Whew! We made it through another Christmas successfully. If you've been wondering where I have been, I apologize. The holidays can seriously stress me out, and I needed to focus my efforts on survival. With our new found free time, we decided to start thinking about house projects again.
This hole has existed in our otherwise fully functioning kitchen for going on 10 months now. As far as I know, we have not lost anything down there!
Jason tackles the hole with some hardie board while George Costanza looks on. Jason bought that tv with the Christmas money from his uncle. Thanks Lee!
And tada! This hardie board is certainly hardy. When we FINALLY make a decision and pick some tile for the backsplash, the tile can go directly on this stuff. In the meantime, we do not have to worry about losing a measuring cup to the black abyss of DIY remodel living.
But the REAL reason why I have been neglecting my blogging is that I'm PREGNANT! Anyone who reads this blog most likely already knows that, but it's fun to shout it from the blogosphere mountaintops. I've basically been too exhausted the last couple months to do much of anything besides dragging myself through the things that I HAVE to do, so blogging and housework have fallen by the wayside a little bit. Today I'm 12 weeks, so I'm hoping the second trimester will bring some of my enthusiasm back.
So is this blog going to turn into a baby blog? Probably, just warning you. I still plan to make posts about DIY projects and other random things, but who am I kidding, are we really going to have much time for that stuff? This blog is about the details of our day to day lives (that I choose to share with you all), and this is pretty much the most exciting thing that will be going on with us for a while! So for my Mom and anyone else who cares, here is a picture of the belly!
(Clearly I did not put much effort into my appearance today, but it is my day off.) So there it is, 12 week belly. I've had TWO people tell me I'm showing already. That kind of bothers me. I'm not ready to be fat, not yet! I want to hold it off as long as I can. I've definitely gained some weight, but I was hoping I could pull off carefree 20 something a little longer. Gini and Jason say I'm not showing yet, but I think that is their job to say that. Honestly though, looking at that picture, it isn't as bad as it feels. I feel like a huge bloated blimp, and that looks like maybe I wasn't sucking in for this picture. But I was!
