Hoping and wishing and praying?

Well all that finger crossing and praying for a good outcome seems to have worked.  Yesterday we saw a nice sized baby and as far as I could tell, no sign of the sch.  I can't swear it wasn't there but if it was they sure didn't measure it like they have done in the past.  I am thrilled.  The guys are thrilled.  We have a high level of thrillage.
Introducing the Canadian...minus the SCH

My co-worker's dad died this morning.  He had a stroke 26 months ago and has been sliding downhill for quite some time.  The last three weeks she has been called numerous times to come sit with him because they thought it was time for him to pass.  She is wrung out physically and emotionally and while it's horrible that she lost her parent, I'm glad that he's out of pain and that she can finally get some closure. 

Maternity clothes...how is it possible I need to buy them?  I've been pregnant 85 times.  But alas I gave all of my clothes to my step-daughter when she was pregnant last year.  I got a few things back from her but not enough to last a pregnancy.  I'm not worried about it yet as I'm not showing but might pick up a few things this weekend when we take the boys back to school shopping.  These boys are growing like weeds...they both have outgrown everything, including their socks and underwear.  New clothes are in order and in honor of that we finally bought a real 220V dryer.  After 2 years of hanging clothes and then a year of using a crappy 110V dryer, we can finally do laundry like normal people again.  So all the old clothes are out and the new ones will all be fresh and dried.  Yay. 

On a completely unrelated note, one of my favorite blogs to read, Rasta Less Traveled by Bernadette has become private.  This poor woman has been in India something like 120 days waiting for her son's lungs to develop enough to make the trip home.  Poor lady.  I feel so bad for her and will miss reading her updates. 

And that's it for now.  I have given up hoping that the heat wave will break or the drought will get better.  Neither is going to happen anytime soon.  We even took a walk tonight in the 104 degree heat (yes it is still 104 at 6 pm).  Bring it on mother nature.


  1. UGH. 104. Hope you're feeling more comfortable now! So glad to read about your good outcome ... and for the record, as someone who has several gay couple friends who are grateful parents, I'm completely in awe of you as a generous human being.

    Also? I'm with you, supporting people's rights to think differently, but also mine to act on my beliefs. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Glad to hear that the little nugget is doing well! :)
