Just a quickie post. Manda just got to the hospital where they are inducing her. I guess the baby isn't growing as much as they want, and they are worried, so they are plucking the little tater tot before getting fully cooked. She's a little worried, I'm a littled worried. They expect the baby (I call her Chloe or Zoe, hoping Manda listens) to be in NICU for a tad bit. Please keep them both in your prayers.
Love you all!

I looked like a crazy woman doing the "snot" cry. Poor sweet Ginger tried to help her crying Grammy....she "fixed" my crying (balled her fists and rubbed them into my eyes). I will miss that little demon so bad.
I am grateful for Josh. He is such a sweet gentle man and a wonderful husband, father and son. I know he will take great care of his family. He has always wanted to travel and this is a great opportunity for him to do so.
Manda came over last night all by herself for some mommy time. We just kept watching another and another show just to avoid her leaving. I think I will be lost for a little while without her. She is such a dear, wonderful daughter and friend. She loves her mom and is so good to me.
I feel like a part of my heart is gone. When Erin left it wasnt so bad because I knew she would come back home. This time though it really sucks. I know that parents are supposed to let their children go on their path in life and support them through it. However, I want to scream at them to come back. I want to protect and take care of them. I don't like this letting go crap. I hope this gets easier with time.
I remember Manda as a little feisty thing. Throwing Ginormous temper tantrums, giving me the "finger" (used the wrong finger though), rocking the sassy curls. Now she is all grown up with a family of her own. She's beautiful a great mother, much better than I was. She is so kind, yet still with a sassy streak to her. She has the best laugh ever, she throws her head back and lets loose completely. (think Disneyland). How lucky am I to have her?
I hope their flight goes well. I, on the other hand, am going to go cry for a bit I think.

Here is me, Norman and Madison. I am doing OK at my new job, definitely keeping me hopping. It's crazy to try and track and care for 102 elderly people with varying needs. For some reason I love it though. Norman is retired Coast Guard (he did drug interdiction on the boats), now he works in collections. He is crazy about salt water fish (yes we have Nemo) and also his 68 silver Mustang. We go to car shows and hang out with our car club people. Madison is in the 2nd grade. A very smart girl. Unfortunately, she also has the Proffitt gene of talking too much...surprise! Yet can still make great grades. She is for the most part, gentle kind and easy to get along with. Says some of the most bizarre, grown up things.

We had our pumpkin carving party last night at Matt and Desi's. Matt made Bacon Potato Chowder, I brought roll, Manda brought drinks. It is total chaos when we are together, but we all love it. It started out really fun, the kids loved scooping out the guts. Somewhere along the line though, they got bored,decided to go play with each other. All the adults wound up actually carvin the pumpkins. Ultimately, I think they all turned out awesome! What do you think? Are these the cutest, funnest grandchildren ever?
