For those of you who have followed the story about my novel being plagiarized and the subsequent harassment, you know that the past two and a half weeks hasn’t been easy for me.

Then it happened. Yes, you guessed it. Lisbon threw up all over Liana’s throat and shirt.
We are now very close to holding our baby in our arms. If Lisbon does not make an appearance by herself this coming weekend (26-28th), we will induce labor on August 30th.
I’ve decided to take baby steps. A few paragraphs on my novel here, a load of laundry there, answering an email between naps. It’s slow going.
One day sometime after the ultrasound, I had a horrible thought. I had absolutely no preparations in place for a baby. Where we now stood, my little girl would be coming home from the hospital completely nude!
