Sitting on My Can

Yes, I am bored out of my mind! I never paid too much attention to daytime TV and now I know why. Good thing the Olympics are on! China isn't fooling anybody, those gymnasts are not 16!!!

I was lucky to have Breaking Dawn come out right before I went on bed rest. That got me through the rough first few days. It was sooo good!

I have also been VERY blessed to have lots of visitors, dinners brought in, and lots of babysitters. I would have lost my mind by now if it wasn't for the amazing people in my neighborhood and ward. I have hardly had to lift a finger.

I finally did something sorta productive last night. I sat on the couch with all my bow making supplies and made some cute clips. I haven't made any hair things after Ella's arms got long enough to rip out her own hair dos and ruin whatever I had put in her hair. I think she may be old enough now to like having "pretties" in her hair and hopefully, she won't trash them. The bigger ones are for Tabby. She only has about 30,000 hair accessories so of course, we need more!
I was supposed to have a doc's appointment today but I got moved to next Tuesday. Bummer. I really wanted an update. Oh well, I guess if I have learned anything this past week, it's PATIENCE.

you and your mother have probably cornered the market on being bored out of your minds these days.

If you get bored enough to write my pal Colleen and I are looking for little stories, drawings or whatever talking about the joy being physically active can be for kids. If you know kids from 8-16 pass it on and adults can write about their experiences too

Congratulations on being prego and yet, I'm sorry for you having to be on bedrest! You are so great in that you have a great attitude! I'm sure all will be well!

You inspire me making hairbows. Yours are way cute! Oh, and I just finished Breaking Dawn. I'm putting together a "Kari review" on my blog. Let's discuss when you finish!
