Todd & I had a lot of changes this summer.
He started a new job. It was a HUGE life changing job for our family. It was/is Todd’s dream job & has the potential to build his career so that he always is able to work in his dream field. He loves it, he’s so much happier now, I love it that he loves it, oh & it doesn’t hurt that I’ve gotten a few date nights out of it right?
With the new job change, came a new commute as well. He drives 45 minutes each way, every.single.day. That turned our world upside down. It got us talking about should we move, we love our neighborhood, we’ve only lived in our house 2 1/2 years, we love this house, but the commute is a killer, etc etc etc.
THEN…right after the new job, came another HUGE & HAPPY blessing…
We couldn’t be more thrilled!
But, I won’t lie… I’ve been a hot, neurotic, vomiting, sick, emotional mess with this kiddo.
Poor Todd. He politely & as sweetly as could be done, told me he hates pregnancy. And I absolutely, 100% agreed. Me & pregnancy? We do NOT get along. I’d rather pull all nighters, be vomited on, change diapers, deal with diaper rash, & any other hard part of parenting than do pregnancy. But, the reward at the end is oh so sweet. So, I’ll keep on keeping on.
I’ve also been cleaning like crazy, like seriously, I’m a crazy person. Todd came home to me on my hands & knees scrubbing the kitchen floor with a brush because I wanted the grout lines cleaned. Then one weekend it was the laundry room. The other day, I called Todd in a panic because my closet was a wreck. He came home from work & cleaned the entire closet, then we did the bedroom, I’ve cleaned out from underneath all the beds. Trust me, it’s bad. Next weekend…we’re hitting the garage. Hopefully, getting the carpets professionally cleaned will happen in the next couple of weeks. This baby is not coming home to messy house!
Taking the pregnancy test also jolted me into some major prioritizing. I felt that it was time for me to wrap up the design business, take a break from blogging, & spend time with Lboy & Todd while we have 40 weeks together before everything changes (and try to suffer through the first trimester with some dignity until I felt better. :))
I’m glad that I have finally been able to share it with you all. I can’t wait to keep you updated on all the crazy fun!
