There are lots of changes on the brew in my future and I can't wait! Change can be downright scary, but it can also be pretty exhilarating. You know how when you get more and more responsibilites as life goes on and everything begins to become routine? Well, that has been me for far too long. Not that routine is such a bad thing, but when you start to feel like Bill Murray in Ground Hog day, there's a problem. It's time to switch things up a bit! So, that's just what I intend to do. I dug up some old scans for this post of my lovely sister-in-law Charlotte, when she was pregnant with my equally lovely neice, Anna. No, I'm not pregnant........yet, but my husband and I hope to be in the near future! The clock is a ticking and I'm not getting any younger, so it's time. Tharin definitely needs a little brother or sister. (sister, sister, sister, with fingers crossed) We've put it off for far too long. There were so many lovely things about being pregnant, feeling the baby move, the anticipation of being a parent, eating whatever you wanted and feeling no guilt........until after the baby was born and you're fifty pounds over weight of course! There were also a lot of horrible things about being pregnant, and that seems to be what has stuck in my mind the most. Swollen ankles, and I mean SWOLLEN, heartburn, back-ache, dead tiredness, the fifty pounds of extra weight I mentioned earlier.......I could go on, but I won't. The actual part of child-birth was no walk in the park either. All that being said, it was all worth it in the end and I now have a wonderful little boy to show for it. I think I'm finally willing to give it another go. Six hundred and fifty dollars later, I've gotten the green light and thumbs up from the doctor to commence procreating. I'm sort of hoping a certain friend of mine gets pregant around the same time so we can go through it together, but we'll see what happens. You know who you are!
That is just one of the many changes to come for me (hopefully).
