I know I've read it recently but thought it was outside of CD. Women have had a lot of experience in this area - cook while changing the babe while talking on the phone while crabbing at the Mr. to get of his keister and help. That's one example. Glad you were paying attention

Seems like some areas of the country are being inundated with rain. I was surprised about San Antonio getting socked. Here in my part of New England we have had nearly a week of nonstop rain. No bad T-storms, but raining cats and dogs, and really cold. Anyone who likes really lush green would love it here. Wonder what the summer will bring...more heat and humidity than usual?

Same thing here - it's been raining off and on for a couple weeks and will continue to do so. We had a dry daytime Fri. It's only 60 right now - cold.

I did add my little comment in that thread about the scientific research I had read showing that women are better at multi-tasking than men. And indeed, the speculation as to the reason that is so follows the lines of what Umbria is saying, namely that the care and protection of small children requires women to divide their attention between the children and other tasks that they may be doing at the same time.

It's the most awful feeling there is; she's fortunate she had you. She'll be waiting for you in a place where there's no sickness or suffering. But for now it's fine to cry.

Wow, that must have been a tough decision. So sorry for your loss. I hope you eventually find some peace in knowing that she didn't suffer long.
