I stole this from Lana...


You are Justice

Equity, rightness, probity, executive; triumph of the observing side in law.

Justice is about cold, objective balance through reason or natural force. You can't keep smoking and drinking without consequences to your health. It is the card that advises cutting out waste and insists that you make adjustments, do whatever is necessary to bring things back into balance, physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually. It is a card of balance and harmony; if there is imbalance, the correction may
require recourse to the law.

I am a terrible gift recipient

I just realized that I haven't posted anything about the latest gift recieved from my secret pal. I feel just terrible!!! Sadly, I don't have my camera here, so I don't have any pictures, yet...but I will tell you that I got some really cute wool, some dpns, and a customized sock pattern that seems pretty idiot-proof. Well, I hope it's idiot-proof--I have yet to master the art of knitting on dpns. Should be quite an adventure...I'll keep you posted on the progress (once it starts).

It's baby time

No...not me. A friend of mine had her baby yesterday. I was a little jealous of her for several reasons--but not because I want another baby...I'm done with all of that!

She was prego when I met her, and can I just say that you could only tell that she was prego if you saw her from the front or the side. She was a skinny mama-to-be. I, on the other hand, gained at least 65 lbs with each of mine, and I looked like a Weeble.

This is her first child, so when Papa called our house at 7:30 yesterday morning saying, "It's time", I told him that she may not have that baby for another day or two (as it was in my case). Her water hadn't broken yet, and she was still able to walk around and talk through the contractions.

Long story 3:00 I stopped by the hospital to lend them my video camera. Papa met me outside, and I asked how things were going. He says to me, "She's here." I didn't understand at first, because obviously I knew she was at the hospital. "No--SHE'S here. Syl had the baby."

So much for shortening a long story...She only had to push for 20 minutes--half an hour after they got to the hospital. (My first, I pushed for 3 hours with no drugs after having been in labor for 2 days already!)

Now I have a little baby girl to knit for!! I'm so excited. What to make first???
