More Adventures of Captainwow

Captainwow has been on a short sabbatical. He recently received some shocking news and decided to lay low for a while.

He has had offers to travel again, possibly to Phoenix, Colorado, and England. Soon he'll be taking in the scenes in Phoenix with my mom. The Colorado and England opportunities happen to overlap so we had a decision to make. We talked it over and decided the Colorado option might be a little easier to revisit at a later date but England is less likely to come up again for a long long time. My mom enjoys his company, and she'll be crossing the ocean soon, so Captainwow is getting geared up for that.

Meanwhile, back to the news.... Our entire household is in an adjustment period right now. We knew this day would probably come, and we were somewhat prepared for it but not in any practical way since it seemed for whatever reason that it would be a long way off.

Late May, Early June I began having little inklings that something might be on the horizon. We were getting ready for a garage sale, I was incredibly fatigued, though highly motivated - so I wondered if maybe we were "clearing out" to make room for something new. Among other symptoms, it began to appear likely that our very first month off The Patch had brought about immediate results.

Sure enough, I picked up a home test - and Captainwow interpreted the results as positive.
We captured the moment on camera:

All of this to say that Amazing Man and I are expecting a little one somewhere toward the end of February. We're pretty geeked about it.

If you pay any attention to my imood indicator over there on the sidebar you may have noticed I've been feeling "surreal" for about 3 months.
Well, that would be why.

Now that reality has set in more solidly (partly because I can't sleep on my stomach anymore) I'm feeling a little more expectant.

The cats have no idea what they're in for.... Well, we probably don't either.


  • Congratulations!

    You will be an incredible mom.

    Take Care

  • I'm glad the Captain was there to interpret - sometimes those things can get so confusing! I'm sure all those years of maintaining space travel equipment and interpreting read outs came in handy!

    And you got it--just like the cats, you have no idea what you are in for! But it will be so much fun! What great news!

  • Oh! Oh! God bless you and your new life..........Oh I am just tickled to the top of my pointy little head! I'm all sappy and gushy, I love it when babies are coming. Your cats may likely adjust easier than you. :) Many blessings to all of you!!
