7 weeks 4 days :-)

I won't be doing a daily blog post of how I feel but this is kind of my journal of sorts of what my experience is like. I feel really sick again today. Dusty said that this must be the "Don't-touch-me-mester", instead of my first trimester cause every time he goes to touch me I guess I give him a look. LOL It's just that every tiny little movement makes me S-I-C-K so I don't like to be touched. I still haven't thrown up but I am tired all the time and my stomach is messed up. I KNOW it could be a lot worse so I am thanking my lucky stars while it lasts!

7 weeks and 3 days

Today is the first day I officially woke up SICK to my stomach. It wasn't as bad as I am sure it could be so I am still grateful. I have wanted fast food like no other this past week. I get SO tired throughout the day and the thought of cooking makes me sicker :-) Maybe it's all in my head but it has sure been nice not doing dishes.

I am starting to figure out my whole insurance thing and get my head wrapped around that. Our insurance at work is very complicated and lots of people to talk to. It's much better than I thought though.

Last night I did 30 minutes of strength training and I thought I had just ran the Boston Marathon. It was hard and I was tired but it felt so good afterward. I need to keep that up.

That's all my ramblings for now. It's so hard to keep this a secret from friends. I am just doing everything that I can to make sure that things go well. I can't believe I have a baby on the way. I am so excited.

Gentle Reminder

I was reminded today that Heavenly Father knows me, loves me and is with me. He gave me a blessing that was completely unexpected but perfectly timed. I had wanted for it to happen a few years ago, but in His wisdom, it came right when I needed to put it to use. Heavenly Father spoke my "love language" today and reminded me how much He absolutely loves me. I am eternally grateful.

check your kids homework.....HAHAHA

Dear Mrs. Jones,

I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer. I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had, and then I found one more in the back room, and that several people were fighting over who would get it. Her picture doesn't show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot.From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.

Caring People

Some of you know how much I have loved my doctor. I have dealt with hypothyroidism and she has helped me through so much. She has call me on weekends, in the evenings, before hours and ALWAYS listens to me and makes sure she understands me before she does anything. She has been the absolute best doctor I have ever had. She is even my friend. Well in January I had to switch insurance companies and she was no longer a network doctor!! SO BUMMED! But I called her office anyway and asked to speak with her. I was out of meds and needed her to call in a subscription while I found a new doc interim. When I told her I couldn't come see her anymore she was bummed too. She gave me her personal cell number and told me to call her any time and she would help me find another doctor that I liked.

Well I had a few kind of emergency medical questions and called her cell to see if she would help me find a new doc ASAP. She spoke with me for 40 minutes at 9pm and told me to call her back and keep her updated on my situation. I mean, seriously, what kind of doctor does this?! She has gone out of her way because she cares so many times. I am sure she has touched a lot of people's lives. I am not going to take advantage of that but its nice to know that she is there and truly cares.

I am grateful for caring people and people who are so ready and willing to impart wisdom, experience and helpful advice. I mean as a professional her time is valuable and can bill for that kind of consultation but she is just a kind person wanting to help. I am grateful for her and lots of others out there who inspire me to be a better person and be more giving.

Does nobody care? This is completely cool?!

So, in my last post I mentioned that Dusty will be filmed in a documentary / movie as an expert and they are flying up here at the end of May to do it. Way cool! Go Dusty! I will be posting the trailer for it as soon as I figure out how....

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

OK. There isn't anything really interesting in this post after all. I haven't updated in a while. There has been lots going on but just your old mundane stuff. Dusty is plugging away at school and selling snakes. Yes, I said SELLING them! Luckily our collection of snakes is slimming down a bit. Dusty is moving on to other things in the herpetology / conservation world. You know, because with the 40 or so he is going to keep and continue to breed will be enough to keep his hand in it ;-)

I have been plugging away with Beachbody Stuff and fitness coaching and still absolutely loving it. I have been building a website, doing ALL kinds of stuff with it. Work is busy. Home life is busy. We are trying to figure out plans and life and everything in between. If you have any ideas let me know ;-)

Dusty did get asked today to be in a reptile movie / documentary. They will interview him on film probably this summer. That was WAY cool. It will more than likely be in like film festivals and of course on DVD.

That's it for now. I know, I told you there was nothing exciting. I will promise that the next time I write will be AMAZING :-)
