We are in Florida having a great time with Dylan (and his Mom and Dad). We got here around Dec. 1 and plan to stay until Feb. 1. Our other kids are both arriving on Dec. 22 - Jana will stay with us, and "Uncle Tom" will stay at Laurie's - he always has to be the closest to Dylan :)
Laurie and Chip have just put in a new pool. It's filling
with water right now as I type! It's gorgeous, and I'm sure it will be a
highlight of this year's holiday.
health, right now I'm feeling normal, believe it or not! My Dr. told
me to establish a connection down here with a Doc who could then order
blood tests, etc. So I have a standing order with a local lab, I like
the people at the clinic, and I feel really good about it. They took my
complete history and requested records, etc., and so every time we come
down here, I have that good connection. Yay!
feelings about recent Michigan legislative action are not fit for public
consumption. It seems that things are changing faster than we can keep
up with them. I love Michigan, born and raised here - lived in Big
Rapids, Belleville, Ann Arbor and T.C. and love every one of those
places. Now, it's embarrassing to even have a conversation with people
about Michigan because there's no explaining what the heck is going on
in Lansing. I just hate the whole mess, and especially the
outcomes (union busting, abortion restrictions, anti-public school inroads, gun control). This is the first time in my life that I would actually
consider moving away from my beloved State. So many things that I
admire and value about Mich. are being flipped over to the completely
opposite side. Before you know it, they'll even institute the death
penalty, or something else equally reprehensible. Ugh.
