Amy had her baby boy last Thursday. He was premature, so his lungs were weak and he needed to be put on a ventilator. Yesterday they took him off of it and he is doing well. I just noticed that Amy put up some new pics on her Flickr, and I just had to post this one here because it makes my heart happy. She finally got to hold him today:
And while I was checking out all her new photos, I noticed that the title of one of them was "The Girls." It made me feel like a part of her family and loved....Thank You Amy!

My Deep Thought for the Day
If I didn't have to wear a sportsbra, I think I'd find working out more enjoyable. They seriously suck my will to live.....and workout.
Monday's a Bitch
[get it here
]1. If you could have a view of anything you wanted from your bedroom window, what would you choose?
The ocean.2. Have you ever tried Red Bull? Did you like it?
Yes. Yes. 3. Is there anything that you are embarrassed to go out and purchase
Nope.4. Do you like amusement park rides? Are high adrenaline rides preferable, or do you prefer the mellow ones?
Yes. I like most rides...except the ones that go in circles...those give me the pukey feeling.5. Do you tend to be more attracted to people (romantically or for friendship) who are similar to you or very different? What sorts of differences in your personalities might attract you to a person?
I like people who are similar with sprinkles of complimentary differences. I like it when someone views things in a different way than I do. I like to gain a "rounder" view of things...not just from my perspective. I like people who challenge me and don't coddle me. Tell me how it is, not how you think I want it to be.

For Brett: (Using my Blog as a Communication Forum)
Received this comment from you:"Brett said...
You know....you actually know someone who lives within spitting distance of Scotland and knows a lot of great Scottish pubs. Why dont you get your butt on a plane and come visit us? You should know this by now, but I will say it again, you are always welcome and we would love to see you...In fact grab your sister and you can both come visit the cutest thing you have never met.

Thanks for the invite! I want to come!!! I tried to hook up with you guys when you were in town last, but I never heard back from you via e-mail, so I'm hoping this way works a little better. I'm guessing the whole having-a-kid-while-you-were-overseas-and-then-returning-to-Colorado/Hawaii-for-a-visit thing, kept you on the busy side.
I would LOVE to get out there soon. :-) I think it would cost quite a bit, but I'm seriously considering it. When are you guys back in Denver next? I'm guessing with the holidays coming up, it will be some point in the near future. I do want to meet "the cutest thing I have never met." Gratuitous monkey shot of Gage:
Talk to you soon!

I'm seriously thinking about ending this blog.
It's been around for 5.5 years, and that's pretty much the only reason I want to keep it going.
I am no longer interesting and I don't want to be one of those boring sad-sack bloggers.
I'll let you know what I decide.
