Yesterday, Today, and since about 3 months ago…

NO MORE MORNING SICKNESS!!!!!  And boy was it a doozy!  I made it through, just barely, and a lot is going on right about now.  Here’s a summary:

  • Vacationed in August and October–first New Hampshire for a week and then Nova Scotia for 5 days.
  • My parents and a family friend visited for two weeks, during which we took our Nova Scotia trip.
  • I have slowly been getting my “want to” back, and have started cooking and cleaning again.
  • We received orders to move which were then canceled because they were invalid.
  • We now have orders again, although not “in hand”, for next summer.  We will be moving to a warmer climate after having been here 7 years.
  • I have gained and lost weight, and had a cavity filled, all in the midst of debilitating morning sickness.
  • We have a sonogram scheduled for Monday–and yes, we will be finding out the gender of our new baby!
  • We have two birthdays coming up between Thanksgiving and Christmas, plus…
  • Hubby leaves in just a little over a week for 6 months…   :’-(

In spite of all of this, I do have to say that school has been going very well.  7yo has made great progress, and 13yo’s writing has improved greatly.  And the fact that we even did it at all during my “life on the couch” is pretty amazing in itself.

My husband will be leaving on deployment and he will not be here for this next baby’s birth , just like last time, and as soon as he returns we will be packing up and moving.  It’s going to be a busy year for us.

That’s the big picture, but as for this week we have had pretty normal days except, for some reason, more appointments than usual.  Today we did art and home ec.; made lots of bread and did lots of laundry.  Had many many phone calls and a neighbor drop by to visit for a few.  I tried this recipe for the first time today.  It smells and looks delicious; I hope it tastes just as good.  Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures because the batteries in my camera are dead.  I wish I did because it looks just beautiful.

Well, that’s my un-fabulous yet very satisfying update on my life for the last few months.  I hope to be able to be posting more regularly again, with pictures and everything.

  1. So glad to see you back! Congratulations on the new baby! I can’t wait to hear what it is! And I’m so sorry to hear about your hubby leaving 😦 Love and hugs to you. I know how hard that is–and missing the birth on top of that. I will be praying for you and checking your blog regularly.
