"Our third grandson Eli John, arrived on May 31st. He was 2 weeks overdue!
We arrived home last night (Sat) after four days in Brisbane.
It was great being there to see him, but sad to leave knowing it will be at least a month before we go back there…"
"I'm a grandmother, again!
Yesterday (May 18th) Michelle had her baby boy. He was born at 12 49pm. His name is Xander William, he was 51cm long and weighed 3.7 kilos.
It was a very quick labour and birth, they were both so well that the hospital…"
"Almost time for the two babies. Rebekah is due on Thursday and Michelle five days later. No sign of them yet. By this stage Michelle had already had Asher, as he was 10 days early.
I talked to Rebekah via Skype, last night for Mother's Day and…"
"Good luck to your daughter with her decision. My children didn't really have to make a decision like that, with a University five mins drive away (except in peak hour traffic), it was easier for them to apply to attend that one and live at…"
"I know what you mean, my baby turned 20 about 4 weeks ago. My son is turning 27 on Thursday.
Work is Ok at the moment. I am even getting used to Wednesdays. Our difficult boys are settling down so the room is a lot calmer. Our Mondays have gotten…"
"I havn't been to the movies since just after Christmas when we went to see the Sherlock Holmes movie. I was given two tickets in Gold Class for Christmas, by the two girls I worked in the room with, and we had to use them. We had wanted to see…"
"Yes, I had a good weekend, it just wasn't long enough. On Sat night we babysat Asher. He was so good for us. He is 19 months in four days.
My Friday shift was really good. There were a couple away and that always makes a difference. Today was…"
Getting closer to the new grandbaby. How is everyone holding up?
Didn't get the postition I wanted, but have applied for another one, just this week.
The last day of school is May 31st. Ellen will graduate on the 30th. She'll be attending Biola, a christian college, here in California, She'll be living on campus. She was able to get funding to pay for what we couldn't. No loans! : )
Hope your M-i-L is feeling better. My aunt is finished with her treatments and will be retesting to see how they did. I hope we hear great results.
Thanks you for the Easter wishes. I got home the day before so my sister-in-law gave us Easter lunch after we attended church. Her son went on a trip with school, so he was showing us his pictures. He did a pretty good job for a young boy of fifteen.
My Aunt is looking good and gaining weight back. She has new reactions to the chemo with each session, but nothing that knocks her down.
Still waiting see hear if I got the new position. They said we would hear when we got back, it's Wed. and no word.
My goodness what a lot to deal with. It makes you just want to go in and hold the babies and take a nap with them. : )
Didn't get out to the movies on that Monday off, but I did get out this last Sunday. Went with a friend to see the Artist. I liked it.
After two years I am done sorting through my mom's paper work. I think I'll keep what I have left for about two more years and then get rid of it all. Just don't want any legal stuff comming up and not have the records. My husband wants me to sort out the things in the paid storage space. I'll have to make my brother take some of her things or pass them on. My main thing is to go through her many boxes of photos.
Tonight is my book club dinner. I am in charge of table decor. It will be the English country side. We read the book, Major Pettigrews Last Stand.
Yes I agree it is always nice to have advance notice. I'm really not a last minute person. I do get called the same day to come in early some times. I have made it a rule not to plan anything for the am.
The kids get to travel a lot, that nice. I sure hope mine will be able to see the world.
My Aunt wont start her second round on Monday due to her platelettes being down. No word yet on when they will test her again.
I have Monday off for Presidents Day. I'm hoping to get a hold of a friend and catch a movie.
The water leak was found under the foundation in our spare room. The pipe had two pin hole leaks.
My son Just celebrated his 21st. birthday. Two adults gave him beer as a gift. I really didn't care for that. i would not buy a twenty one year old alcohol. Of course he thought I was being judgemental.
Sounds like your always going to be busy at work.
My aunts first round of chemo treatment went well. The next one starts on the 20th.
Jim and I celebrated our 29th Annv. on the 12th. We went to a swing concert and dessert at our church, it was a lot of fun.
Take care. I'll try not to stay away again for so long.
I have not been to a baby shower in a long time. We have been on wedding lists, but not in the inner circle for the baby showers. Our friends have been males.
Looks like we have a water leak somewhere in the wall/foundation. I could hear a sound as if water was on like the sprinklers. We are going to have to have someone come out and find it. Who knows how much that is going to cost? No damage that we can see but it is trickling out of one of are drainage pipes that leads to the gutter out front. We have a general idea of where it is leaking.
Glad to hear that the surgery went well for your M-i-L. When I have time off for Easter I'm going to stay with my aunt again. She will have started her chemo my then.
Been back for a while and just been lazy about getting on line.
Do they know what the baby is?
My visit with my aunt was nice. She will be having chemo treatments starting the end of Feb. She needs to gain weight. Her cancer is stage four. I am not sure of the details yet. i didn't want to drill her with a lot of questions since she is just dealing with it. I'll talk to my other aunt and find out how much they hope the chemo will do.
I'm back to work and there are still several of days of this month and next, then we will have two weeks off for Easter.
Thanks for the Christmas wishes, we had a good two days.
Now things are just getting yuckey.
My mom's sister has not been feeling well and went into surgery on the 26th to remove a mass. They found cancer and will have a plan next week. I am going up there to visit so i wont be on line till after th 9th.
My husband is having car trouble and it is in the shop. They couldn't find what is wrong with it. He knocked over the mail box while moving around a lift that he had for work.
Ellen just crunched the show car that my mom left her. She is driving it while she is on break and she took it to the craft store and it didn't lock into park. It rolled a long way and hit a truck. She is just sick about it. My son took it out for a spin yesturday and said oh Yeach it was acting funny while i had it out and I thought it was just not going into park the first time because it was an old car. Oh My Gosh!, if he only would of said something this would never had happened.
Where was his commen sense that that wasn't right?
Congrats on the new postition! What do the kids want first, boy or girl? My husband wanted a boy for the big brother protection thing. Not that he has had to really do any of that for his sister yet. He does go for her side, if she is in trouble with us, which is not often.
