Coping with Nausea

My family has been so fabulous about my constant state of nausea. I'm 98% unaffected if I'm lying down, however, once I am vertical, I'm not much fun. I don't throw up much--mostly, because I'm far too stubborn to let myself throw up. There are very few things in this life that I've lived that I dislike greater than throwing up-but it's like #3 on my top most hated things. Mostly, I make it a point to whine every minute or two about how gross I feel, then state what a blessing it is, because if I'm still sick, then the baby is growing.
SARAH JO IS BAAAAAAAAACK. Summer semester at the Y of I is out, and thus my sister Sa-J returns to our home for a visit. She'll be with us until next Friday and then she's headed back to PA for a 5 week stint. She watched Ava last night so Chris and I could have a date. Then, she cleaned my living room and kitchen today. AMAZING! She's a power house man. It takes me a good 40 minutes to get my kitchen in the condition she gets it in 10. I've never seen anything like it.
Today, we were in charge of sharing time in primary. It was a disaster. The kids were all riled up, despite everyone's attempts to get them to be reverent. I thought that handing out suckers prior to the activity would keep their mouths busy-creating a teaching environment, and that back fired INSANELY. I got through it though, picked up a very tired Ava and headed home--leaving Chris to handle the 10 kid class time himself. What a hero he is! Ava passed out about 2 minutes after we got home. Sa-J picked up Chris from church for me so that I could stay down for a bit.
We headed out to Hooper about 6:30, where we enjoyed dad's homemade rosemary bread, dipped in Balsamic Vinegar from Greece, and oil. It was nothing short of fabulous. Then, we made Ghiridelli triple chocolate brownies--which were....more incredible than that sounds. Scott, Min and the boys came out--Davis spent a good hour doing everything to make Ava laugh. I am pretty sure that he's quite possibly her favorite kid to be around. Caydon convinced Min, Sandi, Sa-J and I to play a round of Apples to Apples--we played to 8 green cards. I won!! It was a lot of fun.
About 10 pm we all headed home. I love family Sundays--whether it's in Hooper with Chris's family-or in West Jordan with mine, there's something fun and comforting about them. Suddenly I want Spaghetti. But I only have spicy sauce, and that could be a very bad idea at this late hour.
On the task for tomorrow--lending baby car seat to Joye, for Jade's baby. OH YES! Jade, Mark and baby Chloe are in town from DC and this weekend they are doing her blessing. NOTE TO SELF--START CALLING FOR SUBS MONDAY!!! ok good now I won't forget. Also, finish laundry, and other stuff I can't remember.

Hey! I just found your blog through Cami's. I had no idea you were pregnant. Congratulations! However, I'm so sorry for the sickness. Yuck!

We'd love to have Ava over to play. Ella gets a little bored and stir crazy sometimes. When you need a break/nap, please call me! Ella would love to have a friend to play with.
