In the next chapter of my oh-so-busy year (wedding, baby, etc) I am moving to Vermont this weekend. I am really, hysterically excited about the move, but that doesn't mean that I don't just find myself just wanting to sit down a lot of the time. It'll be good once it's all over. What this does mean though, is that I will be sans computer for an entire week starting tomorrow. Boo.
And here's the sappy stuff.
With the impending lack of computer next week, I started thinking about what I wanted to say as a sort of "see you in a week". And then I realized that I really just wanted to say thank you
to all of you. I'm a first timer who often feels completely overwhelmed and unprepared and terrified and alone. It's tough being the first of my friends having a baby and being unsure of where to go and who to ask for help.
But then there's my due date club! You are all the voices of experience and compatriotism that I need so desperately right now. Even if I don't write as often as I should, I always voraciously read every word that the rest of you have written. I talk about you all like you're my oldest and dearest friends. My husband laughingly (and correctly) refers to this club as "the village that's missing from modern life".
So I just wanted to say thank you for being my friends, and my sisters, and my mothers, and my grandmothers. Thank you for lovingly offering yourselves to me and to each other. Thank you for all being wonderful women and amazing mothers.
I really look forward to spending this last trimester with you.
