Family Birth Celebration and Some Randomness
Our family is welcoming a precious new baby to the world.

Welcome Kaitlynd!

Kaitlynd Rae
January 24, 2007
7lbs. 6 oz.
20 1/2 inches

What a beauty! I believe she has the long legs to play basketball--or maybe model! :-)

Proud parents are Paula and Chris. Paula is my niece. I have a picture of Kaitlynd and her daddy, but Blogger will just not take it! Go figure! Sorry, Chris! I think mom was being camera shy on Katie's birth day! :-)

Grayson Day is the happy big brother.
He is about 2 1/2 years old--and a VERY precious, sweet child.
I understand Grayson calls his sister Katie Baby!
Carlene (my sister-in-law) is the proud grandmother.

Katie will be well loved by the whole family!

Random Thoughts About Household Upkeep!

I realize I'm a little late welcoming Kaitlynd. I'm just having a little trouble staying connected these days. I'm getting there, but resuming blogging has been more difficult than I thought it would be!

This week has been consumed by exciting things like plumbers! Is there a law that says everything in a house falls apart when it gets near the ten year mark?! I have had to call for a plumber three times in the last month!!

YIKES! I think all water and waste carrying pipes and all faucets are working properly now. If they are not, I think this will have to be my solution to the problem now. I mean enough's enough!
I have another task I need to work on now. Have you ever ordered furniture online? It can be quite an experience! Sometimes it works out--sometimes not so much! Well, we just got a new TV. We are enjoying it, but we needed a new console or something for it because we did not want to put it on the wall.

So--because I do not do much store type shopping these days--I grabbed the trusty laptop and went shopping. We chose this as the piece we would purchase. The description promised--"Very little assembly required." I was sure I could handle putting doors on or something simple like that.

One of the dangers of online shopping for large items is delivery time. No problem there--It arrived very promptly. However, this is what it looks like! Uh! Not exactly the right size box for "very little assembly required."

It has been sitting in the middle of the floor (it weighs 300 lbs!) for several days. I left it there while I decided if it was going back or staying here. I just telling everyone to "watch out for my "assembled" TV console."

I have read the directions, reread them, and reread them again. I have decided I can too put this thing together! I'll keep you posted. Maybe It will be under the TV (a substitute table is there now) in time for the SuperBowl--2009!

Ya'll have a great weekend!

Congratulations to the proud parents! Katie is gorgeous, and I can tell she's going to lack for love and attention. ;o)

Myrna, you're an intelligent, capable woman! You can put that piece of furniture together. Anybody that can wrangle hundreds of kids every day, year after year, can assemble a small piece of (heavy!) furniture. You go, girl!

Have a blessed weekend, my friend.

Love and hugs,

We had the same thing with a computer desk (a HUGE one) that we bought when we moved in this house. It took me 2 days to put it together. It was a amazing. B

But it is very sturdy and we like it a lot. It would be very big to move though.

And congrats on Kaitlyn! She truly is a beauty. What a pretty baby with such bright big eyes. And willowy. She will be a beautiful girl.
