Happy New Year!

I will not apologize for being absent…I will not apologize for being absent…I will not apologize for being absent…It bugs me when people do that…But it deserves an explanation, right?!… ;)

You may (or may not) have noticed a lack of regular posting over the last several months. I will not apologize for that, because  I did it on purpose and I did better things with my time. I.e., I took naps. Lots and lots of naps. The kind where you wake up feeling like you were almost 6 feet under the ground and your eyes had to open before you had completely surfaced again.

But I’m doing better, y’all! Those naps are no longer an everyday occurrence, I can eat chicken without gagging, I can scrape the dinner plates into the trashcan without running outside for a blast of cold night air to calm the queasies, and I can stay up past 9:30 sometimes without propping my eyelids up!

I can also feel lots of tiny, quivery, baby kicks :)


I clearly am not one of those (rare!) people who gets more energy during pregnancy. Didn’t happen with Camon, hasn’t happened this time. For 12 weeks or so, just looking at a computer (or TV) screen made me feel exactly like I was extremely carsick. That phase started during the 31 Days series, and that’s why I didn’t finish it. :) I am very thankful our family’s livelihood doesn’t depend on my working on the computer, because I would have been in for a rough few months of it!

I’m planning to try to post once a week here. I have lots of great ideas floating around in my head that I’ve done, cooked, sewn, or would like to finish. I enjoy the process of photographing and writing about them, but if naps, Camon, or other things need to come first, they will. I will not sacrifice legitimate sleep needs for much. :)

Hope you all have gotten your year off to a great start! We had a fabulous holiday with family (minus some serious head cold sickness!) and are getting things put back together at home. I’ve got some fun stuff in January–a new book review, a pattern review, and one more thing that I can’t remember what it is. Ha. :) Oh–I remembered! How could I forget? A very long list of strategies for dealing with the absolutely insane itch of eczema during pregnancy. My arsenal of lotions and potions has expanded since last time. :)

Have a wonderful day!

  • Congratulations Diana! I have been thinking about you often over the last few months and praying for you and now I know why!! I pray that your pregnancy sickness goes away soon. Look forward to hearing more from you this month!

    Glad to hear you’re starting to feel better. I thoroughly sympathize. When I was pregnant with my daughter I didn’t have morning sickness, I had 24 hour a day sickness. It lasted for 3 or 4 months and was really hard to get through at times. Sometimes when you’re pregnant it is just not possible to do everything that you did before pregnancy, so just accept that fact and do what you reasonably feel you can and then just let everything else go. It only lasts for a few months, and the baby you will have at the end of it all makes everything you went through worth it. Hopefully you will be feeling really good in the near future so you can thoroughly enjoy the preparations and anticipation of your new addition to the family, and we will enjoy your posts whenever they happen to appear!

  • Congratulations! And glad you are starting to feel better.

    Love the tiny stocking. :)
