Home Again, Home Again
-My mom as we pulled into the carport after every trip we ever went on in our life
Welp, I am safely back home in Pennsylvania after my weekend in Louisiana. I was at my mama & Dad's house getting ready for and throwing a shower for Mary Lou, the great baby-grower. Adam and Powers, in my stead, went fly-fishing, ate Smith cheese-filled sausages every night for supper, and went to bed by 9 p.m. Ol' Grandpa Jennings... I love him.
It was 'Vonderful to be in Ruston for the weekend. I did realize, however, that I have totally become a heat-wimp yankee! I was not ready, not acclimated to the humidity & heat, and so, when Mary Lou and I went and walked her pregnant belly, I was sweating like a stuffed pig in a fireplace on the equator. I did brag about our mild summer temps up here and they said, "Yeah, yeah...we'll call you in February."
Gustav came and my crazy middle brother drove right to it. While they were having the contraflow traffic out of New Orleans, Gabe was driving from Austin, Texas towards South Louisiana to work and do some catering for the utility workers who will be down there for the next 4 weeks possibly. The electricity and all is a mess after the storm so it will be a while before all is set straight. But praise the Lord, the levies held.
Tonight, Bethany & I went and saw baby Addy. I cannot wait for Bethany to post pictures but just get ready to Oooh and Aaaah. Literally, such a tiny, darling little nugget of a sweet girl.
Sarah said she had such an easy delivery. She got the epidural and 45 minutes later, Addy was born. Go Sarah, you labor and delivery machine. Must've been all that good birth coaching, right Josh?
Hope you have a great Wednesday night. It's trash night here so we should probably go get ready for that. Why, oh why do I always remember trash night just as I'm getting comfortable. One of those crazy Murphy Law things.
