Things have been pretty quiet over here in For the Love of Books land. Well, on the blog at least. Life, on the other hand, has been anything but.
My twin baby girls were born on Sept 14th. They were born early, at 34 weeks (+ 2 days) and that meant they needed to stay in the NICU for a couple weeks. Which has meant I’ve been shuttling back and forth, constantly traveling to and from the hospital (half an hour away from home) and juggling NICU mom-life with my regular at home mom-life. It’s been pretty exhausting and emotionally very difficult.
Any hobbies, including reading and writing, have been basically not happening at the current moment. I have from time to time jotted out a few notes and ideas for stories and articles, using my phone, while a baby naps on me (or while feeding) or tried to read a couple pages of a book (currently working on reading Nine Perfect Strangers) while the girls sleep, but with 2 of them my hands are pretty full so it’s been less productive than I would like. But I wouldn’t have it any other way of course, as I’m just so in love with them so they’re worth it.
However, today they finally got to come home which means my family is now together and life is about to get even crazier. 🤍
With that said, I’ll be back with some bookish content soon.
