he bid on a house yesterday, and the offer was accepted on their drive home... about 10 hours in the car in one day. bro got an earful of sighs from my dad about moving out of the "hellhole" my parents have, and my mom groaned her way up most every stair case, but the trip went ok. what they shared of the business details are good; details fell nicely into place, including the sellers renting back the place for a couple months until bro gets to move back. i'm wondering if htey put the house on the market early not counting on it selling so quickly - its been listed barely a week. they are relcoating out of state for business as well.

and hten, hubby and i gave my parents new cell phones. we all got tired of listening to my mom sigh about finding new ones, since their current carrier is pulling out of hte market. now i get to listen to her sigh about how to figure out the damn thing. its quite a step up from what she's had...

in other words, same ol', same ol'... ;-)

Hopefully, all the hoopla over the Royal Baby might finally put Trayvon and all the BS, to rest....

And the cat is hanging tough. I am so glad she hid the morning of her scheduled execution. Have reduced the antihistimine to about 1 dose every 3 days. See where that takes us.

When my eldest was born the OB mentioned that there was an uptick in births ( of women who were otherwise ready)at the full moon and if there was a high pressure system. I never checked it out to see if there was scientific or statistical validity, but it sounded plausible. There was a short piece on one of teh website that this month's moon was the 2nd closest it would be to earth so I made the connection.

Now that I am reading this I remember when I sent to the hospital to have my baby (many years ago), the nurses said "Oh no not another one!". They were running out of rooms.

Hmmmm, I'm going to look online to see if there was a full moon that day.

Now you made me look. I remember the high pressure system because it was very cool with brilliant cloudless blue skies, but the moon was 3/4 full and waxing when I went into to labor and 86% full when she was born.( she took her time about things)
