A Winner Announced and My Life Is Changing

Friends.  I said I would announce the winner yesterday, but I was busy hunting for apartments instead!  Ack!

So.  I'm late.  My sincere apologies.

The winner, thanks to, is Miri!  Send me your address (at hereeverymomentcounts [at] gmail [dot] com) and I will send you a copy of Looking Up: A Memoir of Sisters, Survivors, and Skokie.

For the rest of you, I strongly encourage you to read this book.  It's available on Kindle and in paperback at stores everywhere.


I start school on Monday.  I read the syllabi of my classes last night and am already 7 chapters, 2 papers and several little essays behind.  In between hyperventilating sessions, I remembered that I'm starting a master's program and must start acting, thinking, and writing like an intelligent person.

I think this might be harder than I expected. (At least it would be if I had known what to expect in the first place.)  (Granted, it's hard to know how difficult any program is until you actually start.)

And since Ben and I like having big changes all at once, we will also be moving next weekend (if things go as planned), and he starts his new job the following Monday.  Thank goodness I still have 5.5 months until baby #3 is due.

So I will all but disappear from this space for the next little while as we adjust to, well, everything.  Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck sweet girl!! Let us know if there's anything you need:)

    Melanie and Wayne

  2. Wow! I'm sending productive vibes your way! Hang in there and just write. And breathe. Don't forget that part. =>

  3. Ah, I like big changes all at once too... (maybe?)

    Good luck with the move, the program, the many shifts and changes. Take it a moment at a time, you'll do great!

  4. Hope everything goes well hun! :)

  5. Good luck indeed! And good for you, Amber. I always found school to be energizing and thrilling. (A little weird, I know.) But what an exciting time for you and your family!

  6. Lots of changes, but it sounds like good stuff! Wishing you the best.

  7. Oh my goodness...good luck! That's a lot for one person. Hang in there!

  8. Belated best wishes on all of these transitions. I have faith in you! You guys are made of strong stuff! xo
