She's baaaaaaack

Big Bertha kicked my rear last night. Took forever to fall asleep, then I was really hot then chills for several hours, waking repeatedly. I was actually happy to see the sun this morning. Every muscle in my body is sore like I have the flu. Good thing dinner's also being provided.

My MOPS group got wind of my shot experience and decided to put me on the Meals For Moms list this week. It's a very sweet gesture though last week, when I was doing ok on the lower dose, it seemed a little unnecessary. But they wouldn't take no for an answer and today, I have to say, "Hallelujah!" Sometimes I just try to do too much and not accept help from others. I'm so glad God found a way around my stubbornness to provide dinners this week because apparently I'll need an extra hand or two.

In other news, I have a new nephew. Yes, it seems the family is reproducing like bunnies. He's out of state so I'll post pictures when I get them. :)

The kids dug out Matthew's box of Transformers from the basement yesterday. When he got his new bed last spring, we cleaned out his room and downsized the toys. He wasn't playing much with his Transformers anymore but he wasn't quite ready to give them up completely. So we put them in a labeled box downstairs in storage and I hadn't heard another word about them. Until yesterday. He and Rose, mostly, are having a blast with them - like brand-new toys. I'm glad they're getting more use out of them. After all, there's a small fortune worth of Transformers here, certainly more than meets the eye. ;)

Sorry about Bertha but so glad you have plenty of friends there to help out. How sweet of them to provide dinner. Welcome to the world, New Nephew!! And lastly, if you ever want to get rid of those Transformers, let me know. Scott eats, drinks and sleeps Transformers!! Ok, he also makes time for Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones!!! Hope you feel better soon!!! muah!!!

I'm so sorry to hear that your reaction to the shots are still so terrible.

A new nephew? How cool! You are quite the auntie =)

It's great that you have MOPS -- God provides when we most need it, and it's always OK to ask for help.

Please get lots and lots of rest and I'll keep you in my prayers.
