I’m not gonna lie… this has been really fun. But I really didn’t intend to leave anyone hanging. Chris has been out of town all week, and the kids have been on winter break. Need I say more? Kids home all day + no husband = absolutely NO downtime. Throw in all the
bribery Valentine candy my kids have been sucking down while I try to clear a path from the den to the kitchen and you probably don’t even want to imagine my week. So while I have been thinking about posting for a few days, I haven’t had the time or the energy to actually sit down and write something coherent. Plus, it has been awfully fun to watch you guys squirm read your comments.
Desiree, who refreshed the blog multiple times to see if a new face popped up in the header, you are quite the Nancy Drew. I actually had thought of doing that. But I didn’t.
Stacy came up with “Talkin’ Thursday” to see if that would bring on some additional details. Talkin’ Thursday does have a certain ring to it. But with the non-stop chaos descending on mi casa, one word was about all I could squeeze out.
And then Susan made me just about spit out my coffee with her guess… pregnant?? Bwahahaha!! Oh goodness, no. No no no no no no no. Did I already say no?? But it does sort of look like a pregnancy test ‘YES’, doesn’t it?
And Linn came out with the big guns: a hard core guilt trip. And after all she’s been through recently, well, she’s got quite the arsenal. Still praying for that EMH for you, my friend!!
Sweet Shannon is due any day now (and boy, do I know what that feels like) so she kindly requested that I spill the beans before she’s forced to take her laptop into the delivery room to check for updates. Goodness, woman. We just can’t have that.
Eileen came awfully close. Working on the No Hands But Ours site has been incredibly eye opening. And inspiring. Your stories have made me laugh and made me cry. A lot.
Then Sara made me bust out laughing when she said she and a few girlfriends had agreed to notify the others if they saw an update first. Who saw this one first, ladies??
And Leslie, thank you so much for all the smiley faces and exclamation points. For goodness sakes, who can resist you??
Onto the stuff you’ve been waiting for. As you guys probably know, in the past I have kept quiet for the first few months. Sort of similar to a pregnancy: you don’t want to share it with too many people… just in case. In our situation, it’s been just in case China says no. But we found out yesterday that China said YES. That’s right. For you guys who thought Tori was getting married (not) or I had a bun in the oven… no way, Jose. And if you thought I’d be cruel enough to post my nine balloon picture over a puppy or a gerbil, well, I might be mean, but not that mean. It IS China. And it’s a baby. A baby girl.
