    ....yes, it's me.... at 3:09AM :lol

    Daughter called - she's in labor - heading to the hospital. Having my 4th grandbaby!

    She said she'd call as soon as she is admitted, and all the prelimiinary stuff is done. That was 4 hours ago. :ugh

    I should probably hop in the car and head to her place.... all I'm doing here is binging on 'comfort food'. But I can't sleep. So, I've done bills, printed and mailed a proposal, left little notes for Thorn :eek: , packed and re-packed my suitcase and folded the laundry. Ever notice how you never hear the ticking clock in the kitchen unless it's the middle of the night. It's very VERY loud then.

    Oh... btw.... did you know there's a virginity sale going on? :rofl

    *smoke break*

    Really? Where?!

    Rose, I'm sure you've heard from her by now, which means you're already into a very busy (and happy) day. Just wanted to send you all happy, healthy vibes. Can't wait to hear the stories.

    Thanks, Mel. I wish…. I finally went to bed about 4:30 or so.

    She’s totally effaced, but had dilated only 1 cm by 1:00, so they sent her home, with pain reducer. Finally talked to her at 4. I imagine I’ll be getting the real call today sometime. I’ll let you know.

    It’s her first. – and she’s “Daddy’s little girl” all the way! ;)

    Thanks, all!

    Intense emotions, even good ones, are quite exhausting. The 'in-laws' got here yesterday afternoon, so I got to sleep in at the hotel today. Some much-needed rest for the old woman!

    Mom & baby come home today :)
