I’m 31 today. I’m 6 months pregnant, I just agreed to buy a condo, and
I’m in the Bahamas*. I feel like I’m getting adulty real fast.
Jason feels similarly. We planned the pregnancy, but the trip and the
home buying were very recent decisions. Everything fell into place. We
thought about taking a quick trip, and found cheap flights. We have
friends who recently bought a place and had a kick-ass realtor who
they recommended, who helped us find exactly what we were looking for
in less than a week. We’ll get the home-buying tax credit, and will
have our own home before the Soybean arrives. It feels overwhelming,
but all of our decisions have a great deal of logic behind them.
Now my brain just has to catch up.
*I was only mildly horrified to learn that people refer to our trip as
a "babymoon". Really, it’s our belated honeymoon. We never took one
when we got married, mostly because I had a no vacation days during my
first year at the Millicent library.
