Oh my dear peeps... what chaos has overcome me over these past few weeks.   Everything seems to still be ok with the baby though I am going to have aged a good 10 years in these ensuing months.  I have some bleeding behind the placenta ( they think ) which means that every now and again I get a tiny bleed.  Yeah.  Just what every expectant mother with a history of loss needs... a little bleed every few days.  It's "NOTHING to worry about" ....  uh huh.  Tell that to my insides that drop every single time!!  Anyway, apparently it IS nothing to worry about and I should just get used to it.  Yeesh,   What a test of my faith this is !  I recently saw a wonderful Pinterest picture... a snarly wolf image with the words Bite Off More Than You Can Chew.... And Then Chew It !!!  I like it!! It's a good reminder.  Also... ahem.... it turns out that stopping mood altering medications cold turkey is not to be recommended.  I hadn't thought about it at all but those TEENY TINY pills I take pack one heck of a punch and by suddenly deciding to stop taking them when I found out I was pregnant... well that started what can only be described as a roller coaster of emotion.  A DOWN only roller coaster.  Perhaps a spiral would be a more apt description!  Anyway, suffice it to say it was bad.  VERY very bad.  I do believe this weekend was the pinnacle and that finally I have  made it through my withdrawals.  I am speaking to my doctor about it on Monday and hopefully she will agree that there is no need for meds while I am pregnant.  ( The meds are hormone regulators and pregnancy does that all by itself! ) anyhow... I'm sure that's more about me than you guys needed to know, but I do want to stress that should you ever find yourself in a similar situation, cold turkey is NOT the way to go!! Ooops.   

Hmm... let's see what else..??  Oh yeah... and then it snowed...!!  A LOT!!   ***happy sigh***  I do love the snow and one does sort of expect it in winter...I mean in Nebraska !  You might not expect it in the tropics, but I would grow bored without SOME change in environment throughout the year!  As you may have noticed I still haven't figured out how to get photos from a Mac onto my blog ( help!!? ) but BOY do I have a ton for you once I get it figured out!!  

My knitting is going well though I have way more ambition than follow through. I have a tendency to pick up the needles and fall straight asleep!   I have a stack of very simple ("Simples!" ) knitting patterns I want to make.... that's about it!!!  I started the socks... and then stopped!  No fun!!!  Tooooo tiny stitches.  So I started my tunic!  I'm still working on that and will be for a's huge... but at least it's pretty simple so far!!  I like my knitting projects fast and easy! ;D  ( shush you. )

Well.... there ya have it.... a whole lot of nothing when seen on the page but boy... it adds up to a full week nevertheless!! 

Catch ya next time folks!  :D
