I’m going AWOL! (and I’ve got a new nephew)

If we took a holiday, just one day out of life, it would be (it would be) it would be so nice.

Leave it to Madonna.  Yep, a holiday would be nice…  so I’m taking one.  No, I’m not going far.  Just a two hour drive.  But there’s no internet – so I’ll be forced to actually leave work behind.  Six days, just for me, kid-kid, my sister Bug, and some of the dogs.  Damon will join us for one night at the start, but he needs to head back for work.  We were hoping he’d be able to join us too, but he’s understaffed just now, so can’t get away.

Before I disappear though (and I may try to check in briefly from time to time using my iPhone) I wanted to take a quick minute to welcome Leandro to the family.  My nephew was born at 3:22 this morning, three weeks early (just like his big sister), at exactly seven pounds.  We’re so glad he decided to make his appearance before we disappeared from civilization – and I did MUCH better this time.  I didn’t start crying.  LOL  I may have teared up briefly, but unlike the first time I held his sister the waterworks did not get turned on (thought I did have to work pretty hard to hold them off).  When the kid saw his picture for the first time this morning (before we got to see him in person) she said “I bet he’s going to grow up to be a cute little handsome man”, and I’d be willing to bet she’s right.
