Throwing stuff at the internet to see what sticks
Friday, August 08, 2003 The News
Remember a couple of weeks ago when I mentioned that there were a few things going on that I couldn’t really talk about? And then I told you that I’d fill you in when something popped?
Something popped today, in a fairly large way. The biggest thing I had going on, in fact. I’ve been making a lot of phone calls and sending a lot of e-mails, spreading the news. It’s been great. Everyone is so excited for me, and I must admit that I share their feelings.
Now that it’s all turned out okay, I’m glad I kept it relatively quiet in the interim. I don’t know if it actually would have made a difference in the end, but I have to confess that I can be incredibly superstitious at times, and I didn’t want to do anything that might tip things out of my favor. This is pretty much all I’ve been thinking about ever since the process was set in motion. I couldn’t really bring myself to think that things would actually turn out this way, and at the same time I knew I’d be devastated if they didn’t.
But now it’s safe to talk about. I’m so relieved, and excited, and nervous about what it all means. My life is going to change in so many ways, large and small. Everything is different now. Ever since I got the news, everything I’ve seen, everyone I’ve talked to, takes on a new significance for me. There are so many things I’ll be changing, so many things I won’t have to deal with any more, so many new opportunities, I still haven’t got my head completely around it all. I probably won’t for a couple more weeks. It'll even affect the blog, most likely.
No, I’m not pregnant. Neither is Trash. But our lives will be changing. For the better, in most ways. And very soon. And now that it’s all arranged, decided on, locked in, whatever you want to call it, I can tell you all about it. Every detail. All the backstory, everything leading up to today’s events. I’m going to do a full briefing, bring you into the loop, give you the complete skinny.
