Cold front almost here/How much milk in your cereal?

Nice and quiet in the tropics! Yay!!!

A front it moving across the central US and producing some severe weather in Illinois this evening as I write this post. On Monday, there will be thunderstorms over south Texas and the southeast as well as the Great Lakes states, the northeast and the Eastern seaboard. Highs will be in the 40s and 50s over the Great Lakes states. Lots of 80s and 90s across the southeast and south Texas. 100+ in the desert southwest. 70s and 80s along the west coast. 80s and 90s Intermountain Region. 60s northern plains. 60s and 70s Midwest, central plains and north Texas.

Houston, there could be an isolated storm. It will be a warm day initially. Then a cold front moves through in the early afternoon. This will be usher in some lower humidity and morning temperatures will be in the 60s for a couple days starting Tuesday. Next cold front arrives Friday with thunderstorms. Should be a pleasantly mild weekend coming up.

Let's do milk or leche, pronounced leh-CHAY. How much leche do you like with your cereal. See AND MORE for a discussion.

Well, I've been meaning to bring this up for a while and now, I just can't wait anymore. It's the cereal know--the amount of milk. I finally got it through my head that my husband just doesn't like a lot of milk in the cereal. You can definitely see the cereal in his bowl. Some of it is longing to be wet. Now I on the other to drown it. I want there to be milk left over and then I like to drink it all up. Now, this is not a toilet paper over/under thing, but I think this could be a pattern found in most marriages. Therapists say that we subconciously look for a mate who rounds us out. And even though these differences often drive us crazy, it is precisely those differences that our subconcious knows we need to make it through this world in the most optimal fashion. I'll bet if you checked with your spouse, you would find that they like the amount of milk in the cereal to be opposite the level you like. Let me know...I think this might be book material.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about a sweet little angel (Courtney) with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. She had been a special guest at The Wiggles when we got to meet them. Courtney's mother and grandmother are valiantly fighting to get the funds they need for her care. As part of that effort, Courtney recently got to meet Elvis. For more, see this article:

Sarah turned 8 this weekend. I thank God that she is so healthy and has such a zest for life. We enjoyed looking at pictures of her as a very tiny baby. She was 4 lb 15 oz at birth. Now, she is a 70 lb bruiser! Wow! I can barely move her much less pick her up any more. Happy Birthday Sarah!!!

Just heard back from Randy Beall, close friend and president of Parents and Researchers Interested in Smith-Magenis Syndrome (PRISMS). The web site is This is the syndrome that Sarah has. He said 300 families attended the international conference and there are only 650 known cases in the world. When we first got Sarah diagnosed, we were told that the incidence rate is 1 in 25,000. Now, the researchers announced they think it is 1 in 15,000. The first would have been 250,000 people in the the number is more like 400,000. Obviously, it is way underdiagnosed (some because of mis-diagnosis).

Congratulations and best wishes to Megan!!! She got her first job at a place that cares for cats. She starts tomorrow!!! When she volunteered at CAP, they called her The Cat Lady, because she was so good with cats. Yep...they are getting a good one!

Have a great week everyone!
