A funny

My sister sent me the following email. Too funny since tick season has started here.

I only send these things when I know they are true. I checked it out on Snopes.Com.


This one is real, and it's important. So please send
this warning to
Everyone on your e- mail list.

If someone comes to your front door saying they are
checking for ticks due
To the warm weather and asks you to take your clothes
off and dance around
With your arms up, DO NOT DO IT!! THIS IS A SCAM!!
They only want to see you

I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid.

An illusion

Pregnancy has become tainted to me. Instead of joy and excitement, I feel nervous and scared. There was a time when all I saw was the joy in pregnancy. But I have seen too many friends have losses, read too many sad stories, experienced too much heartache, to think that everything will always be ok. I go to my ob appointments telling myself it will be ok if they don't find a heartbeat. I'm afraid to get my maternity clothes out of the attic because I would have to deal with them if something went wrong. What happened to the blissful denial of my last two pregnancies? Why did it seem so easy then? Was it all an illusion?

The best part of early pregnancy- the boobs!
For Mother's Day I requested a tent, sleeping bag, and water tote. We are planning on camping next weekend. I really hope the weather cooperates. I don't know who is more excited- me or the kids.
My sister has been in the hospital 12 days for a migraine. She has suffered with them since she was a young child. They can't get this one under control. I worry about her constantly, and I feel helpless. I've felt panic attacks creeping up.
I am planning on going to Nebraska to help out with the kids while my sister goes to a headache clinic in Michigan. At least it is something I can do. I don't know when yet. Hopefully details come soon.
My love and prayers go out to the Huntsman family. Bob passes away this week from a massive heart attack. He has suffered with health problems for a long time. He was a very kind man and will be greatly missed.
My goal today is to stamp some cards. I'm not doing so well at it. I think I'm coming down with something or having a blah day. I don't know which. I just don't want to puke. I've already fallen asleep twice on the couch. Do you think anyone would notice if I laid down again?
I did manage to Miracle Grow our little garden today. So far it's been doing well. We've gotten rain almost everyday this week which means less watering. I should post a picture.
I wish I wasn't such a procrastinator.

Congratulations Graduate

Olivia graduated from the 4 year old HIPPY program yesterday. I'm actually glad that it is over. I just wasn't impressed with the program this year. I guess you can't complain for a free service. Olivia is sad that her teacher isn't going to come anymore. Perhaps it's time to buy a K curriculum and get started on it.
