Among other things...

As an amendment to last week's Glee post, I do have to give them props for breaking out "Conjunction Junction." I forgot about this hilarious addition in the midst of all of all the heady horror.
----------------------------
Last week, two separate couples that we love produced two beautiful, bouncing boys in two successive days. All mamas and all babies are doing well, and we wish them the best. We were able to visit the hometown couple and their little Owen in the hospital the day after he was born!And I didn't drop him or anything! It's unbelievable how tiny and perfect babies are, and that one day they will grow up to be whole entire people that will go to work and drive cars and eat steak. How ridiculous is that?

Is it getting hot in here, or is that just baby fever?
----------------------------
And finally, my parents (unofficially) sold their house. They close sometime in the next thirty days, and I'm feeling a galling mix of both sadness and relief. I am happy that they won't have to worry about the home's maintenance anymore, but how can I say good-bye to my childhood home? I find it impossible to get rid of old birthday and thank you cards, but a whole house? It's going to be hard.

I know exactly what you mean by being hard to give up your childhood house! Of course....rather than give mine up I opted to buy it. Still - I know how strong that connection can be.

We'd love to come see the Jelly and the family! You'll have to let us know when will be a good time. I know with school and a new baby, time is a precious commodity for the three of you.
