Well, we've been (barely) surviving while Trav has been gone. I miss him so much! I've been doing all of the work that we normally share, and I have to say that I have an even higher respect for him and what he does at home while I'm gone now that I've had a taste of it again! In any event, I can't wait to go driving off tomorrow at midnight to go pick him up!!
So, I'm liking my new Blackberry Storm. Verizon is having a 2-for-1 sale and we were due for our "new every 2" phones (where you get $100 toward an upgraded phone every two years), so we got an AWESOME deal on a pair of them. It's pretty bizarre to be able to freely surf the web from your phone! I can listen to my favorite "channel" on Pandora (online radio) from my phone, and even have an awesome (free!) app called "Epocrates" that's basically a drug book in my phone. Referencing has never been so easy! I have a bluetooth for it, but I haven't gotten it set up yet...Trav can do it for me when he gets home. Hands-free is the only legal way to talk while you drive in California, not to mention that it'll be much easier while cleaning or nursing...and with another baby on the way!!
I've gotten active on MDC (the forums for Mothering Magazine, also known as Mothering Dot Community) again. I took a bit of a hiatus after I returned to work full-time. I had to find a balance in my life...being a wife, mommy, and sole provider is a tough juggling act! So, I just couldn't justify spending so much time on the internet anymore, and basically cut it completely off. Now I'm in a pretty good groove, have my priorities in order, and so I've allowed myself to get back on. I'm really enjoying being a member of a DDC (Due Date Club)! I'm also active again on my page at i-am-pregnant.com. So strange to be back...Deklan and Gavin were spaced apart so far that, now that I'm pregnant again, it seems like I was just pregnant a little while ago! I really am thrilled now about being pregnant. I'm settled in to the idea, and it's kind of cool to see again that God's plan ultimately rules! Now, I wonder if God's plan includes a little girl in our lives?
