For Nicole...sorry you never received it...

I remark sheepishly. Poor Nicole was so sick and I made this card for her to cheer her up. I just never got around to giving it to her and admittedly she's a whole lot better now, just not totally recovered. What a horrible visiting teacher I am. Bad Misty.
So anywho. I first sprayed the blue cardstock with Frosty Nights glimmer mist. Next, I just mounted a sticker on cardstock and trimmed it out. Laid a piece of tule over top and sewed a pocket...added flower glitter in the pocket and finished sewing. I used a tiny dragonfly stamp to create the border strip and sprayed it with Tiger Lily glimmer mist. Lastly, I punched the circle, wrote my sentiment and sprayed it with Olive Vine glimmer mist. Walah, all finished.

So today, my dearest husband got told off over the phone while I was standing in Target. He had called me for the third time to ask how I was doing. I told him nothing was going on and I just wanted to keep busy to which he replied, "NOTHING!". Yes dear, nothing. He was acting so frustrated I practically yelled into the phone, "What, do you think I WANT this baby to stay inside me, do you think I'm holding it in on purpose?" He quickly realized his gaff and apologized profusely. Sheesh, he's worse than my mom who keeps calling me EVERY day to ask me, "Have you had the baby yet?". The two people in my life that I'm sure to call call FIRST are giving me a darn headache. Sorry to rant but I want this baby out. I haven't gained ANY weight in the past month but my stomach has gotten huge and I'm starting to worry about how big this little boy will be when he enters the world. Aaron was a HEALTHY 9lbs 6oz and I really don't want to deliver a 10lb plus baby. Thankfully I've only purchased one package of Newborn sized diapers. We probably won't be needing many of them.
On the plus side...the weather is very nice today and my FIL is making huge strides with building the closet that will house my wonderful water softener...which will then allow me to have a DISH WASHER...well, I have one now but I don't use it because our water is so hard and I would just have to rewash the dishes anyway. Do a little happy dance for me on that one.
Have a great day!

Oh, dear! Still no baby yet? He'll come soon, I'm sure of it :) I'll keep sending you some positive thoughts of labor and delivery!

That's great that your FIL is getting closer to completing your water softner closet! I will certainly do a happy dance for you today.

Here's wishing you some contractions!

yeah, it's letting me leave a comment today, for some reason, it hasn't been letting me..
I've been following you every day, thinking of you!!!
It will be soon....
and i know what you mean about people calling you every day, several times a day, seeing if you had the baby yet...like you are gonna go have it and NOT call anyone for weeks right?? i'm sooooo sick of it too...and if i don't answer the phone, then the hosptial gets called , and so on and on and on... it's getting old i agree and i'm not even due for another week or so... sheesh!!!
at least you are out running around, that makes the time pass a bit more!
speaking of...my mom is calling.... he heheee..... please! ha...
good luck girl...thinking of you!

Thanks for the card Misty! It has been so hard to be sick for so long and depend on people. My family is on burn out and want to get back to their normal lives. (Like I don't?!!!) I think I am just a little testy these days ~ you know that feeling! At least you will give birth soon to a sweet baby. All the Dr.'s keep telling me is "Give it a few more months, it should go away!"

Actually I was thinking about it as I read about your frustration and because I have big babies my doctor doesn't let me even go to my due date. That's crazy! I say you send your inlaws out with the kids and have some quiet time with Travis. Either that or since you're getting induced Friday maybe just relax?

Erica B. said...

actually I've been not calling you on purpose. I know who it is, and when you call people they automatically think you are calling to announce the baby.

I was thinking about you so thought I'd pop over & say HI!
Hope you have your feet up & are being served tea & massages?
Big hug OK!

You have made such a nice, warm, comfortable home inside of you for that baby, that he just doesn't want to come out! However, you posted this on the 23rd, and it's now the 25th, so I'm thinking this is good! Lots of luck and good wishes for you Misty!!

Deb said...

LOL! This is soooo adorable, love the bug, colors, everything!

Alexandra said...

Oh, girl - have I been there!! Sometimes they just don't get it, but they do mean well!! I am hoping as I am typing this that you have gone in and had a gorgeous LESS THAN 10 pound baby boy - lol! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex
