Well, life is strange sometimes. I hadn't anticipated this moment coming so soon, but it has. It's been an eventful couple of weeks... okay. Several months, really. And it's all taking it's toll on me right now. We found out a few weeks ago that we're pregnant. We're expecting our third baby sometime in December. It's pretty monumental and life altering and just ... I don't know how to describe it.
Pregnancy hits me pretty hard, at least at first. Morning sick and I are friends all day long. And with a three year old and an 18 month old, it's pretty exhausting. I've tried to keep up with writing and blogging and all the stuff that comes with it, but I just don't have the energy to devote to it right now. It makes me kind of sad, but I've decided to take a break for a while. I'll still fit in writing time when I can, but I really don't have any idea how often that will be. I don't want to put any unrealistic expectations on myself. I want to cherish this time with my kids and getting ready for a new one.
It's funny. I'm sitting here crying about it, but I'm really happy. It's exciting. I just never expected to have such mixed emotions about taking a break. Blame it on the hormones, I guess. So, I'll see you when I see you. Stop by every once in a while. I'm sure that I won't be able to just back out completely. And I will be coming back as soon as I feel more balanced and energized.
Thanks, every one, for being part of my life. I hope you stick around. I like you!
