1. I don't think I've mentioned that once I get to Florida, I won't need to work anymore. Wahoo! This is both incredibly exciting to me, and just a tad unnerving. Not needing to work will give me the freedom to work on writing a book, spending more time on photography, and to do the oh-so glamorous work of growing a baby and maintaining a home. As excited as I am, I know it's going to be a tremendous adjustment. After graduating from college, I took a two-week break and then promptly began working full-time. I haven't stopped since then (11 years!), so it's going to be crazy not to be earning a paycheck of my own.
2. I have been consistently sick with this pregnancy -- just like clockwork. Though I doubt this little one's personality is exerting much influence over my hormones, I can't help but notice the fact that for the last several weeks, I've been getting sick on a very regular schedule. Could it be a sign of things to come?? ;o)
3. Seattle Children's Hospital is having a memorial service this coming Sunday to remember and honor all the children who have died in the past year. My family and I will be attending for Ewan, and visiting the cemetery where he is buried (which is very close by) afterward. I've visited the hospital just once or twice since his death to pick up some of his things, and to visit a family we met there -- so it will be strange to be back there again.
4. I can't wait to get to Florida. It's not because I'm not going to miss it here in Seattle -- I really, really am. I'm going to miss the place and the people I love here. But being so far from my husband for this long is hard on us both. Skype is wonderful, but only gets us so far. To say I'm looking forward to the day when we're together again is a tremendous understatement!
