I just wanted to let you guys know...I love you guys!

I can relate... this is usually one of my first stops, if not THE first, on the advice asking and/or opinion polling.

At least it's warming up, I'll give it that much. I sat on my covered deck in the rain yesterday.

And the sun is coming up earlier -- there's daylight in the sky by 5:30, 6 a.m. now.

I thought it was weird that people showed up at the hospital with basics -- diapers, formula, etc. You'd think they'd know the hospital would have all of that. Wouldn't it?

It's a bit strange but perhaps they heard about it, wanted to do something but didn't know what to do -- so they picked up some items the baby would need.

Knowing how boys are prized over there, I wonder what the response would have been if it was a girl. Just sayin'.

I"m assuming it's either a second child (not allowed), or the mother is very young and didn't realize she was about to give birth (b/c I've had several moms tell me that they thought they were going to have a bowel movement while in labor, but nurses would tell them it just felt like that, that it's really the baby being born).

We had a half day on Friday and off yesterday for the holiday, and it feels like I've been gone for a week. How did this much work crap pile up in such a short amount of time? Yesterday was a holiday for EVERYONE!

<sigh> It's 11:58 PM. Paper is due at midnight. Just sent it. I would do well not to re-check them so damn many times. I'm tired.

There's some kind of time share thing they're advertising on tv.$99.00 for the weekend. Thinking about taking it just for the "vacation" aspect. I wonder how much time I have to spend listening to their BS... I do need a vacation.
