Energy reserves gone

Well, the good news is that it looks like we're going to have another baby - it's still early days yet so I hesitate to get too optimistic until we're past 12 weeks. I'm posting this, though, to explain why my blogging and jewelry making have taken a nosedive. Without my medication to manage my sleep disorder, I have no extra energy. My days are right now devoted to playing with my son and getting just a few other items done. All orders at my Etsy shop are still filled in 48 hours (usually 24) and I can do custom orders, but I'm not aggressively working to get new product out at this time. It just isn't feasible right now.

More details on the pregnancy will come later - though realize I won't be revealing a ton of them. I consider my family life personal and don't share much on the internet. If you know me, feel free to email me, but please understand that I tend to keep mum on things like due dates, etc. I know people mean well, but when I have to spend half my day lying on the couch (pregnancy itself is exhausting, on top of the sleep deprivation), a dozen emails near the due date asking if I've delivered yet are just too overwhelming.

Otherwise, things are going well. Since it's took me so long to get pregnant with my son, I'm overjoyed that I seem to be able to do it again without medical help. Over the rest of this year I'll probably be pretty subdued on my blog and elsewhere. It isn't because I'm avoiding you. I'm just pushing my body to its limits right now.

Meanwhile I've gotten my novel queries out to eight agents and gotten three rejections and still just the one request for pages. I hope to get more queries out this weekend!

    I couldn't be happier for you! What great news. Congratulations!!

  2. Awesome! Grats!!

  3. Congratulations, and I hope your energy levels rise soon!

  4. Thanks, guys! My energy levels will continue to dwindle for the duration of the pregnancy. That's how it goes with my sleep disorder; means I may get real quiet on my blog at times. But I should be back once baby is here and I can go back on my meds!
