"Man Gives Birth"...News at 11

Hi everyone, Matt here.

First of all, on behalf of Lee and I, THANK YOU for making the launch of our new e-book such a wonderful experience.  We have already received a warm and encouraging response from many of you who are already enjoying the e-book and Gold Care Club.  Truthfully, I would say an e-book launch may be as close as I will ever get to pregnancy and giving birth, including "morning sickness," contractions, transition and, finally, the new baby.

Morning sickness for me was the feeling I got at 10 AM (T-2hours) when I discovered that neglected to do any testing of the system using Internet Explorer (I normally run Firefox.)  A quick check on my computer showed that I couldn't open the audio files from Explorer! It was about one hour and 59 minutes of utter panic as I tried to determine whether the problem was the coding or was with my Explorer settings (I now believe the problem was on my machine because we've heard no complaints from our customers.)

Contractions was dealing with the clock.  As time started running down and I was simultaneously on two computers, on the phone with our technical support in India, and had my youngest son, Alex, helping over my shoulder.  My Lamaze training from 21 years ago really paid off.

Transition came at 11:59 AM as Lee started counting down the seconds from the other room.  Phone in one ear, countdown clock in the other, coding as fast as I could while having a frantic text conversation with India (the term "chat" just doesn't do it justice!)

Birth came at noon, with Lee gently reminding me..."Honey, we are out of time, please upload it NOW!" (OK, the first seven words of that reminder probably reflects the glow of a new father who has already forgotten the pain of birth.)

And our new baby, "The Easy Truth About Homeschool Transcripts" was born!  Healthy, 7 lbs 6 oz;  8 1/2 x 11 inches.   No colic, sleeping through the night, already potty trained.  Perhaps I am getting ahead of myself, but we have nothing but great hopes for this baby.

I hope you enjoy her.  She is precious to us.  Of course, if you see a defect, please let us know.  Unlike children, e-books are really easy to change!

Blessings,

Matt

P.S.  Lee an I did some brainstorming this morning for what we want to add to the Gold Care Club in January!  It is going to be REALLY cool!
