Moving right along

One of my pet peeves is when after an unintentional blog break, bloggers reappear with a list of excuses why they haven't blogged and go on and on with "wow! I can't believe it's been so long!"

So I'm not going to do that.

I also am not going to backtrack and recap the last six weeks. Because honestly, I was so backblogged in my Google Reader, that as I went through skimming and clearing it out, I was relieved that most of the posts were Christmas related. Now, it isn't that Christmas isn't relevant year round, but I felt little guilt deleting all those Christmas posts since many were about Christmas crafts to do (a little after the fact now), Christmas traditions to start (file away for next year?) or stories of Christmas cheer (I'm no Ebeneezer Scrooge... but I'm ready to move on). So I'm not going to recap any of our Christmas festivities except to say:

Christmas did happen.
Emmanuel! God with us!
This year was so fun.

(It's even written in haiku form for your reading pleasure.)

And now I'll just update with a couple of important bullet points so I can move on with blogging:
  • I got a Mac for Christmas! I love it, love it, love it. It means that now I can blog from the couch. Maybe my blog posts will sounds more comfortable now.
  • I'm pregnant! We're due August 6th, just two days before Brody's 2nd birthday! So far so good, except I've been plagued with morning sickness... again. I'm 10 weeks along and past pregnancies indicate that I could have 4-8 more weeks of barfing fun. But at least it means everything is "working," right? We're very excited.
And thus concludes my first blog post of 2010. Happy New Year!


  1. yay for babies! boo for barfing. Love ya!

  2. Congratulations! Praying the next 7 months go quickly!

  3. Congratulations on the new baby!! Sorry to hear about the sickness, though. My first pregnancy, I was throwing up so bad I was on chemo medicine to help me out...but this time I took vitamin B6+Unisom (tablets only), and the difference was TREE-mendous! I still threw up some, but not as much, and not as bad. You can look it up, it's ACOG and midwife approved, and might be worth a try since you've still got a long time to puke. :o)
    Looking forward to hearing your progress! :o)
