i always seem to post at the end of a thread... hmmm. what could that mean?
i have been reading a few threads here, but it has been so very busy this week with late school nights and two play performances. just too busy to chime in. i can hardly believe i am 16 weeks today. i'm feeling the little wiggler more often and have been dreaming of bigger kicks, too. i am happy to say that my school will hold my position while i take time off with our baby. it looks like i will leave in early may and be off through december. i will probably visit my class weekly and maybe teach them a little art class or something with the baby coming along. i hope to return part-time from january through june of next year, teaching a few hours a day.
today is my 18th anniversary with dh and we are having a gathering this evening to celebrate our anniversary and the solstice. my sil bought fresh crab yesterday at the wharf and i'm making cheese and chocolate fondue. yummy! dd and i are finally getting to decorating the house this afternoon. it is blustery and rainy today, so it will be such a cozy little party. i am looking forward to it. :)
i am so so relieved and happy to be off for two weeks, and will spend the next week getting ready for christmas. i've done hardly anything. still need to get our tree, make and send cards, cookies, get stocking stuffers, etc. etc. it will be a full week ahead!
i wish you all a peaceful solstice!
