Why I’ve Been MIA….
So………would you like to know why it is that I had been MIA for a few weeks there back? Watch this:
Yes, it’s true. There is a human being growing inside of my body. And eventually…..it’s going to want to come out. And when I say eventually, by that I mean September.
With four weddings on the books for September, I wouldn’t say it was my ideal timing. But obviously, it isn’t the least bit about MY timing. God clearly had other plans….plans to prosper me and not to harm me. Plans that are crafted with absolute PERFECTION.
Guys – can I be honest for a minute? I was floored….FLOORED to find out that I was preggo. Although, I guess shocked and panicked would be better words to describe my reaction. Now, the further along in this process that I get, the more sane that I get. As I increasingly regain my sanity, I look back to become more and more embarrassed at how I initially reacted. It’s a true wonder that my husband is still my husband after he saw me at my craziest.
Now, that’s not to say I’m still not totally freaked out. However, I’m SURE that once we meet Baby Schultz, I will agree with everyone that the tiny baby is singlehandedly the best dang thing that ever happened to me. But right now…..I’m too focused on being dramatic. I’m worried about the fact that I already had to buy a belly band to help me fit in my jeans. I’m dreading that I will be 8 months pregnant in August. And, I’m trying to cope with the reality that I have to actually BIRTH a child. Oh. My. Goodness.
So as for why I’ve been MIA…..I have been sicker than a dog. So sick that most days all I could muster was to roll myself out of bed around 11am to grab an eggo waffle or two and then flop down on the couch….where I’d stay…..all….day….long….in a constant state of feeling horribly carsick. Why they call it “morning” sickness is beyond me….because I was laid out for the majority of the day and night. So, if you are one of those people who waited a ridiculously long time for an email response….or perhaps never got that voicemail returned…..please consider this my official apology. I’m happy to report that it seems I am now back in commission.
I guess I share these feelings less for you the reader, but more for myself…..so I can look back at this months from now…years from now…..and laugh at how ridiculous I was….and shake my head at how little faith I had.
p.s. – super cute animation that Geoff created, right? My husband is one talented guy no doubt. And is he excited, you ask? Geoff has wanted to be a dad for as long as he can remember…..so yes. I would say he is bursting at the seams in excitement. :)
