What's Really Going On Here....

So you might have noticed that things have been slowing down here a little.  And I feel that as friends, I should tell you why.  You see, I've been letting a whole lot of things fall through the cracks around here.  Here's the holding-back-nothing truth.

My house looks like a bomb went off.  And then another bomb.

My kids have eaten more Lunchables in the last month than any child ever should.

I have returned very few emails.

My laundry is a mess I just can't keep up with.

I leave the house very rarely and when I do you'd probably catch me with an unfriendly look on my face.

Now, you're probably thinking, "Dude, what's your problem?"  And it actually isn't a problem.  Now you're thinking I'm in denial.  Ha!  It's all actually a blessing....which I'm trying to remind myself.  Because something I have wanted for a very, very long time has finally happened for us.

We are pregnant.

(Baden has recently taken up pretending that he is, too.)

Many of you probably know that we've been trying for what felt like a very long time.  And so many of you shared your touching and challenging experiences with me, which was so kind and helpful.  I'll give you the whole fertility story soon, if you want details.

But in case you come here and wonder why I'm not posting everyday, that's why.  I've been really sick for over a month now.  I'm a little past 9 weeks, which is kind of early to be telling, but I'm not good with secrets when they're mine.  And that's the story.

Thanks for hanging with me.
