It has been a bit since I have been on and I am sorry! But really I have a good excuse, ok well no excuse is a good excuse but it’s all I got.
First I was called 400 miles away to be with my sister as she had her first child. naturally I fell behind on my blogging duties as I am big sis. It is my God given obligation to baby my baby sister the best Ican. It was a great time. I got to be there to hold my sisters hand and wipe her tears,as she joined me in the mommy club! We were always close but now that we are both moms and have been there for each other as we gave birth, I think we are a special kind of close. Also on my trip and as part of my sister duties.I spent one night in the hospital with my little sis so her husband could get some sleep on something other than the Chinese torture chair that was offered to him.
Yes, I am that good of a sister, and we can even make a hospitol fun so I was glad to do it. We chatted and rested, and gazed at the sweet little bundle of new life. After a midnight burger run my sissy and I settled in for a chat, where I brought up some things I had been feeling. I almost fell out of the Chinese torture chair when she threw out the idea that I might be pregnant. Your crazy and half drugged, sleep deprived, andhigh on hormones I quickly shot back. Sure I was tired, yes my breasts felt like they had been through the spin cycle, my gums were bleeding when I brushed, and the smell of cereal made me queezy, but so.
We were done having kids and we had gonethrough allot to come to that decision, so we had been very careful. Plus I had two more weeks until my monthly gift was due to arrive . So I finished my sister duties and came home. Of course this took up alot of my time and I just couldn’t find the time to get anything out, especially a blog post.
Of course when I returned home I had a ton of loose ends to tie up and we don’t even want to talk about the laundry! It took me two weeks to even get to some of my errands. It was a quick stop into target for t.p. and a birthday card when I realized what the date was, which brings me to my second excuse!
There I was in the t.p. isle and all of a sudden the dates became very clear, then like in a movie my sister popped into my head with her theory! So I purchased a test forgot the birthday card and rushed home. Downing a half gallon of water on the short trip home, sliding into the bathroom sideways, and ripping the package with my teeth. Then I waited, tick, tock, tick, tock. The longest three minutes of a girls life.
Well of course there it was staring me in the face… the second pink line!
This wonderful day was fallowed by about three weeks of panic, confusion, sickness, fatigue, mental math, and mood swings! Wich didn’t leave much time or mental capacity to blog!
So there you have it. My excuse’s! While I am still in the throws of the above side effects of the first trimester I figures I at least needed to let you all know I am still alive and full of excuses!
