I'm back!

Please forgive my very, very long absence. When I saw the date of my last post, I was mortified! It doesn't feel that long. Life sure flies by!
Several reasons I've been gone from the blog world: 
Until recently, we didn't have a consistent working computer. One got fried by lightning, one crashed, and the laptop has been temperamental. Through several weeks of swapping parts and hard drives and wires and who knows what all, Tim managed to cobble together a working model. Yay!

We all got a nasty sinus infection when we returned from Texas. We're a family who shares, so it made the rounds with each person twice, staying for at least a week each time. Tim and Hope got better but I didn't. 

After a few weeks, we made the discovery why: after 6 years of trying and getting through one miscarriage, I'm pregnant with our second child! Woo hoo! It's very exciting and very scary at the same time. It's been 10 years since I've been through this. I'm a bit older and a bit (okay, a lot) heavier than I was then, and I'm afraid I've forgotten everything about how to take care of a baby. It'll all come back, I'm sure (I hope). 

Well, just like last time, I've been horribly sick for the last several weeks. The couch has become my home, and the worst part is I feel too crummy to crochet most days. But the last few, I've been feeling OK enough to attempt some light housework and sit at the computer for a little while. I'm hoping the next few days will bring with them the ability to crochet some. Oh, and I should be able to upload some pictures as soon as I find my camera and computer cable. With all the computer problems, everything got moved.

I hope all is well with everyone. I haven't had the chance to check anyone's blogs lately. Soon, I hope. 
Thanks for reading!
Blessings :-)
