The Journey Begins

I made the leap. Today was my first day as a stay at home wife and mom to be. My little jumper has yet to make her arrival on the scene. For months I have been reading various blogs and exploring websites, trying to get a handle on what it means to be a "sahm". What I did not count on was the urge to simply sit and veg-out ( and I don't mean eating lots of leafy greens). Sure I tidied, and did laundry, but mostly I surfed the web and played solitaire. Yeah that is going to get really old really fast, so I guess I need to put what I have been learning into practice. First things first: Get Organized!

I will be the first to admit that I am not organized at all. There is something within me that rebels at the very notion of constant organization. (I am so the opposite of the hubby -- he has spreadsheets for everything).

If any of you out there in blog land have suggestions, I am Listening!

This is my first blog post. Ever. I am not sure what this blog will evolve into, if anything. For now I want to concentrate on faith, family, marriage, homemaking, books, writing, and other little things. I will try not to be political, but I can't make any promises.

I am seven months along with our first child. I have been recently diagnosed with  gestational diabetes. I have gone from eating whatever my preggo body craves to a severely restricted diet and checking my blood sugar several times a day. Ouch! My poor little fingers are so sore! For those of you who live with and manage type 1 and type 2 diabetes: I have a new level of respect!

I will be making the transition to stay at home wife and mother later this month. I am scared! Whatever am I going to do with myself all day?

oops! I must scoot time to measure my blood sugar!
