Seriously, Just a Quick Update

NewsThere hasn’t been too much to write about lately, other than the possibility of another sinus surgery (we’ll know Friday), and a lot of work stuff that will bore the heck out of 95% of you. The main reason apart from my busy-ness is that our minds are way too full being pre-occupied with some major life choices that we aren’t ready to put out on open airwaves. I’m ready, but it’s something we both need to be okay discussing – I always run the more personal topics by Beautiful, just in case it’s personal to her.

This is one of those topics. Of course, saying we have something to talk about without talking about it is highly annoying, so to appease a lot of curiosity, here are some things it’s NOT:

  • relationship trouble
  • health trouble
  • legal trouble
  • trouble of any kind
  • pregnancy
  • death
  • moving
  • work-related

It’s actually a very cool thing that we are both very excited about and very freaked out about at this stage. I’m fairly certain we will be ready to talk about it in the next few weeks, but I could be wrong. Please, no guessing, just know that you’ll be in on the whole thing once we decide to discuss it and that you can discuss it on both of our sites because we won’t be able to stop talking about it.

Your support means more than you know, which is why I’m giving you a non-update rather than ignoring the strange elephant in the room that no one can see.


  1. Super excited to learn what it may be but I know how many surprises and life changes can happen – not only in a marriage but in the world of CF. Please keep us in the loop (if it’s not too personal) and let me know if I can be of any help.

    • Thanks! For now, we have only told immediate family and our small group, so it’s about as tight-knit as it gets. I’m a blabbermouth, but Beautiful is more reserved, and I can definitely see her reservations talking about it openly at this point.

      It’s great to know we have CF couples out there for extra support when we are both ready, though. I feel much less alone, even though we are choosing to be alone for the time-being.

  2. Jesse, you danced beautifully around your subject. LOL! I’ll just fan the flames a little by reminding you how excited we are and how proud your mom & I are of both of you.
