Thoughts of a 20-something

Update

It’s been months. It feels like it’s been an entire lifetime. Highlights:

Pregnant – Ahhh first pregnancy. Due 5/8/16. Hubby and I are so thrilled and minorly terrified. I’ve never seen DH so happy and actually showing his emotions. He tends to be a very quiet internal person but he’s really super excited. As much excitement as I feel, I’m also nervous. We are just entering the third trimester and it’s getting real. I guess it’s time to put together the nursery a bit more and to make sure that we have the house settled!!

2nd year teaching Algebra – and man, is this year ever different from last year. The students that I have are polar opposites – this year they are polite and respectful, whereas last year… well it was a rough year to begin with.

Moose has passed away – poor puppy had some pretty advanced lung cancer by the time we caught it. He was put down shortly after Christmas, which was the right decision. We miss him desperately, and are heartbroken that our daughter will never meet him, but are so thankful for the 5 years that we did get to spend with the best dog in the world.

Honestly, I suppose that’s it. Mostly, I’m reviving this because of the pregnancy and impending family. I’d always meant to get more into blogging and I haven’t really made it a priority. I’d like to change that now.

So far, everything has been fairly textbook – normal symptoms (lucky me, I avoided most of the terrible morning sickness), normal check ups. I’m counting down the days to meet our daughter, and it can’t come nearly fast enough. At the same time, I don’t want to wish away this time as well.

I watched my coworker’s wife through her pregnancy last year. It was a hard pregnancy and I feel very blessed that mine hasn’t been terrible. I’d almost say that I’ve nejoyed being pregnant (although, its definitely not the best… I miss running. I miss bending over and painting my toenails and shaving my legs. And I miss a glass of wine with dinner. But the end result will be worth it right?). At least, that’s what I keep telling myself.

Here’s to the next 3 months and an entire lifetime after that!
