We're not the John and Kate plus 8

Darn it! I was hoping for at least a two for one for all this torture. But we only have one. We happily witnessed the heartbeat and found out I am really only 7 weeks and 4 days along. I am sure the midwife is wrong and we are right. We also had a super fun trip to Leavenworth where we spent the majority of the time catching up on television shows. Not having TV makes staying in a hotel so much more fun. We did peak out to go snowshoeing with our friends Sean and Sherilyn. The two hour flat snowshoe turned into a two hour straight up snowshoe. It was very fun and I felt very good. We came back Sunday rested, but it is only Tuesday and I already feel crazy. Deep breathe I can do it only 4 more days.

This blog is going to become about...

How freaking tired I am! How boring! Maybe I will come up with something more interesting to write. I am sitting in my second night of class and my eyes sting. Truthfully they have been stinging since 5 am body pump. And I am hungry. Does this prof really have to keep talking until 8:30 tonight? I hope not. Torture. Seriously.

Charge the Camera!

We have had 4 days off. It was especially needed for me. Damon probably thinks that no one could sleep as much as me! Today I got up at 5 am, ate, went back to sleep, got up at 8:30, went snowshoeing for 2 hours. Went back to sleep from 12:30 to 3:00. Now I have officially been up for 3 hours, we even made it to the grocery store. Snowshoeing was beautiful. Tarn loved it, especially when we ran into a snowman someone had made, he ran back and hid behind us. Of course the camera was not charged to catch it on film. Tarn is funny and hopefully tired enough to not get a walk tomorrow.

Happy New Year!

Of course, I am glad to see 2008 go. Bye horrid president, bye horrid economy, hello 2009! Personally, 2008 was a very good year. Family and friends are healthy!!! And so far everyone seems to be weathering the economic crisis - knock on wood. I have been able to manage a full time job and school without too much chaos - knock on wood. We got new hardwood floors, french doors, built a patio and tiled the bathroom. (okay Dad did most of it and the baseboards aren't up, the bathroom still is in shambles, and the patio didn't really turn out - I think it is the thought that counts). Damon and I have both been exercising on a regular basis. And we are excited to be welcoming a new baby - knock on wood - this August. Therefore, I am not making any New Year's Resolutions this year - if I can maintain, I'll be in good shape, and if I can't then I can't - so be it. Happy New Years! Let this be the best year yet...and maybe even the blog will get updated every once in awhile.
