Hello, again

My sister wanted to know where I've been. I've actually been pretty sick. Just a really miserable combo of nausea and heartburn and fatigue. But I had a good weekend and am hoping for a better week. We had snow, now we have beautiful weather - 80 today! We only have a couple weeks of school left - and lots to do to finish that up and get ready for baby. All of which would be much simpler if I felt better more often. This has not been an easy school year and we didn't accomplish a lot of things that I had wanted to, but we have a long spring and summer to do art and read books and catch up some things painlessly.

The girls' room is slowly transforming into a princess room. I still don't know if I'm going to use the real crib or a porta crib or if I'll just put the porta crib in my room. The kids bedrooms are 10x10 - not really made for three kids in one room. My room isn't much bigger at 10x12. So we've got a lot to sort through and rearrange - which is once again difficult to do when this pregnancy will apparently not even leave me one good month to do it in.

I am, however, at 32 weeks now, and am just so glad to see an end in sight. The warmer weather and having out spring and summer maternity clothes makes it seem even closer. We're still working on that name thing too. I'm afraid to even tell people what we're considering anymore, because just about the time I think it's the keeper, it changes again...

And I am so hot! Not in the way I wish either. This girl is like my own personal furnace. I've never been this hot during a pregnancy - even with Rose, who was born in July! I feel like I'm constantly having hot flashes.

The kids are finally over all the colds, I think, and I'm slightly ashamed to admit that we completely skipped out on church yesterday because the flu is going around there like crazy, and that is just not a good idea right now.

Well, enjoy all the pics to catch you up on life around here, and I'll try not to be a stranger.

Sending you some love and hugs....and hoping you feel better soon! Try not to worry about anything but having a safe and happy delivery. :-)

Hope you have a better day today! I can't wait to see pictures of that new little sweetie.

I probably can't give any advice to a seasoned mom like you, but from my own experience in stressing to get ready for baby before she came - the realization was that the world didn't when she arrived. All that panic to have everything ready - but after she was here I could still arrange and re-arrange and get things. =)

You should get your rest while you can!

Yay! I'm so glad you're still alive. Of course, if I would just pick up the phone I would have known that sooner, but reading about it is so much more fun. I'm sorry you've been so sick. Hope you have a GREAT week with little sickness at all
