Cheer Up!

Sometimes it feels like the universe is speaking to me, sometimes it feels like it's laughing at me...
A few weeks ago Brandy and Sheila announced their Cheer Up Swap... I'm really not good at things like that and was didn't sign up because I was afraid of being flaky or having a baby or something crazy like that. Brandy begged asked me to join in, so I did. I was paired with the beautiful Sheila and ended up having a lot of fun with it.
I spent Friday night at Labor & Delivery with contractions every 3 minutes, but I didn't make any progress so they sent me home with some drug that was supposed to relax me. I woke up feeling like I got hit by a train. I didn't really get out of bed at all on Saturday, until Sean came in at about 4 and said "Your swap package is here!" So I got up, and it was totally worth it! Look at my fun stuff I got!
Yes, there was even chocolate. No, I haven't eaten all of it yet.
Isn't this the truth? I promptly made myself a big mug of hot chocolate!
These paper blocks might be the cutest I've ever seen!
Thanks Sheila... this totally cheered me up! Hope everyone had fun and I can't wait to see what you all got.
P.S. There is no new baby news yet except that I feel awful... I'll keep everyone updated as there is news to share. Today I went for a 2 mile walk. It succeeded only in making me feel worse, and my legs are tired now. Sweet.

There's nothing worse than going into L&D and being told it's a "false alarm." So frustrating! (Well, maybe there are worse things, but at that moment there doesn't seem to be.)

I'm glad you had something wonderful like that to cheer you up. Chocolate sounds really good.

That package of stuff is awesome. Sorry that whatever drug they gave you was so rough! Also, HOW DARE YOU tell me there were no updates on the blog when in fact there was a big huge false labor announcement? I've been missing things, I tell you, and I do not like missing things. Hmph.
