So I get a call from my mom about 2 hours ago. My pregnant SIL, Donna is at the hospital. She’s 4 cm dilated, contractions are about 7 minutes apart, but her water hasn’t broken yet. And, get this, her labor isn’t painful. All she’s feeling is pressure. Bitch. Then I get a call about 10 minutes later telling me that they sent her home. Serves her right for not having painful labor!
Needless to say, my mind’s not on much else today. Looks like this weekend will see another tiny soul enter this world, and knowing my brother, he’ll be kicking and screaming and making his presence known (the baby, not my brother, though it actually COULD be. We’ll see). Marie knows what that’s all about! I guess I need to get cracking on the finishing touches of the baby blanket!
Now, I’m sure most of you are familiar with Cute Overload. Well this one’s even better! Hell, the caterpillar post alone is the stuff of nightmares, and is worth subbing for. Bleh! Now, let’s not go ruining it by getting all kinda LoLcats-carried away, deal?
For those of you who answered my plea for help regarding a beautiful boxer dog named Sugar Ray, there’s been some very encouraging news. As of yesterday, Sugar Ray has gained 3 pounds! They’re still accepting donations, but I wanted to thank everyone who has donated so far.
Now, after the last major fuck up, and serious toe-steppage, I’ve completely sworn off memes. Nope, not gonna do it. And thet Anti-meme button you see over there on my “About Me” page? I’m gonna have that tattooed on my ass so if I’m ever tempted to show it again, I can just look down and be reminded to drop the meme and back away slowly. But quizzes, on the other hand, are still fair game. Though most of them are lame, this one was irresistible. You should go do it. I’ll wait.
