Andrea used to love to imitate "Bartok" a character from the 1997 Disney film Anastasia. In a near perfect rendition of this character's "bat" voice Annie would proclaim, "Stress. It's a killer!"  

 Have been under a tremendous amount of stress for the past month and it's playing a bit of havoc with my body (Bartok knew of which he spoke). Will write a proper post on Friday (hopefully things will have calmed down a bit by then). 

Before signing off, I must share a photo sent yesterday from my son-in-law with the subject line "Dress-up." Our granddaughter is holding her favorite stuffed kitty who is wearing the onesie Jocelyn designed to bring our grandson home from the hospital eight years ago...brought a smile to my face. Bittersweet:
