Things have been crazy…

My sister-in-law had her baby last Saturday morning. He’s doing very well. He’s taking formula from a bottle, breathing on his own and is very responsive. He’s quite amazing for a preemie. He scored a 9 out of 10 on the Apgar scale right after his birth, so they all have high hopes for his recovery. By all accounts, he is perfect except for his weight. I am even told that he can lift himself off the mattress and arch his back. The nurses have all told his parents what a “feisty” little guy he is. She is recovering as well, but it was a tough pregnancy and birth.

Around my house, not much is going on. I went to the doctor on Wednesday and heard my baby’s heartbeat for the first time. Kind of weird. Other than my burgeoning size, I’ve had no other pregnancy symptoms. No sickness or anything. So, when I heard the heartbeat, it was like, yes, there is somebody in there!

Just waiting for spring. One more snowstorm, and I think I’m going to go Shining…

I’ve been noticing lots of bumper stickers lately. I’ve come up with the theory that within nine out of ten owners of cars with bumper stickers, there lies the heart of a fascist.

Jerry (dressed as Daphne): Joe, I feel like everyone is staring at me.
Joe (dressed as Josephine): With those legs? Are you crazy?
