If you haven't noticed, I haven't been around much. This week (and last) has been full of (you guessed it) busyness!
On the 4th of July we went to one of our church family's home for an Independence Day Celebration. Unfortunately it rained from dinnertime on.
Thursday I went to get some bloodwork done...I am still anemic. So, I am taking 2 T of liquid chlorophyll, barley green powder in a mangosteen juice, 2 T blackstrap molasses before bed, Ester-C, pregnancy tea with extra alfalfa & nettle and today I ordered more stuff to take. Mainly more liquid chlorophyll, liquid B-Complex with iron, and Ester-C. I will get my hematocrit level up. I also learned of another iron booster and that is 1/2 cup grape juice with 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper; not only is this supposed to give you energy, but it is supposed to boost your iron levels in your blood. Interesting!
Sunday, we brought a meal to a family that just had a new baby. We visited for quite some so when we arrived home that evening I was quite exhausted.
Monday, I had an ultrasound. No, I didn't find out the gender of the baby, we were only checking out the anatomy. We wanted to make sure that the baby did not have any visible congenital defects because our state is cracking down on the lay midwives and I wanted to make sure baby was healthy enough to be born at home.
Tomorrow is my second youngest daughter's birthday. She will be four years old!!!
And on Thursday, my brother in law is coming back for a weekend visit.
So as you can imagine, I am feeling quite overwhelmed...I may be back next week, who knows? Summertime is always a busy time. Soon I will be picking cherry tomatoes from my garden. I can tell you already that I planted too many cherry tomato plants!!! Too bad I can't share the cherry tomatoes with you!
Anyway, there is my update! I hope to be back to normal blogging soon, but for now, this will just have to do!
