Well...after weeks of having to keep this a secret, I am finally able to share some really fun news with y'all!
I am going to be a grandmother!
Oh my gosh, just saying those words makes me feel really old! haha (I feel like I should have gray hair and wrinkly skin and be sitting in a rocking chair and putting my teeth in a glass at night!)
Ashley and John are expecting a baby in late February and we are so excited for them!
They told us back in June and we have had to keep it a secret all this time. I thought Steve might bust because he's been so excited! I think he's called Ashley every other day asking when he can get the "green light" to tell people.
Ashley has felt so great and hasn't been sick at all. They have decided not to find out what it is, but to let it be a surprise. Whatever it is, I can't wait to hold that sweet little thing in my arms! I have heard that being a grandmother is all the joy and fun without all the hard times and hassle, so that sounds good to me. :)
I have no idea what I'm going to be called, so maybe you can help me think of some cute names.
Meanwhile, in other news, we got Lindy moved into her new apartment at ECU, Laura left today to go back to Appalachian, and I have two cars loaded to the hilt with my school stuff. I am moving into my new classroom tomorrow. Thank goodness I have a son and his friends to help me. We moved everything into the cars tonight at 9:30 and almost died from the humidity and heat! I definitely couldn't do this by myself.
Tomorrow is also a big day at our house because it is our 25th anniversary! We already celebrated really when we went to Miami so tomorrow we won't do anything big. I think we may go out to dinner to celebrate this weekend.
Anyway...that is the latest news at the Maddox house! Now I am off to bed since I have to get up early tomorrow.
