Finding Pleasentness

I find myself these days searching for things that are pleasant, trying to focus on something other than feeling horrible. There is nothing worse than standing over cooking meat preparing dinner for your family, when you are white as a sheet.

This has to be the hardest part for me the first 3 months. It seems that without much effort life can come to a grinding halt during this time. I have to force myself to even walk across a room sometimes. Along with the icks my brain shuts down...as I sit here my eyes wish they could shut tight not to open again for 3 more weeks.

I know I'm pouting, I have to pout to keep from falling asleep though ;-) Sorry for being so sporadic in my blogging lately. I am spending quite a bit of time in the garden....they are alot of work, aren't they? Things are growing well, so its worth all the work!

Its getting pretty warm here, it was 98 two days ago....which is the reason I am sitting here typing this out. This is the only room with the air on today (trying to save money) so I am in here cooling down, wishing Franky hadn't torn up the couch that used to be in here, now that would be lovely a nap on a cushy couch right in front of the air. Ahhh......see pleasantries, I found some!

I agree! The first 3 months are the worst! You feel icky and you don't really have anything fun happening yet. No movement that you can feel. The pictures of baby's development aren't even all that cute yet. And it seems to take FOREVER to get through this time. But it isn't really and it will be so worth it when you get to that finish line. Hang in there!

98 degrees, already? Hot weather mixed with nausea sounds like a lovely combination. lol. :-)

I'm praying for you to get through this phase, soon. :-)

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
