Guess it’s time to come clean huh? The reason I haven’t been very active with the blog lately (with the exception of Food Waste Friday’s) is due to the fact that life has thrown me quite the curve ball and I’m still trying to adjust and learn as we move forward.  If you recall, back in July of 2013 our family expanded with the addition of our new puppy.    Then in September, the hubster and I discovered that our family was going to be expanding again. That’s right folks, guess who’s preggo? 🙂

Fast forward to today – I’m feeling much more comfortable sharing this news after having survived the first trimester and am nearing the end of the second.  Everything is good to go.  Both mommy & baby to be are healthy.  Our baby boy is due to make his grand entrance into our world sometime in May 2014.    I have totally been suffering from a severe case of ‘mommy brain’.  You know, having the complete ability and ease of forgetting everything and anything you were just told or thought of two seconds ago.  Nothing like being in the middle of a task and forgetting why you walked into another room or opened a drawer/cupboard. Or basic words and names of things. Constantly.
Between dealing with ‘mommy brain’, the pup (who is now 9 months old – stands at 34″ inches tall to his back and weighs about 135lbs and is still growing) and trying to wrangle dad (who’s trying to be more independent now that I’m pregnant) I’m surviving.  Actually that is the best way to describe my current situation: surviving. I know I’m not the only one to have ever gone through all these changes at once nor will I be the last but I’m surviving. 🙂  Everything seems to be a first for myself and the hubster.

So that’s what’s been happening with me lately.  🙂
