Unexpected Blog Silence

So you might have noticed that it’s been rather quiet on the blog for the past two weeks. Partly this was due to me having those two weeks off work and, especially in the first week, our household’s obsessive watching of the Tour the France. Add to that the fact that I had to study (again) for the theoretical exam for my driver’s license and that we took Emma to the zoo for the first time last Wednesday and you can see I’ve been pretty busy. But being busy is a normal state of life when you have a sixteen-month-old running around (because yes, Emma is walking now!), so it’s not really a good reason for the complete blog silence that was going on.

No, the real reason for the sudden blog silence is this:

Yes, we’re expecting another baby. Hopefully B2 (as we’re calling him or her) will make their appearance on February 28th next year. Unfortunately, as with Emma, I don’t have morning sickness, I have 24/7 sickness and about three times as bad as last time. So I’ve spent the past two weeks lying flat on the couch, in between studying and taking care of Emma. Luckily, Wiebe was home to take care of all the stinky diapers, so I didn’t have to deal with those!

Of course every cloud has a silver lining and in this case it has two. One, we’ll hopefully be the the proud parents of another lovely little baby in seven months and two, I have also spent most of my time lying flat reading. I have ten books waiting to have their reviews written. Hopefully, the nausea will clear soon and I’ll be able to type them up. I owe a couple of reviews and two guest posts, which I will try and get out as soon as possible, but other than that, things might be slowing down from the three posts a week for a while. I’ll try and post at least once a week, but I can’t promise much more until the nausea passes. But look for at least a July recap – August upfront post this weekend and hopefully a review then too.

So that’s my news! Again, sorry for the sudden silence, but now you know why :-D

    Congratulations!!!

    I envy your ability to read. For some reason pregnancy is making reading incredibly difficult for me. All I want to do is lay there and gestate.

    I'm really happy for you and your family! That's so amazing. Congratulations, again!

    Congratulations! Great news about the baby – not so great about the sickness but in 7 months it will all be worth it! Plus great to read so much!

    Thanks ladies!

    @Sarah: It's what saved me last time. I must have read over 80 books in nine months. I just couldn't sit behind the pc and there was nothing on TV, as it was summer then too, so reading was pretty much all I could do :-D
