Just Random

You'd think it was Christmas today with the way I slept last night.
Remember Christmas Eve as a child, when you would wake up EVERY single hour in anticipation?
That was me, last night...dreaming about my workshop tonight.
I'm not nervous (thanks to my card classes I've been teaching), but anxious would be a proper description of my current attitude.
Here's what I'm demonstrating tonight:
I'm debating adding a bookmark...but we'll have to see how the day goes.
These are some of the door prizes:

I'll be baking refreshments here soon...banana bread and fruit pizza.
I'm going for simple, and I think this meets that criteria.

I am so glad that Sanjaya is FINALLY gone from American Idol.
It seriously turned my stomach that he was still on.
Interesting to me to see that the top three were Chris, Phil and Jordin.
I have no problem with Jordin being there, but the other two are questionable.
I loved Melinda's refusal to "choose sides".

My visiting teachers are coming today.
I love them.
They are very diligent, and sincere.
It makes their visit a joy, and not an obligation.

My kids love PBS in the morning.
Except "It's a Big, Big World".
Why is that?
I must admit the plot line is lacking...but Bekah actually likes Barney...well, she's a singer and dancer, so that would explain that.
I love PBS too.
Did you here American Experience will be on The Mormons on the 30th of April and 1st of May?
That will be interesting to watch.

I'm reading THE ROBE by Lloyd C. Douglas for book club...hosted here next Tuesday.
I haven't had the time I have wanted to sit down and read it in big chunks...but I'm making progress.
I read it once before (about 10 years ago), but don't remember much about it.
I chose it for this month.
So far, feedback from the other book club members has been good.

Do you think it's odd that I am 25 weeks pregnant and can still lay on my stomach?
(With no problem or uncomfortableness people...what is up with that??
In all 6 other pregnancies this has never been the case!)
Weight gain has been nil this pregnancy too (3 lbs.).
That would not be a complaint there dear readers...just an observation.
(If I follow my general pattern, I will gain 20 lbs. in the last 6 weeks and be mortified due to my ever increasing weight week by week.)
If I didn't feel movement so often, I would be a little more concerned...but I am feeling good, strong movements, so that puts my mind at ease.

I think that will wrap it up for now...
I'll let you know how the party goes tonight.

Not so Random Response:

Nice Cards

Save me some fruit pizza

Halleluiah, Sanjaya is gone!

Singing and dancing to Barney... She'll be our American Idol some day

You know, I've never read "The Robe."

Good luck with the last 15 weeks of pregnancy, you're lucky to have such good help in the house too.

Hey, I found you through my sister Wendy's site. Fun blog!

Those cards are great, you are talented!

PBS is a favorite here too - or it was, but we no longer get it. But the Big Big World show is boring to me and the sloth's voice is kind of creepy, drugged out 80's surfer, don't you think?

I'm a tummy sleeper and slept on my stomach during both of my pregnancies as long as possible. No worries about the weight gain, I just figure your body will do what it needs to do - and if that means big gains at the end, then so be it!

Take care!

LOVE your cards! Wish I could come tonight. Maybe you can give me and Rina some private lessons. You'll be great tonight.
My kids cooled to Big, Big World too.
My prayers are with you for a great and healthy pregnancy and baby.

I was on my stomach with Anneliese almost to the end- she was also my fastest recovery, so I could go back to sleeping on my stomach faster. She just might be my favourite child, lol!

Kristi Brooke said...

i love the friends card with the metal do dad, really cool.

can i just say i wish my hair was like sinjaya's, oh i love his hair short and curly.

Jamie said...

How was the party?

SalGal said...

I have to agree... as much as Sanjaya sucked rocks, I LOVED his curly hair at the end there. Think we can give it LOTS of blond highlights and trade?

I'm loving the card on top. It almost looks like a little journal or book cover. Super-cute!

And now for a revelation from the Worst Mom of the Year (1999-Present)... I slept on the side my whole pregnancies. The side you're not supposed to sleep on because of some artery, blah blah blah.

Good luck!!
