I realized about 6 weeks ago that I have Restless Leg Syndrome. It's one of those things that either you have it or don't. I went to the doctor last week and was put on a medication. It takes time to work and it really isn't yet. The pain in my legs and not getting much sleep most nights is taking a toll on me. I generally start going down hill mid morning and need a nap shortly after lunch. It's getting hard to be motivated to get all my sewing done. It's difficult to have another problem that won't just go away. Once you have RLS, you have it always.

October 23

Where do I start? I have been sewing lots. The bridesmaid dress I'm working on is coming. It had to go from a 22 to a 16. Don't know what the store was thinking when it was ordered. Normally this isn't a difficult thing, bit the bust seams need to be moved and that means also the stays. That is a pain. I'm also making sleepers for the little ones. And Emily gets a birthday present. She turned 30 on the 18th. I am making Christmas ornaments and gifts for Grandchildren.
I am getting tired of the chaos in the house too. The living room needs painting. It's ready....I just need to do it....after some of the sewing gets done. Kim is going to make book shelves for the kitchen...after he gets more wood cut and Erik's gun cabinet finished. Then I will paint the kitchen too. Yellow and red. I really like that combination.
I would like to have Ashley's family over for supper as they are engaged now, but I would like to have the painting done first. We shall see.

Last Wednesday,I took Emily to be monitored as she had a bad headache and her blood pressure was quite high. Every time she sat up, her bp went up and when she laid down, it went down. The baby was fine. They decided to keep her and try to relieve her headache. The next morning her headache was worse, so Corine Lyanne was born. She weighed 7lbs. and 6oz. Kim and I tool Carly to see her new sister right away. She wasn't impressed. Emily and the baby came home on Sunday.

Sunday morning, Allison called and said she felt funny and asked a few questions and I told her I thought she would go into labor soon. She did. She was admitted early Monday morning. After 3 hours of real labor and one push, Mila Joy was born. 7 lbs even. We will be going to see them this weekend.

I have been trying to get my sewing projects done, but it has been going pretty slowly. Maybe after this weekend things will get to a new normal and I can accomplish something.
