The Michaels, M.I.A.

Lately, my days consist of getting up before my family even wakes up, getting ready, leaving for my day. Traveling all over the state of ohio, eating eating eating all morning long. I’m starving in the mornings! By the time I get home in the evenings, I’m so spent and nausea begins to set in. I don’t want dinner, I don’t even want to SMELL dinner. After we swing some sorry excuse for food for Isabelle and Conrad, I give in and eat oatmeal around 7ish, before we get Isabelle ready for bed. I collapse into bed not long after her!

I feel like crap, BUT I’m not throwing up several times a day like I was when I was pregnant with Isabelle! Whoo hoo! I have to say that I am sooo thankful for my wonderful husband! He has more than taken up the slack for me while I’ve been out of commissions. Without a doubt, this is the man God had prepared me for! He was doing the dishes a few days ago after dinner and afterwards he sighed and said, “I love a clean kitchen.” I prayed for a clean husband, and God was faithful!

More often than not, he is the one taking care of Isabelle. He get’s her ready and off to daycare in the mornings. And when he comes home at night, he starts entertaining her and spending time with her because Mommy is usually totally tuckered out and at the end of her patience with Isabelle. And let’s be honest, I didn’t have much patience to start with, so it’s only gotten worse with pregnancy! I told Conrad that I asked God for more patience, but instead he gave me a patient husband. He thought that was a great big cop-out.

God was indeed faithful when he delivered you a husband who loves a clean kitchen! : )

I hope he delivers the same for me. I think there's going to be a lot of praying in my future!

Between our crazy work schedules, I hope we can get together soon. I miss you!

Hope you feel better soon -- I was so sick with Luke, the MD ended up giving me Zofran for the nausea! It was my best friend and helped so much!

Thank God for patient husbands -- where would we be without them!!!

So glad for a communication from you and so sorry that you are not feeling well along with all the travel. My prayer is that the nausea will not last long and that you will have a smooth, uneventful pregnancy. I really think you deserve one. Hope to see you guys soon.

I think your reasoning on patience was a great idea. I'm going to store that one away for later.

Hi D. Glad to hear you're not having to stop along the side of the road too often with this pregnancy. Urgh!
I thought I was patient until I married Mark. The Lord knew even laid back Rachel needed help!

Hey! So glad you are feeling at least a little better this time - I'll pray that it will pass in the next couple of weeks! Believe me, I know how you are feeling right now, and your blog makes me feel like its okay to be a little inadequate for awhile, so thanks!
Love ya!
