Happy ICLW!Posted: February 21, 2014
Oops, I forgot that I signed up! Thank goodness for reminders, eh?
It’s been a while, and I haven’t posted in a couple weeks, so let’s have a nice getting-to-know-you post.
Hi! I’m April.
That’s entirely to cheery for how I’ve been feeling lately. Let’s take the exclamation point out.
Hi, I’m April. Welcome to my blog. If you’re new here, this started out as an infertility blog. You can read a timeline here. We called it quits with infertility treatments a while back to focus on foster adoption. Right now we’re just waiting to hear back from the DA, and then we can get home studied and start being foster parents. There’s so much less paperwork in family building the old fashioned way.
Let’s see, about me. I like to read, I like to cook, I like to write, I like to sew. My favorite book is The Waste Lands by T. S. Eliot. My favorite thing to cook is my vegetarian chili, but I’m not a vegetarian. My favorite thing to write is short fiction. My favorite thing to sew is pillows.
I have a husband, Ian, a stepdaughter, Abby, three cats and two turtles. Well, only one of the cats claims me, but you know how that goes.
I have two part time jobs, but I’m really a writer. Granted, that did not make me too much money last year, but it’s cool. I can’t wait to announce it at my next class reunion. They don’t need to see my 1099s.
I think that’s all for now. Ask me a question. I’ll answer.
