We are finally on the recovery side of the flu.

I've been so hungry!!!!!!!!

I'm not sure if it's from being sick, or possibly from being pregnant.

But what I'm craving is sandwiches.

Yesterday I ate a dinner roll spread with apple butter, and topped with cheese.

Does that sound weird to you?

It tasted ridiculously yummy to me.

I was perusing the web for pictures of sandwiches, and the one above made me drool.

Except I think it needs a slice of sharp cheddar cheese slipped in there with the lettuce, tomato, and ham.

What do you think?

I think one of the hardest parts of being mom is when your family is sick.

Cause in the middle of the night when they throw up all over their bed, and the floor and everywhere........

they don't yell "Daaaaddy"

They call for momma.

Funny how I took that for granted when I was the one calling.

My mom was always there, and she never seemed too tired.


She must have been a super mom.

Or perhaps my memory is a little faulty. :)

We are in our second week of yucky gastrointestinal flu.

I am so tired.

And so done with bodily fluids.

But I keep going.

Grasping at a Hand that is stronger than mine.

I'm so thankful that He doesn't get tired.

Dr. Who?

I don't particularly enjoy going to the doctor.

What I like even less is going to a doctor that I've never met before.

I've had the same family doctor for about 7 years.

He has a good sense of humor.

He acts like you are the only patient he has to see all day.

And I'm comfortable with him.


he doesn't deliver babies anymore.

Apparently he doesn't like crawling out of his comfy bed in the middle of the night, or whenever a baby decides to appear.

I can't really blame him. :)

This means that I have to go to a new doctor for this pregnancy.

I'll call her Dr. M.

She is very nice, and reminds me a little of one of my favorite aunts.

But, she is still not my doctor.

I guess this sounds a little petty........

I'm curious, do any of you mind going to a new doctor, or midwife?

Progress.....sort of

Yesterday's hearing was frustrating.

I'm glad that I wasn't there.

Somehow it's easier to deal with that stuff from the comfort of my home. :)

There was some small progress though.

Small enough you almost need a magnifying glass to see it.

But, I'm thankful for what did happen.

And I'm thankful for your prayers.

Prayer Request

Sugar Pea has a court hearing today.

The judge who is assigned to her case so far has been very hesitant to take any action one way or the other.

I can't share a lot of details, but the birth parents choices are continuing to spiral downward.

Please, please, pray that there will be some progress today.

Ok, so I promised that I would tell you about the one small thing that has been keeping me from my blog.

I've been so tired--I mean fall asleep in my chair with my children playing around me tired.

I started feeling nauseous a couple weeks ago, and thought I had the stomach flu.

Then I thought maybe I was going through early menopause. ( sorry, I really did )

But the truth is that I'm pregnant!

You can stop laughing now. :)

After fifteen plus years of marriage, and several doctors telling us that it was "extremely unlikely" that I would ever conceive.

I'll try to keep all of you updated--for now the news is this.

I can't drink coffee--it makes me feel ill.

I feel tired--did I mention that already?

Reading things on the computer makes my nausea worse--hence my absence on my blog.

I got to see it's little heart beating yesterday via ultrasound--made me feel so happy!!!!

A Good Reason

I just realized that I haven't posted on here for over a month---sorry!

I've been busy



taking Sugar Pea to her parenting visits

and a lot of other things.


I have one very small, and yet very important reason for not blogging.

.....but I think I'll wait a few more days before I tell you what it is. hee hee

Do you want to guess?
