I can’t believe that January is almost over! I was looking through my blog and I noticed that the quantity of my posts seems to have diminished a little. I apologize for that, everyone! Thanks for your patience!
I can explain, really. I have been a little preoccupied lately as I am pregnant with #2! People aren’t kidding when they say that every pregnancy is different! I don’t know if it’s getting older, or having a child already, or what, but I have been so exhausted with this pregnancy. I literally could barely keep my eyes awake to get home from work, shovel some semblance of a meal into my mouth, and then go narcoleptic on my husband and daughter by passing out on whatever horizontal surface was closest. That coupled with the terrible bout of morning sickness (really, I don’t know why people specify morning. It lasts ALL DAY LONG…) made things very challenging for the past couple of months. I’m hoping now that I’m in the middle of my second trimester that things will begin to improve!
We did find out that we’re having a girl! My eldest daughter is very excited to be an older sister! We’ve been trying to prepare her for the shock of no longer being an only child by talking with her frequently about “baby” and how she will be so helpful and such a great example for baby. Of course, my daughter immediately decided that the baby is “her” baby and will never fail to give her baby a hug before she gives me a hug. Ironic, but sweet seeing as how it could go the other way!
Needless to say, all this passing out left and right hasn’t really given me much opportunity to craft anything. Even if I did find the energy to pick up some knitting needles or a crochet hook, I’d probably pass out on top of it and end up skewering myself involuntarily. I think I’ll leave the major crafting to when I have a little more control of my ability to stay awake. Until then though, happy crafting!
