Our youngest DD delivered on a Thursday evening and made it to Tuesday evening classes. She had a very easy delivery, obviously. May your DD be so blessed. If the little guy is considerate he will come on a Thursday evening so that granny can be at home when he comes home on Saturday.

A few weeks after our little guy came home, DD says, "You know, I don't remember this being so difficult when I was a baby. LOL. You can't believe how much a baby complicates things, but you will love this complication!!!!

Babies love floating in a pool. Do pools get warm up there. Down here in Texas with temps in the 100's they get really nice. Babies enjoy them.

Up north you get cooler night, but not down hDown here AC is a necessity, not a luxury. With that garage conversion our electric bills this summer will be $500 plus more. OUCH!

Poppa pushed post to quick

Down here the nights don't cool down very fast. And this is a muggy hot, not a dry heat like in some places.

That's $500 for the entire summer, not each month.

I think that ant vs. Awnt thing is a kind of reagonal thing. And though we use ant, awnt may have been the correct way when the word was first used.

I saw on the news that even up in the far north states like Minnasocold that temps for the next few days are going to be well above 90. I don't know, but I'll bet most folks up there don't have AC, just like we don't have snow plows. Being in the ninth month with those temps would make me complain BIG TIME. Can she go somewhere to a cool zone like a library in the afternoons?

Actually, here in WI we got to 98 very humid degrees today, and we're supposed to stay right up there clear until Friday - when I leave for Ft. Hood TX for the weekend!

Our house in Michigan didn't have AC, but it was built in 1923 and we intended to put it in when the furnace died.
