Where have I been?

I hope to be back soon with pictures, but before I leave you all panting for more news on life with Aiden, I wanted to tell you why I've been MIA. I've started working. Mike told me to get useful or get out...No, I'm just kidding, he's been extremely supportive of me because this is something that I wanted and needed. So what is this job of mine? Freelance writing. So it's perfect because I can stay home with Aiden, but I have something that I can do on the side during naps and early evening hours. Plus, my brain doesn't feel quite as mushy as it used to.

I hesitated to tell everyone about this until I was sure it was something I would enjoy and stick with. But it's really a lot of fun. There's no adrenaline rush like landing a job. When you realize that you have a commodity that someone else wants, wow, it's quite flattering. I finished my first job yesterday and God has already provided another one. This one may lead to more jobs. If anyone else out there is looking to start a freelance business, I highly recommend www.elance.com. and I'd be happy to talk with you more about it.
