I have mojo for scrappin'.....but....

I cannot scrap! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! Can you tell I'm not happy about that? We've had another crazy week around here. My stepmom went home to Switzerland on Friday. What a help she was to have here for the last two months! Whew! Helping me lift little J and tote him around. It's nice to be able to get out and not be completely exhausted from lifting your 2 year old all over the place!

Who knew that the Friday she left, things would get really crazy! When we were pregnant with little J, he showed up 2 weeks early, because I had a slow leak of amniotic fluid. At first, I didn't even suspect that it was that, but when I called my OB, she had be go in to have it checked out. The nurse we saw didn't think it was fluid either, but ran the test. 20 minutes later she came back and told me they were going to start inducing me, because it was indeed my amniotic fluid leaking. Fast forward to Friday, I was standing in Starbucks getting my treat for the day otherwise known as my daily fix (decafinated of course!). I felt a familiar feeling. This time it worried me, because I am only 31 weeks pregnant. I went home to let G know, and then headed for the hospital to get it checked, while he stayed home with little J. They hooked me up to the monitor and ran the test to see if it was my fluid, thankfully, it was not amniotic fluid, but as they were monitoring me, the saw that I was having contractions every 2 minutes!!!! OY! This little girl is giving me a run for my money. They gave me some medication to stop the contractions and kept me there for observation for about 2 hours total. When they released me they put me on more of the medication to keep taking until I see my regular OB. This stuff makes me feel crazy!!! At first I was taking it every 4 hours, and not only did I get a headache and have tremors, but I felt so anxious! When I called the on-call doctor the next day, he had me start taking it every 6 hours. This was better, but still get the headaches and the crazy tremors! Needless to say, this is why I can't scrap! I'd probably cut my finger off with the paper trimmer! Sigh! This little girl made me miss out on a night of scrappin' with my friends too! Well, anyway that's all for now, hopefully, the doctor will let me off this medicine tomorrow and I can get back to scrappin'! I have so many crazy ideas in my head that I want to get on to cardstock!

So many other good things to share, but you'll just have to stay tuned for them!
