I have discovered why I am so tired. I am pregnant, again. This was not expected, but my husband and I will figure out the expenses and living arrangements.

I am now in the worst part....the first trimester. The queasy stomach, the complete exhaustion. With two other kids it is harder to handle. I think the worst is being so tired. It makes my mood flat and toneless. I also easy loose my temper. I miss being happy and laughing with the kids. Oh well, this will pass.

So, the funny thing about my pregnancies, that I discovered with my last one, is that I can't stand to knit or look at yarn! (oh the horror!) It only lasts as long as the first trimester and the illness (thank goodness!). Yarn colors make me queasy and knitting just seems an awful thing. So, needless to say, I will not be knitting anything for awhile. I will try to post, but being tired will keep me from staying up past my kids go to bed.

I like all those count down ticker bars on other blogs, so I will add one for this pregnancy. I don't have an official due date from the doctor yet, but I will guess at one.

Well, wish me luck everyone. I don't know how I am going to handle having two so close in age. Especially since my boy now is very active.

Busy sleeping instead of knitting and blogging

I have been real tired lately, so when I get home and take care of the kids and put them to bed, I put myself to bed. I just can't seem to beat being tired. This is not good, since I have to finish up my bag for the Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap.

I recently mailed out my first swap package, (spring into summer dishcloth swap) and I was so excited about it that I forgot to add the note card with my name and all. I had to email Michelle , my swap pal, and let her know. She just received it today. Take a look at her blog to see pictures.

When I originally set up this blog, I had planned to keep it only about knitting. I realize now that I can't do that. I don't knit enough to keep myself interested in blogging and I could really use a place (journal) to have some personal time. I don't get much of that between work, kids and home. I don't know how I will handle it, but let's see how it goes.

I'll start a bit by saying I have a daughter, which I have shown a picture of in another post, and I have a new son. He is now just about 8 months. Very cute! (I will post a picture tomorrow). My daughter, Karima, is 5 and will soon be going to Kindergarten. I know I will cry!

It is getting late and I will be dead tired again in the morning. I better get myself to bed.
