Happy Endings Blog Hop

Cue Beavis and Butthead laughter...



Happy endings romance giveaway hop

#HEGIVEAWAY

So the idea is to share a happy ending in your life. But I don't feel like I've had all that many "endings". Do you? I feel like I'm still in the middle of so much and really, it's just too soon to tell. The two best happy endings I can think of are my pregnancies. Two healthy children, the beauty of epidurals. Win/win. With my son my water broke at a book signing. That was spectacular. And at the hospital, they gave me an epidural and I was so relaxed I watched some of the winter Olympics - Brody Miller, to be exact. And then when it came time to push it was over and done in 45 minutes. I felt like a rock star. Lucy's birth was a bit more nerve-wracking, mostly because we'd been told she was going to be over ten pounds and I didn't want to feel any part of that. But the epidural wasn't working, so they kept pushing more pain meds. (I would pass out between contractions and then when the pain started I would wake up like a Bear coming out of hibernation, YELLING at everyone and then the pain would subside and I would apologize and pass out). But then Lucy's heart rate slowed down and the doctor had to give me a stern talking to about pushing. It was all very surreal but in the end, I had a beautiful, not nearly ten pound baby girl. So those are my two happy endings.!

My happy ending is being forced to move back in with my parents due to the economy and then realizing that I was heading down the wrong career path. So, I headed back to school and am now three months from graduating with a second bachelor's degree!

My happy ending was watching my daughter graduate from High School and then watching her grow up into the amazing person she is becoming. She is only 19 now so she will still have plenty of growing pains but so far, she has made me a proud mommy!

Thanks for the great giveaways. I love the name and idea of your blog. Maybe I need to start a drunk readers blog?

Best wishes,
Marlena
