Your typical pregnant, Pagan summer

I've finally emerged from the exhaustion and nausea that accompanied my first trimester. It feels so good to be able to stay awake after work, do things on the weekends, and even enjoy a meal! The last few weekends have been lovely idylls with Adonis--the farmers' market, brunches with friends, swimming in the gorges, going to the movies, Saturday night picnics and outdoor concerts. We've also begun packing our apartment; movers are scheduled to come in three weeks to move us into our new house. I'm glad we're enjoying the beautiful summer, even with all the change swirling around us.

I've been reading Kim Antieau's novels and, on Joanna's suggestion, I've begun reading Charles de Lint. Adonis and I have become big fans of "Mad Men," and I was delighted to find a couple of familiar Witches keeping an obsessive blog about the show. And of course, we're watching and rewatching Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (fan blog here). Aren't you?

Great blog. Very interesting.

I'm glad you're feeling better. We can relate, as my wife is about 13 weeks pregnant with our fourth child. Her energy is slowly starting to pick up a little, but the first trimester did take a lot out of her.

Good luck on your move. Moving while pregnant is a very big ordeal. May the Gods give you strength through it.

Thanks, Rev. Apollo! And congratulations on #4! I don't think Adonis and I will make it that far; we're getting a late start. Adonis is already talking about #2, but I'm like, "don't talk to a pregnant woman about the next kid."

We're feeling surprisingly calm about all the changes. A wise friend said to me this morning when I told her that, "it must mean they're the right changes."

Questions: thanks for the compliment and for stopping by!
