Dear Miss Ducky,
You've been MIA on AIM today. So I thought I'd update you here. Instead of going thru it all again, just read the post before this.

Don't worry I'll wait.

Did u finish? Well okay then. Let's get back to what I wanted to say to you.

I'm all anxious right now. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep.

I wish you were here right now. We could cuddle on my teeny twin size bed and you could tell me everything is gonna be okay. I guess I need a little reassurance .....and maybe some chocolate ;)

This is one of those times when I wish you just lived next door. Or at least in the same time zone so it's easier to catch each other on the intraweb. I wish I could have a real hug. Really I'm just dying for some human affection

I think I'll get going to bed now.
Maybe cry some. I feel so emotionally icky.

I love you and I miss you

Love Always,
amanda: jaclyn's twin sister♥

Ps maybe u should come up with a way for me to sign these private posts between us. Give me a cool nickname.

My sister Jessica is 34 weeks pregnant this week. She's having twins, a boy & a girl. She's been on bedrest since the end of June. She was mad because she only had a day and a half left till the school year was over. Oh btw, she's an 8th grade science teacher.

So anyway we got a call tonight from my brother-in-law Ian stating that Jessica was having contractions and they were at the hospital. She's there for observation.

Depending on what they say when they call us back, we may be going to Conneticut tomorrow. Which only sucks bc I had plans with Aubs. I haven't seen her since she moved years and years ago. Like ten years ago. We have so much to catch up on. But alas it could all be ruined with one phone call.

I can't really blame my sister tho. Just they can't be born now bc their blankets are finished yet!

I'm freaking out. I don't know if I'll get any sleep tonight. And I need the sleep. I've been falling asleep before dinner because of the weird sleep schedule my internal clock is running. I hate it.

I wish I had someone here that would snuggle me and tell me everything's gonna be okay.

So if I'm MIA tomorrow for more than an hour or two I've probably gone to conneticut to see babies being born.

So tonight we got a call from my sister, the one whose pregnant with twins. She's at 24 weeks and the babies are both 2 & 1/2 pounds. She's in the hospital. I'm not really sure what's going on, but they're giving her steroids for the babies' lungs. Her cervix I guess is preparing to give birth or something but she hasn't started dialating and I don't think she's actually gone into labor yet. But they have the babies on monitors.

I just want to cry. She lives four hours away. I'm scared and this song is making me all emo. Stupid JoBros. I'm listening to A Little Bit Longer and it's kind of hitting home right now. I hate it. But I'm torturing myself with it. Maybe I should read some Kradam to cheer me up. :p no it doesn't sound like much fun at this point.

*Sigh* I don't know what to do at this point. Jess will probably be on bedrest for the rest of the pregnancy. Therefore no baby shower and I bought the cutest little outfits for the twins. They're gonna be stylin' that's for sure. But still..... I'm weirded out and I don't like it. I don't like have my big sister in the hospital for any reason.

So I guess that's it for now. Neither mom nor I can sleep. It sucks.


Here's some pretty I drew on my iPod Touch:

Last night I finished the baby blanket for my cousin Dorene's baby shower. It came out really good. But it has now disappeared because my mom wanted to wash it. But it's awesome and I'm glad it's done.

Buddy was doing soooooo much better but now he's doing worse. You can actually hear the snot in his nose when he breathes. And if you put your ear to his body, you can hear him wheezing. My mom just called the vet and she said we have to shower with him, as a steam treatment. Also, we have to get him some wet food because he can smell it better. When cats have stuffy noses and can't smell, they won't eat. We've noticed Buddy is eating less so now it's time for wet food. The vet said if he isn't better by Friday, he needs to be seen again. My mom's kinda pissed that we ended up with such a sick cat. But I know she wouldn't trade him for the world.

Last but not least, now that I have the baby blanket done, I can continue with my Hanfic Genre Challenge story. I need to finish chapter four, write five and six and have them all posted by Monday at 11:59pm. I think I can do it. If not, I won't be in the running to get voted on. :( So, ya know, I really want to get it done.

That is it for now. I need to get writing. Wish me luck.

[EDIT]: I wrote this at, like four in the morning. But before I could post it, my battery kicked the bucket. Now that the iPod is charged, I'm posting it.

So I'm just now laying down to go to sleep. I was thisfuckingclose to finishing the baby afghan that I'm making for my cousin's wife. While I went to see if I needed to bind off special because I'm using circular needles, my mom decided to measure the blanket. Well, when I came back, five or six stitches had come off the needles and had unraveled almost two full stripes. I had to rip out almost everything I had worked on today in order to fix it. My mom went to bed before I noticed what happened so she doesn't know. But ugh!!!!!! I can't believe it!!!! I was so close to being done it's not even funny! Grrrrrr!

