Planes, Babies & Automobiles

Yesterday I woke up in a guest bed in Iowa & went to sleep in a guest bed in Nevada. In between times I rode in a van to Minnesota. Sat in an airplane for one hour waiting to be de-iced. Spent an hour in Utah trying to find my connecting flight that had changed airlines & flight numbers & somehow completely disappeared from the computer system. Sat on that runway for an hour waiting to be de-iced. Arrived in Nevada. Drove to California just so I could say I'd been in five states in one day. Drove back to Nevada & crashed in Michelle's baby room. Now it's time for me to do what I came to do. Which is whatever I can to make Michelle feel ready for the baby that will soon be arriving.

The Open Fire

We had chestnuts to roast, but we were all much too lazy to try it. Maybe tonight.

Snowed In

Well, we are stuck in Iowa City for the time being. It's too bad our plans got changed & we probably won't being seeing some friends we had planned to see. Boo hoo! However it feels a bit exciting to be snowed in. I'm feeling incredibly lazy. So lazy that I can't be bothered to post photos right now, but picture a roaring fire, lots & lots of food, family that we don't see nearly often enough & plenty of games!

All I Want For Christmas

Is for someone to pack my bags, clean my house & pay my bills. That's not too much to ask is it? Sigh...I guess I better get off the computer & go get dressed or something.

This little trainee has all the answers already. For instance the minute the baby makes a peep of any kind our trainee knows immediately what she needs. It is always, "Milk, the baby needs more milk, right now!" It doesn't matter if I have just fed her a 5 ounce bottle or if the noise baby made was a laugh. The answer is more milk. It's seems my little trainee doesn't quite believe that I could possibly know how to take care of a baby. I thought all the answers came when the kids became teenagers, not when they are 3 3/4! You know what that means, fun days ahead!

The Weather Outside is Frightful

But the fire is so delightful.
