week's news, Happy Labor Day!...

I would like to sincerely apologize to those of you who participated in last week's Photo Scavenger Hunt and LOLpets.  I have been unable to post your entries and give a new Hunt subject because I was busy with a little boy and a sick daughter.  My daughter was in the hospital all last week with a severe kidney infection.  I took care of Josiah.  When Josiah comes to Grammy's it's "play time" so I got no break!! LOL  Chelsea is healing.  She is very weak and still hurts some, but is recovering.  Her baby (in her belly) is okay.  She had contractions the first day in the hospital (every two minutes!) but they stopped, thank goodness.  She did that with her pregnancy with Josiah, too.  She had a lot of false contractions in her eighth month.  That never happened with me.  She is getting large now.  Her baby is due October 7.  They picked out a name - Jonah Alexander.  I like it very much!  I might be repeating myself.  LOL  I forgot what I have and haven't told everyone.  Oh, I am getting very excited!!  I better finish crocheting the baby's first blanket!!

I am so, so sore from taking care of Josiah and I am having a lot of muscle spasms.  My fibromyalgia has flared BIG TIME!   It was worse yesterday so I will be okay.  I am at my worst in the morning right when I wake up.  That's why I get on the computer.  I am in too much pain to do anything else.  I wait for my muscle and nerve pain medicines to work and for my body to kick in.  It takes about two hours.  Anyone who knows me knows that I DO NOT do anything for two hours after I get up except sit at the computer.  My body stops around 4PM, too, and doesn't start up again until 9PM.  I have a weird cycle.  I do very well late at night, too.  Very late evening is my best time of day.

I will be posting everyone's entries and a Hunt subject in the next day.  I just wanted you all to know that I didn't disappear.  I wanted to thank everyone who was praying for Chelsea, too, it meant the world to us!!  God bless and have a good Labor Day! xox
