My World is Changing . . .

Thanks for your votes, blogosphere. You were hilarious, and I only wish I could have switched my survey so it was not anonymous and I could see who was submitting your creative ideas. In the end, though, the data all pointed to one of my favorite options and the decision seemed so clear:

In other news, big things are happening, world. I had been wanting to announce this for a while, but I had to wait until I got departmental approval, which I now have. There is a little bun in my sister's oven. Hmm, I don't really like that phrasing; it makes Heather sound like a baby cooker, but the link is already in there, so sorry, Heath. But, yes, it is true, the first little one from my generation on the Harrison side is set to come into the world this June and we are thrilled.

Other less big, but still marvelous news, my friend gave me her exercise orb and it is probably the funnest object we own. If you dive on to it just right, you can use it for travel from the front door to our desk OR from the living room to the bathroom. I'll never have to walk again!

HAha!!! You guys are so funny!! I probably laughed a good 15 minutes at that picture alone, and I can almost perfectly imagine you tobogganing across your living room on the said orb- hahaha...
This post made my day amazing.
Thank you. :)
Love you, Sister! (and Jason too!:) )

I love to read your blog spot... And am soo... excited to have a new grand baby. YOu will be an aunt for the very first time. How does that feel? I was disapointed too when we could not say who was voting. But I think it saves us from being embarrased of our own choices. I might not have voted earlier. Love yous guys, Love, MOm :)

Oh, I got to marry into aunthood, Mama, so I am almost a pro now. I still am working on always having candy on my person, but I am sure I will have improved in it by the time little soybean is born. Heather--I think I am bringing the orb for Thanksgiving fun. Be. excited.

I just realized that I didn't even sit on the orb once during Thanksgiving! :(
I am THOUGHRALLY disappointed about that. I vote we meet up next week so I can try again.
