You KNOW I paid that $4.83 (which was a whopping 5 cent sale) to bring home the first egg nog of the season! I may or may not have a problem.
We have been having a very mild fall. We've had several frosts, but it always warms up in the afternoon. I have been rather sick (yeah!), but the other day, Justin insisted we get out. We took the kids and the kayaks to the lake. I sat on the blanket most of the time, but it was nice to sit in the sunshine and watch the family play. It was no where near warm enough to play in the water, but the girls had a great time with the sand.
We all took turns in the boats and enjoyed paddling around. In a pinch, the paddles also make great shovels .
I am 13 weeks along and am slowly starting to feel better. Two days ago I didn't get sick until after dinner (I've always had morning sickness at every time BUT the morning), but yesterday I was sick most of the day. I can feel the intensity and duration of the sickness beginning to taper and am looking forward to the easier second trimester.
The real problem at my house right now is laundry. Our dryer is out (long story) so we've been hanging clothes. We don't have a real clothes line--just a line strung between the back porch and a pole--and it only holds one load of laundry. Because it has been so cold morning and evening, I'll only have time for one load to dry per day. You can imagine that that one load is not nearly enough to keep up with all of our laundry! My alternative is to wash several loads then take them to the laundry mat to dry. The problem? The smell of the wet laundry makes me nauseated That makes me not want to do laundry at all. That means everything in our house is dirty and the laundry is taking over my life.
The good news is that our architect is wrapping up the first draft of our house plans and we'll be able to see them next week! I am more excited every day. We're supposed to have a mild winter. Oh, man, would I love to start building early. Well, we will see and I'll keep you posted.
