Finally Some Resolution

There are . . . 4 big things happening in our lives right now, as I alluded to earlier.  I can't go into detail on some of them, but at least a couple are getting answers.  A lot of my readers already know what I'm talking about, so you will please forgive lack of details.  You never know who is reading on the internet. 

Thing 1:: Pertaining to Ben
We finally got an answer.  We have been waiting over a month for something to pan out.  Today we learned that it would not happen.  At least not in the near future.  At this point, we are just happy to have a definite answer.  They say that in a few/many months things will change and things will move forward again.  But for now it's a no.

Thing 2:: Pertaining to Rachel in the same manner
We have a plan and although it's not exactly what I had in mind, I'm excited about it.  I should be able to talk more by the weekend.

Thing 3:: More Space
No reason to keep this a secret really, even in light of the above things.  We are passively looking for a new house.  We have outgrown our little townhouse and are dreaming of a real house, with a real yard.  We chatted with a loan officer and I have spent a lot of time looking on Zillow with a lot of cute, promising houses.  Probably after Thing 2 is resolved I will starting visiting houses with a real estate agent.

Thing 4:: Other Reason for More Space
Let's end on on a happy note.
12 week ultrasound

Yes, we are having another baby!  I am 12 weeks along, next week marks the beginning of the second trimester.  No, we won't know the gender until mid-April.  Yes, I would like a girl.  But brothers could be fun too.  So far the pregnancy has been easier than the first one.  No one at work knows yet (unless they are reading this now).  I haven't been too sick, at least compared to last time.  Everything baby-wise is looking healthy and normal.  I'm due in the first half of September.

Congratulations on the baby! I'm glad everything is going well! Good luck with the house hunt and the other "things" that are up in the air!
