Sır (n.: secret, mystery, confidence)

In my long absence from blogging, tweeting, and instragraming I’m sure some of you thought I had just given up and was done.  Or perhaps you remembered me complaining that my iPhone was on it’s last leg and thus my tweeting and instagraming were done for.  Or maybe you just thought I had disappeared (though I hope not, because I would have liked to have gotten more “are you alive?” emails if that were the case).  The truth is I’ve been so absent because I have been keeping a secret.

As it turns out, I’m awful at keeping my own secrets.  If you’ve ever told me a secret, don’t worry: with other people’s I’m like a vault.  I used to keep secrets for a living in fact, and was damn good at it.  But my own secrets?  Nope.  Can’t do it.  And the bigger the secret, the worse I am at keeping it.  So in order to keep my secret I unplugged and left you all in the dark.  My apologies for that, but I couldn’t help myself.

The good news?  It’s time that I can tell my secret (and am therefore back to blogging!).  Here’s a picture of our puppy to explain:

Yep!  It's true.  We're expecting Baby Awesome.

Yep.  It’s true.  We’re expecting Baby Awesome.  We’re very excited and also a bit nervous.  I’m really good at taking care of puppies and other people’s kids, but like, full time?  Yeah… that’s… well, scary.  And exciting.  Right, so now that you know why I’ve been avoiding you all I’m going to make a vow here and now to try to keep this from turning into a “mommy blog”.  I love mommy blogs these days, so no offense to any mommy bloggers, but I’ll start up a new one if I need to have an outlet for all the baby stuff.  I’ll try to keep this one to our adventures in Turkish!

Don’t worry, I know I owe you updates of all sorts from the past 14 (+) weeks.  They’re coming!
