I'm going to be a Great Aunt! My nephew Mike and his wife Katie are expecting in April! :D

My mom called me to chat about it while I was on my weekend with Boomer Babes so I called her back. She told me she'd shared with her friend that she was not feeling well and didn't think she'd be here much longer unless something happened to make her want to live. A few days later she got the good news and now wants to live.

I wonder if I should call her more often? It's hard because I'm having a hard enough time dealing with my own feelings. The last several years have really taken a toll on me. Scampi's last couple of years were so traumatic that I'm only now starting to process her loss. My historic issues with my mom are still there. It's stressful for me to interact with her.

Mom's right. The new baby helps a lot! I found an adorable happy sheep puppet at Renaissance Faire, stuffed enough for snuggling and couldn't resist buying it. Yeah, I've started spoiling already. ;)

She loved having grandkids. Great grandkids will be even better!

They aren't getting any younger. A while ago, I started to make it a point to call my folks every Sunday morning. I miss every now and then. They seem to appreciate the call and it isn't so difficult.

You inspire me to be a better daughter.
