WHERE is Spring?

Tomorrow my tiny nieces are going to Yale to have their hips examined. I panicked when Jen told me, but apparently they routinely look at all baby girls who were in a breech position, because many have hip dislocation problems. Who knew? Tonight Shao & I will stop over and visit for a little bit. We need a baby fix! And I need to unload some of the "loot" I have been collecting for the girlies. Seems like I can't stay away from ebay, where they're concerned! :o

My mom is home from Florida. I'm glad. I don't see her all that much, even though she lives downstairs from us. But when she is GONE, I am restless. What WILL I do when the awful time comes that she dies? Oh, dear. I have to face it one of these days. She will be 86 in June. Thankfully, she is in great health, goes to the gym 3+ times a week, "takes care of old folk", cleans houses one day a week, and is constantly on the move. I can't keep up with the woman!

Just a few weeks away from Easter. Shao & I met one of her many "adopted grammas" at a mall last weekend, and Gramma Bonnie insisted on buying Shao an outfit and shoes for Easter. Oh, my, she got the most BEAUTIFUL dress! Funny girl...I picked out a dress I thought was lovely (very sweet, classic, etc.) Shao picked out one she liked (very cute, trendy, hip). She tried them both on, they both looked great, and I left the choice up to her. She came out of the dressing room and shocked both Gramma & I...she choose the dress I picked out. I questioned her, as I wanted to be sure SHE was sure. Yep! She said she thought she would get more wear out of it, as it was a cotton sundress look, so she could wear it all summer. Wow! My girl is growing up. I miss my baby, but I sure do like the young lady who is taking her place!

Speaking of Easter, Shao & I will be heading south to Pennsylvania for Easter. We always spend it with my BFF Kim and her husband Henry. I am getting excited! I love them, and we always have such fun. I have friends, of sorts, around here, but my truly GOOD friends are spread all over the US, so I treasure any time I get to spend with any of them. I would say that most of my truly dear friends are from College days, with a smattering of adoption buddies and others thrown into the mix. I am blessed with the precious people in my life...I just wished they all lived nearby!

No other real news here. Still quite cold...when WILL Spring arrive?!?!? I know...March 20th...only 8 days away. But I am not convinced, notwithstanding the MANY robins I have spotted recently. AND the signs for pansies at every nursery! :) It can't come soon enough for me!
