fun, life altering fact BESIDES that i just left a secure, full-time job at a studio in order to try and make my living with my art...
ryan and i started talking months ago about me leaving my job. it was not a will-nilly thing. we were planning for it, scared for it, considering when the best time to be would be ("should i stay another year?" etc)... then i typed up my notice, printed it up and said "i'm handing this in on xxxx date". We were ready to take a chance.
and then i found out i was pregnant.
not sure if this was a sign to STAY gainfully employed or to work for myself... i STILL turned in my notice.... now ready to stay at home with my art, my cats... and now, my kid.
the little nerd is due in late december. (i apologize to the kid in advance for lumping his/her birthday in with the holidays)
yes, ryan and i are very excited.
yes, i am extremely terrified.
yes, the cats are very upset.
(i apologize to the people i (used) to work with for not telling you before i left. 1) i had a few people i was seeing last night that i wanted to tell in person, so i didn't want to risk a million facebook wallposts of "omg! congrats" and blow the surprise and 2)i didn't want to lump the craziness of my last day with the news)
but...uh... yeah... baby.
yep. freakin' out.
also, there's a new gronk comic today.
