Oh, Holy Barf

I, like almost the rest of the entire world, am on Facebook.  And because of this, I often mentally dialogue my life in terms of status updates.  Not that I actually write them 95% of the time - but they cross my mind.

Maja Neilson Russell:  "Just changed the 10th diaper of the day and it's not even noon"

Maja Neilson Russell:  "Wants to know why I wash all the dishes before I put them in the dishwasher..."

Maja Neilson Russell:  "Got all the beds made today and think I am pretty awesome."

Maja Neilson Russell:  "Although as grateful as I am that Paul got in, I periodically think med school is for the birds."


You get the idea.

But there has only been ONE status update that has been on my mind for the last 6 weeks:

Maja Neilson Russell:  "Oh, Holy Barf."

Not that anyone has been doing it a lot around here, it is just all I want to do.  Every. Single. Minute. Of. The. Day.

So yes.  That is exactly what all of you are immediately wondering and WHY I couldn't put that as a Facebook status.

Russell #5 appearing early March 2011.

And while I am excited and scared to death, all I can really think about is Oh, Holy Barf.

Hey Congrats!! Is this why I didn't see you this summer? Except when I saw you on TV that is...

And I'll admit, I'm jealous that you can have so many kids and still be so SKINNY!!!!

Woo-hoo! Congratulations! When I saw that you had a new post, I thought "I wonder if she is pregnant and announcing it on her blog?" Hope you stop feeling like barfing all the time soon. I can't imagine that would be any fun.

Amen, sister. I just finished barfing 5 weeks ago, and it's amazing how quickly I've forgotten the joys. :) You deserve mom of the year... not to mention that I saw your beautiful face on television!

Although I am thrilled (like over-joyed and over-the-moon!) about the pregnancy I am disappointed that you still wash your dishes- I thought we overcame that one!
