Wow, I haven't updated in a week

Where have I been? I have started 3 or 4 posts but never finished them. I have been actively reading the blogs. And for some reason feeling very busy.

How am I busy when I am not working right now (I left my job when I moved and have not looked for a new job here because we don't know how long we will be here and who wants to hire a preggo pop?)?

I seem to waffle from extreme crazy movement (driving to my mom and then ken's mom and then my mom again while they were sick) to incredibly boring lulls.

Crazy-Highs: We have had lots of visitors. I have been spending days, nights, and weeks cleaning the house we are living brothers have both lived in this house for the past 8 years and have left 8 years of crap and grime for me to clean up. I am working to get the house ready to sell when we leave. (yes, my parents are the best for letting us live here.) My parents are going through some non-fun things that involve ending up with pseudo custody of my dad's half brother's son (who is 11 years old and unfortunately has had quite a lot of bad things happen to him in 11 short years). My parents are/were textbook empty nesters. So this transition has been hard for them. I have been called in to pitch in, which I am happy to do.

Lulling-Lows: Throughout all of this going back and forth from Athens to Atlanta and cleaning and driving...I have long patches of waiting. Waiting for KW to stop studying for the bar each day...waiting to figure out where we are headed next...waiting for the pregnancy to make more progressions.

Yes, even the pregnancy seems to go through crazy times of Hurry-Up-and-Wait. The first trimester was not difficult compared to a lot, but it wasn't a lot of fun (read nausea) and this trimester has been great in comparison. I spent a lot of the first trimester and even second trimester feeling not really pregnant. Now, I feel great and definitely pregnant. And we have had some really great milestones: moving ultrasounds, good 20 week check up, getting a belly. I am getting the look of pregnancy and getting comfortable but then I start looking to the next stage.

I know I need to just enjoy this stage as I have it, but I'm so impatient!!!!

So this was a very disjointed and long post with too much packed in. This is the problem of not posting in a week. And a lot of it is vague because I shouldn't go into the details.

I hope to be back to my stupid regular posting now. With some new ultrasound pics and maternity clothes questions.

Great to have you back! I was just thinking of you this morning because I'm on a quick layover in the ATL airport.

And it's not stupid regular posting.

Good luck with the parents, and the cleaning, and the craziness, and the boredom. Somehow that all makes sense.

Love, Cita

Enjoy the 2nd trimester! I'm now at that totally uncomfortable waddling stage in pregnancy and enjoying a back talking four year old and defiant two year old.

Hope your parents getting into a comfortable routine, i cant imagine going from empty nesting to raiding an 11 year old. He's lucky to have them in his life.
