learning life

Lovin the life that brings me home.....

here it is!

Since February, I have kept a dirty little secret from blogosphere.

Well, Its not dirty,
and not really little,
and unless you know me solely by blog, not really secret-ish
I do like a snappy beat. And a little bit of dramatic effect.

I have been doing some scheming and wondering out how
I would announce this grand adventure
on print.

Then I gave up, because life happened, I got sick every morning for about a month and a half,
And lost all the nerve to do anything.
Especially blog.
Especially blog about THAT.

It was sucking the zip out of every day.
Life was so very grey and selfish - I must hate to admit.
My steps were unsprung.

I do hate to complain on my posts because I am all about memories.
Particularly the good ones.
But life is just life sometimes.

The good, the messy, stinky, unkempt, and downright vomity (quite literally- but I don't want to talk about it).

But then I felt it move.........................
laying in bed I felt a jump. Like swift poke in the gut.
But being out of town for the week, there was narry a thought to do much about it.
I just did a little happy dance, and fell asleep happy
Fast forward 5 days to tonight.
Here's me:
laying in bed watching 'Kate plus Ei8ht' on laptop next to snoring husband.

Yes, I am still a Kate follower.
Its a little embarrassing.
Like saying you still like N'sync or Backstreet boys.

whilst on my left side, I felt a jolt come from my right side.
It moved inside me again!
This time of all times, for sure, it wasn't dinner talking back.

I am overwhelmed with the idea of loving a new life.
My heart just grew a fourth time.
And I finally feel well enough to excitedly proclaim:
October will be a magical month.
