This pregnancy is really kicking my bootie!! With everyone else, by this time I was feeling so much better. I had energy, my appetite was back, and I was well on my way to being "normal" again. Not so this time. While I don't have the round-the-clock nausea anymore, I still don't feel good. I'm not sleeping good at nights, so I'm sure that has something to do with it. I suppose it is to be expected: this is my 9th baby after all and I am almost 35. But still... knowing the reasons doesn't make life any easier. The scary thing is: I'm just 14 weeks! Heaven knows what things will be like at 34 weeks... yikes!!
Okay, moving on...
We didn't get a whole lot of school done last week (see above), so I'm hoping that this week is different. It's a hit and miss kind of thing, with each day being drastically different from the one before. At least I start off the week thinking good thoughts, right?
We are house hunting. Not that it's much of a hunt, for we don't have much money and properties are ridiculously high around here. For example: a 2 acre piece of land, with nothing on it, is going for $15,000. Stupid. We live in the city (our "city" has a bit less than 2,000 people, so I use that word loosely) and while our house is large enough for our ever-growing family, houses our commercial kitchen just fine, we'd like to not live in town. We want the privacy that out-of-town living can give you. Plus, with many children of all ages, it's just better off all around if they have SPACE!!! If there ever comes a need to enlarge our kitchen, then it is possible when you're not in town and have lot lines to contend with. And we can have chickens...
We are going to tour a possible property on Wednesday, (a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house, on 15 acres, that already has a large shop insulated, plumbed, electrified, phoned, and fueled. That's huge for us!! And we can kinda afford it. The asking price is more than we want to spend, but it does say "motivated seller", so we'll see just how motivated she is. , it's 10 minutes away from where we are now, which is perfect for the small radius we need to stay in. I have being praying about moving for so many years and while I'm excited that we finally have gotten to the place where we can seriously look, I'm still praying for patience. I'm hopeful this will work for us, yet I don't know the will of God and what He has planned for us, so I don't want to get my hopes up just yet.
I see Dr. B on Wednesday and we should be able to hear the heart beat this time. I love that part!!
That's about it for today. Hopefully, I'll have some good news next week to share with you. (Although I'm not holding my breath, for my husband doesn't work that fast. Lol) You all have a good week and I'll type at you later!
