A cause for celebration!

Woot!!  This evening we popped the cork on the bubbly we didn't drink New Year's Eve.  ON A WEDNESDAY NIGHT!!  Why the celebration, you may ask?
Here's the scoop:

V's book proposal has been accepted by the publisher. Woo Hoo!!  Now he just has to write the thing and have it ready for an October release.  Of course, he expects to make enough money to maybe buy a beer but, heck, it's a book deal.

In more immediate work news for him, his friend has been named director of advertising for the business she was out here visiting a while ago and is sending more freelance work his way.  This means that things are definitely looking up for me cutting my work hours.  If he can get his freelance business really up and running maybe I can go down to 80% someday in the future...  or, more likely not....  we still have three children to educate.


  1. A lot of good news!! yea!! Congrats to your hubby for getting the book deal and getting more to write about from his friend! Hopefully in a few months you'll be cutting back your work!! I'll keep my fingers crossed!!!...debbie
