I'm better. I am over the worst and gradually feeling better. I did a lot of reading through the worst to distract myself. I had a lot of fun reading the Artemis Fowl books. I haven't read the last of the story so I won't say that I completely recommend them but so far they have been great fun. I'm also reading Art A New History by Paul Johnson. He adds such interesting tidbits in the book, but I have trouble wanting to stay chronological while reading the book. The problem is I'm bored with the ancient civilization's art. I know with a giant art history book I should not have this psychological block but I do. Ah well.

I also picked up my advent calendar I've been working on for 3 years. I need to finish some of my projects! Here's a picture of it and a sketch I did of it to start. The windows and doors are pockets for candy. It is about 3 feet long and a foot and a half wide. Some are just pinned on and not sewn yet and of course there are all sorts of embellishments I want to add. I'm determined to have a functioning calendar by next christmas.

I will not be posting for a while because I am very nauseous and throwing up often because of the baby growing in me. Please say a prayer for me this is the worst part of pregnancy for me and it is so trying to do the simplest tasks. Aaaaaaaaarrrrrrggggggghhhhhh. it will be over soon. it will be over soon. If anyone has any tips I'll take them. I'm still trying to figure out how to deal with this even after doing this three times already.

Ducktales and Facebook and Baby

I found an old Ducktales video at the thrift store and have been loving reliving my childhood watching the cartoon with my kids. I know all the words to the theme song. I walk around the house singing it. A bit pathetic. I have also been trying to figure out facebook but half heartedly. I don't want to figure out another thing on the computer. I'm getting old.

Speaking of getting old I turned 29 on the 30th. My mom decided to have all her children before she turned 30 . I have been thinking that even though I'm having twice as many kids it seems a good plan. I'm pregnant with my fourth and this is the official announcement. I'm really starting to get nauseous and thinking that this might be my last. Four is a good number. This is the first I am going to have at home with my friend Elizabeth who is a midwife. I'm excited but want lots of prayer. That means you.
