Funny thing about blogging...

Ya know, the funny thing about blogging is that the longer you don't do it, the harder it is to come back and catch up. I am sorry for my absense, but I do have a valid excuse. The day of my last entry I started having some pains...I just thought that the baby was in the wrong position and taking it out on me, but I finally realized Saturday night that those pains were coming at regular intervals...uh oh!!!

I finally went to the hospital Sunday morning (in a bit of a panic because DH was out of town, I was only 28 weeks pregnant and definitely having contractions 5 minutes apart.) The good news is that yes, I was having contractions, but it was only because of a bladder infection...not actual labor. The bad news is that they lasted another 2 days...ugh!! 4 days of contractions is something that I never want to go through again!!! I only had 10 hours with DS...and I am very happy to do that again. So I took it easy for a good week there trying to relax on the couch and not upset the balance (sitting at the computer or my scrap space would bring them on again.)

But I am all good again. Katherine is just as active as ever so she is none the worse for wear and I am finally starting to get back into my routine which finally includes some blogging.

So what did I do while spending a week on the couch??? I learned how to crochet!! So fun and relaxing!!! I have made several projects and will be taking photos over the next few days so that you can see.

In the meantime, here are a couple of cj's that I have managed to get done over the last couple of weeks. This first one is a quote themed one...

Then this one has a musical theme:


I promise to be back soon with more to share. I cleaned my scraproom yesterday so I am hoping to get something accomplished in there today!!!

So glad you and Katherine are both OK Christi. Had been wondering where you were.

Was hoping you were all well! Glad to hear it was just a bladder infection ~ not that that is any fun either.
Great to see you back! Have a great Thursday!
