i can’t seem to muster up more blogging-energy than what it takes to give short updates on what life looks like at the moment. on monday, i had a wonderful four-hour time away, courtesy of my husband, and i drove home feeling like writing something REAL, something more substantial. i had big words floating through my brain, too. man, it would’ve been good. but days passed and i forgot all about it, except that the idea existed at one point in time.
so this is what we’re up to — again — bullet-point style.
- bryan’s been gone for the past three days. we’ve been getting by beautifully, much more so than i expected. its amazing how easily the time can flow when you let go of your normal ‘rules’ in favor of sanity. (i.e. no eating out, no movies during the day, pre-set meal times, etc.) i’m resisting the urge to go to mcdonald’s for the second time. i really wish i had the array of american fast food at my fingertips during these trips.
- my husband loves me because i’m going to make him move our bedroom into another room — the third move in a year. its our first year in this place, and its a rather large house, and its taken me that long to figure out where everything fits best upstairs. so this will be the final move, i say. he laughed at me.
- we THINK we will be having a girl come june! my midwife couldn’t be certain because the baby wasn’t positioned quite right, but she’ll check again when we go back in a month. i was shocked at first, but am warming to the idea and have had fun imagining what a little lady will look like in our family!
