Missing in Action

So i haven't fallen off the face of the earth........yet. When that happens it will be either through the rapture or death, and either way, i won't be back. Nor will i wish to be. :)

There IS a reason for my absence.


I'm 8 weeks pregnant and struggling through first trimester morning/all day sickness. Not fun but as that famous song went, "I will survive..."

We are very excited, and the children are hoping we'll reach number 16 yet before my body officially gives up on child bearing. They have figured out that if most women are finished by the age of 45, (yes, we've had the whole menopause conversation...in an abbreviated version) that means i have another 10 years yet, and if i have a baby every year.............they have forgotten to figure in God, daddy and last but most definitely not least, mamma. :) It's good to know God is in control.
