I have 2 HUGE things that need to be shared.
HUGE news #1:
We're moving in 15 days!
Wanna know where?
Columbus, Ohio
Wanna know why?
Because the husband is awesome.
He has been accepted to THE Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.
Am I nervous?
You bet.
Am I slightly scared?
Am I excited?
Our apartment is a mess as we have started packing.
TJ is trying to throw everything away.
I am secretly pulling things out of the trash.
We are taking almost nothing with us.
If you want something that we have, come get it.
It's yours.

Okay, HUGE news #2
I need to buy this:
because my eggo is preggo!
I'm not kidding.
Baby Buckeye will be here at the end of January.
Am I nervous?
You bet.
Am I slightly scared?
Am I excited?
Morning sickness?
Huge lie.
It should totally be called "All Day Long Sickness"
But it comes in handy when I don't want to help pack.
Packing is lame.

So there you have it.
Two HUGE things.
Our life is completely upside down right now.
We don't really know what we are doing.
But we are totally excited!

Congratulations! You two are going to be awesome parents.... the world won't know what hit 'em! Congratulations on all the new things going on in your life, and I'm totally there with you on the "all day" sickness. When you wake up in the middle of the night to hurl a meal you couldn't even eat down the night before, morning just doesn't cover it. I hope the sickness leaves soon! It is majorly worth it! Yay for the Griers!
