Been a week!

How do people do this every day? I have to admit, computer problems have kept me a little busy, along with celebrating the holidays ... and there will most likely be more setbacks in the weeks to come. We are expecting a new grandson on January 2nd! Luke Alexander will be delivered via C-section next Friday! Unless Mommy goes into an early labor ... Luke is in the breech position, and my daughter has done everything possible (moxie sticks, chiropractic, handstands in the pool, acupuncture, you name it!) to get the little stinker to flip, but he's not having any of it. She was scheduled for an inversion last week, but the doctor decided against it because he's (a) too big, and (b) there weren't enough "pockets" of amniotic fluid to move him around in there. So, unless he flips into the right position before she has the section ... I guess that's the way he is making his entrance. Our daughter was so upset - had a midwife, doula, all of that ... but keeping baby and mommy healthy and safe is the most important thing.

So I've been busy ...

Reading OTHER people's blogs, that is! There are so many interesting people out there that I completely forgot about posting anything on my own blog. I check it once in awhile to see if anyone is "following" my blog ... I guess I'm just not followable! Of course, to be honest, what I have put on here isn't that exciting - I probably wouldn't follow it myself ... I'll get better as time goes on.

Today is a day for wrapping up the last of the gifts - and spending the rest of the day in the kitchen. Doing the traditional sugar cookies, peanut butter balls, all the stuff my kids like and I end up eating the most of!

It is snowing ... again. I love this time of the day ... normally, the walkers would be out in full force, but this morning the weather has convinced them all to pull that blanket over their heads again and snuggle in ...
