Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

Another day of domestic bliss. Except for that excitement in Wal-Mart, when Sydb thought maybe she'd had a contraction, but then not much came of it when we got home. I know Sydb is impatient for baby to come, and Wolf was so ready not to go back into work tomorrow. So there's a feeling of edgy anticipation in the air.

We had yummy food today, and saw a movie, and cleaned a bit in the living room, and Wolf remembered he had another hub, so I can be online while Sydb is online - in the same room.

But still no baby, and I think the wait is getting to Wolf.

Barbar is doing better, slowly, but there is the usual problem with medications -- the IV glucose raised her blood sugar too high; the insulin lowered it too much, but they apparently have that st raightened out again. And Bebe is frustrated, because he tries to tell them what he's learned from previous hospital visits, but he's only an untrained husband, no medical training, so the doctors and nurses ignore him.

The boys are enjoying Texas. Critter has sent me a note telling me his email address on msn, and Granmommy sent me a recipe that I left at home. I don't know if we'll be making it this week, however, since Wolf and Sydb have already shopped for groceries.

The obedience class is on W ednesday this week, since Thursday is a holiday, so I planned to go home mid-Tuesday and come back after the obedience class, rather than make two trips this week. I don't have much laundry or errands to occupy me while I'm home -- just going through the mail, filling out insurance forms and possibly depositing client checks. I hope to have time to copy munches from the desktop to a CD for putting onto this machine. We'll see.

Meanwhile, trying to help Sydb and Wolf prepare without going bonkers with the waiting.

A challenge, I think.

Did I meet Sydb and Wolf the last time I was down there?

sydb42 tells me that you met both of them, and played a game with them. Perhaps you might recognize her or darkwolf69 - they both have face shots as their default pictures right now.

The boys are enjoying Texas.

Out of curiosity, where in Texas?

My parents live in San Antonio. The boys usually go to stay with for three to four weeks each summer.m

I remember visiting San Antonio on a youth choir tour. The river walk is cool! I wasn't too impressed with the Alamo. Especially since it was a possible $50 fine to pick dead leaves off the bushes on the grounds. Although the tree whose branches had gotten so heavy they had to be supported with metal poles was interesting.

I think the Alamo is moving, if you keep in mind its nature as a memorial to those who died there.

They were brave men and women who believed very strongly in what they were doing, and died for what they believed.

We may look back now and question many of their beliefs politically, but the strength of their convictions is still something to admire.

The alamo always impressed me. I'm sorry it didn't affect you the same way.À

I know the history. I grew up in that state. :)

Why the Alamo didn't affect me so much was it felt too commercialized. All the shops, etc., seemed to dilute the soldiers' sacrifice. To me, anyway.

If you get a chance to go back, try spending time in the church building. Pick a spot, and just read the names. I found it very moving.

Memorials are pretty subtle.

It's a shame about the commercialism, but it also pays for the upkeep.l

If you find yourself at loose ends Tuesday after bowling, feel free to come over and we can watch a movie or something. :)

I'd like that. That is, assuming that my schedule doesn't get changed by Roo.

Well, yeah. That caveat is always understood. :)
