When schedules collide.

Well, let me tell you one thing...this child that's growing in my ever-expanding womb will be my future gardening buddy. Never in my life have I craved as many vegetables as I do now. Tonight for dinner, while everyone else had pigs in a blanket and a veggie, I had a bowl of green beans (or maybe two), a bowl of corn (or maybe two), and half a tomato. Granted, none of these were homegrown, as my garden is still just a dream (you should see Lake Okeechobee in our backyard from all the rain!)...but they were deliciouso nonetheless. And I have no one to blame but the uterus-stretching being inside of me. And now I'm snacking on Starburst-flavored jelly beans for dessert...life is good.

Now let me tell you another thing. How is it that Big Boss Man and I have completely separate days off, and yet we can schedule doctor's appointments (with two different doctors, no less) on the exact same day, one hour apart from each other, without realizing it??? Not to mention the fact that the doctor's offices are far, far away from each other, and we only have one vehicle! So, I don't know how this is going to work out tomorrow morning, but it will undoubtedly involve one or both of us sitting on our tushies waiting for the other. Oh yeah, and I have to work tomorrow afternoon, so we have to be back by 2pm. I don't know what we were thinking...oh wait...WE WEREN'T!!!

I don't think you'll have to worry about making either appointment if the rain keeps up. Do you know how to build an ark? They closed Carbondale due to flooding so my son couldn't get home tonight. He's expecting to be called out(National Guard) as it's flooding like crazy in Southern Illinois.

Ness-do you live near Carbondale?

I'm two hours north from there now, Patrick. I used to live in a little town about 10 miles from there and I worked at SIU. My family was from Herrin and my kids were all born in Herrin/Marion. My son is graduating from SIUC in May and commissioning as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army.
