It’s been almost a full month since Joy or I have posted anything.  Shame on us! It’s not that we haven’t thought about blogging, but we’ve both been a bit pre-occupied.  Also, neither of us like to post out of any sort of obligation.  We like to write when we have something worthwhile for our readers.  Today I have something worth mentioning on the blog.  I’M PREGNANT!

Perhaps you’re wondering why I am wearing a mask in this photo and why the pictures to the right look blurry.  It’s not your vision (or perhaps in some cases it is…) It’s smoke.  I live up in the mountains and we’ve had wildfires over the last 4 weeks, which has caused a tremendous amount of smoke in our county.  Between morning sickness (which I think is misleading considering the nausea often lasts the entire day – not just in the morning) and the smoke stacks, I’ve been a bit distracted. But I’m happy to report that I am now 14 weeks along and feeling so much better, and the wildfires have subsided as well.

I will have more to share in a couple of weeks following my eye appointment in Seattle along with my first day of cane training.  I need to get as much done as I can before baby number two arrives in spring!
