The Waiting Game
There are a few times in life where you’re just waiting. There’s a major event on the horizon and there’s not much you can do until that event comes.
Maybe it’s a big move, a new job, or in my case, a new family member.
Betsy and I were absolutely certain that the baby was going to come early. We’ve had our bags packed for weeks! Now, everyday is kind of in a weird fog of indecision. Every decision seems to hinge on an event that we can’t predict.
At the same time there’s a great sense of anticipation. It reminds me of that giddy feeling of being a kid before Christmas. (I’m too excited to sleep!!)
While it might seem like there’s nothing to do but wait, that’s no way to live life! It’s never a good idea to cling from one major event to the next.
So, Betsy and I just wake up everyday and try to enjoy it.
If today happens to be The Day, then we’ll welcome him/her with open arms!
No poll this week because seriously this baby better come in the next week.
Spiced Chickpeas with Lemon – Let’s get some healthy stuff going in 2015. Chickpeas are one of my favorite salad add-ins. They are filling and pair well with a ton of great flavors. (@ Healthy Delicious)
Caviar Pie – This is a new one for me, but it sure looks good. I’ve never had enough caviar for a pie, but I hear that I will have lots of money now that I have a child on the way so who knows what 2015 will bring! (@ Ruhlman)
Have a great first weekend of 2015 everybody!
