I'm bored! And lonely! Come over and eat brownies with me, and tell me your life story!
Or, I know: let's play a game! It's been a long time since we played A Year Ago Today, A Year From Now. Let's do that!
A year ago I had a 7-week old, two 2-year-olds, a 6-year-old, and an 8-year-old. I was struggling to find a good birth control option, starting a running program, and trying to reduce clutter.
A year from now I'll have a 2-year-old, two 4-year-olds, an 8-year-old, and a 10-year-old. I'll have thrown the birthday party I've been saying Rob could have when he turned 10, which I've been dreading as it goes from "so far in the future, who cares what I promise?" to "OMG, I really have to follow through on that?"
I'll probably still be battling clutter. I probably still won't be exercising regularly. We'll either have a second bathroom or be working on a second bathroom.
The biggest thing to me is, I wonder if/what we'll have decided on the "sixth baby" issue? I wonder if I might even be pregnant a year from now? Or, the way these things happen so fast, might the sixth baby already be on the scene? It really does continually amaze me that someone not even pregnant one year can have a 3-month-old one single year later.
