Wow. After about 12 days on the road, we rolled into Albany late Saturday night and Sunday I finally got to meet Hazel! Of course, she is absolutely precious.
You can't tell in the picture, but she has blue eyes and WHITE eyelashes and she looks like she's definitely going to be a redhead. I could eat her up. Connor is so thrilled to be a big brother--he's just adorable with her. I love that kid--duh. Doesn't he look a lot like me in this pic? And doesn't it look like I have a huge hole on the side of my face? (It's my earring--ha!)
I PROMISE this blog won't turn into an "Aren't my grandkids just the cutest?" site. Really. Just humor me a little. I have a lot of funny things to tell you about our trip, and some more pictures and videos to post, including a music video Lori and I made at 70 mph on a Tennessee highway at midnight. Very mature.
One thing I'll tell you right now--I am so friggin' sick of dealing with new technology. Between my fancy-schmancy new phone and the GPS Mike got me for the trip, for the past two weeks I've done nothing but swear while pressing buttons. And I mean I brought out my special swear words. I have all the patience in the world for people, but I could take a hammer to a machine that doesn't do what I want it to.
User error--kiss my ass. I think the T-Mobile help line has me on their Do Not Answer list, but as I told them, it might help if the phone came with a goddamn manual. "You can download it from the Internet," they told me. THAT IS SO NOT THE SAME and also not very convenient when you're on a cross-country road trip. Grrrr....
So I'm settling in here in Albany; I can tell it's going to be a while before I get my bearings. I haven't had a chance to catch up with my blogging buddies lately, but you know I love you. And thanks to all of you who've been along with us on this adventure. I so appreciate your reading all my crap.
