I've been meaning, every day, to write a quick post to let you'uns know that my blogging may be a bit sporadic over the next little bit.
I have taken a new contract gig that has me pretty busy from now until nearly the end of the year. It's a brand new project for me, so I've spent the last week desperately trying to get up to speed and nailing down my roles/responsibilities.
The good news is I have work until the end of the year. The bad news is I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment and am likely to remain this way until the project comes to an end!
I miss writing AND reading everyone's blogs. My Google Reader said I have nearly 1,000 posts to catch up on. That knowledge simply added to my feelings of being behind the eight ball, so I simply shut Google Reader down. If I can't see it, it's not real, right?
This new gig is not only a great business opportunity for me, but after it comes to an end, April and I are going to focus on starting our family. We've talked about it non stop for three years and if we don't do something soon, we'll look like the kid's grandparents before it graduates kindergarten.
We are researching adoption avenues right now and are keeping our fingers crossed we might have a new addition to the family next year! We are considering open adoption which moves at a quicker clip than closed adoptions. I also haven't given up on wanting to have a child myself.
Knowing that this new job might be stressful, April did a very April thing...
I traveled to Atlanta last week and as I was unpacking my suitcase, I found a wrapped gift and a small card.
The card read:
"I love you so much and miss you. When things get rough or you feel overwhelmed, just remember what's next for us..."
I opened the gift.
A book of children's bedtime stories.
With an inscription from Apes:
"To the best mommy-to-be."
How can you not love her?
