+ we haven't been doing too much around here these days. i'm still not feeling all that great, so we keep outings short, especially since the roads around here make me quite nauseous, even if i am the one driving.
+ baby bump pictures will be coming shortly. a couple weeks ago you could actually start to tell i was pregnant, now there's no denying it. there's definitely a baby in there :)
+ january 24th is a big day in the dumas house. it's the day of the big ultrasound...the one where they do a bajillion different measurements to make sure everything is growing as it should. oh it also happens to be the one where they can usually tell if baby is a boy or girl. i used to not so secretly want only boys...but i really just don't care anymore. boy or girl is fine with me!
+ i am seriously missing cooking. i love planning out the meals for the week and grocery shopping. since moving and being pregnant, i've not done that once. part of this is because we are 30 minutes from the closest grocery store, but the other part is that it is rather hard to plan a menu when nothing sounds appealing to me besides eggo waffles with peanut butter and granola bars.
+ we're about to hit tax season, in fact, next week is the first full week of six day work weeks. i'm already counting down the days until one of my favorite days of the year: april 15.
+ usually tax season starts a week earlier, which is a bummer, because the pigeon cove chapel retreat usually falls on the first weekend of tax season. but not this year! we're off to NH this weekend to spend time with our pcc family. we're excited!
+ i was in massachusetts last week for work. it was nice to be there, especially since two friends got engaged and i was able to hug and congratulate everyone in person...yay :) i also got my fill of hugs that'll last me to this weekend. not having many friends in vt means a serious lack of hugs in my life. not okay.
+ and i'll leave you with this last bullet point (aren't bulleted lists the best??) one of my goals this year is to learn how to use my camera properly before baby comes along. i started playing with shutter speed and i'm working on learning other things. here's a couple shots:
