Tai Chi and the Power of the Moon

5pm Tuesday and all is still quiet on the Baby Watch for all of you blogging buddies who care.

Another long day is about to toddle off into the history books and it doesn't look like it will be marked as Smudge's birthday. Maybe tomorrow.

I am only doing things with half of my brain these days, but am managing to get through each day with joy. Amazing how that works huh?

I must say that Tai Chi class this morning was wonderful, and just what I needed to sooth my rumpled nerves. I am absolutely loving the calm beauty of this artful form of exercise. I didn't know if I would like not having music to move to, but the peace and quiet of the routine only adds to the beauty of it. We all move as one to an inner music and the silent ballet is so moving. I love it, love it, love it. Today's class was especially calming and soothing. Ahhhhhhh, that's better.

Phone calls and emails have been coming in a lot today wondering how Butterfly is doing. One neighbour said that she was sure the baby would come tonight because it is a full moon and everyone knows that maternity wards are full during a full moon. We shall see. Come on Smudge. Grandma and Grandpa are waiting.

I will keep you posted.

Okay, just checking! I hope you don't go stir crazy!

My water broke at the full moon and the hospital was overcrowded with women in labor.

Keep doing that Tai Chi. Baby will be here soon...

I know how you feel, 5 grandchildren and the waiting never got any easier. But, boy oh boy, when those tiny little bundles finally did arrive...WOW!

Tai Chi is wonderful for body and soul, good idea.
