It's offical

“I am happy to inform you that Teresa Ballard has won 2005 SASE/Jerome Fellowship with an award of 3500 dollars” and I think I also won a nanny named Lola;)

I’m so excited and I have absolutely no one to celebrate with at the moment. I told the girls and they rewarded me by blinking twice. Oh the joys of being a mother writer.

Lisa, I am flying into Boston on the 10th of October and staying a week which with my family = 3 months.

I am alone with three girls so my celebration is chocolate ice cream with sprinkles though I may have vodka after bedtime;)
