Yup, all caught up now.  I Reply as I go instead of read all then reply.    So very happy for your family.   I'm sure Kenzie and her cousins will be happy to meet Finnley too!

That's the way I reply too.

We facetimed with Kenzie, Caden and Aubrey but not the same as meeting in person.  My oldest daughter came up from LR last and just went home but plans to come back with all her kids so they can meet Finnley.  

My DD is spending another night at the hospital tonight.  We are hoping all is well by tomorrow so she can make it home.

I just booked us for Anthem sailing for Eric's BD cruise sailing out of cape liberty on 3.26.23. 

I used my free annual casino prime cruise.  They are for interiors but we upgraded to an OVB.  Cabin 7254 with extra wide balcony and double window like JSs have.  We like these rectangular cabins.   Screenshot_20220812-212812_Chrome.thumb.jpg.d49caddd8a29fc254f66f34c9da02374.jpgAfter he applied our diamond discount for balcony and 55+ discount the upgrade was free.  While actually he said it be $4.88 but he waived that when he saw it was Eric's BD cruise.😀

We still have his free annual cruise to use.  Not sure yet what we will do with that one.

Good morning.

Sunny and 75°F already at 10.31am with a high of 90°F expected.

Breakfast this morning.

Am I the only one who thinks the Brit tradition of beans for breakfast is just.... weird?

I know all cultures have food quirks that seem strange to other cultures, and most of the time I just shrug them off because that's just normal for that region (you should see the stuff my friend in Thailand posts on his Facebook page!).  But there's just something about the thought of baked beans at breakfast that just doesn't seem right to me!  LOL

Then again, I don't understand Royal's obsession with a grilled tomato on *every* *single* *plate* either!

Since to this day I'm editing Ob/Gyn articles dealing with preeclampsia, splenic artery aneurism, tubal ectopic pregnancy and other "occurrences", my motto is --

 

Healthy mother + healthy baby == nothing short of a miracle.


I've noticed that others have chimed in, but I have to add a big old "AMEN!" to that.  With all the things that have to go *just right* all the way from conception to implantation to in utero development to childbirth, it really is amazing just how often it does work out.  The more you know, the more in awe of the process you become.

Midjourney is a AI based art program through Discord. You will need to create an discord account. There are plenty of YouTube tutorial videos if you search Midjourney. Here is link to the basic information.

https://midjourney.gitbook.io/docs/

 

Keep in mind the first few images are free but if you want to create more there are several subscription rates. I pay $10/month but my limit goes pretty quickly by the time you udate and make versions.

 

It's fun and once you get the hand of it you can create some amazing images. I think she will like it. Any questions she can email me.

 

Hope you are having a blast. Drink a cocktail for me.

 

Cheers!

Greg

Thanks Greg

 

I'm sure she'll play around with this and she already has a discord account.

It’s really amazing what you can create by just using prompts. I would recommend seeing other images that are created and copy and pasting into notes to help create your image.

Finishing up cruising with cocktails with Below Deck. Made Linda Coco Locos and I had some black Manhattan’s. Hope your cruise is going great. How’s the food? Any liquor shortages?

Food is good, staff are great.  Pretty simple tastes with booze so I couldn't tell you if somethings missing or not. Weather has been perfect, around 75 every day.

Not TMI at all.  I am thankful to hear all ended well with them.  Last night we were told the reason for induction was preeclampsia.  I googled what it was all about and quickly learned I don't need to know it all.  The little I learned was concerning to me.  All is ending well so far.

I warned pics would come.  This is just a tease.  I will probably start flooding the board tomorrow when she is cleaned up.

Congratulations and so pleased all is well. What a beautiful little girl, babies are such everyday miracles. 

 

Our DIL is due on 01Sept and went into hospital to be checked over for pre eclampsia 10 days ago, but has been given the all clear and is back at home .  Her mum who is a retired nurse and lives abroad,  came back to UK early to look after her and checks her BP twice daily

See, it's just "normal" for Brits.... to me it would be like having a cheeseburger for breakfast.  Then again, I also love "breakfast for dinner" so I guess I'm just as weird!  LOL

We have breakfast dinner often.  I love breakfast foods, pancakes, waffles, french toast, eggs benedict etc.

Uh oh. Andrew just joined the 6th grade band and will be learning to play French horn. I hope he likes it better than you did. 😞

 

I'm sure he'll love it.  Things were very different back when I was in 5th grade.  I liked playing the french horn but when I stayed after school for band practice, I had to walk home.  It was about a 3/4 mile walk, lugging that large, heavy case.  That got old quickly.  I'm guessing that Andrew doesn't need to carry his case nearly that far.

Welcome to the world Finnley!  She's beautiful.  Congrats to you and your daughter.

 

Micheline was 10 days overdue with our first daughter.  One of the (male) OBGYNs in her practice told her that babies are fully developed at 38 weeks.  Two more weeks is just a bonus to ensure everything is OK.  NOT the thing that you want to tell an overdue pregnant woman in June.  None of the 3 men in her practice wanted to induce, preferring to wait.  The one woman in her practice, who I think had a little more sympathy, gave her what she called a "hard internal"...stripping her membranes and inducing labor.

I'm a fan of baked beans.  Love them for breakfast, although I've only ever eaten them for breakfast in England.
