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!
