Where I've Been

I think it's about time to spill the spill the beans about the bean, that is =)

You see, about a week after moving into our new home, I seemed to catch a stomach flu. Either that, or I ate too many cherries. This went on and on, and then it dawned on me. I've felt this before. This strange nausea, exhaustion. In fact, I've felt it a few times. Oh, dear me, after a quick, panicked trip to Walmart, it was confirmed. Seems our big ole house is going to get a bit fuller. There's a new Bean on board at Chez Willow Wisp.

While I've been busy working on growing said bean, hopefully now appearing less bean-like every day, I've been feeling not quite the top of my game. I claim a successful day if I can eat 3 meals; If I can get out of bed, and actually shower. Oh, and I'm quite thrilled when I can actually get something accomplished, such as laundry, or feeding my other two littles. You see, this pregnancy is proving to be a tricky one. Let's just hope the little Bean is much more cooperative once he/she makes an appearance in late Feb/early March!

We've also been busy with Pony Club, relatives coming out, and we have 2 more extended camping trips before summers end.

I will be back, and Lord help me, past all this morning (or in my case, all day) sickness and back in the game. I am far too busy with plans of painting, board and batten projects, decorating etc to let this keep me down. After all, I want everything to be in tip-top shape before Baby #3 arrives!!

Have a wonderful few weeks, and never fear, I shall return very soon!

Oh, sweetie, congrats! What a joy. May all go smoothly & you all be blessed.

Yes, it was a very difficult time for us, but the pain eventually gets tucked inside, the hold never mends.

Thank you for your support of our Miracle Makeoer.
