I have to say that the great thing about blogging with four people is that there is always someone to cover when things get a little crazy for someone else. We got a couple of e-mails asking about the whereabouts of Kristin and myself. (Hey, thanks for wondering!)
So let me give a quick update. Kristin and Brian are in the process of moving, and as you know that process has to start with putting your house on the market. The real estate market in the D.C. area (like almost everywhere else) is in a slump right now. Properties are sitting and sitting and sitting without selling. Fun time to try and sell. In God’s kindness, however, Kristin and Brian’s townhouse sold in under one week!
I think God was showing mercy to our entire family as Kristin was driving us all a little crazy with her frenzied cleaning to show the house. Vacuums were plugged in and running at all times. Clorox wipes were located in every room for easy access. Whenever I would drive by her townhouse at night, every light was on throughout the whole house. The place was glowing. Writing posts during that week was not a consideration. In fact, I’m not sure Kristin even remembered we had a blog.
But now it’s packing time. In fact, my mom is over at Kristin’s house right now helping her with that huge task. Next week Kristin and Brian will move into Brian’s mom’s house until their new house is ready. And that, my friends, is the long reason behind Kristin’s absence as of late.
And for me, well, this sweet baby inside of me still has me sick. Better than the first 14 weeks, but still making his/her little presence very well known. For example, last night at 10:30 I had to jump out of bed and run upstairs for a bowl of cereal (Corn Chex with sugar on top). Disaster averted! Everything stayed down and I was able to drift off to sleep with a much happier tummy. Pregnancy sickness is such a funny thing. But, I too, will soon be returning to my “post” to “post”.
That’s all the news from around here. Friday Funnies will be up later so come on back. Happy weekend!
