I'm sitting in Nicole’s room writing this post from her new notebook computer, my old computer. Juergen (who feels a little helpless) bought me a new computer yesterday. I needed a new computer. Mine (now Nicole’s) didn't have enough storage. I take up allot of space with my photos and digital scrapbook stuff. Nicole just signed a contract with a publishing agent in New York. They had an independent agency critique her first book. They said she has a real talent for story telling. She only needed to make a few grammatical changes. The agency will move directly to marketing her first book (she has written 10 books so far in a series of 15).
Sarah is sitting with Nicole playing play mobil. Juergen has taken the boys swimming. I have lots of time. I've cleaned the kitchen, dinning room, and living room. I took a hot bath. I'm going to give Jessica a bath now. I have lots of time because Sarah will not play with me. Everyone goes back to school and work tomorrow. Sarah will be stuck with Mom alone. My stomach hurts when I type that! We would have a wonderful time if she would just accept me! But that is tomorrow. Today I can tell you about Nicole's big news. Perhaps you will be able to buy one of her books at a Target, or a Wall Mart near you! Isn’t that cool!!!
