A Pregnant Woman's Ramblings

My prayers have been answered. I officially am...sick. Very sick. My dear husband and I had a long talk last night about how we are going to get through the next six weeks or so. It pretty much boils down to this: minute by minute. Day by day. Joyous as I am about having morning sickness, thinking about feeling this way for six weeks or more is a little overwhelming. My dear (dear super dear) husband volunteered to do the grocery shopping for me this evening. I'm taking the minutes I don't feel too bad to put something in the washer, or unload the dishwasher, or play with the kids. I'm reading Little Town on the Prairie right now, and I'm so glad I don't have to do all that work while in the midst of pregnancy sickness. Yuck!

On a lighter note, our 5th anniversary is Friday. My only obligation is to find a babysitter. We're going to dinner and a movie. Classic. And totally enjoyable. Somehow, I need to manage to get out of the house to pick up my husband's gift. It's our 5th anniversary. That's a big deal. ;-) I can't tell you what it is in the off chance that he will read my blog and the surprise would be spoiled. Although, he probably already knows what it is. He's good like that.

And next week, we're starting home/preschool with Fritter. I'm ready. I think. And in a few more weeks, Familia starts up again and I need to somehow manage to make sure everyone in our class is registered in time to get their books.

And the clock is ticking down for my husband to leave again for 5 1/2 weeks for work. And this time we don't get to go see him. I've hired someone to come once a week so I can get out and keep my sanity. I'm not looking forward to him leaving. At all. Atallatallatall.

Well, if you've managed to get this far in my ramblings, thanks for reading. I'm off to provide a nutritious snack for the 3 year old. (And his mother.)

Go glad to hear I am not the only one going through pregnancy blues :) I was glad to loose the extra weight in the first few months but it is so nice to enjoy food again :) Take care of yourself and those kiddos, good luck with schooling, and hope for a fast 5 weeks (mine leaves for weeks at a time too...I hate it) to go by!
