Checking In

Hi friends!  Let me start off by saying thank you to all of you who worried, prayed, & sent sweet messages to me over the past several days.  What a whirlwind it's been, but I am happy to finally report that my world is no longer spinning.  Can I get a HALLELUJAH?!  One liter of fluids, some heavy sedation, & fifteen hours of straight sleep seemed to do the trick.  Who knew?

My parents have been in town for the past couple of days, & Meatball has been pratically gobbled up!  He is being constantly entertained, constantly doted on, & constantly spoiled up-- just as it should be when grandparents are around, right?  They've started off their days with swimming & swinging in the back yard, they've topped off dinner with not one, but two popsicles {sending our Jett man into a sugar high I've never witnessed before}, & they've completed the bedtime routine with full fledged dance parties in Jett's nursery {one in which Jett slammed the door on me, declaring it a grandparents only dance party}.  Let's just say that Jett {& the grandparents} are sleeping really well at night.

While Jett has been keeping his grandparents busy, I've been laid up on the couch doing this:

Good golly, Miss Molly,  I am addicted!  Now, I've known all about Pinterest for quite some time now.  And I have purposefully NOT joined it because I was afraid it would be like facebook & become a great big time sucker.  But when I got a message from a friend saying that I should get on board, & then the next morning had a Pinterest invite waiting in my email inbox from a different friend,  I figured it was a sign {thanks Andrea & Grace}.  I jumped on the bandwagon & I haven't looked back for a second!  I'm in love.  I'm swooning & drooling & getting all giddy because all of my thoughts about everything can be in one place.  I swear, this kind of thing was made for girls like me.  Girls who have folders chocked full of birthday ideas, home decorating ideas, sewing ideas, baby room ideas {you should see the three ring binder folder I still have of all the baby ideas from when I was pregnant with Jett}.  Girls who bookmark everything on their computer or file it away somewhere in cyberspace only to not be able to find it when they need it.  Yeah, Pinterest rocks for girls like me.  And if you haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet...just wait.  You will.

Well my friends, that's it for checking in.

I've got lots of housework to catch up on, lots of un-spoiling to do, & about a weeks worth of living life to make up for.

But don't worry--I'll be checking in again real soon!

Happy Thursday--or is it Wednesday?  I am so completely off schedule.

Happy Day!  There...that covers it all.
