Why am I excited? Well, we got some really big news late Friday afternoon. It was news we were kind of expecting…I thought this news was coming, and I believed it was coming, but actually hearing the words confirming it had me close to tears. It was so exciting that I didn’t really sleep much that night. I went to bed at 10:30pm but couldn’t get to sleep until close to midnight. Then I was up from around 3am until more or less 5:30am, tossing and turning. I think I had the most restful sleep between 530am and 9am when I woke up Saturday morning to start our day. We are all excited, but it seems I’m the most excited since everyone else slept like a log that night!
A few of you who know us in person know what the great news is. And while I was warned not to say anything until the process is complete, I can’t help but plant this little tease here on the blog before it all comes to fruition. It will involve lots of preparation in a very short time, and a new beginning of sorts. It also means that with school still in session, I have to be very organized and prioritize what needs to be done in order to stay on track with everything I have to do. Thankfully, since the kids will be done with school over the next few days, they will be able to provide some much-needed help in the coming weeks. A few things we had planned will have to be put on hold for the time being, but it’s going to be so worth it. I’m a big ball of nerves: excitement, anxiety and eagerness, all rolled into one. This is going to be quite the eventful summer!
