Holy cow. I knew it had been a while since I posted here,
Stuff like graduation:
I made a post here there years ago (the fact that I wrote that three years to the day is a complete coincidence that’s kind of blowing my mind at the moment). I spoke ambiguously about a project I wanted to work on, and the obstacles I needed to climb over before I could do so. That “project” is wearing the polka-dotted romper in the above picture. She’s a cute little carrot, no?
Mr. Unreserved and I decided three years ago that we did want to add to our family. I busted my hump and finally finished the World’s Longest MS Degree and graduated in the spring of 2011. In the middle of all that, we had three early miscarriages. (two of them mentioned in passing here) One in October 2010, another in December, and the third heartbreak in April 2011, mere weeks before my thesis defense. We cried. We prayed. The world continued to spin on its axis. The home improvement continued, the knitting continued, the girls continued to grow and change.
And in February of this year, we got pregnant again. And stayed that way for a change.
In June, we learned that our third child was a girl.
In July, we began demolition on the room that will eventually be her bedroom (it’s not quite finished).
I just hope my next project doesn’t take three years.
