Changes...They Are A Comin'

I don't think there's anyone reading this blog that doesn't know I'm pregnant with our 3rd child.  (If there was, Surprise!)

You may or may not know that we are moving home from Singapore in 9 weeks.  NINE WEEKS!

I have so many thoughts about all of this, and I don't even know where to begin.  I'm a little overwhelmed with it all, and I have been S.I.C.K. for the last 3 weeks with this pregnancy.  I called my doctor on Tuesday and begged for some medication, which she gladly prescribed.  I'm feeling better, but still not wonderful.  I don't think I've ever felt wonderful when I'm pregnant, so I guess this is pretty good!

I've already lost about 10 pounds (I'm 8 weeks, 3 days pregnant), and I'm hoping not to match my 25 pound weight loss with Levi.  The medicine is helping, and I haven't been sick in 2 days now.  It's definitely progress.

Now, about us moving back to Texas.  I'm excited.  I'm scared.  I'm tired.  I'm happy.  I'm sad.  I can't wait to live close to my sister again, but I'm not ready to leave our friends in Singapore behind.  It's all a little much right now.  And we have SO much to do before we can have the movers come and cram our stuff into a 20-foot container (read: we have a lot of stuff to sell/donate before that can happen).

That being said, I do daydream about shopping in an American grocery store (so many choices!) and going to Sonic for Happy Hour.  And having a kitchen big enough to really prepare meals in, and a refrigerator that holds a gallon of anything.  And a sink that's more than 4 inches deep, hot water that just magically appears in the tap, and a dishwasher.  Ahhhh...a dishwasher.

We're looking at houses online, and we've found a few we really like.  It's nice knowing that we don't have to sell a house before we can buy one, but it's a little stressful knowing that we cannot have our shipment from Singapore unloaded until we own a house because where in the world would we put it all?

We have a lot of major changes coming for our family in 2012.  I'm clinging to this verse the whole way through:

In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength. ~Isaiah 30:15 ESV
