There are some serious changes coming down EZ's Street in 2012. Two major ones, to be exact. I suppose it's time to fill ya'll in (channeling my South Carolina...)
Major Change Number 1
And hence the reason I haven't been blogging. I have felt like hell. (Actually, I'm sure there are a lot of women who have it a lot worse than I did. But that doesn't make one feel any better when one is going through it.) Except for heartburn*, I have had every single early pregnancy symptom you hear about...and even some you don't. Large amounts of snot? Who knew??
But as we approach the end of the first trimester and begin entering the second I am feeling TONS better. My energy has returned and my emotions have stabilized. I have stopped having intense food cravings (for the most part). And while I still get green around the gills occasionally, it isn't NEARLY as bad as it was. So hopefully, I can get back to blogging a little bit more regularly again.
*According to the Old Wives, this means my baby is going to be as bald as an egg when it comes out.
Major Change Number 2
Slightly less exciting than a baby, but more pertinent to the theme of this blog, WE'RE MOVING!!!!! YAY!!!
The place we found is half of a historic home pretty close to downtown. It has hardwood floors, a fireplace, a small backyard, a basement with a workbench (Z already has a honey-do list), a real dining room, and more bedrooms than we know what to do with. All for only $60 more a month than what we would have to pay next year for our townhouse. Win.
My job this summer is to pack the boxes. We can start moving stuff over in July and will be officially moved by August 1. We are really excited about this place and while I normally despise the thought of moving, I'm actually not dreading it this time. I think there are two reasons for this: 1, the new place feels like a home and with a baby on the way I'm sure I will get all nest-y on you soon and 2, I don't have to do any of the heavy lifting this time....mwahahaha!
