Sorry about the privacy settings on my blog. I have a good reason for it for the time being. Don't worry, I don't have a stalker or anything. I just don't want my photos accessible at this time. ;)

Another layout and some updates

Here's yet another LO that I did for 3 Scrappy Boys. I loved this month's kit soooo much! It's the only time that I have been able to get away with pastel pink since all the layouts I did with it center around Valentine's Day, lol.

The surrogacy is finally coming along. I have been asked to protect the privacy of my new intended parents, so I will not be going into any details on them. I will say that the contracts are done, my life insurance policy is in place and the bloodwork has been completed by Clayton and myself. Next week, I will begin ultrasound monitoring so that we can be sure that everything is doing what it should be doing. A calendar will be drawn up soon and then we will know when the transfer will take place. Yay! Wish us luck. :)

Emerson has been doing fine all week. His bout with pneumonia this past Saturday quickly began to end when he got his antibiotics on Sunday. He has been running around and acting like himself. I even took him to school on Tuesday since he seemed to be doing so well and didn't have anything contagious. His lungs still have a little bit of a rattle to them but that will take some time to disappear. All in all, he is A-OK.

We have paid off our entire Disney World vacation. That was taken care of this past Friday. Now all we have to do is wait until time to go! Yay!!

A Couple Layouts for 3SB

Poor E

My little guy Emerson began to get sick yesterday. He was running a high fever and sounded majorly congested by the time that dinner rolled around. His breathing started to sound wheezy and short. We gave him some Tylenol to battle the fever and then laid him down for the night. I had to get up at 4am to comfort him. His breathing sounded even worse and he was burning up so I laid him down in our bed. He sounded so bad that I felt the need to monitor him until we could get him to the pediatrician as soon as they opened. Needless to say, I got no sleep, lol. I was so worried about the poor little guy that I just watched him for the next few hours. Once the sun came up, Clayton got up with him and took him to see the doctor. It turned out that he was in the beginning stage of pneumonia. He came home with some antibiotics and some cough medicine that knocked him off his butt. The cough medicine has vicodin in it so he rested well during his nap. When I went to get him, he felt the hottest that I have ever felt someone with a fever. It really freaked me out! His cheeks and legs looked sunburnt as they were soooo red. His temperature read 103.2. After we got some Motrin in him, his temperature went back down. Tonight will likely be a rough one but I hope that the fever and wheezing are gone by tomorrow. Poor guy, he always has such bad luck.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

My hubby is the best! I found a Canon All-in-One photo printer and a new wireless mouse for my laptop sitting on the couch this morning. It was totally unexpected. I also got the sweetest email from him. He put a lot of thought into this gift and I am so appreciative of that. He had a list of things that he was thinking about buying but ultimately decided that a techie gift would be more fun to receive. I have to agree! He also downloaded a cool Bon Jovi ringtone to my cell phone. I had no idea that he had done that until he called me this morning. It is awesome!

Clayton thought that I would want to go out to eat tonight but I had already planned out a yummy dinner. Just in case he is reading this, I won't say what it is until later. ;)

I hope that you all have a wonderful day today!

LOST is on tonight!!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
It is about stinkin' time too. There will be a review episode at 9pm and I will definitely have to watch it before the new one. I can't remember diddly at this point. It's been forever since the last one. Wasn't it in October or November? Sheesh, I can't remember what I ate for breakfast, much less what was happening on a TV show that was aired months ago. :P

Praise God!!

Yesterday, my husband was on a flight to Wisconsin and I sent a prayer that he land safely. It's a good thing I did because his plane was having problems when they got to the airport. A flap on the wing was malfunctioning. They stayed in a holding pattern for 45 min. while they worked on getting it taken care of. The pilot told the passengers that it was no big deal and that it should be easy to fix. If that was the case, why did it take so stinkin' long to land? Why were news crews and fire trucks all over the airport? I am so glad that I didn't know about this when it was happening. I probably would have had a heart attack if I saw this on the news. Thank God everything is okay and that he heard my prayer. Now I will start sending multiple prayers for a safe trip home.

Here's a link to a news article about it: Article
