I am still having so much trouble with AOL. To visit everyone's journals I have to hit refresh about 5 times and then it still doesn't always come up. Leaving a comment is not always possible. Sometimes it jumps to a different entry! Weird and totally frustrating. I sure hope it is fixed soon if it is not just my computer.
Today is my youngest son's birthday. How in the world did he get so old when I stayed so young and vibrant? How can he be 31? That would make me either the worlds youngest mother or alot older then I like to think about. Anyway..... I am happy he came into our lives.
His entry into the world was full of drama as the cord was around his neck, he was posterior, not breathing and a pretty but frightening blue. While one team whisked him away, another team did their best to stop my bleeding which I guess was concerning them, but all I could think about was my baby that hadn't cried and no one would tell me a thing no matter how many times I pleaded for information.
Finally in recovery I went in search of my son and found in in the ICU nursery, pinker and breathing. I remember standing at the window listening to them page me overhead to please return to the recovery room, LOL. Rick said it was the last time he was leaving for coffee if I was going to cause all that trouble. They had finally told me he was OK, but I had to see for myself.
Could that really have been 31 years ago. This same child has been giving me scares and worries since his birth. He has been in the hospital for pneumonia, Reyes syndrome, kidney failure, tonsils, and the last time a bicycle wreak. Keeps me on my toes. He is very healthy these days though and still rides his bicycle a easy 40 to 60 miles. He is definitely a keeper.
Right now he is living with us. He gave me the money to finish my house and while I pay him back he gets free rent instead of interest on the loan. Now though he is looking for a new house. Maybe his gramma's as he has a new lady friend and feels cramped here. I don't blame him. I do appreciate his support and he has been my joy.
Back to work tonight. The weekend continued to be busy and with the terrible weather is was real fun......not. 2 more days. Before work I have to get a box for some items I sold. My valentines sale is a success. I haven't been to my MIL's to do a thing since last week. I don't plan on going back unless I have proof the sons have been working there in my absence. I can be stubborn also. Who.....ME! giggle.
Even if I can't leave a comment I have been visiting everyones journals. Hopefully this mess will clear up soon. Any suggestion? Who can I email?
