How Pregnant Am I

The classic Belly Resting on the Counter shot. Nice.

Ok, Ok, turning off computer now.

The Back Aching Has Started

I know I am nearing the end of my pregnancy when the body pain starts. Up til now I've felt really good. Other than some shooting pains in the front and back of my legs occasionally (esp. after sitting for a long time) there has been nothing. I sleep pretty well. (I feel like I need to whisper this - but - I don't even wake up in the night to pee... well, maybe only once.) Not even one real leg cramp the whole time.

I'm due on Feb 15. I'm pretty sure I'll go til then or after. I feel way too good right now. The back ache is due to sitting for three hours at my computer last night. Yeah, Duh. I'm shutting down already...

The Team January 2009

This is what I would call a cheap post. One where I really don't have to put much thought or effort but I'm feeling guilty about not posting so I post something.

Here is the Team - US and Indian from earlier this month. They brought T shirts. Can you tell?

India Wow

I take no credit for this beautiful picture taken while we were in Rajasthan at the beginning of the month. Eric - wow, what a picture.

Rajasthan Team

The US team and the members of our staff who went to Rajasthan with them earlier this month.
Me, on right, looking very very pregnant - should NEVER wear white!

Uploading Christmas

We finally got the beautiful pictures from our December 22nd Christmas program yesterday. Since then I've been trying to get them up here but they are TOO BIG. I either need to figure out how to shrink them (don't hold your breath) or I'll have to scan the originals.

Either way, they will be posted.

The nice thing about having teams come is that there are whole bunches of people taking pictures of things that you would never otherwise takes pictures of. Like this shot.

There are just no words.

How To Fill A Pez

... at Karuna Children's Home.

Cute Karuna Kids

The team from the USA visited our Children's Home several times. The kids all got T Shirts and loads of gifts and candy.

Cute group photo in shirts.


I snagged these pics off my niece's Facebook. She was here with the team earlier this month.

Our Two Left Feet

Before writing this post, I'd just like to clear a few things.

1. This is my personal blog. Not a ministry blog, although it has ministry stuff in it. You'll have to sort through if that is all you are looking for.

2. I reached a new level of laziness. I actually used my cell phone to call down to our house (land line) phone last night instead of getting out of bed. This is possibly due to laziness or maybe just the late state of pregnancy and the effort it takes to get in and out of bed, as well as the tiredness that is with me always. Also, possibly due to my bad ankle which I will write about ... now.

O. and both have bad left feet. Almost 2 weeks ago I tripped down a step and twisted my ankle. It's still swollen, my OBGYN told me not to go to the bone Dr. (aka, her brother-in-law) down the hall from her at the hospital. She said he'd give me heavy doses of medicine I couldn't take anyway. She gave me three days worth of some light swelling reducing medicine which was the worst medicine I have ever taken in my life and told me to keep my foot elevated for 2 days. HA!

I did take the medicine and suffered from a burning stomach and vomity sensation (I should have taken it with milk like she said - I learned that lesson by the 3rd day). But the foot is not elevated. Elevate my foot for 2 whole days - I don't even sit down.

Anyway, O. also has a bad foot. He has a corn or a wart or some such thing on the bottom of his foot. It's been there for a month or so. He finally got dragged to the Dr. by his friend the other day and is under treatment. He informed me it was a "very serious problem." Well, it's contagious anyway. Whatever.

We're both limping around.

The Last - Uhh - Month

I am still around, my computer seems to be working again. I just tend to sleep or organize or cook nowadays when I have nothing else to do.

It's been an intense time since November. Getting the house ready to move in, the house opening, moving, CHRISTMAS, VBS, New Year's and a team from the USA. Not to mention I am a mother of 3 young children and 8 months pregnant*. Whew.

However, I've had a great time and wouldn't have it any other way. I'll sleep when I'm dead. You can put that on my tombstone.

* For those wondering, I am due on Feb 15.

**I promise - pictures, lots of them. Soon.

My goal was to make it through December to January 9th. Here I am - still breathing.
