My gosh yall are some postin people. I see the baby has arrived but I could not quite catch up on the rest 100 pages...My eyes hurt too bad...so congrats to coach and wife and of course the baby girl! I know they are over the moon!
The movie we saw last night was actually pretty creepy. cliché yes but that's what you sadly have to expect from current horror,BUT it was one of the better ones I have seen lately! There is another one coming out in October called something like "all the boys love Mandy Lane" contrary to the weird title it's not one of "those kinds" its a horror and the previews from it look very good. I want to see it before Halloween,I might have to go with a buddy or by myself because it was a first for brandi to want to see that one last night.okay have to get ready for supper!

Take care, Cetacea. That stomach flu is not fun. Since chemo, my tummy sometimes becomes upset; normally, though, I have a pretty strong stomach. The doctor prescribed Ondansetron which is wonderful for nausea. I LOVE to travel by train. I have been across the US by train and love it, especially when I have a room. It is so handy when the train stays in one place overnight (New Orleans). Oh, don't worry about being schoolmasterish. We all make suggestions to each other about different ways to approach things, whether headaches, stomach flu, or other things, LOL! My energy is still here!!! YAY! I hope we hear soon about Coach, Dr. Wifey, and La Bambina. It is so exciting!

I guess I got a stomach flu or something. Unfortunately my stomach swich back and forward from being upset to being normal. I'm feeling blah! Hope it will be better in a couple days.




I love train trips! Yours sound soo great, did you write a travel journal?

Hopefully I'm able to travel to States again in 2015 (I have to safe money first though!). Whenever I look at my holiday photos from my USA trip last year, I'm having acute wanderlust. Oh, well I have to be patient.



Did you like the movie? I can't watch anything spooky. I get scared sooo easily.

While I watch NCIS or Criminal Minds (more) I will have to look away or switch channels during scenes with the unsub.



I'm with you on this. I get scared too easily. I'm Scaredy cat.



I don't want to sound schoolmasterish but did you check your thyroid and blood pressure?

My mother had migrain and headaches for many years every week (sometimes more than two days/week). Finally she let it checked out and the doctor figured that she had a hyperthyroidism and high bloodpressure. Since she has medication for both, her headaches and migrains almost completely vanished.

Maybe checking this out could help you.



*hugs* I'm soo happy you have your energy back!



*hugs* That sounds great!



Oh, that is soooooooo cool. Congratulation to Ballcoach and his wife.

I wish Little Bambina a great start into this world. May god bless her abundantly.

Ugh ... a bad experience this evening updating my iPad to iOS 7. I think it's sorted out now. It failed a few times before it finally worked---I still don't know what kicked it into finally accepting the update. Thank heaven I backed it up to iCloud just before I attempted the update, 'cause I had to restore from the backup. After my apps reload, I'll have to check and see if I lost anything. I think my photos and contacts came back, but I may have to reload all my music. Bleh! I hate to waste an evening fighting with technology.

Wow.....

Overwhelmed with emotions. That's how I feel....words can't explain it, but I want to try.

Birth.....was unlike anything I could have expected. Seeing the love of my life in labor for 15 hours (5 of those without any painkiller), vomiting the last 10, seeing the baby being born....it was all.....well....almost horrific.

The love of my life was hurting. She was in so much pain because of an accident with her epidural. I kinda felt robbed....all I ever heard was how great the birth process was....and it didn't feel like that to me....

Until I saw my daughter.

When she came out....and they placed her on my wife...when they handed her to me....never has something so light (7.5 pds) felt so heavy....and yet so pure....

I was so humbled to be in her presence....that I literally wanted to crawl under a chair because I didn't feel worthy...it was so emotional....

and all I remember telling myself...with tears coming down my face....is that no one....no one.....deserves all the blessings.....no one deserves to be this lucky....

for I am blessed...

I wanted so long to be a father....I've dreamed of it for nine months....and now I just want to spend the rest of my life being her Dad.....it seems as if nothing else even matters anymore...

My promise to my daughter is this....I will be the man she needs me to be. I will show her what a man is supposed to be....so that she knows what to look for one day....I will teach her to pray...how to win and how to lose...but mostly...through my example I set by how I treat her....I will show her how to love unconditionally....

She was born at 9:46 pm....she was 19 inches and 7.5 pounds...

and it was love at first sight....
