The Girl Who Cried Baby

I woke up this morning at about 4 with some vague achy feelings and couldn’t go back to sleep really well. I got up about 6 and took a shower. So, um, yeah, I’m having contractions again. They’re about 10 minutes apart. My doula says we will go when they are five minutes apart.

In the meantime, I’m doing some laundry (sheets must be washed!) and reading Craft: Transforming Traditional Crafts that I picked up in a hormone-induced dream yesterday that told me I would have time to read in the hospital. Or at the very least, I needed something really interesting to flip pages of while there.

I cannot put it down! Amy, there’s a beautiful knitted kimono for you. Jessica, there’s about three-four crochet projects for you. Ashley, there’s a crafty make a wi-fi stuffed animal that we are so gonna make for the girls. I’m thinking of getting the very expensive subscription because I’m already addicted to this particular brand of craft crack.

Oops, another contraction. Gotta go rotate the laundry.

    I stopped by again, after only reading Loltrek….and what a day to stop by. Happy birthing!

    Craft is the companion magazine to Make, right? I certainly love my Make subscription (thanks Duchess!), and I bet Stephen would, too. Maybe I should show Craft to Duchess and see what happens?

    Yeah, they are sister mags from O’Reilly. You should definitely show it to Duchess. Stephen knows about Make and I’m thinking the two together could make for some interesting science projects for the kids.

    Awesome! I may have to look into that magazine. I’ve seen it before, but haven’t ever bought one. Hmmm…

    You can look at mine and see if you like it. It has an article about the stitch n’ bitch woman.
