Heather - Congrats on the column at blue Star families - I really enjoyed your 1st post...I just cannot imagine how you do it. We just returned from DC (we went for spring break) and I totally lost any form of composure at Arlington Nat'l. In fact, all of the memorials are so moving. I need to get involved in some kind of program where you send thank you's to soldiers (so do tell if you know of any).

I am WAY behind on reading everyone...in case you are planning a trip to Disney, my last post is a review of a terrific Disney guidebook. http://thesinglemotherschronicles.com

Hello all,

Heather - congrats - I will get to voting!

Stefanie- Congrats..I love what youhave accomplished because you certainly chose to make your life happen!

Jillian - great post - the coming back early...too funny sounds just like me.

You guys have been wonderfully supportive, and I must admit, this week was a little tough. Part of it is because ALL three of my little ones have been with me for over a week (SIGH). But I do feel that the writing has really tapped into and stirred some of those buried emotions. Not in a bad way, but you guys know how it is...you can feel it kinda churning around.
My husband is dodging me a bit. I think he can see it in my eyes that I am a little touchy.

Anyhoo, just wanted to let you all know, that your blogs, your thoughts and comments have greatly impacted me.

Hi All!
I have 2 happy bits of news I'd love to share with you. First, I made it to the top 5 of the MILbloggie awards, which put me through to the voting stage. If you have a minute, I'd love for you to vote for me (you have to register but I know a few of you already have): http://milblogging.com/votestandings.php?mode=branch. (I'm in the military spouse category.) Thanks!

Second, I was recently offered a position as a weekly columnist with Blue Star Families (it's an organization for military family). I'll be writing about the ups and downs of being married to a deployed service member, and my first post went up yesterday! http://bluestarfam.org/drupal/?q=node/2853.

Thanks for all your support! Hope everyone had a happy Easter!

Shauni, check the web for a list of illustrators for your book. In this economy you are bound to find one for cheap. I have done the self publishing thing and would highly encourage it. I used create space and was very satisfied with them. You can check out all my books as slide shows on my site at http://www.jazzyseries.com

Hi All!
Terri--Welcome to MBC! I'm your newest follower and I look forward to reading more about it. I checked out that website and realized I have been there before, but it's been awhile. So thanks for the reminder!

Alexandra--I'm your newest follower too! I LOVE your subtitle that you can't use your friends as therapists forever. So true! Looking forward to reading more.

Meagan, Peryl, and Jillian--Thank you so much for the nominations and the kind words! As always, I am so thankful to be a part of this group.

I'm off to read more of your blog posts! Have a great Easter weekend everyone!

Heather

Welcome Alexandra, I'm sure that your youngest got his brains from you, right?

Judging from your last post, we are lucky to have such a fun loving new member and I look forward to reading more stories about you and your family. Thank you, BTW, for subscribing to my blog.

To let us all get acquainted better with you, we hope that you and Terry and other new members of the group send us a link to your favorite posts.

Today, I am recovering from the shock of transitioning from beach to a foot of snow and hibernating in my office to write and visit all of your blogs.

Peryl, I have signed in before to your paper but will gladly do it again so that I can keep up with your wonderful writing. Also, I know a wonderful woman in our valley who has an organization for abused children and I have been trying for months now to get her to write a post on my blog about it. Thank you for reminding me to contact her again.

Heather, I will be sure to nominate you for the same reasons that Meagan mentioned.

Beth, I too appreciated what you said about catering to different writing styles. I find it sooo difficult to stay focused when I am trying to freelance, build a writing business and remain true to my blog. At some point, something has to go and I'm afraid it will be my blog.

Ha! Dear Jill: thank you for your help. Me, over here, Nimnuts over here, had to have my youngest tell me, "Mom? you need to sign in." Voila! Signed in, and got in.

The future is secure with my little one here, and his techno knowledge. Thank you!
