Happy Birthday Katie

A recap of twenty-nine years ago today. The birthing of a Pugpie.

My Mom and Dad were already on the scene waiting for the arrival of our first child. They had accompanied me to Publix on the afternoon of the 30th to pick up our black eyed peas and rice. While checking out I noticed a funny pulling sensation and then felt a rush of liquid. Oops. Clean up. Isle one. Mom and Dad hurried me to the car and we went home to retrieve your Dad. He wasn't there. He was at Tom's. Tom didn't have a phone and he lived down a looong bumpy dirt road. We came back to the house to drop off Mom and Dad, Carl in tow, and he had the gall to ask if he had time to take a shower. Turns out he did but I wasn't sure about that so he took a verbal lashing. Now known as the pre delivery fight. These are worse than pre trip fights although easier to win. Seriously, who can argue with a woman in labor.

Odd things in the sky today

In addition to seeing snow this morning and a beautiful foggy sunrise, this blimp floated over me when I went out for lunch today. Photo ops everywhere! We've had a lot of helicopter traffic tonight too and a sonic boom of sorts this afternoon. It sounded more like a sound effect from Star Wars than a boom though. I am glad that the Post Master confirmed hearing it too or I would not have believed my ears. Camp Blanding testing starships maybe?



Snow at our house

AKA dry wall dust. This confused Mom when she looked out the window today. She knows it doesn't snow in Florida. Carl has discovered a new way of decorating for the holidays

These are my sweet nieces. I met them and their parents and my sister in Lakeland for lunch and to do the G'ma swap. They are growing up so fast. Mom is settling in. We had a visit from Jesse and Leaa and Livi today. That always makes for a wonderful day. Mom has never seen a more advanced baby than Liv. She is indeed a miracle.
