I'm sure all three of my loyal readers have been wondering where I've been. There is a lot going on in PoetMama land. Two very major changes are simultaneously occurring. I have not had the time or inspiration for blogging. The two very major life changes are as follows:
1. I'm expecting. What you may ask am I expecting? There are many things I expect out of life - joy, love and inspiration to name a few. But I am expecting something much bigger than that. I am expecting my second child around the last week in November/first week in December.
I have not blogged about this because I am not one of those mommy bloggers who finds pleasure in blogging about gory gynecological details. I tend to be a rather private person which puts me at odds with the whole concept of blogging to begin with. But I still enjoy this blog as an outlet for creative expression. So there you have it. Oh yeah, and I have already had an amnio and found out that it's another girl. Woohoo! Can you say "hand-me-down clothes!"
2. We are moving. Yes, after ten years in the same stunning Studio City apartment we are finally moving to an adorable little duplex in Burbank. I am very excited about the new place. There are lots of fruit trees growing in the yard; lemon, tangerine and grapefruit. It has more square footage and it is a very peaceful neighborhood with many young children as neighbors. The only problem is that moving does not mix well with being five months pregnant (and being the primary care provider for a 3 1/2 year old.) I am exhausted and it is taking a will of steel to get through this. I know it will be worth it in the end. We so desperately needed a change and this place came along like a diamond in the rough. We will be completely out of our old place by August 4th. We have not yet figured out our Internet service yet so there may be a brief period when we are without Internet. How will we survive?!?! I do look forward to getting settled into the new place and getting a new comfort zone established. It will also allow me to fully explore my hormonal nesting instincts. Needless to say, I won't be blogging for awhile but I will eventually be back with new adventures - toward the end of August. Wish me good luck and good juju. Hope you are enjoying your summer, whatever it may bring you.
