The Book.

I've been getting emails and comments asking about the book lately. I'm happy to tell you that I'm over half way done (as far as I can tell!) I've not had as much time to dedicate to it lately with so much traveling but I've made some good progress. As I write each chapter, I'm still blown away by all that happened. Hopefully I can retell it in such a way to really communicate the experience.

I have a new friend that happens to be an editor, convenient, huh? She was able (and willing) to read what I have so far and we're meeting this week to talk it over. This is my first person to read it that wasn't directly apart of the whole adventure so it's a little unnerving for me. Not sure what I'm going to do with it still but so happy that I decided to document the experience this way. I was rereading the first several chapters before I sent it to this editor and was surprised that I'd already forgotten details of our own story. It also made me squeeze my E-beast a little harder. Sometimes I think I cut off his oxygen for a moment but he bounces back. No worries.

Today I'm hidden in a corner at Bread Co, my happy place. Working on chapter 21. Excited for chapter 22. Missing this crazy kid but know he's playing unlimited amounts of baseball with Daddy today.
