Today I Changed My Tagline

I'm wondering if you caught that very small change- a letter that makes the world of difference in meaning.  Did you catch it?  Probably not.  I don't have a lot of followers.  I'm not sure who really pays attention to what I write, but I'm excited for the changes.

Well, let me start with a little background info.  This summer I was the worst homeschool parent ever.  I was too involved with my own endeavors- my own education- my own interests.  I pray to God that I did no damage to my child.  She's enjoyed every second of freedom.  She's enjoyed every Disney Chanel show, every independent art project, every chance to ride her bicycle inside the house, every crafty outfit whether for herself or her dolls, every computer game, every LPS youtube show- she's enjoyed freedom.

So as I'm getting ready to get in gear for the school year, I began to experience significant fatigue and sickness. I hadn't been eating well, so I attributed the sickness to that, but when it persisted I couldn't help but think about all the deadly things it could be.  I went and got vitamins with iron. That helped a bit, but still, something didn't feel quite right.  Ginseng comes next. A little better, but still not out of the woods.  So after about a week and a half of the bed, as I was getting ready to to set myself a doctor's appointment, I decided that a pregnancy test was in order.  Just the month before, it said no.  I assumed this result would be no different.  To the contrary, it was. I was excited, and left the test on the top of the counter so that my husband would see it when he went to the bathroom. I left it on top of the visual test explanations.

Men!!!!  As he went to wash his hands, he noticed. He asked what it was, and then asked was I pregnant.  Me- "You didn't see the visual clues right there."

Him- "Just tell me."

Me- "It says we're pregnant."

Him- "Congratulations. Good night." And off to sleep he went.

Thinking that there was some kind of mix up, I believed myself to be about 10 or 11 weeks pregnant.  In the clinic they show me two lines, but one is very faint.  This leads the nurse to believe in my timeline.  She thinks the line might be faint because I was a little further along.  Here comes the ultrasound. "Oh, it looks like you're only 7 weeks pregnant."

Oh, was I upset, disappointed, etc. You mean to tell me that I start getting sick at 5 weeks and that I have another possible 7 weeks of sickness?

But since then, I've had a chance to put on my rejoicing shoes.  It's only been a week, but I am happy to change my tagline from "Beecause my busy bee keeps growing..." to "Beecause my busy bees keep growing... BeeYond ABC."

Yes, it's early, and I know many things could happen. My husband and I are both older (he, more so than I), but we are prayerful that things will work out.  Please send whatever prayers, positive energy, affirmations, or whatever it is that you do as long as it's short of devil worship.

Thankful for my busy bees.
