Feelin' good

Heard the heartbeat of darling #3 yesterday. It never ceases to amaze me what a thrill it is to hear the heartbeat like that. Listen to me; I sound like a grizzled old veteran. Geesh.

There's really not a whole lot to report. The Husband and I keep transcribing and kid-raising away our 2007. We're doing great in the business, and Blue Eyes is starting to take 4 or 5 steps on her own.

Now, I'm going back to bed. That sounds good just typing it...

I know, it's been so long...

Since I last posted. Between transcription, Blue Eyes and The Talker, and the yucky-yuckies from the first month of preggo, I've been up to my eyes in stuff.

Even the down times are busy. There's a huge Netflix queue of movies that the husband and I haven't seen yet, and it's calling my name right now.

But I'm too tired, and that's the other thing. I need to sleep. More. This daylight saving time change thing from April to March couldn't have come at a worse time.

Oh, well. At least, this is the most to gripe about. Nice, eh?

Quick note

We discovered some shocking and unexpected, yet delightful news yesterday. I'm pregnant again! This wasn't quite in the "plan," so to speak, but we're thrilled to welcome another member to our active and entertaining family. The kids are, of course, too young to understand that they will have another sibling, but once the wee one arrives in October I'm sure sounds of "bee-bee" will fill the house.

I'm feeling great. I just have to take good care of myself so I don't get confined to rest like I did with Blue Eyes. The Talker will be 2 1/2 when Little Precious is born, and Blue Eyes will be 20 months. As if we didn't already have our hands full...

I timed it

You ever feel pride at the silliest things?

So The Husband and I are taking a break to watch silly TV, aka Prison Break and Heroes.

And I timed the catch perfectly.

I called it 10 seconds before it happened. I counted down to it, 3, 2, 1... and it happened just like I called it.

So let it be written. So let it be done. I rule.

Success? No way!

Okay, so we decided to start this transcription business a little bit before Christmas. We didn't actually start the business at that point, we just decided to start it. We made a few preemptory phone calls in an attempt to start the solicitation process, but since it was "the holiday season" we didn't have much resonse.

During the first week of January we went full board and really hit the marketing hard. We are not naive - we realized that it takes a while to build some decent business.

Then ---- oh, then --- this week started.

We have acquired three clients this week, two of whom are HUGE and our calculations for this month show that we will make at least $2000, if not more. That's half our montly expenses! We can hardly believe how successful this little venture is turning out in such a short time.

There still remains a lot to be seen, but what a great start.

Oh, and by the way, we celebrated our three year wedding anniversary this week....happy us :-)

And the kids are practically all recovered from their first-of-the-year bout with illness.
