With the advent of some warm sunny days, business has picked up at work, nights are either filled with meetings or getting by to hold and snuggle with my grand kids.  RJ is starting to smile and she is growing and changing every time I see her, she is moving from newborn to baby.  HWS is now aware of who “Sissy” is and will point to her when asked.

There was an unexpected visitor to their house last night around 11:30.  Young lady driving was also texting and ran off road between 2 huge Magnolias, over 6 foot berm taking out 2 plantings, down the berm and into He Who Builds dually, hitting it in the rear wheels and moving it 2 feet.  The noise woke the dogs, who barked and then settled back down to sleep (remember this is a household with new baby, so sleep is precious and starts early in the evening).  DIL shook He Who Builds 3 or 4 times telling him she heard the doorbell.  He finally gets up, put on his britches, goes to the door and sees young lady running down the street.  Comes out of the house, still somewhat sleep befuddled and tries to understand how a Trailblazer is parked in his driveway against his truck in the wrong direction.  Thankfully, no one is hurt, damage to truck is minimal, Trailblazer more extensively damaged and texting young lady has probably learned a lesson.  After police, tow truck and lots more people, son and DIL are finally back in bed just in time for RJ’s 2 am feeding.

After checking out the tracks this morning, I am amazed that the texting young lady threaded the needle between the Magnolias.  Thanks be to God all are well!
