The Times, They Are A-Changin’: An Announcement

It’s time to let the cat out of the bag: I’m pregnant! A little more than 12 weeks, to be exact.

That’s why you’ve probably been noticing that I haven’t been posting about doing a lot of stuff around the house lately. It’s because I’m pretty much out of commission until early March, when our baby is set to arrive.

That means I can’t help with finishing the upstairs room, which is down to just needing paint, carpeting and molding. I can’t paint the kitchen, which right now has white primer walls with two test spots of green-hued paint on either side of the doorway. But I’m sure I’ll find other ways to keep busy.

I wasn’t lucky enough to skip the morning sickness (or “all-day sickness, as I’d taken to calling it). My face is breaking out like I’m 13 again, my mood swings are epic and I dearly miss my caffeinated tea and Coke Zero. But it’s all for an excellent cause.

Mr. Not-So-Frugal and I are ecstatic and thrilled to share this news with everyone this week. Now I’m going to have to find new ways to be frugal when it comes to all the expenses associated with a baby!
