What happened to me? I got pregnant!
Getting pregnant has been a wonderful and exciting milestone, but it was accompanied by more than three solid months of feeling absolutely terrible. Apparently, I'm one of the minority who get awful "morning" sickness not only all the time, but for an extended period after the first trimester. I was barely able to turn my computer on some days, not to mention recording and editing any sort of videos.
I am beginning to feel much better, thank goodness. Work-wise, I'm focusing on getting orders filled and making sure our spring book, Maneki Neko, is as perfect as possible and at the printers. I hope to resume the Multicultural Minute videos soon, but we'll have to see how my health goes. The next time you see me, I'll be sporting a big belly, which I might just have to hide below the camera frame!
Thanks for your patience and understanding. More multicultural goodness will be forthcoming soon!
