Checking in with BIG news!

Hi everyone! Just checking in briefly. We're getting ready to go on our camping trip this weekend and I hope to relax and do some drawing there.

It has been difficult to get to the studio recently. A big reason is now visible in my sidebar - we're expecting baby #4 due March 20. SURPRISE! That was probably my 4th choice of sidebar widget, but I couldn't get any of my favorites to work properly.

Anyway, one of the early pregnancy side effects I always have is extreme sleepiness. I feel OK first thing in the morning, but quickly hit a wall and have to lay down. I'm taking advantage of that while I can, before the school year gets underway.

I don't get morning sickness too bad - just a little queasiness and have to keep eating little snacks to feel better. Drawing has been a bit of a problem - something about being so focused close up and the motion of my hand. It's kind of like reading in a moving car. I guess that explains why my last drawing made me nauseous.

Of course, this might change the timeline as far as an illustration career goes. We'll see how it all unfolds!

Now! that explains the nausea from your other post! Ha! Well, rest up and relax, you have a few more months ahead before the little one arrives!

Oh My Gosh!!!!!! Congratulations! That is so you know why you were "icky sicky". I was just chuckling at the pics of the kids and your beast camping, and then I scrolled down to see this post. I am so happy for you.

Now if only I could get my act together. I want a baby, too! What a blessing.

Thanks for the good wishes. Hopefully, I'll soon be beyond the "yuck" stage.
