oh, hello.

If you read as many blogs as I do, this story sounds familiar: blogger takes a long hiatus; breaks hiatus to announce pregnancy. Reason for hiatus? Exhaustion during the first trimester and fear of revealing their secret.

That's not my story.

First of all, I haven't been exhausted. I've taken exactly one nap. The only time I've felt nauseous was in La Jolla, California, after sea kayaking for 90 minutes on rolling waves with the smell of sea lions thick in the air. (They balance those little red balls on their nose to distract you from their slimy scent).

The pregnancy fairy decided to bestow upon me only the weirdest of symptoms -- tongue zits (which the highly reputable Yahoo Answers confirmed others have had while pregnant) and shape-shifting eyeballs. Oh, and you know how your hair is supposed to be luscious and full during pregnancy? That has held true strictly for the hair on my legs. My head hair is as limp and pathetic as ever.

My hiatus is a combination of visitors, vacations and a sudden job change that's had me working later than our building's janitorial staff. With some upcoming days off, I might be able to get back into the swing of this whole blogging thing because I could use a creative outlet more than ever. 

See you soon,



  1. Glad to hear you're in the lucky ones pregnancy club... The horrible morning sickness people might hate us for it, but I feel like we need to advertise that 1st trimester isn't all throwing up and napping (never did the former, did the latter twice in all of pregnancy) - because when all you hear about are the bad symptoms, you expect that's what it is. I felt so fine that until I could finally feel baby movements I panicked on a daily basis that maybe the baby had just disappeared.

    Anyway, your vacations sound lovely (as is that photo), and congrats on the new job - hope you're enjoying it, even if busy!

  2. I have no idea what's going on in your life and I hate it. Sudden job change? We need an email. Miss you.

  3. Congrats on your pregnancy! You look cute in your pic. Can't wait to hear catch up posts. Till then...
