Can't Believe That It's Been So LONG.

So blog buds, it's been some time since I've posted. BAD Blogger! I'm kinda in a rut.
Right now, my mom's in the hospital, so, the time factor for creating is minimal. She'll be home possibly today - if she does well. She's 80 years old, with multiple health issues, so any type of surgery sets her back some. She lives alone (her choice) and this means that I have to do all the things she no longer can. See? Time, how it becomes the enemy.

Speaking of time, in the post below, we left Sarah in the aftermath of the baby shower. She's now very ready to deliver. Tapping her fingers impatiently on the counter, trying to hurry this along. I grin, no need to remind her that mother nature is in charge, and all the tapping in the world won't help. It doesn't help that her doctor is on vacation, so even her weekly visits have been postponed unti he returns on the 9th. She's due on the 15th technically, but all first times mom's in thier 9th month feel like they could go earlier. No one really wants to be 10 months pregnant.

I'll do a real post soon, about the time we spent with our oldest granddaughter Isabelle in Indianpapolis. Took some cute photos too. But scooting out for now, gotta catch up and read a few blog buddy posts.

I can see where you are having a time factor problem. I hope your mom heals quickly. I'll keep her in my prayers. I bet you can't wait for that new grandbaby.

Yeah, those ten month pregnancies are the pits. Lets hope for a speedy delivery, but not too speedy, wait until the doc gets back.

I'm glad your mom is recovering well. Keeping my fingers crossed for continued improvement.

Blogging has become my full-time job now. Too damned many talented women out there! Sometimes I want to just back away...very slowly.

Glad to see you pop in! You've been missed.

This is a very trying time in our lives... when we become parents to our own parents. I'm right there with ya in age and circumstance, although I have a teenage daughter. Congratulations on another soon to be born grandchild!
