I hate picking titles for posts

Sorry about the album coming up blank. I guess that it was time limited. I will see if I can figure out how to post at least one picture.

You know what the problem is with vacations? Eventually, you have to go back to work. And summer is busy baby-having season. Busy....

I would covet your prayers for a special intention - for which I will have an answer by the end of the week, I think.

Feel free to contact me via email at any time. The blog is public space and I don't always post everything I might want to, just because of that.

checking in briefly

I'm in Rockford IL, had an uneventful flight yesterday morning into Chicago-O'Hare, and a very wet drive into Rockford. Lunch Yesterday at a Barbecue place called Famous Dave's (I think that it is a local chain), dinner last night at Giovanni's. Some blissful time spent just soaking in the jacuzzi pool.
While the kids were in town for the graduation, they dragged all of us down to get portraits done - you can see the album here

A recent update from Nancy -(deleted by request -

Please continue to keep her in your prayers, and if you feel moved to send her anything, contact me for her address etc.



Last I heard, Nancy's legal fund over at www.rosesblue.com had close to $900 - most of it from small donations ($5 to $25). Thanks to all who have contributed.
I've been scarce and will probably continue to be so for a while. We are having Confirmation this Sunday (yes, on Pentecost) and just now was rehearsal, I'm on call again tomorrow and again next Saturday (that's 3 Saturdays in a row). And of course my usual Wednesdays on call.The things I do to get some time off! We have a journal club Monday night. We're discussing perineal repair... The OB residency program has invited those of us who teach the residents (that means me) to an awards event the following week. It's that time of year, I guess. John's birthday is next week, and Father's day is coming up, and I am getting just a little frazzled around the edges with my own life (to say nothing of the lives of those for whom I care).

The no-longer-a baby will be graduating from High School on June 17. All but one of her siblings are flying in to help celebrate. I guess it's a good thing that we have a big house right now, although most days it seems so empty lately.

John and I will be taking a short trip to Northern Illinois (Rockford area) the following weekend (June 22-25). Anyone in that area who would like to see if we can get together please email me privately. I'm not yet sure just what our schedule will be.

In other good news, we will get our first veges from the CSA June 14. I am so looking forward to fresh organic vegetables to inspire my creativity - although the first couple of weeks are usually greens, greens, and more greens. Who knows what effect the recent flooding rains have had on the crops, though.

Hard to believe that it is June already.
