Ugh...

Hubby has been away this week. I've overdosed on sugar to make it through the day with work, the Monster having an on and off again fever, and being 6 months pregnant. Hey, I can't have a stiff scotch at the end of the day! Therefore, I resorted to brownies and Cadbury's Mini-Eggs. And now I feel it. Time to take a break - after tonight's cookie...

It is also sad to say that with no one to keep company once the Monster was in bed I should have done some quilting or at least something creative. Instead, all I managed to do was soak in a hot bath every night (damn pregnancy side effects - enough said) and work on the binding for a wall hanging while watching reality TV.
It isn't quite done yet, but I'll have time in the coming week to finish and maybe even get my scarf done. We are off to the land of peaches, wine, and cheese - the Okanagan. Hubby's grandpa lives there and all parties were anxious for a good visit. It's a 7 hour drive - with a toddler. Hmm, maybe I'll wait to take a break from sugar.

if you need a low sugar sugar fix try this: mix package of jello powder with a tub of whipped cream, and spread onto graham crackers and freeze like icec ream sandwiches. good for ladies with gestational diabetes.

Cheryl - what a great blog you've got going! And with a baby and being preggers too; that's quite the accomplishment. I remember being so exhausted when I was pregnant so I'm glad you're able to get some creative time in while your baby sleeps.

I remember being so stressed out and tired one day when I was working in an office and pregnant with my first, that I desperately wanted SOMETHING to drink afterwards. So, I went home and did a shot of Hershey's syrup. Not the same effect but it was fun to lick the glass. ;)

Ooo, and I'm a fan of the Oxford Comma too. When I'm actually paying attention to what I write, I'll stick it in there and then get corrected by my English Major friends. Oh, well.
