake-up calls. This morning he woke me up at 4:30am! He also woke up my sweet 4-year-old who, just as I started falling back to sleep after going downstairs to let the cat into his bathroom (the garage), woke me up because she couldn't find her little bear. I hate that bear. Then, once she was settled back to bed the little guy cried out. That was about 5am. I tried for a while to keep my pillow from allowing me to hear him crying, but it didn't work. But it isn't such a big deal now that I'm getting a decent amount of sleep 80% of the time. Yay!

We're in full swing with our private wine-tasting venture, which is fun and interesting and great on-the-job training. If we keep up at this pace we'll have a free trip to Italy next January, which is very cool! Looking to grow my team if any of you SAHM's want to earn a little extra by sipping wine at other people's parties!!

We're getting ready to sign an intent to lease on a property to open our retail wine store and I've been busy trying to save us money by researching Michigan liquor laws myself. If you know anyone you can answer my myriad questions without charging me $20 a minute, I'd appreciate you sending them my way!

And today... I am going to print out my manuscript and post it! Mark the date, people, because it often takes 4 to 6 months for a response. Today my picture book manuscript is getting sent out! It would be a dream come true for me to have a children's picture book on bookstore shelves!! Did I ever mention my reoccurring dream of living in a bookstore? I used to think it was just because I love books and bookstores so much, but now I'm certain (certainly hoping, anyway!) that I will be living in book stores through my books!

Off to start a great week! I hope yours is peaceful, productive and happy.
