Neighborhood Gossip

I had been wondering lately what our neighbors were thinking about me being gone for almost a month now or if they had even noticed. Well apparently at least one of them has. Tyler was at home doing a little bit of yard work to stay on top of things and our neighbor to the East was outside talking to him. She asked how we were doing and Tyler proceeded to tell her that I was pregnant (we hadn't had the chance to tell any of our neighbors yet) and that I was in the hospital and had been here for awhile. Her response was "ohhhh, I've seen you come and go but hadn't see her in a long time." Tyler also went on to say that my sister had moved in with us for the summer and our neighbor said, "ahhh, that explains things!"
So in other words, our neighbor must have thought that Tyler and I split up (since I was gone) and that he had a new girlfriend (Hope)! I guess for someone who had no idea what was going on, I can see where she might get an idea like that. I bet that we're the talk of the neighborhood, people trying to figure out where I disappeared to! They'll sure be surprised when I finally show up with a baby! :)


  1. Thank you for the congrats & for the prayers! I didn't know about the zinc thing either. But everyone raves Dr. Barsoom can keep anyone pregnant, so I trust his every word.

    Hope everything is still going well on your journey!!

  2. This made me laugh! I, too, have been wondering if my neighbors have noticed I have been gone the past 4 weeks! We just moved here about 3 weeks before I was put in the hospital, so I don't know them that well, but I wondered if they noticed. Then I thought to myself, the next time they see me, we will have a baby.
