  •  Moon.... I forgot about that... (11+ / 0-)

    The full moon will be on Jan 15 with the last quarter on Jan 24.  She's due on the 23rd.  I was planning on heading down there on the 15th.  I think I'll move it up a day.

    I'm doin' good and I hope you are too.  I think of you often.  Are you getting this miserable weather?  Hope not!


    p.s.  The 20th is looking pretty good, eh?

    •  Well, it didn't make any difference for me; (9+ / 0-)

      both my girls were born under new moons IIRC. But I guess it matters for some.
      I'm doing fine, glad you are too. Yes, we do have this terrible cold, after the big snow. A foot of snow, then the bitter temps. The low last night was about 15 below, with windchills about 40 below. Right now the temp is a balmy 2 below, with windchill merely 20 below. Whoo-hoo!
      When my oldest was born, I had been attempting a home birth. Didn't work, long sad story. But everything else seemed to be broken, too. Our stereo, our washer, our car. Then, when we decided I really had to go to the hospital, it was even colder than it has been lately--windchill of about 50 below. One of my midwives drove us to the hospital, and then on her way home her own car broke down.
      I still feel lucky about the eventual outcome. In two weeks less a day, my oldest will turn 29. She is a peach. So if it's the 20th for you there, you have a good model to follow.
      Of course, no matter when yours is born, she will be wonderful, perfect, and the apple of her parents' and grandmama's eyes. :)
