So, as if one big change weren’t enough, Family Hughes is moving. To a little house a couple miles away. Next week. And we’ve just started packing.

I had grand plans for cleaning and purging months in advance, packing a box or two a day, and keeping the last-minute tasks to a minimum, but my pregnancy hasn’t lent itself to planning ahead. I’m learning to listen to my body more than ever, and my body has kept me at a slow but steady snail’s pace.

I guess I should just be proud that I’m getting anything done at all, since there were some days early in the year where all I could do was sit in front of the TV, eat Saltines and watch Felicity re-runs.

    congrats on the pregnancy AND the move! it’s such an exciting time! we’re still thinking of moving to LA next year – it will be so cute to see the babies playing together! congrats, again! i’m so happy for you guys

    p.s. did you know that babies hickup in the belly? cute! around the 6th or 7th month you’ll feel weird little taps in there – they took ME by surprise!

    Sigh…love the Felicity re-runs. What’s your favorite season? I pretty much liked everything except the final season–I wanted Felicity and Noah to get together after their night on the roof, and the pregnancy stuff with Ben was just too much for me. I did enjoy the campiness of the last few episodes, when she went “back in time.” xoxo

  5. Kate says:

    Wow, do I ever sound like a dork (it’s okay, though).

    nothing wrong with a felicity marathon! :)

    good luck with the move, girl.
