Crazy Times, in exponential form

I haven't been on here in ages. Sofia dragged me back briefly but things are just rather crazy in my neck of the woods. Back in December I had to go to SC and bring ds15 home. It has been a huge challenge getting him into school because of the differences between the district in SC and the one here in FL. We ended up doing virtual school so he's essentially home all the time, and now on the computer to do schoolwork. It makes for a situation of "overexposure to each other" which hasn't been pleasant at times. We're still looking to buy a house, but the right one hasn't presented itself. And now, this week, I've discovered that I'm pregnant with our fourth, very much a big surprise since our kids are 6, 14, & 15 now. I've been feeling rather green and bleh the past few days, and want nothing more than to spend all day in the bed. We also have only one bathroom and it's at the other end of the house from my room (the former garage). I'm not getting sick, just feeling very very very blah and constantly nauseated. Apparently I am not well suited to using iVillage's fertility tracker program to avoid a pregnancy, because somewhere I must have miscalculated. It was either that or my cycle got wonky with the stress surrounding ds15's return home. In any case, as we've been breaking the news to friends and family, we've received a variety of responses. Overall it's been a positive reaction from people, but I'm sure at some point we'll have someone ask "don't you know what causes that?" or say something judgemental about it etc. I have a few retorts handy just in case. So...there ya go. My update in a nutshell.
I did say it was Crazy Times, and exponential at that.
