It is spring, homeschool is down to the bare minimum, I have been in a wretched slump (not depressed, in a slump, there IS a difference) But since I have determined to be overwhelmingly happy, giddy and joyful about it, I suppose that I am ready to say that I am…….Pregnant. That is right we are expecting our seventh child. I don’t really like making these kind of announcements until we enter in the safe months but since it appears everyone knows already, well why not! I had a doctors appointment yesterday and everything is perfect, and since the children knew even before I did I never had the opportunity to keep it a secret from them, they all want a baby brother:) We will see if they are right about this also.
So my slump is due to being pregnant, my lack of posts, my constant cat-napping and overall inattentiveness. Today, according to my due date anyway, I am officially in my second trimester, oh yes, I am due in the beginning of October.
Okay so now that that is taken care we can move on to weightier subjects like why do people driving south on the freeway speed and why do people driving north on the freeway crawl along at barely the speed limit? This has been bugging me (did I mention I have been blessed with insomnia lately?) Along with the nagging question, what percentage of the population clips and uses coupons? And why are ducks wicked cute and smart but chickens are, to be polite, NOT?
I came in the house the other day to find Caleb in the dogfood bag to his ankles happily munching away. What part of the food pyramid would dogfood be under?
You might be moving up in life if instead of having a ramen for lunch you spring for the good stuff and boil water for a Cup O Noodle, seriously, we all know a .38 lunch is only for those who received a pay increase of .49.
I need to sleep.
Oh you should totally pre-order this book by Sandra Boynton called Perfect Piggies! We are huge fans and I am so excited to order this for Alice’s birthday:) also Happy Birthday little Pookie, Alice has all the Pookie books and okay sure I KNOW they are supposed to be for toddlers but they are so delightfully clever and wonderfully illustrated that we adore them.
