Thanks for the posts :) The last few days, I haven't felt well at all. Just a flare of my usual stuff...but I just haven't had the strength to get on the computer much. You are right...the kids take every last little bit of my energy. They keep me going, definitely, but it's exhausting... Like you said, it's a job that doesn't have a "quitting time!" -- it's all day, every day :) By the time I do those last minute things -- pick up around here, finish reading stories, get clothes out for tomorrow, etc - I literally collapse into bed.
I loved what you wrote about
your grandson and nursing :) Brought back some VERY fond memories. I nursed all six of the boys; in fact, for 10 years - there was not a time that I wasn't nursing and/or pregnant. With having so many kids and such, nursing was such a special time for me and baby. I LOVED the "Grammies spickets are dry..." comment. Love it! I think we share a very similar sense of humor. I'm sure it's going to be tough for your daughter to go back to work tomorrow. I feel for her, definitely.
Wow, I can't believe you had a heart attack when you were 34...that's scary! I'm hoping and praying that your girls will escape all that stuff. And your brother's boys, too...
Well, my friend, I need to try to catch up on some stuff here...and then see what the day will bring.... I hope you are feeling ok today; and I'll talk to you more later! (I care, too!) --Tina
