It’s finally spring in Duluth

First of all, I have to say thank you to everyone who bought my book after I announced it! It has been tremendously exciting to see my numbers on Amazon and to get the email notifications for books sold through this site. I never expected to sell a million copies or anything, but I also never expected to feel so encouraged by selling a handful of copies, either.

I don’t have much to blog about today. My knitting projects have been on hold, and I don’t have any finished stories to post. I mostly blame it on fatigue, but I wish I had more motivation and more time. It’s spring, which means preschool conferences are upon me, and most of the time I’m not napping because of pregnancy fatigue, I’ve been focused on getting those done. Really, that’s not much of the time, because I fall prey to spontaneous naps more than I would expect.

Also: pregnancy brain. I didn’t really believe it was a thing, or I didn’t really want to blame anything I did on it. It just seemed like making excuses. However, this past week I completely forgot about 3 major obligations, and I was forced to admit that maybe I really do have pregnancy brain a little bit. I managed to remember to bring in a teakettle to show the kids about evaporation and steam, but forgot more major things like an appointment and needing to come to work earlier one day. Frustrating, to say the least. And embarrassing!
