I have been so busy these past two weeks. First it was the massive amount of church services that came out of seemingly no where. Add to that Lance's need to study obsessively for his Professional Engineering exam. Then Nina decided to be needy and hardly strayed farther than 6 inches from me for more than 30 seconds. It was really annoying.

So, in consequence, I have not been able to blog.

Still, I am doing well. My gallbladder surgery scars are nicely healed and my bellybutton looks ok -- pregnancy did not do it any favors. I ate some ice cream the other day because: 1) it was old, 2) it was taking up room in my freezer. No problems to report after eating it.

Yet, I continue to lose weight. I noticed the other day that my one working mammary gland is huge. It is seriously massive. So, this week I have made it my goal to eat a lot more food. With Nina's neediness and my need to get stuff done, I rarely have time to eat. I just have to make more of an effort to get some food in my system because obviously Nina has been needing more milk. Lance felt my arm the other day and said "we gotta put some meat on your bones."

No joke. Lance never makes comments about my weight, so it came as a bit of a surprise.

In the midst of all the church services, and Lance's crazy studying, and Nina's neediness, I am also trying to coordinate Holy Week/Pascha preparations for church and family including sewing some clothes for Nina. If I get to sew some clothes for myself, it would be a miracle.

I am beginning to fear that I will never get to rest. My time is never my own nowadays and I would frankly welcome going back to work -- I might be able to get some rest then! I am applying for three jobs that I would really love to get, but only God and the people hiring know if I will get it.

So, all is well. I have first-world problems and I shouldn't complain.
