The signs are all there, you just need to know what you're looking for

I've said it before - I believe in signs. I think it goes back to my Catholic upbringing. Something about all those saints finding the image of Jesus or Mary in a tree stump or loaf of bread and seeing it as the sign to give their lives to God. I saw a dragonfly. I see it as a sign of good things to come. I may be deluding myself but I think we all need something to believe in and since I gave up religion for the time being, it's going to have to be insects.

Or this! This weekend is National Alpaca Farm Day. It's a little strange that a "day" is actually being held over two days, but when you're living the farm life I guess you can be a little loosey goosey about those things. I don't need someone to hit me over the head with a tree stump with the image of Jesus riding an alpaca on it. If this weekend is National Alpaca Farm Day and I just so happen to have been thinking of starting my own alpaca farm then someone's trying to tell me something.

But I think it's this sign I should be paying attention to:


You don't have to beat me over the head with a stump. Right now you could knock me over with a feather. I guess fate had a plan for us all along.

Scary and fun! Congratulations! I hope you have an easy pregnancy. After feel bleck throughout my first preg. , my second I was filled with energy and only gained 23 lbs. My 2nd labor was spectacularly easy as well. It's the teenage years that are going to be my demise.

Best Wishes!!!!

Mrs. Chicken said...

Outstanding! Maybe that had something to do with your moody mood?

Wonderful news. It seems to be going around the blogosphere. Is it like getting pregnant by sitting on a public toilet?

Julie Pippert said...

WOW! Congrats! You and Catherine are going to have to get those progress tickers!

So I guess this means no crazy drunk night in Boston. ;)

H&H to you!

Manic Mommy said...

Congratulations, Mrs. Chicky!!! Truly wonderful news.

I love signs - and while mine didn't involve peeing on a stick, it did let me know which direction to take.

I am sincerely happy for you.

margalit said...

Wheeeee! Mazel Tov. I'm SO happy for you. Is this going to be little Duckie, Goosie, or what?

Wendy said...

It seems some of us are able to make a decision while others are hoping that the urge will just go away already.

Actually, you have given me hope (and not in the baby department) with your talk of signs. I am off to find my signs and hope that they all point to good luck.

Congrats! Now the wild ride really begins.

Congratulations!

heather said...

Congratulations! I just started reading you recently you really pulled me in with the posts about possibly having another baby, I guess the decision is made. I have two and would maybe like to have a third but am not great with decisions myself. Wishing you an easy and happy pregnancy.
