Hi All,

Have a few minutes to update you on my little Sammy. He came home from the NICU on Sunday evening and I fell instantly in love. He's so tiny and sweet and looks a lot like his daddy. I told my daughter that she took after me, our genes disappear when we conceive...they end up looking like the daddy!!! She had a very difficult pregnancy and all for the little guy looking like daddy!!!! Oh well, Michael is a cutie anyway, so that's a good thing!! LOL

I've been working my tush off doing laundry, making 3 meals...ok, maybe 2, but I've forgotten how much laundry they circulate and food they eat. Last night I roasted 2 fairly large chickens....was looking forward to a chicken sandwich for today....can't get much meat out of two chicken wings!!! Yikes!!! Anyway, I'm just glad I can help out and take some of the load off my daughter.

She was worried that she might lose her job at her school, due to some problems with the T.E.A. and this particular school. Long story short, her job is secure and she can return anytime she wants....great news since she was looking at starting somewhere else in January with no pay or health insurance till then. I say, "Praise God!!" and the Austin Ind. School District!!!

Am escaping from here for a few hours tomorrow. My dearest buddy, Irene, will be picking me up and we'll do a little shopping....need to do some birthday shopping for my almost 5 year old, Zach, and buy Andria a large don't appreciate what you have in your kitchen, till you cook elsewhere!!! LOL

I'll be returning to El Paso Friday afternoon and will miss my babies but life goes on until I see them the next time. Will add pics of my little Austin family next time. Thank you for all your prayers and good thoughts...I greatly appreciate it and am thankful for my wonderful Internet friends...God bless you all.

hey...I never got a large pan!!! I feel jipped :P Thank you so much for putting your life on hold for that week--it is still a blur to me and I think I'm still trying to catch up on my sleep. The boys loved having you here, and even though I was exhausted and bitchy, I was glad you were here as well. Look forward to seeing you...eventually :)
