It's a good thing you're deaf!

That's what Bill said to me when we left church. Apparently as we were leaving he kept hearing people say things like, "My word, she looks like she's going to pop!" I was blissfully unaware of such things as I was leaving. Honestly I'm pretty used to it but it would be nice if people would say other things than to comment on how big I am. Just in the last week I've heard the same tired lines like, "You're going to have your hands full!" or "Don't you know what causes that?" and "Are you sure there's just one in there." My answers follow: 1. yes, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. 2. Yes, I know what causes that...obviously we like it very much!" 3. Yes, there's only one. Deafness actually comes in handy many times. Bill's snoring has never bothered me. The stuff I catch the kids saying is band enough...I can't imagine hearing everything.

Anyway, I enclosed a picture of myself. I'm definitely close!

Well, I think you look GREAT! People can sure say the dumbest things, can't they?
Donnie and I have very different comments to the "Don't you know what causes that?" Donnie says "Yes, but we just looOOOoove pizza." and I say "Yes, and we are VERY good at it." Shuts them right up on the spot. If they are going to be rude, I'll just shock 'em into silence, lol. Donnie goes for humor.
