On Monday morning, at 8 am, my niece was born! What a wonderful gift. Sweet Kathryn Rose. I can't wait to meet her. I already share my birthday with my first cousin, Jeff. He and I agree it's fun to share our special day. The more the merrier!
I came downstairs this morning and saw all the signs that Ruthie is suffering from her allergies again: empty can of strawberry spritzer, medicines, and popsicle sticks. We got caught up in our activities and neglected our vacuuming and dusting, so Ruthie is reacting to the dust. She's been walking around with an ice pack on her chest. Time to get out her aromatherapy oils. (In all fairness, my children spent Saturday afternoon cleaning up our rental home since our old tennant moved out and our new tennant is due to move in tomorrow. I didn't have the heart to ask them to vacuum another room!)
