Empty Nest Syndrome

I have been sooooo sick for the past 2 weeks. It seems to get worse daily -- and having three ages 5 and under does not help (have I said that before?). I've definitely been having a many pity parties lately and lots of thoughts like "what were we thinking? I've really lost my mind! I'm going to die before this baby is born. ETC." Anyway, this truly is the worst morning sickness I've had.
So . . . my mom volunteered to come get Lenna today and I offered "why not take all of them?" Surprisingly, she accepted the dare and came to pick them up late this afternoon. When I came home to my empty house I was in tears (very normal for me right now.) It feels so strange here without them. I started to feel guilty for lying on the couch all day and not playing with them, for fussing, for losing my patience, etc. I really miss them.
Amazingly, however my sickness has been completely gone for about 2 hours now. It really makes me wonder. I actually cleaned the boys' room, Lenna's room and the kitchen. This is an amazing feat compared to my nonexistent housekeeping over the past week. So, I'm using the extra energy to write on my blog and ask for your prayers that I will feel good enough to get Isaiah's homeschooling finished (I only have 8 lessons left). Please, pray that I will have patience with my precious little ones and remember how amazing they are (when they are actually here, not miles away).
Here comes the nausea. I'm off!!!!

Big News!

Well . . . we're expecting Baby #4! The whole family is VERY excited. Palmer was so excited he told his Mother's Morning Out class. We were planning on keeping it a secret just a little a longer, but that's what we get for asking a 3 year old to keep such a fun secret.
At least now I can openly complain about how horrible I feel. I'm counting down the weeks until this terrible stage is over. However, I was very blessed this week to have both of my sisters-in-law keep my children for me for a few hours. Thank you Emily and Brooke :)
Well, that's about all that's going on around here right now. I'll try to post some pics soon!
