I'm back from my working vacation - and am EXHAUSTED! I got in late last night after midnight and grabbed yesterday's DD - but my word - it looks like so much happened here last week - it's going to take me HOURS to catch up!

First ? - has Traci had her baby yet?

I was able to log on a little while I was gone - but I only averaged about 4 hours of sleep every night I was at our old car meet - so I am totally exhausted! I did have some fun though. I probably took over 3000 photos last week for my club's car magazine - so I have tons of work to do - BUT I am going to take a few days off from that - and get caught up here with my layouts and posting and commenting - etc. I can't believe how much I missed all of you last week and GDS!

I may have over 300 email messages to read through - BUT this is the FIRST place I came to when I logged on just now! I had lots of GDS and digiscrapping withdrawal last week!

Just wanted to let you know that I'm back (with a bad sunburn - ouch)!

And to answer your question .. NOPE ... I'm STILL HERE!! :laugh:

Had a dr appt this morning and if I don't go into labor by July 17 (which I know I will!) Then that's when he'll be here! If I go into labor before that, it'll most likely be an emergency c-section .. unless the little monster decides to TURN AROUND!!
(everyone, I need FLIP vibes! I don't want a c-section!!)

Hope your work vacation was fantastic, Helen!! You were certainly missed around here ... and your input is required on one of greist's LOs :laugh:

Is it your first baby?
DD1 kept her head up, dr couldn't flip her, and I had to go through C-section (took me more than 2 years to really get over it :-( ). DD2 followed the same path, but this time, the dr managed to flip her (apparently, my womb was softer!). I gave birth naturally (without any kind anesthesia, although it's very common here: 80%!!!)

here are the good vibes:

FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP! FLIP!

No way!! This is my FIFTH!!! I've been through one c-section already .. took a month for me to recover from the surgery, and I don't HAVE a month to recover!! I have 4 other kids to take care of, plus a Grandmother with Alzheimer's that I care for :wink:

He's still not flipped!! *wah*

Helen, are you getting all caught up yet??? :laugh: I'm sure that was a daunting task!

Glad you are back Helen. Is your car club a local club, or was the show a National Meet? We belong to the BCA (Buick Club of America) but are not active any more - still have our 55 convertible and working on it now again.
Looking forward to some pics too!

TraciJ - FLIP LITTLE ONE please :)

Thanks everyone! Nope I'm not caught up yet. I had over 300 emails to go through - and my house is a disaster. I have to go do a grocery shopping today - no food in the house! :laugh:

I haven't unpacked yet, laundry to do, etc. And I have a magazine to get done in the next week - too much to do and not enough time!

Yes, we belong to the Model A Restorers Club. It's a national club with some international members too. Model A's built by Ford in 1928-1931. My husband has been restoring them since he was in high school in the early 60s - his stepdad got him interested in cars to keep him out of trouble. It worked. :laugh:

My priorities this week at GDS - get my 5th layout done, get some challenge pages done, and my patriotic page done, and browsing the gallery. Wow - better get back to work! :laugh:
