Yesterday my determined daughter slipped her cowgirl boots over swollen ankles and held her chin up while she showed Emmy and Dixie at the Harris County Fair. Emmy took a first, and Dixie took a 7th. Susanne took ice packs to bed with her. She had a great day, and she’s really coming to understand that the mind is a powerful part of pain. Here’s hoping she gets through HSP quickly. We’re at five weeks 🙁


Great news! Next month our oldest offspring Thomas is moving to Houston. True to our rebounding tradition, it looks like he’ll live with us for a month or two before he gets his own place. We’d just downsized to a 1600-square foot house, so we’ll be snuggly tight with his 6’4″ frame in the same room as Clark Kent’s 6’2″. The more the merrier! He’s upgraded his job situation and we couldn’t be happier for him.
