OK, fine.

Well, I am really terrible at keeping secrets- about myself, anyway. I've already been telling lots of my friends, so I figure I might as well share the news with you, too. Just like this blogger, this blogger, and this blogger, I will be having a baby before the year is out! I'm only six weeks, so it's really early, but by telling you I am now at liberty to complain about how tired I am this time (nine years after D) and wondering how I will handle my classes in the fall (when I am due mid-semester) and reporting my valiant efforts at chairing a search committee and being really moody. We're all very excited- including D, who will finally get to be a big sister at age nine. Wow- that's a BIG age difference. So maybe my new (if temporary) blog name should be "what a tenured, pregnant professor shouldn't be doing..."

Wow, congratulations! And welcome aboard! (Well, really, I'm welcoming myself to a club you already belong to, not the other way around. Except that this time we're all pregnant bloggers.)

Thanks for the well wishes, everyone! I could really use it right now as I try to make it through the last week before spring break and we interview our last candidate (who called my cell AGAIN today, btw). Tomorrow will be ugly with the time change (and my 8:00AM class!) I took a one-hour nap this afternoon...
