Oh man, I know, I know. I am not so good at keeping y’all up to date. But honestly, nothing too big has been going on (and besides, I have been occupying my time trying to figure out how to help Britney. Poor girl). A while back we went to Kristine and Davis’s for supper, and it was super good. She made some pretty delicious chicken! And then not too long ago we had the Sorensen’s over for supper. Josh made ribs and it was pretty good. Actually, I don’t really like ribs, so I wasn’t a huge fan, but I am glad everyone else liked them! It was nice to spend a little time with them, since it’s been forever since I have seen like anyone. I’m like a homebody now. It’s pretty pathetic. I work, come home, eat supper and go to bed. I like to be in bed around 8. Even with 11 hours sleep, I still feel like I am not getting enough. I am hoping the “honeymoon” trimester effect kicks in soon so I can stop feeling like poop! I am still on Diclectin (had to get Dr. Calder to write me another prescription) since food and I are still not getting along. This baby better be freaking perfect when it comes out, since it seems to feel the need to steal all my nutrients and then make me throw up the rest! I’m kidding, I am glad it’s getting what it needs and I am grateful that I even have the chance to be preggers. Josh and I have yet to hear the heartbeat but we’re hopeful that the 28th will be our lucky day. Fingers crossed for us ok?
Hmmm…nothing much else in other news. Josh and I don’t do a lot, since I am on the freakin’ 3 month flu like plan. Josh has been getting back into his school and work routine. His schedule is the pits, with classes almost every evening. It sucks because we’re spending a lot on gas to and from town but I just keep telling myself it’s his last semester and then he’s done! I am so proud of him. I know he doesn’t see graduating as a big deal, but I think it is a huge accomplishment. He’s a smart cookie.
So yea, I guess that’s it. People have been asking about posting baby belly pictures, but honestly, there isn’t too much to look at. Oh, and I just want to go on a little rant for a second. I don’t know why people feel the need to touch my stomach! It’s not baby yet. It’s just bloating. It’s funny, because people come up (the best is when it’s people I hardly know) and they rub my tummy and say “oh, there’s a baby in there” and I am more like “it’s more like you’re rubbing my gas…thank you”. Oh man, it’s so weird. And awkward. Kristine, I know you had a thing with this too. I totally know what you mean now! And now I am done ranting. Hope you all have a good day!
Oh, I figured I would add pictures of when we went skating a while back. Best story of the night: Josh had his dad's skates and spent all this time lacing them up and the stood up and the blades broke right off the bottom. Pretty funny. Glad Jake Richards lent us his so he could squeeze into them for the hour long family skate!

I promise not to touch your tummy for at least another few months and even then I'll ask first!! We need to do lunch as soon as you are able to keep the food down.

I have to agree...I HATED when people (especially strangers) thought they could just rub my belly! I don't even let Travis touch my blelly most of the time!!! Anyway, hope you start keeping food down better soon!

I feel bad you have been so sick. Curt and I have really missed you guys. We have been hermits lately too but hope to see you soon. Glad you had fun skating.

The Bing's said...

it's great to hear from you...I won't touch the belly either...I alway try to be careful, and only do it if the person says it's okay. I hope that you start feeling better, so you can enjoy yourself a bit more!

Hope you feel better soon! I hated people touching my belly when I wasn't that pregnant yet. I probably will touch your belly when it's big though to see if I can get a kick!!

I dont understand why people need to touch your stomach but I have something that might can borrow it if you like. I have a t shirt that has the pillsbury doughboy on it and is says "poke me and die"

That's too bad that you are still sick! the 3 month flu plans doesn't sound fun! Hope it gets better soon!

ahhh pregnancy dont we love it. Im glad I only have 1 month left to go. You will feel better soon and it will go by so fast once you arent sick anymore.
I dont know why people have to touch the tummy.... and its always women who do it too, a man will never touch your gut, its always the girls... dont they remember how awkward it is??? i guess not.

So I am seriously behind on the
Nova Scotia gossip... or much
Congrats you two on the little
baby growing.. How exciting.
I can totally imagine it would be
annoying to have your belly touched
all the time. I used to give a lot
of pregnancy massages, and they
women would always complain about
that (obviously not while I was
giving them a massage).
Exciting times.. and I agree Julia
it is a big deal that Josh is graduating..
