Happy Birthday, Baby

Today is my baby's 30th birthday! Boy, do I feel old! I called and sang Happy Birthday to her machine this afternoon. She called back and read me the riot act -- she'd been waiting all day for mom to call and when I finally did, she was in the shower! vbg!

We travelled down memory lane for a bit -- but she didn't remember at all that 30 years ago we had an ice storm and her idiot EX-father parked the car at the top of a hill behind the emergency entrance to the hospital and made me walk, contractions and all, down an icy hill instead of dropping me at the door! vbg Ah, fond memories! NOT!

No sewing today, but looking forward to working on the house block tonight. Did manage to get the house appliqued down last night, so just need to add the other stuff now.

Happy Birthday, indeed! Now she can just ice skate through life, right? guys can be clueless. Hope you get some sew time in!

Happy Birthday to your daughter! You made me laugh- my husband refused to run a red light (the last one before the ER) and my son was nearly born in the car- literally. MEN...

Oh Joanne! What memories huh! I'm sorry but I had to laugh at you having to go down an icy hill contractions and all.

I was in bad labor about 1 in the morning with my 4th one. Now up to that point my longest labor had been 3 hours, and it is at least a 45 minute drive to the hospital. I wake my husband up and tell him we have to call his mom to come to the house so we can go to the hospital - his reply "Can't it wait to morning, I don't want to wake my mom up"!!!!

Geez. Needless to say I said no and by the time I got to the hospital I had her about an hour later.
