Can't sleep

Here I am at 5 am on the computer. I could not sleep. I have been awake since 3 and felt like I was keeping Rob awake so I finally decided to get up and do something. I just couldn't stop thinking about stuff...mostly about having this baby but at 3 am you can worry about strange things!

Only 2 weeks until my due date! I'm so excited and nervous to finally have this baby. Sometimes I just can't wait for Sadie to meet him and to be a mother of 2...but other times I find myself wondering "what are you thinking??!! You are not ready to have 2 kids running around!" Too late for that I guess. No but really, we are all pretty excited to meet this little guy. He can come any day now. I hope he waits till my mom gets here at least.

So last night I had an incident with my glue gun. I was trying to make a fabric rosette by bunching up some fabric and gluing a piece of felt on the back to hold it in place. Well, my first mistake is that I didn't know what I was doing. My second mistake was trying to do it while watching the biggest loser. My third mistake was putting way too much glue because there wasn't enough light. Anyway, I got burned really bad on 4 of my fingers because as I tried to shake the burning glue off of my fingers, the fabric began to become "unbunched" and kept getting more and more glue on my other hand. Finally I shook it off and it landed in my hair so I left it there as I tried to peel off all the glue that was still burning my fingers. IT HURT! I have 4 blisters on my fingers now and it was burning for about 2 hours last night.

Needless to say, my glue gun is being put away today for at least a week. I'll stick to sewing.

Oh Linds!! I just did that with superglue a few days ago..only superglue doesn't burn. I'm sorry to hear about your fingers. I am excited for you to have your little boy. He is going to add so much fun and happiness to your family. You guys will be in our thoughts and prayers!

oh no! I agree-Biggest Loser can be very distracting, but I sure do look forward to Tuesdays! I'm so excited for you :) You are going to be a brilliant mother of two.

Low temp glue guns have saved me from saying many swear words and burnt fingers. Make the switch you will love it! Can't wait to see the little man!

Yikes. That hurts! I got a bug bite that has been itching like crazy for the last 2 days, so I can't imagine burn blisters on all my fingers. Ouch Ouch
