    Here we go again...

    I probably shouldn't be doing this but I feel like I need to start telling people. Yes, it is still quite early. Yes, a lot of things could still go wrong. And yes, I am nervous and anxious but also optimistic. I always thought that people shouldn't say anything until they were farther along but given my past experience you can be a lot further along and things can still go wrong. I consider you all my friends and can use as many good thoughts and prayers as you are willing to share for today I find myself 7 weeks pregnant. We saw the heartbeat yesterday and so far things seem to be going well.

    I am very happy for you and truly hope for the best.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Actually 4th time but who's counting. I'll take the good thoughts just the same.

    Really hoping this goes well for you--I think even the absolute most jaded person on Earth would say you've earned some good news & the right to share it!

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Best wishes!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Thanks, everyone. I truly appreciate your thoughts, prayers, and energy. It might sound a bit weird but this time *feels* a bit different and I've been more more excited and optimistic.
