it's this

There are so many things I want to say here and cannot. Something big and fantastic and scary is on the horizon for my little family, a whole new way of being and choosing and yet i can't tear into it quite yet. But if you were here sitting by me i'd ply you with sweet coffee or red wine and i'd give you soft blankets to keep you warm and we'd talk long into the night. and i'd whisper and whoop and tell you everything, the words and laughter and fear spilling out until you begged me to shut up so you could go to sleep.

and no dudes, i'm not pregnant. please.

I HATE when people do this! But I love that I'm the first to read this. Waiting with bated breath to find out what is on the horizon!!!

meno said...

Looking forward to hearing all about it Jen. Though I think I have an inkling...

kristen said...

it wouldn't have even crossed my mind that you'd be pregnant, what does that say about me?

i'm dreaming of adventures for my little family as well, although compared to what i imagine for yours, ours is quite domestic.

the sweet coffee, red wine and soft blankets? that would be delicious.

Annie said...

So, what must we ply you with to get you to come back soon and tell all?

Good luck with whatever it is - looking forward to reading.

Sober Briquette said...

I shaved my head and wrapped it in green band-aids, it hurts so much to wait for your revelation.

Gwen said...

Are you pregnant? 'Cause with all that blog-tease, maybe you should be.

:)

Can't wait to hear your news, babe.

cce said...

I'll be drooling on the pillow while you ramble on, wake me when you're ready to dish the dirt. I've got no patience.

Her Grace said...

Can't wait to hear about your new adventure!

Chicky Chicky Baby said...

C'mon now don't do that to us. And by us I mean me.

Janet said...

Enticing post, you blog tease, you.

Pass the red wine.

kgirl said...

oooh, you temptress. can't wait to hear - hope it's what i think (not pregnancy!).

mamatulip said...

Oh, now I am all sorts of DYING TO KNOW.

Arwen said...

I hope staying up all night chatting is on a big overstuffed sofa too. I can wait but I am good at getting people to reveal things they wouldn't normally reveal.
I have mad interrogation skills, especially after wine and coffee.

slouching mom said...

I am NO GOOD at waiting.

NO GOOD, I say.

Karen said...

furiousBall said...

and that's when you strike isn't it, you get me all comfy and sleepy and then i wake up with the word "LOOSER" on my forehead, and yes I meant to misspell it, there's nothing more insulting than getting drawn on while asleep and having a misspelling on your face, just ask Tori Spelling

Mayberry said...

I have a few guesses/wishes/hopes for you ... can't wait to find out if I am right!

Candy said...

I'll just have to assume congratulations are in order, and offer them. Can't wait to hear the news.

heather said...

I am like a kid at Christmas in that as soon as someone tells me I can't know something, I want to know NOW. How about if we beg? Tomorrow will you tell us?

pgoodness said...

COME ON! That is so entirely unfair, and yet, I am so excited for you! tell me tell me tell me!!!

Amy Y said...

Arrgh! I'm lousy at waiting too! Can you email???

Redneck Mommy said...

I feel like the cat who swallowed the canary....

I can't stop grinning for you. My kids are going to think I'm sick or something.

Wink, wink.

Oh, The Joys said...

Oooh, i hope the dream you've been dreaming for a while has seen a little development!!

QT said...

WOW!!!

Jocelyn said...

It involves going to a new place--the travel bug being fed in a semi-permanent way?

Yes?

Maybe?

Omaha Mama said...

Sweet coffee and blankies sound nice. I hope all is well with your family and that the news is totally exciting!

wheelsonthebus said...

Well, we look forward to hearing soon.

alejna said...

This sure makes me wish I could drop by and plop down on your couch. I can't wait (but I guess I'll have to) to find out the details.

Magpie said...

I want to get on the next plane out of here!

I'll wait with bated breath 'til you're ready though.

Anjali said...

Sounds wonderful. Can't wait to hear more when you're ready to share.

carrie said...

Whatever it is, I am happy if you are, friend.
