Hot Hot Hot

Wow has it been hot! 93 with humidity today. So that means living in the pond and pulling weeds, swimming, raking the sand area. Michael had a friend over for the last 3 days so that was nice for him to keep busy and entertained. We dropped him off then ran to buy more stuff for the pond. I think we are set for toys this season and then some.
So the second 3 hour long glucose tests came back in the normal range this time so that was a nice relief. My next Dr. appt is this Thur morning. I now have moved up to having to go every 2 weeks. So that means I am getting closer to her little birthday YIPPIE. I do still have a lot I want to do before she comes but am sure getting to the point where her coming a little early would be nice too. LOL
Thats about it not much to chat about I guess........

Doctors appointments and more.....

Well today I had my glucose test to check for gestational diabetes. They also checked to see if I was anemic and I am needing more iron but that was not to bad yet. However, guess the first glucose test showed I was elevated so that means I get to go back tomorrow morning for a 3 hour test! UGH They told me I could bring my laptop, or a book or people watch but I should stay seated as much as possible in between all the times I have to have my blood drawn. Which is 4 times OUCH! Hopefully I will pass tomorrow and not have to worry about it but if not that means off to see a dietitian to tell me what I need to know to about what I am allowed to eat and drink etc.....oh fun!

She is a little mover in there and we heard her little fast heartbeat at 160 again which is always music to me ears. I am also to the stage where I need to go to appointments every 2 weeks now. Who knows if that will increase if I do in fact have Gestational Diabetes guess I will find out more tomorrow.

Well Michael is officially had his last day of 5th grade and is off for summer vacation. His dad and him are building a outside wood fort to play in so far looking like a lot of fun. He is wanting to see the 3D movie UP that's out and well that sounds good to me so will have to see how Dads schedule looks like and do a 3 musketeer date night soon:) Of too pick up the house sure I will come back sometime tomorrow to fill in on the new results of the tests.

My First Paper Bag Album

So I made my first paper bag album for a friends baby shower and I am so happy to report both mommy and daddy love it! Also, one of her guests wanted to get a closer look and just loved it and asked if I had my own website!!!!! OMG that alone made my day but what mattered most was the babies parents loved it.

It has got me thinking that maybe I finally should get more serious and start scrapping more. Fill up my Etsy store and see how I do. Ebay and auctivia have just become so greedy that I am not sure if I want to stick with them anyways......so maybe soon I will have a site of my own. hmmmmm here a few pictures of the album. They didn't find out the sex so it had to be a neutral theme.....

Track Day

My son had his school class track day.He raced in the 600 dash the 800 dash and did the high jump. When he came home a few weeks and told me what he was participating well I was quite nervous for him. See I was in Track and Field for a few years and well I know I have a very hard time running long distance and to me that is anything over 400 dash.Well anyways he proved my worries were for nothing the kid jumped pretty good for not being tall and he actually WON the 600 dash. He did pretty well in the 800 too considering he was pretty tired still from the 600 he gave it his all and he is so excited to get those ribbons. Watching my friends daughter run her races was fun too she did great too. Can not believe they are growing up so fast. I still remember crying at his first day of school.......his first school play.......but watching him race today shows me what a strong boy he is becoming.I also watched at how polite he and my friends daughter are. That made both of us beam proud at them. Overall what a fun day hanging out with my friend watching our kids have fun too:)
