Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: ANNOUNCEMENT - Where Has Donna Been?

ANNOUNCEMENT - Where Has Donna Been?

Where have I been? I know, I know, I haven't updated my blog in 3 weeks.  Yes, it's hard for me to believe that also since many times I can post two and three blogs in one day.

It seems like only yesterday that I was writing a similar blog, but it was actually about this same time three years ago...

Quit beating around the bush, Donna, why haven't you been around much??

At first, I was able to use the proxy error messages as a good reason to not post so much. Man, those errors were a killer.  Once they were fixed, I've was getting emails and calls from people asking if everything's ok.

Yes, everything is OK!

Ok ok, so the big announcement is...

BabyHarris2 is on the way! Alyssa will be a BIG SISTER!  She's very excited though she keeps forgetting that brother means boy and sister means girl because when you ask if she wants a brother or sister, she always says brother. And when you ask if she wants a boy or a girl, she always says girl. 

She did say to me, "Pink is for girls and blue is for boys. I want a pink room, and the other room can be blue because the baby's a boy." I asked her what we do with her purple room.  Her response, "You paint it, Mommy!"

My due date was hard to pin-point for other reasons I don't want/need to get into, but the consensus is that I'm 12w4d and due December 3, 2010 (though today's appt showed Dec 1) which will put this baby around Thanksgiving just like Alyssa, three years later.

If you like fun guessing games, I set up this game like I did with Alyssa. It was fun seeing all the guesses and who got the closest last time. Even if you feel we don't really know each other, who cares, make a guess anyway, it's for fun!

I'm starting to get some energy back, so I should be around more often again.

Thanks for all the "where are you" messages. They mean a lot!

I was just going through my blog roll this morning and noticed that you hadn't posted in some time. I figured it was because you were busy.....and you were!

Congratulations Donna!

Donna I have not been blogging much lately either because business has been crazy busy.  But your reason for not blogging is a lot more fun than mine ......... LOL

Congratulation on the up coming addition to your family.

CONGRATULATIONS DONNA!  This is wonderfully exciting news and I am thrilled for you, Mike and Alyssa.  Am I allowed to guess twins? <ducking> :)

Maureen, THanks!

Amanda, I'm glad your internet didn't go down!!

Barb, I am!!

Craig, Yes, busy sleeping!!

Ken, So I've heard...

Karen, Actually, I've never had morning sickness with either pregnancy, so mornings are good. It's around 2pm that kills me and I just need to lie (lay?) down.

Kristin, Congrats to you too! That's why you finally changed your name!!

Loreena, You can always catch up and let Boomer be a big brother!

Gary, Thanks!

George, Thanks!

Steve, Sorry, but I've had several ultrasounds due to some complications, and there's just one little alien in there...

Why isn't anyone guessing on my game??

I didn't realize that we were supposed to click on that box!  OK, I put in my guess... now where do we vote on names?

Posted by Steve Shatsky about 10 years ago

Donna-Congrats on the good news, I wish you and your growing family all the best.

Posted by Joseph D. Federico, Eastern Massachusetts Real Estate (Donahue Real Estate Co.) about 10 years ago

Great news!  Congratulations (and I hope you are feeling okay)!

Posted by Holly Weatherwax, A Great Real Estate Experience ( Associate Broker, Momentum Realty) about 10 years ago

So does the delivery room have wi-fi so you can post while you're in labor?  I thought that was pretty cool!

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) about 10 years ago

Donna - That is truly awesome.  CONGRATULATIONS!  I will enter a guess, too.  :)

Posted by Jason Crouch, Broker - Austin Texas Real Estate (512-796-7653) (Austin Texas Homes, LLC) about 10 years ago

Looks like the general consensus so far is that your new baby will be 19 inches long.  :)  By the way, great new profile picture!

Posted by Jason Crouch, Broker - Austin Texas Real Estate (512-796-7653) (Austin Texas Homes, LLC) about 10 years ago

Why is everyone jinxing me with a BOY at this point?? Alyssa has too much clothes to share!! LOL

Joseph, THanks so much!

Holly, I'm great, thanks!

Pat, Of course!! I wouldn't go to a hospital without wi-fi!  Except this one, supposedly, kicks you out after just one day...

Jason, Alyssa was 19 1/4 inches, so this one will probably be around there too. And thanks about the picture, I'm still unsure about it.

Posted by Donna Harris, Realtor,Mediator,Ombudsman,Property Tax Arbitrator (Donna Homes, powered by JPAR - about 10 years ago

Congratulations.  I remember when Alyssa was due.  One of the favorite stories I have told people over the years is you blogging as you were going into the Delivery Room.  Look forward to sharing this happy time with you.

Posted by Lesley Wagstaff, For Real Estate and Mortgages (Re/Max Results Realty in Vancouver, BC) about 10 years ago

Ccongratulations Donna!  My first son was born on November 24th, 10 days late and one day after Thanksgiving!  It wasn't fun being in the hospital on Thanksgiving!  Best of luck!
