My week was pretty dull, but two of my friends got BIG surprises this week!
First, SuperMom found out that her software-dude husband had received an offer to work in Germany for two months and that the firm was willing to pay for his entire family to come with him! They'll have an apartment for the entire time! How freakin' cool is that? So, SuperMom, Dad and all four kids (7yo to 17yo) are going to say Auf Weidersehen to America and Guten Tag to Deutchland! I can't wait to hear about their adventures overseas!
Then, another friend of mine who has adopted 3 children over about 10 years and who was JUST telling me how excited she was that the youngest was starting Kindergarten this fall and was planning on getting out of the house and back into the workforce as soon as school starts and..... well, you get the picture.... Now, you just KNOW what's coming, don't you? Yep - that's right -- she's pregnant! Three months pregnant! She was so sure she couldn't be that she wrote off all the obvious symptoms until she couldn't NOT suspect pregnancy any longer! How's THAT for a surprise?!?!?!
Wow! Life can be pretty surprising sometimes, can't it? Overseas adventures, unexpected children..... I guess we never really know what's waiting for us around the next corner, do we?
Makes me wonder what the next big surprise will be in our life and when it will happen!
