No, I am not pregnant.
But I don’t blame you for kind of hoping that I am- I always hope that the bloggers I read will wind up pregnant.
Nothing like an unplanned pregnancy to make a blog more interesting!
I would have to say that our big news is a close second.
We are moving!
We found out for sure Friday, and we are moving on Thursday. Or maybe Friday. The movers can’t let us know until Wednesday. (ulcers, anyone?)
Can you guess where we are moving to?
Yep, we are heading to New York! And not just anywhere in New York. We are moving to the city that’s so nice, they named it twice – New York, New York!
Brian had a job opportunity fall into our laps, and we found that we couldn’t really turn down this new experience.
It is crazy!
It is stressful!
It is scary!
It is EXCITING!
And I am so proud of us for snatching up this opportunity and adventure. Way to live life Brian and Caitlin!! (patting myself on my back, feel free to join in…)
So, I am sorry if I am absent for the next several days (weeks?)while I throw away almost everything we own, offload a car, take a quick trip to Oregon to visit family, and then move across the country.
In the meantime, imagine me calmly folding things and putting them into boxes while my children laugh and play quietly.
Because maybe if we imagine hard enough it will happen?
(the reality involves stress-induced stomach aches, potty training regression, massive amounts of caffeine and sugar… And more!)
Oh, and a few facts about NYC:
- The population of the city is roughly 5-6 times more than the ENTIRE STATE OF IDAHO.
- I only know two people East of the Mississippi. One is a cousin in Minnesota. One is an Aunt in North Carolina. I know NOBODY in New York. (other than fellow bloggers that I am planning on stalking…)
-NYC is almost 3000 miles away from our family back in Oregon.
- I have never ridden in a subway or a taxi, and homeless people make me uncomfortable.
This blog is about to get a lot more interesting people!
(running inside to get the piece of gum that I promised he could have if he smiled for a picture…)
