As I worked on my thesis last fall, my wife and I decided to have a baby. We spent months reading, making appointments and decisions, tracking my ovulation and doing all sorts of things to (maybe) boost my fertility, saving money, and worrying. In the spring we started trying, expecting the process to take a long time.
I got pregnant on our second insemination. I'm now about half-way through the pregnancy, expecting a new family member around the end of the year. We're thrilled. It's not surprisingly taking up a lot of our time and energy.
While I finished grad school, I still have a full-time day job, which I'll be returning to a few months after this little person is born. I've decided to step away from regular writing for the time being. I'll hopefully revise my second novel, get a publisher for my first novel, and return to writing reviews and short original work in the near future. Thanks for all your support.
