Welcome to a new great-niece!

One of the longer days I’ve had. Got to work a little early this morning although not quite as early as I wanted to due to snow driving conditions, albeit relatively minor ones. Mad dash to the bank during what passed for a lunch break and then ate what passed for a lunch at my desk. No, I don’t work for a slave driver. I was trying to get my eight hours in so I could leave in good conscience by five PM today in order to blast over to WCC and pick up an audit form for the class I’m registered for. Because I’ve decided that I can’t work full-time at a new job and take an intense class and deal with all of my life and family responsibilities and retain any semblance of sanity. [delete long, lame stuff about that.] And then I went to said class. For those who may not understand this stuff, auditing a class means paying for it but not being responsible for turning in work or being graded. I don’t recommend it for anyone who isn’t an old bag like me who actually has some family responsibilities, etc.

So. Sorry, Joanny, that I missed your call! My phone was on vibrate and at the time you tried to call, I was in class and my phone was packed away in a padded purse in a YAG bag under my desk. So I didn’t hear it. Wish I had! Didn’t get a picture either. But what wonderful news!!! Christina! Six pounds, 11 ounces. Joanny’s call came in at 7:01 and she said Christina had been born within the hour. Both parents are very happy and doing very well!! Congratulations to Dave and Jenny and welcome to Christina!!

    Dan audited some classes. It worked for him b/c he paid full-time tuition, so as long as he didn’t go over 18 credit hours total, the price was the same.

    Congrats on the newest member of the extended family!

    And if your post was on Grinch’s birthday, that means this response is on yours! Happy Birthday, cuz!

    I was feeling like I had wimped out about not taking the class for credit. But having gone to one session, I can see it will be a valuable experience even if I don’t end up actually doing much of the work. Well known teacher I’ve had for a lot of classes, including the one that ended up leading to my current work.

    And I don’t know about baby pics. It sounded like Joanny had tried to send me something but I’m not sure. If she was doing it via phone, she may have had difficulties.
