Congratulations to Maegan and Lee on the birth last week of their second beautiful daughter (in two years), Grace Carraway! I LOVE that name, Hemphills, and can't wait to meet the little sister.The "w" key on my keyboard is starting to go and it is driving me out of my mind.

I've got a new freelance editing thing going on as of last week and I'm pretty excited about it. It pays by the article instead of by the hour, which I like. I'm supposed to work at least 12 hours a week (with flexibility for things like vacations and having babies), but if I want to work more there's no maximum and no shortage of articles. Plus, I get paid every week, which I don't think I can say for any other job I've ever held. It seems like it will fit in nicely with the other bits of freelancing I'm doing, plus real estate.

Even though I've had a string of bare-bones posts lately, I'm quitting here because I really want to get out of this office and go visit Amanda and Bri. So ... later.

* Sure, this is a cliche, but it's true. And it applies not only to relationships but to life. It's not an excuse to settle, just a reminder that the grass isn't greener on the other side of the fence.
