So I have been VERY absent from my blog as of late simply due to the fact that I’m spending most of the 24 hours of a day feeling like I’m going to puke. After just over 2 months of this nonsense I’m finally starting to feel better and can actually THINK again! It’s amazing how sickness just wipes everything from you. I couldn’t read, I couldn’t think, all I could do was come home each day after work and lay on the couch while my husband cared for our one year old son, made dinner, did the laundry, the dishes, and everything else that I usually do in my attempt to be a housewife, at least in the evenings. With that said, the sickness is due to a good thing, I’m pregnant with Perry Baby #2!! As much as I dislike being pregnant, I’m really excited for our second child to come on the scene. We wanted to have our children close in age as Chris and I both are 4 years older than our next sibling, with me being 15 years older than my youngest sibling. Growing up I greatly disliked my sister next in line because she was just annoying. I mean as I was entering high school she was starting 5th grade. It wasn’t until I went off to college and she entered high school that we really became anything resembling friends. Now we’re the best of friends, but it was a long time coming! My youngest sibling of my mom and step-dad doesn’t even remember me living at home with her because she was barely 3 when I moved away to college. And of course I never got the chance to live with my dad’s three kids who are my half siblings. I hate these facts because I’d love to have a closer relationship with all 7 of them! So…. with that said I’m really excited that our first two kids will be only 18 months apart! Not that siblings being further apart in age is bad because we both love our siblings very much, but we’re excited to have ours closer. Admittedly I’m hoping for a girl… all the bows and ruffles, ballet shoes and tulle skirts make my heart skip a beat, but brothers that close in age would be great fun too. We’ll find out on June 3rd which it will be.
Now that I’m starting to feel better, I’m really hoping to blog more. We’re going through a lot of transition in our family right now. Chris is making a career change and looking into possibly going back to grad school this fall and there is so much on my mind but I’m just starting to process it and dig into God’s Word to find the strength needed to walk through it all. I’ve put it all on hold in my head, but I’m ready to start digging in! Hopefully you’ll walk through it with me. Talk to ya soon!
