Let's Build A Word - AUNT!

Holy crapola! I just got a call I never thought I would brother and his wife are expecting! I'm going to be an aunt! My brother is not known to be warm and fuzzy - he seems to enjoy his nephews but seems to enjoy giving them back even more. He's fastidious in terms of his clothing, his car, his house. And they are having a baby! He is in for such a game changer and I can hardly wait to see this happen.

Of course no sooner had I gotten off the phone with him than P had jammed a kernel of corn up his nose. I had to call back to share the joys of parenthood with him. After successfully removing the corn with tweezers...of course. Surgery before gloating, always.

A Very Good Place to Start?

I keep thinking one of these days I'm finally going to have a chance to sit down and start this story at the beginning. Isn't that where you are supposed to start? But I guess the reality is that the beginning will come out when it is time and for now I should just start typing. I seriously doubt that anyone will ever read this and so it doesn't matter where I begin and what direction I go in. So, now that I've got that out there...I need to find a good place to start.

Maybe tomorrow.
