Rain & Babies  
Was woken up by rain just pounding down! And since we're on the first floor with another unit above us, it was all noise from outside the windows. I got up and turned on the furnace in case we lost power, but thankfully, we didn't. It must have stormed nearly an hour before settling down to more quiet rainfall. I finally fell asleep, and then ended up dreaming I was pregnant, and later, I had the babies (must have been twins!) It was one of those 'real' sorts of dreams, so when I woke up, there were those few seconds of confusion. Needless to say, I'm now incredibly depressed. I need to go find something happy inducing :)

But still on the bad news side, talked to my mum, and my father's middle sister had a stroke two days ago, and yesterday they took her off life support. They didn't expect her to live long after that. She's almost ten years younger than he is. He found out, not because his youngest sister called, but a mutual friend who wasn't sure anyone had told him. Lots of ridiculous family dynamics and crap I won't bore you with going on there. We haven't seen them since we left Canada. Neither of his sisters married (yeah, it seems to run in the family), so there are no cousins/nieces-nephews. Just me and my brother, and neither of us married or are ever likely to, and I'm almost too old to ever have a child -- so I guess I now know why I'm dreaming about babies!. And mum says father fell again, but still refuses to go to the doctor. She's frazzled, understandably. So the whole situation is sort of getting me into a mood. And of course, my brother's birthday is today. Not much of a happy one.


Okay, I'll go away now and try and come back in a better mood.

have some big hugs! I understand the family drama.

As for the rain, uh yeah. Buckets coming down here and we have more tornado watches and warnings. As terrible as it is, I am highly amused that a tornado hit the CNN center last night (and more bad weather today) in light of all the news lately (I won't say more!). Fortunately, it appears to be mostly building damage and minor injuries. The local news is doing a good job keeping people informed.

(if it's any consolation, babies are knackering little critters!)

Believe it or not, I used to be a nanny for a newborn. Did it for nearly two years.

Thanks :)

Hey, I can get a five year work permit since my grandparents were born in the UK! (if only I'd known that when I was a much younger woman!)

I'm sorry about your aunt. It's kinda sad that he had to find out from someone else. Family drama, what can you do about it?

{{{good thoughts}}}

It's always sad to hear of a family member passing. I'm sorry for your families loss.

I gave up on the idea of ever getting married or having children when I was 38. I guess that's why Project Edan and PEACE mean so much to me!!

Thank you :) I always think I'm getting past it, but every now and then something happens to smack me upside the head.

Ith, so sorry to hear about your Aunt. Family angst aside, I know your family and its history means a lot to you.
