Tidal Wave.

May 17, 2009

Sometimes in life, I feel like events happen to us like a tidal wave.  All in one big smack.  But I am starting to think, that is just how life is…feast or famine.  Let’s look at some examples.  Tidal wave number one: in one week my husband started a new job, he was activated by the military (which since has been rescinded), and I found out I was pregnant.   Tidal wave number two: in one week I turned 31, we had our six year anniversary, and we found out the sex of our child.  This week, tidal wave number three will break shore.  Not all of our tidal waves are bad, in fact they have all been good.  But there were many after shocks in between, that were VERY unpleasant.  But we have made it.  So what is on tap this week you ask?  Our adoption information has been translated and will be submitted to the ICBF early this week, my husband will turn the big 3-0, and we will close on our house–almost five years from the day we bought it.  This week proves to be very busy and eventful, but I think that this is just how it is.  I wonder if before (6 months ago) we lived in such an easy environment that we didn’t realize how calm life was.  Since December, it seems like things have been more insane now than when we were in college.  It has been one wild ride, but so far…it’s all good.

    One day, I hope you will blog in more detail about the week you found out you were pregnant. That was one crazy week, very memorable.

    I hope your next wave is all good things!

    Doesn’t it seem thats always the way? Happy Birthday to your hubby. Great news on the ICBF submission. Hopefully there wont be any follow up and you’ll be approved quickly. And then the wait will begin. Sounds like you’ll be busy during the wait!
