Actually it was early this morning. I woke up at about 5:15 AM this morning because of a nose bleed. (I get those every once in a while, due to severe allergies) It bled off and on for nearly a solid hour. I know, you're suppposed to go to the hospital after 20 or 30 minutes of bleeding, but whatever. I'm fine now, and I didn't lose that much blood. (I've had way worse) But let me tell you, waking up from a dead sleep with a bloody nose, is the WORST way to wake up. It's so hard to concentrate on stopping it when you're falling asleep! Anyway, I got it to stop with out flipping out and went back to bed. I layed in bed for nearly 45 more minutes before I could fall asleep. For some crazy reason, I was so freakin' cold. So I put on socks and an afghan over the covers. Still cold. I went and got a fleece blanket and covered myself with that as well, and was finally able to fall asleep. So weird. Needless to say, I slept in quite late this morning, until 10 AM in fact.
Now to change the subject. I have several exciting and semi-exciting things to share with you.
1. So, by now, I'm pretty sure that you guys all know that I'm pregnant. My due date is April 10th. It turns out that I'm not the only one pregnant. My sister and brother-in-law, Jeanette and Aaron also just happen to be pregnant. And their baby is due April 1st!! How exciting is that? Total coincidence. Neither of us knew that the other was pregnant until a couple of weeks ago. My parents are way elated to be getting their first two grandchildren only weeks apart. How fun.
2. I am now 9 weeks pregnant, and working my way into the last month of my first trimester! Woo Hoo! I'm so eager to get out of my first trimester. I hear the second one is way better, and you feel way better too. As much as I love napping (which I do) I'd really like to NOT have to take a nap every afternoon any more - keeps you from getting much accomplished.
3. I recently did something that I promised myself I would do about 5 or 6 months ago. I have enrolled into the New York Institute of Photography! I'm very proud of myself. What I love is that with each course that you take, you have up to three years to finish - which is totally what I need right now since I have a baby on the way, but hopefully I'll be able to at least finish the first one before the baby is born.
4. Joel has officially been accepted into the smart people's club, which ironically is called, MENSA. (Which in spanish means stupid, but in Latin means something smart) Ha ha. He had to take an IQ test and score high. He did. Being a part of this group is supposed to look great on resumes.
