DAYDREAMING WHILE TAKING IT EASY....

Yesterday while I was keeping my feet up and basically doing nothing, I began to daydream about remodeling parts of my house. Of course, this will not be happening anytime soon but just in case I like to be prepared. One of the first areas I would start with is the bathrooms. I would love to have new bathroom vanities in all 3 of my bathrooms. I would also like to do the kitchen next. Granite countertops would be awesome. This is really not something that we need, just something that I want.


Here is a picture of what I would love to have in the master bath.






Do you every daydream about remodeling your home? What areas would you start in??

PREGNANCY UPDATE

I am heading into Week 38 and things are not going as smoothly this week. The doctor put me 1/2 days at work last Thursday until my appointment on Tuesday. Tuesday I went in to discover that my blood pressure was very high. The highest reading was 180/120 and the lowest reading was 164/90. He immediately sent me to the hospital for monitoring. I was told that if it did not stabilize then I was going to be induced!!

After staying at the hospital for 4 hours, my blood pressure stabilized after about the first 30 minutes there and I came home. I am out of work until Monday. I am to take it easy, stay off my feet and do nothing. I go back to the doctor for another checkup Monday morning.

Of course, I want them to do whatever is necessary to keep the baby and myself healthy but OH MY GOSH I panicked when I thought the baby may arrive a month early. I still don't have anything ready. Needless to say, my husband will have a very busy weekend!! His list has already been made and we have got to get things done.

Please say a prayer for me and I'll keep you updated.
