    Re: One Step at a Time - July 2019

    Happy 4th of July!!!

    Rusty - welcome home. I laughed at your suitcase story. I can just see it. I'm glad you had fun.

    Pauly - funny name you chose. How long did you work?

    Bird - I hope you get some relaxing time in. You did sound like you are feeling stressed out. Maybe recruit the girls and their bf's to come over and tend to the garden.

    Liz - I hope that your SIL is on good behavior. How frustrating to have to deal with her!

    The block party is in full swing here. The kids stopped by for a little bit but didn't want to hang around today. They think it will be too much for the baby. It gets loud and crazy here as the day goes on. They have a water slide down the street and another one right across the street. Someone must have got hurt last year because there was a little blurb in the newsletter about watching your kids so there won't be a repeat of last year.

    Did you hear that we had a big earthquake today? We didn't even feel it. The kids felt it right when they were leaving to drive over here. It must have been a weird one because my niece was at a parade with a group of 21 people and some felt it and some didn't.

    Hey all
    Just wanted to let you all know that from now on we'll be celebrating the 4th July too, as it's my grandson's birthday! A beautiful healthy baby (8lb 11) and both mother and baby are well.

    @Glass Half Empty, Glassy....Wonderful news! So happy for you! What will your grandchildren call you? Grandma? Grammy? Thank you for sharing your joy with us. We have missed you.
    @NoraC-that is wild about the earthquake and how you couldn't feel it. I hope the block party didn't get out of hand with all the drinking.

    Pauly-I love the name, too. Cheeseburger...hahaha!!

    Thanks, lovely. I'm Grandy to the little ones. I had my first cuddle today and am now officially in love.

    Re: One Step at a Time - July 2019

    Hello all! Sorry I skipped yesterday, I was just pooped! My difficult SIL was here and she was well behaved! We had a nice chat! Everyone was in the pool, it was just that hot! We had a lovely day. Ended it with fireworks
    GLassie congrats on your latest addition! He's just perfect. I am so glad everyone is doing ok!
    Nora, that earthquake is just plain scary! We've had a few here on the east coast, nothing major.
    Rusty, your get away sounds lovely. That's a lot of bike riding, but I love a good work out!
    Bird, hope your atl. Weekend is goes smoothly. I've heard about all those travelers too. My son made it to ST croix, just fine. He sent a few pics, not nearly enough, though.
    What's everyone doing this weekend? No plans here and I'm relieved. Hope everyone has a quiet at night!

    Are any of you familiar with the poet Rumi?

    I came across this beautiful quote from him the other day and it struck me how relevant it is to anyone stuck in the alcohol trap:

    “Why do you stay in prison, when the door is so wide open?”

    His poems helped me when I was quitting, Glassie. This one helped me forgive myself: The cracks allow the light to come in (or some similar translation!).

    My experience has been that Grandsons are a blast. Have fun!
