Ok, I lied...

I lied when I said nothing was going on in our neck of the woods! Last tuesday I was thinking to myself, "gee I don't feel so hot," but I just thought it was from all the traveling we'd been doing. I was very tired and could never catch up on sleep. Then I started feeling worse that morning (tuesday) and tossed my cookies. Then I started thinking, when was my last "moon cycle"??? I couldn't remember, but I thought hey, that was at the first of March! So I went to the store and took a test, and sure enough... we're pregnant! I did a dance and Benji giggled (b/c I looked crazy I'm sure). I made a shirt for Benji that said "I'm gonna be a big brother" and put it on him for when Nick came home. Nick walked in the door and I told him, "go get benji so we can eat dinner" he did and totally missed his shirt (it was very obvious). Then I asked him if he noticed anything. He said, "you cooked dinner and did Benji's hair?" I always cook dinner and I always do Benji's hair! "Look at his shirt!" He looked, but he didn't read it. "Read it Nick!" He read it and then I saw the wheels turning, "really!?" That's that. How funny, Nick is usually observant, but I'm not sure what happened to him that day!

The morning sickness has come full force and I'm doing everything I can to keep my food down. I'm feeling very weak, but at least this time some foods do sound good to me. Most of them sounded good to me last night (sunday) when I couldn't go to any store and do anything about it! Lame! You bet your boots that I'll be getting some of it today though! I'm going to have to postpone school until July, when my morning sickness should be pretty much gone. If not, then I'll go after the babe is born.

No we don't have any idea or hope if it'll be a boy or girl or twins even. I asked Benji through a series of tests and his conclusion is one baby boy. We'll see. If he gets it right, then we may have a second income coming our way - psychic readings.

Fun huh!

Just to let you know

Just to let you know, there's nothing going on here. Still on the hunt for a babysitter. Anyone want to move up here and babysit? I'll cook for you! School starts in a little over a week, it'll be awesome if I get to go! Benjamin is teething and is still wild and crazy. I'm sorry I have nothing to share with you, I just had to make sure y'all didn't think I would forget you for another month or so. Pictures to come soon!

Settling In

I apologize to all for the extreme slacking that's been going on in this lack-of-blogging blog. We've been busy, yes, but not that busy. I've also been recovering from all that's been going on and allowing myself to read and watch a bit of Matlock. I posted several videos to show the huge changes Benjamin has gone through. I'll try to get some video of him pulling himself up, cruising on the furniture, and just being so darn cute! He is a mad man! He wants to be everywhere all at once! He doesn't like to sit still that much. He's getting a lot better at sleeping at night.

Nick and I have been going on walks late at night around the parks and he falls asleep on those trips. Heaven!

I'm now starting school May 9th and am incredibly excited!! Now all we need to do is find a babysitter for when I'm in class.

Nick is now the gospel essentials teacher and I am young women's secretary. We're both so excited about our new callings! They couldn't be more perfect!

Our new home is cute and we've got most of the pictures on the wall. I don't know what it is about the last 1/4 of pictures that I just don't put on the walls. Our last apartment we didn't have all the pictures up until the month before we moved (after having been there a year and a few months)! Silliness! I blame Benji. I got most of them up a lot quicker this time. Now I just have to do a few more rearrangements of furniture and I think I'll be set.

Kris (my little brother) was recently in a car accident. Last week he was driving and something happened and he hit a couple trees and landed in a huge ditch (the details are hazy). He broke both femurs, one a clean break, the other had several breaks. He broke a bone under his knee, punctured his liver, fractured his wrists, broke his nose, has cuts and bruises all over, and I'm sure something else. It was very scary! He was life flighted and he's had mom and his dad tending after him since it happened. He is in a ton of pain, but is being very strong about it all. He is still himself - giving everyone a hard time. :) don't we love him! There's a lot more to the story, but I didn't want him to find out I wrote all this and be mad at me!

Nick is enjoying his new job and is getting used to the differences from his old job. The people he works with are very nice, which is especially nice since there's only 4 or 5 other people at his branch.

I guess this is what happens when you get behind in updating everyone, you have to write a novel. Which reminds me, Lee Child's next book comes out May 15th! Can life get better? I submit that it cannot! Well, then Harry comes out in book and in film in July, but that's a long time from now.

Adios, I gotta make dinner, I'm starved!
