Whoa Mary -- what a year you are having. I just caught up on your blog. I am so happy for you that your job continues and that the changes were not as big or severe as they could have been. God Bless you, you mother of a teenager. I am not looking forward to those days. You continue to be in my prayers.

"24 hours of labor and a c-section for this?" Ha!

Reminds me of what my husband promised me when I was going through the drama of delivering the kids..."They will NEVER back talk you after this!"

They seem to have missed that memo.
