"Boring Place"

One of the first things out of Holland's mouth this morning was:

"I don't want to stay in this boring place!"

Ash, this is so awesome, it is truly amazing!!!!! I just read all of your entries with Annette on the phone! We really enjoyed reading your comments and had alot of laughs. What a great idea to help you pass the time you are spending on bedrest. I especially loved the light blinking, that just melted my heart. How sweet! and Hollands comments about this boring place and poor mommy. Did you see Oprah's show about the "The Secret"? It is all about being grateful and seeing the positives in every situation every day! Annette and I started practicing this today, the very same day you started your blog!!

Hi Ash,
How fun is this! I will be your comment queen so keep the blogging coming. Hope you are having a somewhat happy Friday, will you be having a vistor-filled weekend?

Holland is definitely on to something. Someone (I forget who) once said that "A hospital is no place for a sick person to be". Ditto for pregnant ladies - probably because it's so friggin' boring.

And I would suggest adding Sudoku puzzles to your pile of material. And don't forget college basketball - March madness is right around the corner!

I think it's great that you called the administration out on the lack of compassion. For better or for worse, it's the squeaky wheel that gets ... heard ... or however it goes, and hopefully they'll be paying a little more attention to things like that.

And thanks for starting the blog to keep us posted. My prayers are with you.

Hi Ash,
I love this! I hope is well today- I just put Wallace to bed-today-he is a momma's boy-I think it is only because I watched nemo for the 100th time-tomorrow I may not be so lucky, Neal might do something equally amazing to a 2 year old. Our prayers are with you Ang

I would like to apologize for the comments made by sleep-deprived husband (except for the hot smokin' wife part,of course), for he know not what he does at 6 in the a.m.-he thinks he is being funny! Angie
