Brain Dump...

 a dkSo... May went by fast, and June... well June, I wasn't really coherent during June. I am so thankful for some great kids that let me just lay in bed, and then on the couch. They really did help as much as they could. And Steve was great too!! He cooked and cleaned and shopped for me while I was so sick.

So really not a whole lot happened during those times but some things did. I want to get back into blogging so I'll start by getting caught up....

The boys helped Benji get breakfast.... it could have been a lot worse. I can say that kids can, in fact, live on cereal for a month.
 We did make it to the beach, not a whole lot in June, but a couple times...

 Legos were played with... a lot. Many creations were made, and destroyed.
A huge thank you goes out to my friends Alice and Ray for the Legos that they sent the boys. A box showed up in the mail one day and at first shake the boys knew what was in it. The boys got a box of a bunch of old school Legos. At one time they were probably part of a set. The boys loved all of the Legos that they got. All the pulleys, all the castle settings and horses and knights, and all of the car parts. Hours of {mostly quiet} fun was had while I was laying on the couch.
Once I found out I was pregnant I know I was going to be sick and want to just sleep, so one thing that I wanted to do before I got to sick was to watch the sunrise on the beach. So I dragged myself out of bed one morning to go down to the beach.

 This little crab was making his way down to the water but came pretty close to check me out.

I do have to say that while the sunrise at the beach was nice,  nothing can beat a desert sunrise.
The boys all finished another year of homeschooling and I now have a 3rd grader, 2nd grader, 1st grader, and a Benji.
There was a lot of book reading and I love that they are snuggled up together.
Oh.... and more Legos....

That is pretty much our May and June in a nutshell....

Things are better now and the boys are eating more than just cereal every day. We are at the beach at least once a week and the house.... we the house is still a disaster but there is a good reason for that......You'll have to wait to find out why....

Alive and mostly well...

Hello..... {echo}... hello, hello....

Is there anyone still out there??

I am here.

I have a good reason... do you want to hear it? Well.... we are adding to the family in January. Yup, we are getting another little blessing. We found out in May and well... I have been sick ever since.

Oh, I have been so sick!! I won't go into to many details but it was bad! Nothing would stay down, I slept at least 14 hours a day, and I could feel my body consuming itself because I couldn't eat anything. It was bad.

The boys were so good!! Even looking after Benji when I couldn't. They played well, and mostly stayed out of trouble. And Steve was so good!! He was so helpful, cooking for me and running all the errands that needed to be done.

BUT...... I made it! I am alive!

I still move a little slow, and cooking is hard... and I still feel like I need a nap every day, but I am alive. I have a little pooch, and am looking pregnant.

We will find out in about 3 weeks what we are having. Most think you only have a 50/50 chance of what we are getting, but Tim is holding out for a droid, so I'm not sure what the ratio of odds would be for that.

We are very excited for this new adventure. {and I am happy to not be puking any more}

I will update again soon on what has been going on, I just wanted to assure you that I am still here.

one quick click will help me get into the top 25!!
