After a loooong absence, I think I’m ready to return to (semi)-regular blogging. I’ve got a number of posts floating around my brain again, a sure sign that I need to write them down.
First, an announcement: we’re expecting! In nothing short of a miracle, I’m fourteen weeks pregnant with kiddo number four! Yep, we’re another one of those families following the infertility-adoption-whoa pregnant track. We’re expecting to meet this little one at the end of March. Cute, right?!?
Baby has been making his/her presence known 24/7 in the form of vicious nausea. I’m holding out hope that this week will be my entrance into the second trimester time of awesomeness.
Other than that…we’re in the middle of school week eight and looking forward to a break next week. I’m experimenting with the six weeks on/one week off schedule that is popular with many homeschool families. I can’t believe that we’ll be at Thanksgiving after our next round of school!
I’ve set a goal of reading Anna Karenina before the movie release in November. 50 pages in with 700 to go. I haven’t attempted such a lengthy read since Harry Potter! Recent months have found me wading through a pile of parenting books with chick-lit thrown in for fun. Recent weeks have found me wallowing in bed watching DC Cupcakes. Emma likes to snuggle up to watch that one with me—a whole show about cake!
We’re having Lemon Chicken for dinner tonight. Yum! I’m a little bit in love with my crock pot. So much so that I asked for a better one for my birthday (and my wonderful husband already bought it!)
