Three Big Announcements from a Slacker

Blog slacker? I suppose. I'm about 1/2 way done with the promised political articles. I'm being very thorough. In the meantime, I have some big announcements to make.

1) We just bought one of these:


2) Because we found out we're having one of these:


3) Which is why I'm going into surgery tomorrow (yay for cerclages) at one of these:


WHAAAAAAAAAAAO. I know. I was shocked, too. I didn't figure it out until I was 8 weeks (I'm 12 weeks tomorrow). But I'm just plain excited now. Well, and scared, too. I really hope this pregnancy goes well.

2011Res: Technically, it's not 2011 anymore, but I'll do one last one for old time sakes. To Matt: I LOVE that you are amazingly detail oriented for all the little to-dos of buying a new van. To my girls: today I savored Heidi doing all in her power to reach light switches and say "OFF!"--even when I'm trying to do my make up. And Brynn got me good when her new bedtime stalling tactic was to scratch Daddy's back (he didn't mind AT ALL). Dear Mr H: today I finished sorting the laundry AND delivering it to our rooms even though I was exhausted because I love you (and because I know you're out of underwear).

EEK! :D I can't tell you how excited I am for you! And like your other friends said, I hope this is a long and boring pregnancy! Good luck with your cerclage tomorrow. I wish there was something I could do to help you out since you'll be needing to take it easy, but I'm still trying to figure out how to be a mom of two. But I'll certainly keep you in my prayers!

Exciting! and Congratulations! Hope it all works the best ever (meaning baking inside you for as long as needed and no long hospitalization). I hadn't been on here for awhile, but just had an inkling at church today-so I had to check if there was any news. Also congratulations on your art successes as well. Your picture is beautiful. I love it! You are so talented!
