We are about to start week 3 of complete bed rest for Rebecca. Today starts week 37 in this pregnancy. She goes to the hosp. every other day for a non stress test and blood work. The Dr. would like to hold out until week 40 if she can. Becca is trying really hard to be pleasant and put on a happy face. It's hard for her. Miss Mim and The Dude are doing ok. Becca is telling them that Mommy is "sick" and will get better soon. It's a balancing act between what is best for the baby and for the Mommy. So we wait. I am doing everything I can to help their little family maintain their routine. The kids get to school and get picked up. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners are made. They get lots of hugs and play time. Bed time stories are read. Jason and I are getting the laundry done. Other household tasks are getting done. Jason has been working from home as much as he can. He lets the kids play in his office when he is in there and he plays with them every chance he gets. And so we wait.

We are about 1 month from the arrival of our new grandson. He is doing well but, Mommy isn't. She is on complete bed-rest. It's been about a week and she is going stir crazy. The little guy needs to cook for another month and then everything should be ok.

I can't believe it. I am finally able to get back into this site. As I am sure you know, I have not posted here since July. The reason being I was not able to get on the site. None of my pass words worked. It was crazy! I finally got it figured out. So, now I am back (I hope)
As you can see someone is happy.
Well maybe two little people. ;) I have been doing a fair bit of traveling lately. I have been west as far as Idaho an as far east as Cape Cod. I have met some wonderful cousins I never knew I had.
And some cousins I have known for years.
I got to see some old friends too. But, most of all I am glad to be home.
I haven't posted here for a while because I could not get into the site. BuT, yesterday my password worked again for some strange reason. So I posted to this blog and put up some pictures. But this morning they are not here. I am, to say the least, confused. If you still read this blog and saw yesterdays post please let me know. You could even say hi if you are still reading this blog. That way I'll know who is still here. Thanks!

We had a wonderful 4th of July. Miss Mim and the Dude rode their balance bikes in our local parade. They were so cute. It was so hot the fire dept. opened up a hydrant to spray the kids down. (pics to follow, when I figure it out again) In the afternoon we went to a cookout at daughter #2's house. It was great. But, I must thank G-d for air conditioning. It hit 102f. Today is going to be hotter. These days it's air conditioned house to air conditioned car to air conditioned where ever and then reverse the process. I know how the wicked witch in the wizard of oz felt. We are "melting".

In honor of Fathers Day

It's Fathers Day. Hard to believe we are half way through another year. Time moves so quickly, at least for me. I remember my mother telling me that the older she got, the faster time seemed to pass. I don't believer her back then. Now I know how right she was.So, in honor of Fathers Day.... A couple of pics. These are some of my favs The program won't let me add any more pics. So enjoy these. More later

I have been looking back at how much Miss Mim and The Dude have grown.
These are Miss Mim. Below are The Dude.
They are the most amazing people. And, soon they will be joined by another little one. Just the thought of that thrills me. My life has taken so many twists and turns, some good some bad. They have made me who I am. Thank you to all the people I love. You are the joys in my life.
