3 exciting things happened yesterday:
First, I was given 2 free umbilical cord clamps (you know–that plastic doo-hickey) by a hospital clerk. Granted, this was after handing over $105 to have all my instruments sterilized, but still — one doesn’t need to be a novelist to read the clamps as a promise of the wonderful babies I’ll soon be helping to bring into this world.
Second, there was a two-for-one sale on organic peanut-butter at our grocery store. I mean: two-for-one, and organic! And peanut butter was on my shopping list! What are the chances?!
Third, Sima was ranked #1 on Amazon’s Jewish American fiction list. The list is updated hourly so I don’t expect I’ll be hanging around #1 for long, but look at my company – Amy Bloom, Elie Wiesel – I kind of wanted to photograph it for posterity.
And so it goes…I cheer for Sima from the sidelines, excited each time someone new reviews it on amazon or emails me about it; I run around collecting equipment and reviewing protocols and readying myself to begin work as a midwife on July 1st; and I hang around my home, reveling in time with the girls, in having the time to run errands or volunteer at Eva’s school or just plain play.
These are good days.
Oh, and here’s one more good thing (though I keep fretting about my hair):
