Three is the new two!! Congratulations!!! Oh, so so calm, because you'll get to hold another adorable, sweet angel. Mike and I always knew two was the limit for us, and I am calm because Mike is going under the knife in just a few short weeks. However, I am shocked to find that there is a part of me - the illogical part - that would love a third. That makes me happy - to know that babies and children are so wondrous that they can make us feel, think and do things that we NEVER thought we would.

I'm finally catching up with Spinning Yellow! I love it so much. "Wholesome, just like milk," is one of those vivid high school memories. Lori, he definitely had a crush on you! I'm surprised that your team building experiences revealed you as "nice." Of course I love you, but "nice" is NOT the word that comes to mind when I think of you, and I don't mean that in a mean or negative way! You are too honest and straightforward to be "nice." I think you're spot-on about yourself that you're the friend that makes me laugh, makes me think (!!!) and talks alot about yourself (which I love, because people are too guarded).

I'm somewhat tempted to say "Yippee! Count me in for the marathon!" Part of me really wants to do another one. But it's such a time consuming endeavor! I think it would be wonderful to run a big race with you and make an event out of it. Fall of '08 would be a good time to do it. You've got me intrigued.

Look at it this way -- You provided Scott and Jane with first hand experience of the prey/predator reality of life!

Lori, I just read your first posting, and I loved it! You are a wonderful writer, and I love, love, love that you are trying running! You and me -- we don't have to be the nonathletic girls of our youth! I think that running and mountain biking and camping and hiking are so fulfilling not just because of how they make me feel in the moment, but because I feel like I've overcome my fears of not being able to do athletic things. Now I'm just ticked off at myself for believing for all those years that I wasn't athletic.
