… I see you!
I must apologise.
I unintentionally went into hiding last week.
There was no reason for it.
I just ran out of things to say and so kept putting off till tomorrow.
Tomorrow never came.
(But did you miss me?)
The scan, I’m thrilled to say, went very well. It took almost an hour to do, and the kids got a little fidgety toward the end but we are pleased to report that there is a seemingly healthy , active and completely unco-operative (for the sonographer) baby in there. Thank you, God! I will have to scan in the photos to share them with you. I’ll put it on my to-do list right now.
I’m now approaching 14 weeks, my second trimester. Everyone has now been informed. Most are happy. A couple, not so much. But hey, we’re over the moon! And that’s what matters, right?
What else has been going on here this week?
I got back in touch with three old school friends last week. It was quite accidental when one friend who I did keep in touch with opened her dad’s front door to find his nurse was one of our old crowd! This in turn led to another two virtual reunions thanks to Facebook, and one actual reunion visit already planned for this week. I am so excited! I can’t wait! I also can’t believe that it’s almost twenty years since we last saw each other. I can’t believe I left school that long ago. My mind’s eye plays tricks on me, and in it I suppose I still think it was only a handful of years ago rather than the great, big, barrow-load that it is!
Well, of course last week was Holy Week and that means lots and lots of busyness! Mike and Cait went to the Maundy Thursday mass where Caitlin participated in the foot wash. On Good Friday, the two of them, along with Harry, went along on the Walk of Witness in the morning followed by lunch at home then back to church with the rest of us for mass.
Saturday was Michael’s day. Well, it was Holy Saturday actually, but the day Michael was finally to be confirmed. Unfortunately, we felt it was too late for the younger ones to be able to cope with and so we couldn’t attend with him. I wish terribly that I could turn back the time and and have made an exception that once so that we could all have shared the evening with him. I didn’t realise how sad it would make me to miss it. Regardless, we were there in spirit and the main thing is that he is now confirmed and I pray that God blessed him that day and for every day thereafter. I’m so proud of him and count myself very lucky. I think God blessed me the day we met but ssh, don’t tell him I said that! I do tell Mike it was the other way around. I think he’s starting to believe me.
Oh what else… well I’ve been very busily working away on a few creations which I hope to share with you soon and Mike and I have been busy planning something new. What can I say? It’s always busy, busy, busy around here!
So, tell me. What have you been up to while I’ve been away? I hope you behaved!
