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 random.org, 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!
