One More Time

Sorry, folks, but I’m outta here!

There is so much fun to be had with a blog, but wordpress doesn’t exactly make it easy.  I have set up a new shop (again, I know, I’m sorry) back at blogger and would love to see you there.

Stop by and see the new place.  The decorater has been through and it’s shaping up nicely!

First – I hate politics, and I don’t have all the answers.


I am finding it fascinating that even among conservative Christians people are thrilled about McCain’s running mate.  There is nothing biblical about voting this woman into office, and I stand amazed at everyone’s apparent joy over having a ‘lesser of two evils’.


I really hate faddish sayings, but – How Would Jesus Vote?


Not for either big ticket party, that’s for sure.


If you’d like to just get back to basics, this young lady has written a thoughtful post on the subject from a biblical perspective.

Labor Day Fun!

How long were your labors?

1.  6 hours, 50 minutes of pushing.

2.  6 hours, 10 minutes of pushing.

3.  6 hours, 2 pushes.

4&5 Almost 2 years.

How did you know you were in labor?

1, 2, 3:  When the labor inducing drugs kicked in and I wanted to die.

4&5:  When I was devastated over the possibility of having to call off the adoption over not having fully immunized children.

Where did you deliver?

1, 2:  In the labor and delivery room.

3: In the operating room.

4&5: In a court room in Wroclaw, Poland.


1, 2:  Oh yes, epidural dripping nicely.

3:  Oh yes, epidural flipped wide open, flooding my system.

4&5:  Chocolate, and lot of it.


1, 2: No.

3:  Almost.  After Rose’s heart rate crashed to 7bpm that’s where we were headed, but I pushed her out faster than the OB could cut her out.  Whew!

4&5:  No, although I felt like I had been cut open a few times during the process.

Who delivered?

1, 2, 3: Dr Wonderful.

4&5:  The hand of God via the hearts of my husband and I.
