But, since we aren't there quite yet, I'm happy to report that I'm feeling MUCH better. Yay for less nausea and less utter exhaustion. Don't get me wrong, I could still sleep/nap the entire day, but I don't feel like I'm going to fall asleep at the first red light on the way home. Even though my nausea has reduced tremendously, I still find myself drawn to salty and savory over sweet. Although I can enjoy limited sweets now without wanting to hurl, they just aren't as tasty.

While she's away, Mike and I will have a chance to go through the office and begin converting it into the nursery. At the same time, we may even be able to get a good
For now, I'm going to continue enjoying our unusually cool weather (low to mid 80's with low humidity) for another day or so before we are smacked in the face with the true NC reality... 90's with high humidity.
