One on the Way (Cindy wrote this)

You may have noticed from the last post, if you didn't know already, we are going to have a baby. What a different experience! Today is the first morning in a week that I haven't been nauseaus as soon as i woke up. Don't know why, but I don't mind. We are guessing we are about 7 weeks along but we won't know for sure until our first doctors appointment Jan. 5. I'm very excited about that because even after 4 positive pregnancy tests, and all the symptoms, it still doesn't seem real. I still keep thinking, these could be symptoms of something else. It's possible. So, the ultrasound will help. They will have to do an ultra sound to know for sure how far along we are and when we are due. That will be nice.
It's so exciting to think that by this time next year, we'll have a sweet little baby to share Christmas with. It's still very surreal.
Hope everyone had a Wonderful Christmas. We are still on our vacation. We just got back to Vancouver to be with Chris' parents after being in McKinleyville with my parents for a few days. It was nice being home again. Especially since I felt the sickest I have yet the week I was there. It was nice to be able to just relax. I loved it. I wish we would have had the chance to visit some people, but I never felt up to it. It was good being able to see a lot of old friends at church though. I wish we could just live in the same neighborhood with all of our family and friends we have ever had. That'd make it convenient. Then we wouldn't have to make more friends either. :) Well, I'm starting to feel yucky again so I'm going to go eat something now.

On the Road Again (Cindy wrote this)

We're on our way, home for the holidays. Our wonderful vacation started yesterday. The morning was rather crazy. We were trying to finish all of our last minute errands, pack and pickup the house before we ran out the door at two. Chris was a great help. He did pretty much everything, while I was laying down, sicker than a dog. The nausea that often comes with pregnancy, had been peeking it's ugly head every so often, usually when I was hungry or full. Yesterday morning however, it came out to play. I was extremely nauseas, to the extent where I knew if I moved I would barf. Really weird. I hate that feeling. Thankfully it eased up by the time we needed to catch our flight. Sam, Chris' brother is always so nice to take us to the airport. Thanks again Sam. Hope your finals are going well.
The airport and flight was rather uneventful. You know what, I'm not feeling so great, and I don't want to write anymore.

The Wonderful World of the Blogs (Cindy wrote this)

Well, I've finally done it. Chris is usually always a little ahead of what's popular in technology, while I, on the other hand, am usually just a little behind. I think the credit belongs to my parents. I was raised in a town where "horses have the right of way", and we were the last people in the entire town to get a microwave, cable, and an answering machine. We never had the internet, and rarely even a working computer in the home. So, needless to say, my husband usually is the one keeping us up to date. I'm so grateful to that. My job is to keep us active, and social. I haven't been doing as good at that as I could be, that's for sure, so today I am using technology to try and remedy our lack of interaction with all of our wonderful friends and family.
I have always loved being social and active, but after we were married, I guess I was so content just spending time with Chris, that I let my social life fall by the wayside. Now after being married for almost a year an a half, I am willing to admit that I have a problem. The next step is changing. We'll see how that goes.

I will have to admit, this whole blog thing is exciting. What a great way to not only keep in touch, but really think out loud. It will be great just to "spew" all of my thoughts and goings on into cyberspace. I hope you are as excited as I am about this.

If you have any other ideas on how to get out of this anti-social abyss, please let me know. I could use all the help I can get.
