Tuesday's update for my Monday trinket

So, my husband is still on the weekly, trinket gift kick. Its pretty funny. Yesterday he did the whole 8 Maids-a-milking rhyme and I got a BREAST PUMP. Totally practical at this point in time. More importantly, it made me laugh. :)

Mojo Monday #90

I came across this very FUN blog for paper-crafters/card makers. Mojo Monday! Basically, they put a sketch online every Monday for a card and people take the sketch and make it their own. This week is sketch #90 and I decided to give it a shot. I was trying to "think outside the box" as best I could. I made a net from embroidery floss in place of a triangular piece of paper. I think the card turned out well for my first attempt at (a) making a net from floss and (b) making a card from a sketch with no measurements.

I used all Close to My Heart products. The most fun was getting to use my brand new blending pen to make the "Twighlight" stamped fish into a Rainbow Trout and then using clear embossing powder to make it look wet. This is the April Stamp of the Month - World's Best Dad! It's fitting since the big day is just around the corner!

Breathing should be easier

I don't remember being so short of breath with either of my other pregnancies. I remember babies sitting up near rib cage and being uncomfortable but, nothing like this. I can't fill my lungs. I feel light headed and short of breath alot. I notice it most when I eat something, anything, in any amount. Its odd. Makes me feel tired all the time.

On the flip side, that is my only complaint this time around. I only have reflux if I allow myself to get "hungry". I am sleeping fine, except for the peeing 100 times a night (which is a given!). No back pain.....YET! I am not as heavy, thank goodness.

So, I guess as long as the docs aren't concerned about my shortness of breath, I shouldn't be either.

Its Monday

Today is Monday. Since my birthday, 3 weeks ago, I have found little gifts around the house for me, from my husband. He has gotten into the habit of setting up a trinket gift and a little "poem" (sort of) for me. Our baby is due on a Monday and I am getting to sense these trinket gifts will go until then! Its fun. But today, there was no trinket. It thew me for a loop. Until I got a call at the office from hubby telling me to check under the front seat of my car. Thank goodness it wasn't something edible because it would have stunk up the car before I EVER discovered it through all the half-colored kid menus, empty food containers, sweaters, shoes, basic-crap, etc., I usually have in the car. Today I got a silly dashboard hula dancer that my girlies think is the greatest thing ever! It makes me smile!

Blog facelift

I am messing around with updating my blog. I was getting tired of it being pink. Blue looks less obtrusive to the eyes, in my opinion. I am also trying to figure out how to add more than one photo to the "profile" section. So, bear with me!
