Welcome, Parker James!

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

So, as of last night, I’m a grandma! Here’s the scoop, from Parker’s dad who is a PR guy- of course a very tired and excited one, but he works well under pressure.

Isn’t this a great picture of the new family? They are all three so beautiful. I’m feeling so fortunate that I was able to share in the excitement thru the miracle of internet/skype/and all that.

As much as I love Mexico, my heart is in Seattle right now. Welcome to the world, Parker James, and I’ll be there to hold you in April. XOXO

So, I’m in San Miguel (as of 12/28.) Mom is doing much better; she’s got lots of support in place, and home visits by a nurse & PT guy, so we decided it would be ok for me to leave. I still check in almost daily, and things seem to be going well.

I usually get to San Miguel before the crowds, but this time I arrived with the crowd. The season is in full swing, with parties, plays, concerts, films, benefits… way too much for one person to do.

One funny note… My former landlady from Pt Townsend is down this year, with another friend from PT. We all went to “Women’s Night Out” last night (the best networking event in SMA) & were laughing about how well PT was represented. It turned out that sitting next to us was ANOTHER PT woman, whom none of us had met. I know of about 8 PT people here right now, and that’s from a town of about 8,000.

I’m heading for a day spa this afternoon & dinner w/friends followed by a production of  Inherit the Wind at the Biblioteca. Had to miss knitting group at St Paul’s to wait for the internet guy… (yes, this is a typical sort of day… except for the day spa.)

Tomorrow, after Bodega de Sorpresas (little shop of surprises) at the Biblioteca, (weekly thrift shop), I’m hoping to head for El Charco del Ingenio, the botanical garden.
