Some Updatey Things

I never realized how frustrated I would be if a post I spent time and heart and energy on -- a post I really liked -- were suddenly to be deleted.  Did this happen to anybody else yesterday?  With the Blogger interruption?  My Bigger Picture Moment is just gone.  Disappeared forever.  (If you happen to remember it word-for-word so I can re-post it, I'll initiate you into my BFF club.  The perks are really great here: daily access to unlimited whining!)  Plus, I feel sad that your thoughtful comments are gone now, too. 

I'm all adither about it.

(Is 'adither' a word?  Or a form of a word?  Do you know what I mean, in any case?)

Lauren's surgery went so well this week!  I'm working on a more complete post to re-cap it in case somebody ever searches for ear tubes to help toddler's hearing or something, but I needed to let you all know that it's over, and it was good.  Thank you for your thoughts and prayers!  I kept thinking all during my incessant worry that I don't know how people do this when their child is facing something truly serious or frightening.  And then I felt your kind thoughts calming and loving us from afar -- and I know they helped, just as they would in bigger scenarios.  I'm rambling.  But thank you!

Remember this adorable puppy?


I do -- I see him several times a week. And not in my own home, thank goodness! He is too cute to deny, but I think all of our collective puppy-dog-eyes convinced my dad (in whose yard the puppy magically appeared a few days ago) to keep the durn thing. His granddaughters are delighted, Justin's mollified, and I'm relieved. I don't know how long I could have withstood the puppy-pressure.

Here's something exciting: on Wednesday, we'll know the gender of this tiny baby.  Already!  I'm quite adither about that, too.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, no matter what it brings your way, be that sweet puppies or lost posts (grrr...)!

  1. I lost a post, too. They claim they're going to be restoring them over the next little while, though!

  3. So glad the surgery went well! And so excited to find out the gender of your little babe...I'm hoping it's a boy, only so I can tell my hubby not to fear, that a boy after two girls really IS possible :)

  4. My birth announcement post (and all the comments!) got deleted. Not sure when I'll get a chance to re-announce his birth. :(

  5. I'm still hoping they will recover things (but I haven't seen the post I wrote Tuesday that was supposed to go up later today.

    I did have a copy of yours (it was still in my reader.) I just emailed it to you.

  6. Oh man, I was so close to joining your BFF circle! I had kept the tab open forever trying to post a comment and finally gave up and shut it this morning. So close!
    Glad the tubes in the ears went well! And glad that puppy is close but not too close!
    Have a great weekend!

  7. Amy - I'm hoping to prove the same thing to *my* husband :)

    Jamie - Hooray! I didn't even think about the readers! You're an official BFF -- when can you come over and play? :)

    Londa - Aw, heck. You can come too :) Anybody who leaves a hopeful tab open all night is a keeper for sure!

  11. I am jealous that you got your bigger picture moment back, lucky girl! And how exciting to learn the baby's gender. We still have two weeks to go and I am getting very excited.

Hmm...And how did that make you FEEL?