But it's okay. I'll get it done. I'll probably have it finished by tonight if all I do is knit all day. The shower's on Saturday so I really need to get it done. I have no fear that I won't. And after I get it done, I can go back to writing for the Hanfic Genre Challenge. I have the ending all figured out. Now I just need to get there.

That is all for now. I need sleep.

So I haven't been working on my HGC fic so much right now. Mike's birthday is tomorrow and he won't let us buy him anything. So I decided to make him a scarf, except I just barely got the yarn for it and I still have 5 and 1/2 feet to knit.

Also, my cousin's baby shower is a week from Saturday. I'm knitting a baby blanket for her. I have about 6 - 10 inches to go. I'm not really sure b/c I haven't measured it lately. So I've got to spend most of my time right now on those and then I can get back to writing. Maybe when I take breaks from knitting, I can write. You know, alternate between the two.

Anyway, I've got to get back to knitting if I want to get Mike's scarf done in time.

Wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed.

So, this week has been very exciting so far. On Monday my dad has his replacement hip replaced. No, I'm not kidding. The hip they put in him last year was recalled so they had to put a new one in. But my younger sister Vanessa — Teeny Tiny Andrew's mom — says Dad's doing good and he should be home in a few days.

Vanessa also told me that the day my dad had his surgery was the day our new niece Makenzie Marie was born.

Also found out from my aunt that my older sister Jessica has heard both heartbeats. Yes, both. She's having twins.

Also, I get to see Jaci's new apartment on Friday. If she has the money, she's going to take me out for dinner for my bday. It'll be fun. Maybe I'll get to see Dora the Doggie.

Then on Saturday my mom and I are going to petco or petsmart to get ready for a new kitty. Then we'll go to the Concord-Merrimack County SPCA to adopt a new cat. I have my eye on a little cutie named Buddy. But we don't know if we'll get him that day since they have to approve our adoption application. But here's a picture of my little Buddy.

Ain't he cute? He reminds me of my sister's cats.

Okay, on to Saturday night. The whole gang is going out to Newicks for my birthday dinner on my actual bday. I can get my meal free or up to ten dollars off. It's our new family tradition.......well since last year when Newicks came to Concord.

Anyway that's my update on my Birthday Week.

Love always,

So my brother's fiancé had a baby girl yesterday. Her name is Mackenzie Marie. That makes me an aunt 5 times over. Then in late August / early September I'll be an aunt twice b/c my sister is having twins. My family is getting huge!

Also, my dad had his recalled hip replacement taken out yesterday and a new one put in. Hopefully it won't be another one that gets recalled. This is his second hip replacement in less than a year. He's old and has a list of health problems the length of my arm. I really hope this works out for him.

Well, that is all for now. I'll talk to you later.

My sister was supposed to have her second ultrasound done today, but she hasn't called us yet. That either means something's wrong like the pregnancy wasn't viable or we're last on her list to inform of good news. It's probably the first one. Usually if it's good news, she calls when she's leaving the doctor's.

Lets keep our fingers crossed.

Apparently Nani is doing better. So that's good. She's out of ICU now, but I don't know when she'll be going home.

Michaels is having a dope sale on yarn this week and hopefully I'll be getting some for my Mindless Knitting, TV Watching, Super Scraps Afghan. I started it today. It's looking good so far.

Also, the other day when I went to michaels I got a 40% off coupon. Plus there was another one in the sale papers today! I'm rockin with the coupons this week. Hopefully I can get some more circular needles and lots of little balls of yarn to play around with for this afghan, baby afghan. Now shhhhhhh. I'm not supposed to tell anyone but............... My older sister Jessica is pregnant with twins! But we're not supposed to tell cuz she's less than 7 weeks and they've had a difficult time getting to this point. But anyway, I've taken a little time off from the KNITS for Kids thing to work on the baby blankets. My mom is also knitting a baby blanket.

Also, I want to start looking at cats for adoption. I know it seems really early, but I've been preparing for Logan's early demise since she was about a year old and we found out she had a heart murmur. Also, I've been wanting to get another cat since we put MnM down. And I don't know, but I think being with Logan when she passed helped give me, like, instant closure or something. I dunno. Maybe I just really miss her company and her bedtime cuddles. I kinda feel like I need a replacement.

See, the thing is, I'm disabled and can't work. Basically I'm home alone all day and my kitties were the ones that kept me company while everyone is at work. Now I don't have that. I've actually resorted to sleeping with my Clark's Trained Bear: Soggle aka Soggie Bear. Then tonight my mom's friend Mike brought me 2 cat Beanie Buddies telling me that he knew he could never replace Logan but hopefully these would help. He's a sweet guy. Now I know why my mom has been friends with him since high school :)

I'm off to sleep now.
Sweet dreams F-listers

I'm very sorry that I broke the rules and did not post something happy yesterday. But we were quite busy with shopping for birthday presents, going to the birthday party, then buying Christmas presents, so I did not have the time. But I'm making up for it by posting what made me happy yesterday AND today. =)

