13 weeks

Yeah! I have made it to the point where I can finally feel a little bit more like myself. I don't feel like throwing up when I think about food just certain kinds of foods, but hey I will take it! I don't fall asleep at 2pm anymore, yes I still need to sit and take a break about then. Let's face it GH is on then so it's as good a time as any to take a break. I still cry about anything remotely sad or happy, but at least I can face the reality of what life is and wipe away my tears and move on with the day. I don't get back in bed after Max goes to school, not to say I am out the door as well, but I don't get back in bed and that is a good thing. I actually finished the laundry this week before I had to start it again, which is an accomplishment considering that I didn't get to start it on Monday as I usually do! I just love having a little energy back I even gardened on Tuesday and Wednesday, it gave me a back ache, but it was nice to be outside getting stuff done. I think I have prematurely gained my pregnant pouch because I got fat eating and sleeping the past while when I wasn't my active self so feel free to comment on my growing belly I won't be offended, I've never cared about my weight much. So I am happy... hopefully my next appt will be good and if my lucky stars are in order I will maybe get another ultrasound and find out the sex, but probably won't until 20 weeks oh well. What excuse can I give my doctor to let me get another one earlier?

Book Review The Little Prince

The Little Prince by Antoine de-Saint Exupery. This was a very interesting little book, it is a philosophical book with out the self-righteous fervor I sense in other philosophical books. I thought it was a little simplistic at first; but in thinking more about the meaning and symbolism also discussing it at book club, I appreciate it more. I would recommend it. It only took an evening to read so even if you don't like it you won't have wasted too much time. Stay tuned for more reviews, I am going to try and read The Host, I've heard it's great!

This is what happens when you let an 8 year old and a 5 year old get peanut butter out for themselves to eat with cherrios while you pass out from pregnant exhaustion! They leave it out for little Miss Chievous to find.

Isn't she cute though?!!

Thank You

Thank you everyone for your comments and love. My nephew Preston is paralyzed from the waist down. He is hopeful that it is not permanent and has started therapy. It will be a long and painful road for him. I pray for him daily, literally every prayer I pray has him in it! He says he has feeling where the doctors told him he would not, and we think this must be a good sign. Hopefully I'll be getting more updates today.

Life. The air we breathe, the muscles we use, the words we speak, the love we give. Do we realize how precious our lives really are? I know that I don't. I take for granted my health everyday. I take for granted my safety everyday, my kids' safety.
My nephew got shot last night. He is 22 years old. He has his whole life ahead of him. Someone felt like money and possesions were worth more than his life.
I pray that he will be whole and well again. All I can do is wait and hope and pray.
