Well hello, old friend! I must admit it's been awhile. I really put on a spit-shine to the old blog-a-roo before making my grand comeback. What do you think?
So, I have a couple of explanations and announcements before we go much further...
First, my last post was the week before Christmas. For the sake of memory keeping, I will be back-posting about our Christmas festivities and you will see just how busy we are during that time. If it weren't for the miraculous birth of Christ, I could almost hate Christmas. There is just way too much pressure to see everyone, attend every gathering, and wear a smile at all times. In today's world of large, extended families, that is a huge request. But Christmas IS about the miraculous birth of Christ, and Jesus would eventually suffer much more than 100+ travel miles, so I tough it out.
Three (3) short days after Christmas, the hubs and I realized there was something very important missing from our lives...my monthly visitor! Um, yes, we received a very un-asked-for gift...I'm pregnant with #3. It took well into the New Year for that shock to wear off, let me tell you. Then as soon as we were adjusting to the idea of an expanding family the nausea, fatigue, and emotional roller coaster arrived. Let me tell you one thing. I don't know if it is the fact that it's the 3rd pregnancy, if it's due to having two lively and healthy young 'uns here at home who still want my attention, or if it's a combination of all that plus shock, but this time around the 1st trimester was a doozy!!!
So there you have it. After all those goings-on in December and January, here we are in February. I'm going to get back to a fairly regular schedule of blogging about 3 or 4 times a week. I will have plenty to tell you about, starting tomorrow with a recap of my pregnant-trip to New Orleans, LA for the NCAA Football National Championship Game! WOO HOO! What a great weekend!
