Welp. I do not expect to get through a full blog post before Jack wakes up from his nap but we’ll see.
Today is my 30th birthday, Jack has been napping for two hours and I can’t think of anything else to do besides clean or do laundry which I am boycotting because it’s my 30th birthday. It’s kind of a dumb idea, since I have nothing else to do and it will just create more work for me tomorrow but I mean, it’s 1:30 in the afternoon already. I can’t just go changing plans like that right in the middle of the day.
My first plan was to take a nap (even though Spencer let me sleep an hour late this morning, I am just worn plum out every second of life right now, what with being 30 and all) but we have the Rowdy Bunch working under our house today. Under our trailer house. Which means I can hear every hammer clang and F-bomb that goes on. Let me tell ya, I do not consider myself sheltered about cussing. I have spent more than my fair share of time in dive bars. But there are dive bars and then there are the places these guys must hang out. I think it’s the places where people get stabbed. And besides the cussing, I am just intrigued by their choice of music. If you saw these guys, you would probably not peg them for the kind who like to listen to rap songs about hoes tryna get they money. Anyhoo, these charmers are keeping me from taking a nap. If my mama was here she would probably go out there and explain to them about manners but she’s not and I’m too tired (and a little scared?).
So. I thought I would write a blog post about life on the Brown front lately. We got to see our new baby BOY on Monday, which I have been having my moments about. It really was so cute to see him sucking his thumb and I just love that I’m having babies in a time when we get to see them so early thanks to technology. Now, the name situation is not coming along real smoothly. I thought I was keeping myself right in the middle of the road, not leaning one way or the other about gender (even though I did have that one dream that it was a boy which I didn’t want to acknowledge or tell anyone about) but it has become clear that I was only thinking about girl names. Suggestions welcome.
Also, we are moving to Purcell! Really, the address is Wayne but it has a Purcell phone number so it’s one of those in-between places. And not only are we moving back to my hometown, which is just a treasure to my heart in itself, but we are moving back to my HOME. We are buying the house that my grandparents owned all my life and where I lived in high school when we moved in with my grandpa. After he died, my mom kept living there and I was in and out as a nomadic and wandering youth can be. Now my aunt owns it and has been renting it since my mom moved out when she got married a few years ago and we are buying it from her. And I just think that is the neatest ever. We are set to close on our current home on May 15th and I HOPE that we will be able to move into the Purcell house by then. If not, pray for us as we will probably be sleeping in a storage unit with all our belongings.
I think I’ve covered all the major updates…Getting old, new baby and moving…Yep, that about covers it. I’ll let everyone know when we pick a name for the new guy.
I hope you all have a glorious Easter. Love ya bunches.
