I sent my son an email on Wednesday. It read, “Pink or blue, I love you and Miranda and Baby Carlson.” The message was sent in anticipation of the ultrasound that was conducted that afternoon.

A Slice of Life: I am not going to keep you in suspense. In December, the Queen of the male-dominated Carlson family will be sharing her throne after Lady Miranda gives birth to a precious little Princess. Yes, the baby is a girl. Yesterday, sweet Dusty sent Miranda a dozen pink roses along with a note telling her what a good mommy she is going to be. There is no doubt. As for me, I cannot wait to meet her, and as the days are getting shorter and the evenings cooler, all of a sudden, December does not seem like it is so far away.
Now, to answer the question that might be on some of your minds. Where the heck have I been? Well, I haven’t been on vacation, although it might have helped my cause. No. I’ve been at work, at home, here and there but not much of anywhere except perhaps in the deepest creative rut I have ever fallen into. It hasn’t mattered what I’ve tried to do in my corner whether it be trying to come up with something original or copying someone else’s creation, nothing has worked.
In truth, the rut might extend beyond my corner – at least a little bit – because I haven’t been making any big strides in any other areas of my life either. While it doesn’t happen very often, there are times when even though nothing is wrong, things just don’t seem quite right. I’ll come around one of these days.
How are you? I hope life is treating you well and apologize for being absent for so long. With that, I am going to plant myself in my corner and see if I can’t come up with something for Simple Saturday. I’ll talk to you again then.