Day #5 (yesterday)
     What made me happy yesterday was seeing baby Lily open the present we got her for her first birthday. It was a stuffed animal, a sheep with her baby and it was the softest thing ever! But Lily's favorite parts of the present were the ribbon and tissue paper. But that's not all that surprising b/c she's only one year old. She was completely cute and that made me smile.  =)

Day #6 (today)
     Today what made me happy was going to Mulligan's with Mom, Jeff and Mark. Jeff and Mark go to Mulligan's for breakfast just about every Sunday. And they always get the same waitress! This was Mom's second time and this was my first time going there. The place was really nice and quiet and calm, and the food was delish! I had to bring most of it home b/c I got a Club omlette and they make them with 3 xtra large eggs, it was HUGE!!! It doesn't even really look like I ate any of it b/c it's so big. But it was yummy with bacon, turkey, cheese, and tomatoes in it. Hence why it's called "The Club."

So that is my happiness post.
I hope everyone is having a good weekend.
I'll talk to you later!

So today I've come to the conclusion that I like the name "Shep." I've come to this conclusion by remembering that on one of the very early seasons of E.R. Carol went with this paramedic named Shep. I liked him. Until he got all violent. And he made that stupid comment about suicide. But yeah, other than that.

Also, does anyone else but me think it was entirely a bad decision for Zac to name the baby John? As in, Where did Johnny go? o.0

tis all.

p.s. I totally got a Webkinz.
He's a BOY panda named Moo Shi.
Plus I'm obsessed with playing Cash Cow and Stack 'Em Up Solitare on www.webkinz.com
And, hello! Imagination Station Village has the bestest / softest stuffed flamingo EVER and I'm totally gonna buy it. *nods*

Really. The end.

My sister posted this bulletin on myspace @ 12:28pm

so lil man is doing AWESOME! they took his CPAP (the tubes in his nose) out yesterday and he has been breathing 100% on his own which also means that he will not have to go back on it again!!! they also removed him from the lights cause he isnt yellow anymore. soon he will be off of the caffine and when gets off of that they will be able to see if he has sleep apnea which hopefully he doesnt and wont have cause if he does then he will be there longer. he hopefully will be able to come home in 3 weeks!! but lil guy has to gain weight in the incubator (which he has been) and gain outside in a regular bed as well. if he can stay the right color then they will be taking him out of the inclosed incubator soon. his belly also needs to digest his food better cause right now he is having a lil bit of a hard time getting it to digest thru large intestine but it is getting there. he needs to be able to either breast feed or bottle feed before he can go home.

thats all that really needs to happen before he can go home:) so hopefully he stays doing good and then we can take our man home:D YAY! he will be a week old tomorrow:) time goes by fast already lol
Thank You to all of you who have showed you care:) It means a lot to Tim and I.

Here's a new picture courtesy of Nessa's myspace:

So Andrew DID have to be put on a breathing tube.
In the first, like, 36 hours of life he lost 6 oz.
But Nessa is out of the hospital and staying at the Ronald McDonald house so she can stay in Bangor and keep an eye on her teeny tiny son.
Everyone is doing well, tho.
Andrew's only problem is that he was born 2 months early and his teeny tiny lungs don't like that so much.
But everything is going well.
I wish I was in Bangor to see everyone.
I miss them.

I'm still so fucking tired from my Hanson weekend. Crap. It's been almost a week and I still want to just curl up on the couch and not move. I have all my hanson weekend photos uploaded to the computer, but I need to get the energy to actually post my long ass report of the weekend. It was pretty interesting. I stole cups. and Aura peed in my bathroom.

This will all make sense once I get to posting about the trip and everything.

Right now, I need to go eat something and.....yeah, that's about it.
Can you be hungover from one wine cooler?

As you guys may have read, I'm now the proud new aunty of a little baby boy. =)
Here's Andrew's first picture....

Ain't he the cutest?!

15 inches long

My younger sister Vanessa went to the hospital on Friday night. She was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia. (no clue if I spelled it right) The doctors were giving her medication to lower her blood pressure. They told her if they couldn't get it under control, they'd have to take the baby by c-section. Nessa wasn't due until June 26th.

So yesterday morning my little nephew was born. He's in the NICU. As of yesterday, he was breathing on his own with a little oxygen tube in his nose, but sometimes he'd stop breathing, which is common for preemies. The doctors said if he continued to do this tho, they'd have to tube him. No word yet today.

Other than being 2 months premature, my little nephew is happy and healthy it seems. Nessa was still sick yesterday so she wasn't allowed to go see Andrew. Hopefully today she is better and she'll get to hold her son for the first time. I'm sad that I missed out on the birth of my little nephew, but I'm just grateful that everything seems to be going okay so far. Keep your fingers crossed.

love always,
amanda: jaclyn's twin sister

[p.s.] I'll write about hanson later, after I get my pictures uploaded. =D
