New day….

New year….

New life….

New path….

I am one year older today.  Whether I am also one year wiser is….we-e-e-ll…debatable.  There have been a lot of changes in my life this summer as I’m sure you’ve picked up on, what with the deafening sound of crickets here at the bloggy.  Of course, that’s assuming anyone is still reading and I’m not so keen on myself as to think there is anyone left.  But just in case there is, I figure I got some ‘splainin to do.

In the last two months I’ve gained six pounds and lost my waistline.  I’ve quit knitting and blogging and pretty much ceased all internet activity except for that which I’m obligated to do.  I read like a fiend and sleep as much as possible.  I’m sick a lot but still find myself hungry several times a day.  I find it hard to fit everything into a day that I used to and my clothes don’t fit anymore.  My wedding ring is getting tight on my finger and I look in the mirror and wonder how much bigger I’ll get.  March seems a long way away but in other ways not long enough.

Have you guessed my secret yet?  My big news?  Yes, that’s right.  In about 5 months from now, we will be celebrating the arrival of our very own Knittymunchkin :)  I’m due March 9 and I’m completely petrified.  But excited too.

Needless to say, my life is going to change even more in the next few months and for the next couple years.  I’m not really interested in talking about any of this life changing stuff here at the blog and I don’t anticipate that changing for a while, but just in case I change my mind someday in the future, I’m not deleting this space just yet.  Who knows, maybe I’ll need some kind of outlet when I’m home with the baby after his/her arrival (I’ll be staying at home and quitting my job as early as November this year).  But until that day arrives, I just want to thank each and every one of you who has stopped by and taken the time to leave a comment or share a moment of kindness.  I’m sincerely grateful to all of you for your friendships throughout the last 3 years and I hope that this isn’t goodbye forever.  You each have given me something special throughout my blogging “career” and I hope that you know I cherish each and every one of you!  Thanks for always  being there!

Until we meet again…..
