Hey Everybody,

First of all-wow! There are so many new people here! So, HI to all of you :)

I haven't been around in awhile because I've had a crazy long month. We went up in mid-May for my sister's baby shower and my father came and stayed at our house to take care of our dogs while we were gone. He was supposed to leave the Monday after we got back, but had some medical issues that kept him here. He ended up staying on our living room floor for a MONTH shocked, which was super hard on everybody. I love my dad, but he's a very emotionally manipulative person so I spent an entire month being reminded of how much his life sucks and how much I don't care (I never care enough)..his medical stuff was fairly minor and got resolved just fine, but he made a huge deal out of it while it was going on, and acted like we weren't doing enough to help him..*sigh* He's difficult, to say the least! My hubby also started his internship, so I've had most of the child and house care by myself..Plus hubby's grandparents have been visiting from New York..and baseball is still going for my older son..So..yeah. I've been go go go GO for a month straight and have been pretty stressed out! My body has been responding in kind, of course, and I'm struggling to recuperate. Haven't totally spun into a flare, but am definitely feeling worn out!

On a better note, though, my sister went into labor last night and had her baby this morning! So I am an auntie again!! Megan Julia was born at 7:25 am, weighing in at 5 lbs 12 oz and 18 inches in length. We are going up this afternoon to stay until Friday and I'm so excited to see her! Unfortunately, it also means that I will be sleeping on the world's most uncomfortable futon for a couple of days..ugh! But, it's worth it to see my new little neicey:)

Anyway...just wanted to pop in and give a little update and see how you were all doing. :-)

Congrats, Aunt Sleepy!  Babies are wonderful, aren't they?  It kind of helps put things in perspective.  I bet she is gorgeous and I do want to hear all about her when you get home. 

Your life has been very busy but hopefully it will become more "normal" when you get back.  It's great that you didn't go in a flare!  You are doing something right. 

Have a wonderful visit with  your sister and her new little bundle.

There's nothing like a new baby to make everything right with the world!  Congrats, Auntie and am glad you are warding off a flare.
