I'm Still Here

Yep. Still here. Sorry. And wow, I actually got a minute to sit down and do this today, but as I sit here, there are two boys screaming in the other room.. hold on a second. Be right back.....
(insert elevator music here.)
Ok. Anyway, I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! I ate too much. On New Year's eve I was fairly certain my belly was going to explode.

Well, now that my first trimester is past, I have regained some of my energy. Although not all of it. Some things keep being left undone. Don't worry, I am drinking out of a clean glass. But I don't think there are any clean spoons to be found.
My brain has malfunctioned a bit lately too. On two separate occasions, I left a bag of groceries behind at the store. ( both in the same week).

Last night it occurred to me that I can list several things that start with the letter "P" for you!
(relevant to pregnancy of course!)
Here goes!
Pregnant- obvious
Popping out- I will ask Jeff to get a side view shot for you.
Pickles- really into them right now. doesn't matter what kind, either!
Potato chips- you know, with french onion dip! yummy! actually, any kind of chip will do.
Pretzels- the soft Super pretzels in the frozen section. i am loving them right now. Is any body else feeling hungry?
Pink- I have been blessed to have two friends loan me maternity clothes, and there are quite a few pink items. My closet never knew what pink was!
Potty- the story of my life. you know how it goes.
Problems (with my brain)- yesterday I gave the kids their vitamins and then went to put them in the fridge. duh.
Pooped!(as in tired)- by the end of the day, I am wiped out. oooh, that reminds me. I was going to tell you a funny story. Our neighbor has a blow up Santa in her yard. He's really cute and very rotund! Almost egg-like. anyway, she put him up about a week before Christmas and the kids loved it. Then, one morning Kevin noticed that poor Santa was face down flat in the snow.
Across the room I hear "Oh No! Santa's Dead!" It was so funny! I assured him that Santa would be back to himself around dinnertime when it gets dark. Anyway, I thought of that because on some days I feel like that flat,deflated Santa! which is probably why I haven't been posting regularly. Or maybe it's because I'm always standing in front of the fridge.
Speaking of that, it's lunchtime. oooh, I think there's leftover pasta from last night. Gotta go! :)

Very Cute Danielle....Happy to have you back! Sorry to hear that Kevin is now sick. Davey is doing better today, but had a couple of "bad" days with his illness. The cough medicine with the codine that the doctor prescribe worked last night, and he actually slept better!!! Ok, talk to you soon.
