It's Official

- Yesterday I received my first ever royalty check for my book--so I can now officially claim to be a paid author. Yay for me!

- My spring veggie garden is also officially under way. The weather here is just gorgeous and I am enjoying having the doors and windows open during the days. I have planted some zucchini and cucumber and another bell pepper plant in the garden. And my lettuce and tomatoes are loving the springy temperatures. Today I will plant some green beans and maybe some other seeds I have on hand.

- My husband has officially found the grossest way to get Kitty (daughter #1's nickname) to take her amoxicillin pill: he dumps the powder on top of a Reese's Peanut Butter cup and feeds it to her. I don't know if I will ever be able to eat a Reese's again without thinking of this grossness.

- Speaking of not eating Reese's anymore, I am officially less than five pounds away from reaching goal at WW. 4.2 left to go. I am trying to get there by mid-April.

  1. Hooray for you! Congratulations on the vegetable garden, on your husband finding a way to give the cat medicine, (however gross --but creative--that might be) but ESPECIALLY CONGRATS for the royalty check! That is certainly exciting. What are your plans of the money?

  2. -Wow, Becky! congrats on that; that is so cool!

    -So jealous! I can't wait for Spring, but we've got awhile left to go. I've been dreaming of gardening almost every night!

    -Awesome on the weight! good luck to you; I appreciate you so much for giving me the little push I needed to get started on WW myself.

  3. Those are all officially awesome announcements! (well, maybe not the meds on the candy thing) But I am so excited for you for your royalties, your garden and your weight loss.

  4. Oh, I forgot to tell you congratulatons on the weight as well. I probably just blocked that one out as it made me feel guilty for eating the chocolate kisses my husband gave me for Valentines while I was reading your blog. I am happy for you though. That is a great accomplishment!

  5. BECKY! Way to go girl!! :)
    And way to go Steve...we have a LOVE of medicine over here. So no need for the PB cups.

  6. Becky-
    That is awesome news. WAy to go. That deserves dinner out I think.

  7. Congrat Becky, many more to come I hope. Also thanks for the bag of goodies. The kids thank you.

  8. I thought I congratulated you already, but I guess I didn't! Congrats your book!

  9. Great stuff, Becky! Congratulations for all.
