Thanks so much for all of your well-wishes! The response to our news on the blog and Instagram has been overwhelming and so positive, and we’re very grateful for your kind words and support. As ridiculous as social media can be sometimes, it always feels nice to share good news and receive such an outpouring of love 🙂
We should be able to move into the house this weekend! It has seemed that things were just conspiring against us a bunch recently, what with the delayed closing, then travel right after closing, then Ben and I tag teaming illness, and then a giant snow storm on Wednesday, but I think the end is in sight! Ben and his dad did a ton of work last weekend removing the horrific wood paneling, patching, sanding, and priming while I was sick. Then my parents and father in law were absolute rock stars and painted the entire house yesterday while Ben and I were at work, so all we need to do now is haul all of our crap in. The plan for Saturday is to get all of our stuff that we’re currently living with at my in-laws’ into the house so we can start sleeping there. Then Sunday we will (hopefully) get a bunch of friends with trucks together to help us empty our storage unit. Wheeee!
My sister in law, Emily, is back! Emily got a temporary job for a few months to sort of test the “moving home” waters. She was able to keep her job in Prague as well, in case things don’t work out, so she’s pretty busy, but it’s great having her around. She’ll be looking for permanent full time work over the next couple of months, and if she gets a job, her boyfriend, Jirka, will move here too! Yay!
Decaf peppermint tea is a life-saver today. I’ve had a resurgence of morning sickness the last couple of days, and actually threw up this morning for the first time my entire pregnancy so far! I stopped at the grocery store on the way to work for some mint tea and it is giving me LIFE. Well, that and the ham and cheese scones my lovely coworker Marci made for the office. Carbs first thing will need to be a thing I do until this nausea passes.
All you mamas out there, did your morning sickness reappear around 20 weeks, or is it just me?
