Our Last Thanksgiving as a Couple?

As I sit here on the couch with my mom on my left, by dog at my foot and my dad across the room, I'm lead to wonder if this will be our last Thanksgiving as a couple. Hopefully soon, we will be a family. Technically we've always been a family, but you catch my drift I think.

We traveled to my parent's place in Portland; the drive took far longer than it should have. Seriously, how it takes 5 ½ hours to drive 175 miles is beyond my comprehension. But between Renton and Fort Lewis, I think we averaged 30 miles an hour.

Which leads me to conclude that there would have been at LEAST two feedings and two diaper changes on the trip; and very few places I would deem appropriate to stop, interesting.

Perhaps, people will have to start making the trek to see us a little more often. Of course that would be selfish though, as most of them would have to sleep at a motel, because I don't really have a guest room. And only one bathroom.

Anyway, that's the extent of my pondering! I wonder…. J

I sometimes think about what situations would be like with a baby too. I watch my sister-in-law and it all seems so complicated. Hopefully, I'll be ready when necessary.

You will be :D The complicated becomes the norm and you just do it. It's like re-learning how to live and go through a day. Of course this is all a theory right now...I'll let you know when I get there, or if you get there first you can tell me if I'm right!
