We are alive (barely)!

I say barely because since Thanksgiving, it has truly been one thing after another. Sara has been sick off and on, Michael was sick, and although I haven't officially announced it, we found out on November 8th that we are expecting another baby -- and morning sickness has attached itself to me and will NOT let me go. Some of you may or may not know, but this is our third try this year for another little one. We had a miscarriage in February and one on September 1, and true to past history, this one hasn't been easy, either. We've had several trips to the ER/OB clinic due to some problems I was having, but twice now we have seen a healthy little baby on ultrasound with a steadily beating heart! I am just 9 weeks, so still very early on.

So THAT is why I have been absent! It is all I can do most days to take care of myself and Sara, not to mention housework and all that good stuff. Hopefully it will fade soon, because I have a few new projects I really want to tackle and share! We will be doing a LOT of redecorating in the new year -- painting almost the whole house, laying wood floors, and even redoing some furniture. I can't wait to share!
