Where in the WORLD Have you Been?!?!
I am sure that is the question that EVERYONE has been asking. For awhile, I honestly asked myself if I was going to get back to the old Kristin. And, let me tell you, I am not completely there, but I am better.
Last time I posted... A LONG TIME AGO... in July, I had just found out that I was having a baby. And, let me just say that immediately after that post, I went downhill. I literally spent the entire month of July and the first portion of August laying on my couch. I didn't leave my house much, wash my hair daily, or even eat a whole lot. I was dizzy, nauseated, and had no appetite AT ALL. This was a whole new experience for me because with my daughter the only pregnancy symptom I experienced was fatigue.
Thank the Lord for my awesome mother and mother-in-law. They took care of my daughter, brought us food, did laundry, and helped me straighten up the house.
Where was my husband some may be asking... In July, he was gone for a week to coach an All-Star football game for the state of Missouri. Then, in August, football season was in full swing; weight lifting, practice, etc. So, he was there, but not all the time.
Towards the middle of August, back to work I went. By the time school started back, most of my morning sickness was gone and I was forever thankful. But, then I started battling fatigue with the every day grind.
My daughter started preschool this year, so that has been a whole new experience for our household as well. It is a little harder to get her up and ready to go for preschool than for daycare. It requires a little bit more grooming and preparation. And, she is NOT A MORNING PERSON!!!
I haven't forgotten about this dear blog of mine, but I had to put it on the back burner for a little while. Everytime I told myself I was ready to start blogging again, something would come up or I just wouldn't feel well. And, on some days, I would get up and say I was going to make a post that evening, but then that evening came and I just wouldn't have the time.
But, I think I am ready to take back this special spot of mine. At the beginning, there may not be as many posts as usual, but I will definitely get there.
I want to thank each and every one of you for being patient with me. I know it felt like I made a pregnancy announcement and vanished, but I do apologize. During my first pregnancy, I didn't experience any of the things that I have with this one. So, when they say that two pregnancies are never the same, they were speaking the truth.
For my next post, I will show y'all how we told our parents we were expecting a baby. It required a little decorating!!! ; )
With lots of love & appreciation,
