A welcome weekend

Hey y'all!

I'm sorry I've been MIA for the last couple weeks. The move and a big reorg at work have me running around every two seconds. I'm very very excited to say that my Mum, Dad, and little brother are flying in tomorrow for a week(!) to help me out.

(I say "little" brother but check out below. In this photo I'm 6'. Told you he's a big boy.)

(Little Brother and I don't hug.)

I am seriously tearing up, I'm so excited.

Truth be told, I need a little babying. DH has been gone and I'm super stressed out. I also haven't told DH that I've felt bloody awful for the past three weeks. (See, this is a reason to find doctors EARLY when you move!) I don't know what's wrong with me but I'm utterly exhausted ALL THE TIME. I've also been incredibly nauseated for weeks now. You'd think I'd be fitting into my all-time skinniest jeans due to the inability to eat but all of my pants are fitting weirdly and I have to wear skirts.

Oh, and I almost killed myself last night when I ate something to which I'm allergic (still undetermined) and my throat closed up. Awesome.

Wow. /bad vibes>

In HAPPIER news, I've become completely addicted to the Twilight series. See, some of you with girls know what I'm talking about. Everyone else is going "huh?" They're a "young adult" series of novels about (Oh, I hate to admit this) a vampire-human-werewolf love triangle. I promise, they are very entertaining! They're about 400~500 pages but the font is large and they're a quick read. The final installment is coming on Monday and I'm VERY excited. If I don't sleep Saturday night, I'm pretty sure I can finish it by the time we head to church Sunday morning. :)

I've also been watching a bunch of tv shows from the early 90s. Mad About You and Northern Exposure, mostly. Interesting observation: I used to think NE was HILARIOUS and MAY was "eh." I now find MAY *HYSTERICAL* and NE sort of "eh." That perspective sure changes once you get married, no?

Paul: What's the big deal with Valentine's Day? It's a made-up holiday. Nobody even knows who this St. Valentine guy was.

Jamie: He was a Roman priest who defended the Christians and was beheaded by Claudius II on February 14, 269 A.D.

Peace out to Brooklyn. I'm out.

Are your breasts sore too? Hmm...

Enjoy your help!

F&FF: That was my first thought too. Four EPTs later, I'm pretty dang sure I'm not preggers. *chuckle* Still doesn't explain why I feel like flu-ish 24/7. Hmm...

I hope you feel better soon! Glad your family can come visit.

I'm addicted to the books too! I have finished all 3 in the last few weeks, but it only takes about a day or two to read. I'm excited about Monday's book...though I feel like I should be 14 or so... :-) Hope you feel better soon..I've heen having to wear my skirts too, cause my pants are a little snug lately! :-(
