Well folks, I realize I have been completely MIA for the past month. And for that, I really can't apologize. It has absolutely EVERYTHING to do with the fact that I have been spending the majority of my days either beside the toilet, or in bed fast fast asleep. Being pregnant has been no easy thing here in the Miller House.:) Yes - I'm HAVING A BABY!!!!!! It has been the most wonderful and traumatic 10 weeks of my life for quite some time due to how incredibly sick I've been. It's been pretty miserable. After throwing up 7 times in one day, I caved and called the doctor for some medicine, which is helping a bit. I'm still extremely exhausted and want absolutely nothing to do with any sort of meat, but I am praying that in the upcoming weeks it will slowly subside.

And because of that, I have either done VERY little thrift store shopping or just have had no energy at all to look cute, post pictures and talk about it. My productivity has decreased tenfold, which has been pretty difficult to deal with as an over-productive busybody like myself who needs to always be doing something. Resting is NOT my forte.

Below are pictures that have NOTHING to do with this blog, except for our poor poor very well used, well loved Honda Accord was treated very badly by the tornado that hit Oklahoma this past Monday. Eric was and still is out of town for a couple weeks, and had his car with him, but this car was sitting in the driveway when hail, the size of softballs came flying from the sky. I'm not going to lie, I was CRACKING UP while it was happening. I couldn't help it!! I was standing in my neighbors garage, ready to hop into the storm shelter if needed, watching the storm with several others, when the hail came. And if you've never seen softballs and baseballs fall from the sky, ITS COMPLETELY INSANE. It was just so absurd!!!! I watched my car windows shattered, and the street lamps break and fall to the street, and these balls of ice just smash into bits as they hit the pavement. I just stood there LAUGHING at the craziness of it all. Not a normal reaction, I know, but what was I going to do??? Run across the cul-de-sac and lay on top of my windshield so it wouldn't break??? DUDE - I would have died. The next best thing was to laugh. So laugh I did.:)

And after it was all done, I ran inside to get my camera so I could document. Here are the pictures of the craziness.
I'm not promising that I'm back up in running like normal - I'm still puking and taking 3 hr naps when I get home from work, but I wanted to break my silence and share our good news (the baby) and our bad news, which will hopefully soon turn into good news (the car, which will hopefully be a new car soon).

I love you all and treasure the fact that you if you read this, you are a true follower. Thank you for being patient with me and not yelling at me to come back.;) I have missed you.
