The Truth Is...

Usually in November I do a NaNoReaMo (Natalie Novel Reading Month) thing to catch up on my massive TBR pile, but if you've noticed so far I've written all of one post in November. It wasn't about reading.

You see, I'm being honest with myself—the chances of me reading anything this month are extremely low. Heck, the chances of me writing anything this month are extremely low. Or editing. Okay, I probably will be doing very little to make myself a useful human being.

Because I'm sick. All day long. But don't worry! I want to be sick, and I hope I remain sick for a few more weeks. Yes, yes, if you haven't figured it out by now, I'm going to have a baby.

I don't usually talk about my family on this blog, but I'm very excited. I love, love, love my family. My kids are beautiful and the most important of everything, even when they render me useless on the work front. Or maybe especially when they do.

So if you will excuse my sparse posting and correspondence, I would very much appreciate. Horrifyingly enough, I can honestly say words make me nauseous right now!

  6. Congratulations, Natalie! That's awesome! I had a hard time writing during my pregnancy in 09/10: it was like all my "creative" energy was being taken up by some other effort ;) .

    Don't you think it's a little freaky that it takes a lot less time to create a whole human, than it does to create a book?

  32. Just out of curiosity, how many kids do you have right now?

    Congratulations!!!!! Having a baby is always a festive occasion for the entire family, for sure. In fact, my mom just had a baby two months ago - I HAVE A NEW BABY SISTER!! - and it's a really exciting affair for all of us.

    Best of luck.

  33. CONGRATULATIONS! Best reason ever not to work this month. I was sick as a dog during both of my pregnancies, so I sincerely hope that your morning sickness doesn't last too long. May you have an easy and healthy rest of your pregnancy! :)

  34. Congrats!! I hope you get over the morning sickness soon and can hopefully get back to reading. And NaNoReaMo is a great idea-I'm stealing that from you and going to read as much as I can this month!:)

  35. Congrats! That is so awesome. Yes, my daughter is the greatest thing in my life--she is my reason for being! Hope the nausea goes away though!

  36. Congratulations! I'd much rather you spend your energy on a new baby rather than new blog posts (although I do like those, of course). This makes me very happy! Go you!
