First of all, Happy Veterans Day! As a daughter of a man who served in Korea and Vietnam, I am grateful!

I have missed being on here so much and I know I promised to catch up with everyone this week but....a funny thing happened on the way to my blog....

First, as previously reported, I was knee deep in anti-biotics courtesy of Bronchitis and on top of that I am entering the first stages of menopause.

All forms of pity are welcome.

Secondly, mine and Ed's God daughter was born yesterday.

I'd like to officially welcome to the world our beautiful Cailyn Marie born 11/10/10 @ 9:03 a.m. weighing in at 7 lbs. even, 18 1/2 inches long.

She is the closest thing we have to a grandchild -- and we are madly in love with her!

I'd like to thank her parents (our oldest "son" and his lovely wife) for giving us this gift.

Okay lets take things in order:
1. eat yogurt with those anti's. Yeast is a nasty thing.
2. welcome to the world of personal summers and mood monsters. By a shirt saying you have joined our club it will say you a lot of explaining.
3. Oh what a joy she looks to be. Congrats to your son and you. I see someone chomping at the bit to spoil :D

Congratulations! The baby is beautiful.

Sorry that you have bronchitis, yuk. And as for menopause, yuk yuk. Why do our hormones turn on us like that?

Hope you feel better.
