The Grandmothers/Las Abuelitas

The other grandmother has arrived from the Dominican Republic, and now we all await baby's arrival. Since baby has shown no signs of wanting to leave her warm abode, the doctor is taking measures, starting tonight, to make her move on out. If all goes as planned, she should make her arrival tomorrow afternoon or evening.

Please pray with us for a safe delivery. And safe driving for me as I go back and forth tomorrow to the hospital which is 22 miles away.

I brought Grandma Miguelina home and embarrassed myself with my faltering Spanish, but she seems not to mind. I asked her if she would like lunch before we left for the hospital at 7am. She replied, "you mean breakfast??" My Spanish is very rusty!


Is there a word for "the ability to see yourself the way others see you"?

Two Down, One to Go

I know you've been wondering why no new posts from me lately. Or, maybe not. In any case, I've been busy marrying off my youngest child. We've been in Seattle for the better part of a week to accomplish that feat. Lots of family time, eating, and meeting our son's new in-laws. Tomorrow, maybe a little sightseeing.

On my family blog I've posted links to four online photo albums which I'm made to document this event. So have a look if you don't have anything better to do.
