New Me Is We

I finally got around to entering my volunteer hours from the last ten months, and hot damn...now I realize why I was getting volunteer awards. I logged 278 HOURS, and that was me underestimating. Yeesh. No wonder I have been driving myself bonkers trying to get everything done. It has been an amazing learning experience, but I'm happy I will have a sweet little itty bitty excuse to NOT take a position next year. I actually made Will pinky promise me that he wouldn't let me join the board again because I don't trust myself. I will be happy to attend luncheons and volunteer for NORMAL volunteer shifts, but I know it's time to take a break.

Now I'm sitting here trying to think about something to write non-baby related, and it's next to impossible. Sure I have 100+ drafts saved up from my pre-pregnancy era, but my heart's just not in it. Said heart, has been completely taken over by CQB, and that's on top of the love that I already hold for Will. I can break into tears just at the thought of how much I love those too, and I'm not one bit ashamed by it. Not even ashamed by this picture that moves me to no end.



PS. I'm not pretending to sleep. I ain't no faker ;)

I'm sure I will find the motivation to talk about other stuff  along the way, but please bare with me while I try to find myself in this transition. I know I want to share the home buying advice that saved us THOUSANDS, I have tons of recipes, I hope to make lots of memories with Will and our friends during the short period we have left of Flight school, and if you can think of anything you want to know about me or us, feel free to ask questions about anything. I have never done a Q&A in almost five years, so it's possible you have questions...or plausible that I just overs hare as it is. Either way I'm open, and appreciative of all of your support!

Two Months until FRCSC is done, and Three months until CQB is here!

Way to go with your hours, lady! You are a volunteering machine, which matches you're beautiful kind heart :)!

That picture is amazing, just amazing. Nothing in the world to be ashamed of at all. And don't worry about blogging about non baby stuff. This is your life and that's what matters. Baby is the big focus now so that's perfectly natural if it's your post focus, too. Those that love you won't care, and you know I don't ;)! Keep the baby posts coming, whoop!

<3 you!

278 hours??? Wow! You've definitely been a busy, helpful, little bee :)
And it's 100% ok to talk about baby stuff--that's what's going on in your life now. If people don't want to read it, they won't, but don't let that deter you from writing/talking about the things that matter to you! :)

You are a beast volunteer!

I think we write about what we know and what we have going on, what we think about and dream about. If all of those things are the same right now, then they are. No shame in that! Write what you want. It's your blog.

I am with everyone else and don't mind the baby posts. IF I had a question, it would be: Do you use any technique when you curl your hair?

Brittany said...

Girl you are gorgeous. I love love love that picture. Seriously beautiful. You two are so sweet.

Beautiful pic. I wish I would have taken more pictures when I was pregnant. I felt like a beached whale, but I still should have.
You're doing great. Babies take over our bodies and our lives so it's only normal that that is what you want to talk about. So, go ahead. It's your blog :)
