The twins are a month old now and as healthy as ever. Mother is delighted, and Father is feeling as better as ever too. I intend to continue journaling, as I really enjoy it, but I know my life is very busy and I’ll feel bad or guilty that I won’t be able to keep up. So until the twins are older, and things become less hectic, my Journal will have to wait.


Not that my life is busy in a bad way. When you are busy, you have less time to worry. You have less time alone, but you feel less lonely and you feel more loved. I never thought I’d like being busy. But I actually love it. And I never thought I’d like change, but now, I think I’ve actually come to love it.
