Why have I not been posting since September? Well I have a couple of reasons. The first reason is that I am pregnant! I had an extremely rough first trimester, with severe morning sickness, smell sensitivity, and general hopelessness for about the first 4 months. During that time I also had the severe hacking chest cold that went around Kodiak, followed by bronchitis. As soon as the bronchitis cleared up, and the nausea started to fade I had three weeks of headaches, which turned out to be an untreated sinus infection. I don't even want to say I am feeling better for fear I'll jinx myself.
Here's the little one at the last ultrasound, which unfortunately did not reveal the gender. We are having an elective ultrasound next week to hopefully find out if this is a little boy or girl.
And then there is the dissertation. My final draft is due to the graduate school on Dec. 3rd if I want to graduate this semester. And yes, I do very much want to graduate. The editing phase of the dissertation has been much more difficult than I had thought possible. Finally I am nearing the end, but am still not DONE, so you can expect to hear more from me in a few weeks.
Christmas will be so great this year.
