I hate needles!

Ok, so this morning I had my 3-hour blood screening for glucose. This is the more in depth test since I failed the 1-hour test last week. So basically they told me I couldn't eat after midnight last night then they took blood when I first got there this morning. Then I got to drink that oh-so-yummy orange drink and get my blood taken every hour for the next 3 hours. Yeah - that's 4 TIMES that they took my blood! All out of the same arm in the same general area - needless to say, my arm is sore and looking like someone used me for a pin cusion! THEN - I FINALLY got to go get some food - close to noon! (It's not nice to starve a pregnant woman!) Ugh! I hope this test comes back as negative. I don't want to give up sugar for the next 2 to 2 1/2 months! I should hear something about the results by the end of the week.

On a much MUCH better note - we ordered our glider this weekend! We went to visit Grant's family this weekend. Susan had found a great place that had the Dutailier gliders where you can specially order the wood finish and fabric and all the features you want. The one we ordered is going to be great! The wood finish is pretty close to our furniture and the fabric we picked is a sage green micro-fiber that matches our bedding perfectly! It will be beautiful, AND it is probably the most comfortable chair I have ever sat in! We also found out that if we ever wanted to change the fabric, we can just order replacement cusions for it. So, if we, say, have a boy in a couple years and want it to match his room, we can do that! Yeah, my long search is over!

We has also been looking for an unfinished bookshelf for her room so that I can paint it green to match and we have a solution for that, too! One of Grant's dad's friends from work builds furniture and they are going to have him make us a little bookshelf exactly how we want it! Yeah, now I just need some wall art and I'll be done with the decorating! (I just have no idea what to use for wall art!)

We also got to see little Drew (Our new nephew) this weekend and he is a cutie! He is a very serious little man - always with a serious look on his face and he wrinkles up his little forhead like he is in deep thought! But he is very cute and has very nice blue-blue eyes. I think he may actually keep his blue eyes - like his daddy! Check out their new web page:

Anyway, that's about all for now. I'll let you all know when I get my results back from my glucose test. Keep your fingers crossed for me! :)

Sorry to hear about the needles- just wait til the birth and they poke you with the huge IV needle! You might have to hook me up with the furniture man- I cannot find a black bookshelf that I like!
