1. Agree to head up decorations for a church party
2. Hold said party in an enormous basketball court on a $250 dollar decor budget...(thank you appliance store dumpster) using cardboard, paint and tree branches (without putting ANY new holes in the wall)
3. Decorate party for two days straight
4. All the while bending to paint and jumping up and down a stage 67 times
5. Drink only Pepsi Max for both those days
...you will find yourself in the hospital triage in no time.
So even though the party was a total success,
as was my body's ability to not dilate through two days of premature contractions, basically I learned
pregnant chicks need to have more helpers and drink more water when throwing a party.
All is well.
(Though I might be swearing off soda for the remainder of my pregnancy)
