On Tuesday night, [ profile] fiveseconddelay and [ profile] tommx were awesome enough to treat me to a Boys Night Out* which, somehow, had the unspoken feeling for all involved of being a "last hurrah."

Thing is, I only have a few days left of having no life before... well, before life gets to have me, following by me quite literally getting a life.

Soon, we'll have to prepare for the journey to and from the Rogue Festival in Fresno, CA, to perform The Road to Nowhere, which we'll also be taking to Orlando Fringe in May. Along with the baby's due date as June 30th, and there's talk about us moving to Delaware permanently. There's going to be so much more preparation, and there's going to be so many things for which I simply don't know how to be prepared at all. My days feel distinctly numbered.

But it's not a bad thing. Speaking purely for myself, I'm ready for my life to change. At least, as ready as I can be. I just don't know what to expect. From ANY of it. I just feel adrift, knowing that land is finally in sight and ready to set foot there, but uncertain of what I'm going to find waiting for me.

Five years ago, I'd have been scared shitless. Now, I'm just waiting to see what comes next. No matter what, I think it's going to be great. I'm certain that the best years are still ahead. I just don't know, and it's the uncertainty that I'm feeling most right now.

Soon, I'm going to do two posts. The first will be to announce I'm accepting 2011 reservations for rentals of my beach house in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. As I'm doing less Fringes than usual this year, my income will be largely reliant on rentals, so I have to get the word out.

The second will be a list of baby-related stuff we'll be needing, if any of you family folks have extra stuff left over that you're willing to pass on. Henchgirl and I are compiling a list of what we have, what we'll need, and what we can get ourselves. Economy, naturally, is key here.

Will post other stuff too, hopefully featuring the glorious return of my sense of humor. :)

*I can't believe I'd never heard of Sidebar in Silver Spring, but dear lord, it's my new favorite bar ever. Although I probably won't feel the same way when 1.) I'm paying, 2.) I'm driving, and 3.) it's crowded like it's supposed to always be. So seriously, thank you again, [ profile] tommx and [ profile] fiveseconddelay, for a great time out and letting me get spectacularly drunk on amazing gourmet cocktails I may never get a chance to drink again.

Except for the bacon whiskey maple drink. I don't care if it's ten bucks, I AM getting that again.

Hahahaha, I love it when I still find people who haven't heard yet. You and an old college friend both just found out over the past couple days.

Quoth Henchgirl: "Can she knit a crib? Because that would be AWESOME."

I could probably knit a crib-like thing, but I doubt it would behave much like traditional cribs.

Would you like teeny sweaters? Booties? Soakers? Perhaps a mobile of some sort? A shitload of washcloths? Bath mitts?

"That's okay! A hammock, whatever you can manage!"

She says, "Whatever she wants, so long as it has Batman on it! Or Green Lantern." I second this. The only thing I'd feel bad about accepting is washcloths. I wouldn't want to take something you made for us and use it on asses. It just doesn't seem like the thing one does with gifts.

Will you make it to Hollywood again?

I don't think so. Not this year, anyway. We're considering more of a straight shot from DC to Fresno, and then going North to Seattle to visit family before heading back to DC. But we still have yet to actually plan our route.

*hugs back* I know it will, but it's good to hear nonetheless. :)

What's this? I'm crying, crying tears of joy.

It's wonderful that things are going well for you, I wish you the best of luck! :D

Maybe you should have a damn baby shower so that, I dunno, YOUR FRIENDS CAN SEE YOU.

Once we're actually IN the area for an extended period of time where we know we can actually arrange that without worrying about conflicting schedules or any of the dozens of things we have to worry about at any given time, then yeah, that sounds ideal. But until then, caps-girl, we actually kinda have stuff to do.

Dude, if you're capable of anything besides "scared shitless", I'm impressed. I'm still halfway through getting a BA and I can't even begin to imagine being where you are right now. Best of luck.
