Lemonade & Good News!

Last time we chatted I had exciting news. My BFF safely delivered a beautiful baby girl on Monday Morning. Her preciousness is still being called Baby Girl Sturm because the parental Sturms cannot decide on a fitting name. I will keep you posted as to what is finally decided on. I am sure it will be as perfect as she is. I got to hear her cry yesterday and it was the funniest sound I have ever heard a baby make. Chrystal said it sounds like a zoo and she is right. It was kind of a cross between a howler monkey and a parrot being squeezed. It is a little frightening like maybe someone was pinching the crap out of her. I can not imagine Chrystal doing that. I know she would bite her, but not pinch her. Hee Hee. You can check out my precious neice at

Also, my precious friend, Jessica Kaylor, made it home via Jet plane on Monday. I am keeping posted by her blog. I really want to call her, but I am giving her time to get acclimated and have qt with kids and family and people who think they are more important than me. Hee. She is going to have to get through rehab pretty quickly because we have a tamale class at Central Market on April 14th. I may have to go see her soon to light a fire under her tooshie!

OK, my news...for the last two days I have been on the Master Cleanser. This is a 10 day fast. You drink nothing but a lemonade concoction for 10 days and cleanse your body of all nastiness including excess fat. Tonight the fast was broken by Cici's Pizza and I tell you it was worth it. I have been dizzy, cloudy headed, tired, cranky, depressed, weepy and spending a lot of time on the potty. This is not for me. I am not sure anything that requires the use of Desitin by the second day is a good thing. So, I may be a loser and I may have no willpower but I am not going through this again!!!!!

Praise God for Jessica's safe travels home! And I'm jealous of the temale class. So fun.

There is no link on your blog to see Sister pics. Here it is:

Be sure to update your readership on her name...I'm sure they are all waiting in anticipation! We all were.

See...I told you I wasn't trying to be super secretive! We really hadn't decided. And the funniest thing is that my 'C' name actually was Callie [do you have ESP?]. How did you guess that of all the C names in the entire world. You're a witch, aren't you? Some sort of VooDoo Mistress or something. And yes, it was to refer to our love of California.

Thanks for your awesome prayer. God is so good.

I want to fix your blog for you. The off centerness doesn't go with your decorating sense...oh and it drives me crazy.

Actually, I do have ESPN! All of the channels to be exact, but they didn't tell me about Callie. I just made it up out of my clever head. Or my "big thinking head" as Sophie says.

Oh...and that was me that wanted to help you fix the blog header...not Chrystal.
