Hiya, I know I’ve been a terrible blogger lately. Will a Project Life a spread make up for it?
I created this spread for the One Little Bird blog. You can find the full post over here, where I talk about how to mix and match your digital collections and still have a flawless spread. It also has a ton more detailed photos. Here on my personal blog, I want to write about something a little closer to my heart. Something that is not written or pictured in the spread, but is a huge part of our story.
This is spread that preceded me finding out I was pregnant – by one day. In hindsight the writing was all over the wall.
This whole week I didn’t feel right. I remember feeling like I was getting ‘slow’. I was forgetting stupid little things and that’s what caused me to go in search of a brain training app.
That walk we took in the city and the photo of the leaves? I was feeling ill. I told CJ I thought some fresh air would help, but when I looked down from taking the photo I remember feeling dizzy. Cross my heart I thought I was coming down with something. Idiot!
The biggest tip off came Tuesday AND it might as well of been a GIANT ALBINO ELEPHANT in a snow storm, because I still missed it. I hate K.F.C. to point where 4 years ago I made a new years resolution never to eat it again. I’m proud to say it’s the one and only resolutions I have ever kept, but that’s a story for another day. The night in question, I was exhausted. I’d been sleeping nearly 14 hours a night and it still wasn’t enough. I could not even bring myself to think about cooking dinner, so I begged my husband to get take away. I even sweetened the deal by saying I would go through the K.F.C. drive through for him (He loves it), and true to my word I did. I then drove the 2 blocks to Red Rooster for my dinner, but in that short space of time the smell of the K.F.C. filled my car. Never had I been so affected by a smell. I really thought I was going to purk. If right now your thinking – ‘Gee she’s not very bright’, I don’t blame you.
On Saturday, I went to help my sister move. It wasn’t until I climbed in to bed that night that all the pieces began to fit together in my mind. I remember lying in bed trying to do the math, but being too tired. I figured what the hell, I’d just take a test in the morning and then I wouldn’t need to worry about the math. That was the very last night, I thought of my self as a childless person.
Now that I have had a gross miss overshare – you can go and read all the technical stuff on the collections I used and how it all came together here. Oh…yeah, that was probably why you were here in the first place, huh? Next time, I promise.
