You’d think that I’d be a little more prepared. I’ve had this blog post in my head for weeks. And yet my mind is foggy now. So we’ll back up a bit.
Remember when I mentioned that Chloe has dropped a pound and a half? We started playing with her more – mainly in the morning, when I’m sitting on the couch eating breakfast. I used to rush to get out of the house in the morning – exercise, shower, get dressed, grab breakfast to eat in the car. There’s a reason for all of that.
I haven’t been running as much lately. Makes me sad. I hate running in cold weather, but even when it’s been in the 50s, I’ve had the hardest time motivating myself to get up and go.
And my complete exhaustion? There’s a reason for that too.
You see, as I let 300 of my closest Facebook friends know this morning, it appears that we’re going to be having a baby this year. End of August to be exact.
We told our parents many weeks ago. When I told my mom that she couldn’t say anything, I believe her exact words were, “Are you going to be able to keep this off of Facebook and your blog?” And I told her that I would even be able to keep it off of Twitter. It killed her to keep it quiet (and I know other family members have been dying to talk about it.)
How proud am I of keeping this in? 🙂
And somehow, I managed to take on and complete a pretty large work project for the past three months – without calling in sick even once. I impress myself sometimes.
So there you go, blog land. The reasons for my exhaustion, Chloe’s weight loss, my inability to ride in cars (that I’ve managed to keep off of Twitter and my blog!) and my lack of desire to run. Oh, and I think my urge to change out door knobs this morning can possibly be attributed to this.
We’re having a baby.
