Bring it on

Our cold-flu thing continues to worsen.

She is such a constant joy to us, that we are very excited to be having another baby girl.

Other than the pleasure our babies have brought us, 2011 continues to hold the title of the Worst Year this family has ever had.  Our health issues and employment issues continue to kick us in the groin whenever possible.  Yesterday we received one (or several?) more kick(s), but I'm now of the attitude to just say Bring It On.  Which I guess is the fight part of fight-or-flight, or some call it survivalist mode.  It was kind of funny that I recognized that about myself, because this morning our babysitter looked at me and said, "You're in survivalist mode."  I said, "You have no idea..."
