We've landed in Duckville

Wah, wah, wah. . . back to luke warm.  Oh well.  My Mom seemed about as happy to see me as if I were from the IRS.  She did seem to appreciate the cookies I made and the eggplants and tomatoes I brought her from our garden.

Sh/cm seemed to get along with everyone well.  My brother-in-law talked to him a lot (and loudly! as he is apt to do)  I played with my niece and nephew: they loved the gifts I brought (the trick emptying baby bottle was a hit), and we had a fun dance party - my nephew has some sweet moves!

We are exhausted now.  Breakfast in the morning at the "Hole in the Wall" cafe with my cousin's family and my Grandpa and his new girlfriend.

p.s. My sister-in-law just went off the pill and they are trying to get pregnant.  We had a whispered conversation about it, and she said, "Maybe we'll be pregnant at the same time!"  Here's hoping. . .


  1. I hope the rest of the trip goes well. I'm sorry that mom can't seem to express her positive feelings. I know that is disappointing.

  2. I am hoping you beat your sister-in-law to the punch (or pg in this case!)
