2009, what a year

It’s freezing here today. I mean absolutely freezing. My darling husband had to go downstairs and stick the heat on before I could even get out of bed and now I am here listening to the sounds of the radiators pushing the heat through our newly renovated but still old, in some spots, 1920’s center hall colonial. The house may be warming but I am still cold.

The baby has been sleeping well through the night. I almost don’t want to jinx it by saying it aloud, but he has been as I have complained bitterly for three months, I thought perhaps I should give him credit where credit is due. The last five nights, he has slept all the way through.

My oldest son wrote his name Christmas morning for the first time and I was so tremendously proud of him. He’s four. But, now it’s really gotten me thinking about the passage of time, how quickly a year moves, two years…five…ten. My husband and I, between dating and marriage, have been together for the better part of this decade. Somehow I blinked and we have three children, two dogs, two cats, a house, cars, and jobs. Wasn’t I just wondering around Tulane Law School buying coffee at the PJ’s coffeehouse and looking around New Orleans for ‘real’ New York style bagels?

Just last February, I was unpublished. We were away, I was newly pregnant with my aforementioned sleeping child, and we were in Disney with the kids. I had submitted Her Wolf to Liquid Silver Books and they amazed me by buying it while we were on vacation.

Since then Her Wolf released as well as its sequel Summer’s Wolf. Love Beyond Time came out from Eirelander Publishing. January 4th and January 11th I have two new books coming out: First Dimension and Yes, Captain from Liquid Silver Books. Needless to say, writing wise, it has been quite a year.

From my family to yours, I wish you a happy, healthy, and blessed new year. 2010 should be even better!

Congrats on your success!

Tell me about it! When we started this blog we only needed one book cover slide show. Now we have three. Heck, Sandi has her own slide show. LOL I don't know what to do with the ones on their way.

Look at the blue list of books available and it's going to get real long over the next two months. Things are going to get crazy on PR.

I'm so excited! I can't wait to see where next year will bring us.

Congratulations, Rebecca!

It sounds like you've had quite a year.

I agree with you about the passage of time. It seems like only yesterday DH and I were getting ready for our daughter's birth. Now she's nine. How did that happen?

I wish you (and your lovely blog mates) much success in the coming year.

There have been issues with people unable to post so this is a test.

Hey Rebecca

Amazing year - congrats! Yeah, time flies. Met up with some high school friends over the holidays and cannot believe it's close to a decade since we were together just being silly girls who thought putting on babydolls and hair in pigtails at 17 was sooooo cute! Lol. My man and I have been together for the best part of the last decade too and it feels to me like we only met yesterday, but got the 6.5 yr old kiddo, car, jobs and mortgage to prove it's been longer...

Huge hugs, & Happy 2010!
