Why?

Why is it that these days I spend a lot more time lying on my bed, as though I didn't have anything better to do?

Why have my menu plans and shopping lists, kept up for a year, been shoved to the back of the cupboard?

Why don't I cook anything but frozen food and plain veggies any more?

Why did I pick up two menus from local take-aways this morning?

I know, this might be all too hard to guess . . .

So let me make it easy.

Why am I no longer planning to give the most adorable shooshoos, ideal for either a boy or a girl and purchased in South Africa, to either Mike and Christine or Peirce and Christina (sorry guys - promise to get something else).



If you're still having trouble, just ask yourself (?) . . . why have I received these gifts?

  7. I don't know that I've ever commented before, but I've followed your journey for a year and a half. I got married in July 2007, so we have some things in common. Anyway, I always felt a pang when I realized you hadn't yet conceived since I knew you had that desire -- imagine my joy to hear your happy news. My parents are in South Africa on vacation right now -- I might have to have them pick up some shooshoos!

  10. Thanks everyone! I've been having fun looking at the profiles of a whole lot of people I didn't know read my blog :).

    Hi Sara, I'm at eight weeks of pregnancy, same as Crystal at Biblical Womanhood - in fact, I think her due date is the same!

    Hello Whitney, you must get them to pick up some ShooShoos :). We got ours from the airport at Johannesburg, and there were heaps and heaps of adorable designs. The pink ones with an elephant were the best :). Thanks for thinking of us re: not being blessed with any children for a year. It was hard, but we now feel incredibly blessed to have conceived while we were on holiday in South Africa! There is something romantic about being blessed with our first child while visiting Dave's original country.
