Happy President's Day!

How completely unoriginal is that title? Heh.

Our little getaway was terrific. We visited Mr. Shrinking Knitter's son and daughter-in-law, who are expecting triplets this spring. Late this spring, we hope. The later the better. Mama-to-be looks so good and so healthy. She has a great attitude about having to, basically, live on a couch for the next three months. [She's on bedrest for the duration.] We really enjoyed spending time with them.

What's your idea of heaven? Well, I decided having triplets might be mine. You have to eat between 3500 and 4000 calories daily, and you're not permitted to exercise. What could be better than that? Heh.


I'm really tired this morning. These road trips are finally taking their toll, mostly in my very sore lower back. A good walk will help, and it's fairly warm here in the Middle of Nowhere today, so I might even try it outdoors. I should be able to walk between the rain showers. Tomorrow it gets cold and is supposed to snow and winter returns. You need to make hay while the sun shines.

Or something like that.

B&N didn't have the book I wanted in stock, which is just as well, because I'm not nearly as excited about reading it as I was when I first learned about it.

I'm so fickle.

Sure, you can eat that much and not move but the downside is delivering three babies and no sleep for how long? There's no such thing as a free lunch. :-)

She does have a very good attitude and I'm glad you had a good time with them.

Good luck with your walk; it's already 50 degrees on my side of the mountain.

I agree with Lori--and of course, there is also the part about having your tummy all stretched out to accommodate 3 little bodies. We all know how hard it is to get that tummy to sproing back into shape after one! Still, they are truly blessed to have the babies coming--and what fun for you to be doing 3 of everything!

As a person who birthed triplets, I can assure you it is not something worth any number of calories. Bed rest sucks after about 5 minutes too.
