waiting......

tender times....
no, jas hasnt had her baby----but i got to see in her a patience and calm that i know she didnt get from me! the dr says she isnt engaged....her body is not ready....so we do ultrasounds and wait.....i'm not a good waiter....but jasmine is such a happy, pleasant person. She is going to be a terrific mom---if that baby ever lets her! :) jasmine and david have put together a darling nursery....pirates everywhere....i got elbow deep in stain as i worked on a pirate ship wheel and and anchor for baby Ben's room.
so maybe i dont have the mad skills that i claimed with cannon....apparently ben hall has his own thoughts....fine....i can deal with that. also got to spend some time with lyric & ben....what a cute couple. they are so nurturing to each other and focused on planning their life together. Ben is tender, funny and a list-maker.....he will totally fit in.
went to a Lamar University basketball game with david, jas, lyric, ben and a bunch of other singles from the institute (church)....that was fun....before the game we had dinner at the institute....links, burgers, boudain (blecch) and dirty rice----so i had a burger bun with dirty rice in it.....mmmmmmmm. Jas & david dont have tv....so i watched Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat 6 times---really....love that movie....you can watch each scene individually or the movie as a whole.
i love having the girls in beaumont, I am able to rekindle all sorts of friendships with people i knew when we lived there 20 years ago.
pictures will be coming----i left my camera cord in beaumont! i'm going back on saturday to wait out the baby and get final stuff done for the wedding.

I love your use of words ... meh, blech ....

This is a special time for you, Meredith -- weddings, babies, family. I know you're enjoying it .... so do a little reveling in it too. You deserve it.
