Vomit and Beyond...

Hello all. Sorry I didn't keep us on-track with a Million Miles blog on Monday. The good (bad?) news is I don't have a good excuse... I have a GREAT excuse. ;)

We moved on Saturday (woot-woot!) and are living in utter chaos. To make matters worse (actually, better in the long-run) we hired someone to help us out with our painting and he started first thing Monday morning. Nothing is where it belongs--instead, it is all piled in the middle of the great room. See the photo above? That's me with all our junk in the background. Sigh. I don't like living amid clutter, but puked-on clutter is unimaginably worse... Yup, my middle child got sick on Monday and ended up throwing up on my favorite chair, our couch, and the carpet. You'd think I would have wised up after it happened the first time and attached a bucket to his chin. But I don't think it would have helped... projectile vomit is never easy to contain.

At any rate, I hope you'll forgive me for taking a week to catch my breath (and pray that I don't get sick, too!). I'll be back on Monday with another post about Miller's book (we're up to chapters 10-12). I'll also be sharing an awesome recipe later in the week and a little insight into my upcoming release, Beneath the Night Tree.

Thanks for reading!


  1. I'll forgive you...this time. Ha! Just kidding. I am so behind on A Million Miles it's literally not very funny at all. I'm still on chapter three. I may end up commenting on all the posts after everyone's already finished reading the book. :( Anyway, hope your son gets better soon and that all goes well with painting and moving items in their proper places. Can't wait to hear more about your knew book!

  2. Sounds like you've had quite a whirlwind of a week! I have, too, though I'm sure it hasn't been nearly as busy as yours has. I haven't really had the chance to gather my thoughts and comment on your last post about Miller's book, so now I don't feel so bad. But I'm sure I will have lots to say next week. Can't wait to hear more about your new release!

  3. i feel your pain. Lord keep the mommies healthy and sane!

  4. Thanks for the support! Being a mommy is never easy... and rarely clean. :)
