Ok, not easy. But definitely easier. My hormones are no longer making me wanna choke out rude teenagers on the subway; my dad’s back from the Philippines, and despite everything that’s happened between us, there’s now a strange calm in the house; money’s still scarce, but it’s enough to make end’s meet; the pregnancy is going well and soon I’m gonna have the sonogram and find out if the baby’s a boy or a girl; Rob’s up for a job in NJ, and it’ll give us the much-needed distance and money that we need as a couple and a family; the house is coming along smoothly, and my nesting instinct is kicking in so every nook and cranny is looking spic-n-span; a few of my good friends are planning my baby shower, and even though Rob and I are paring down the invitation list, it looks like 95 people are invited; my creative juices are flowing, and I’m hoping that means my writing will be flowing soon, too.
So yeah. Sorry for being a stranger. This nice bit of calm-within-the-storm has been a long way coming, and even though I’ve been reading all of your blogs, I haven’t been commenting as much as I’d like. I hope you all know how much I appreciate you, and how much I root for you. I’ll be back around soon.
