Yeah, she said it was all straightened out and the entire stay would count as '09. And... once again there was no talking her out of anything. I know if I were there, I would not be able to keep my mouth shut, or I would have anxiety issues, etc., etc., etc... I wouldn't not be able to advocate for her, and that's hard since she is choosing everything I would advocate against, just to get the baby out. No idea what to think, because again, she never struck me as the type of person who would do all of this. But we have all tried to talk her out of it, and she is still dead set on it.
Hearing the details about what is about to happen sure brought back a ton of trauma for me. I processed for a long time this morning with my mom, and we kind of decided together that I should bow out. She also thought it would be best for me to just have Todd call her and let her know I wouldn't be there, so I wouldn't get emotional when I was on the phone with her, which could also be upsetting. I got through the call OK, then broke down and cried for a while longer... then met up with a friend, and processed a bunch more.
I thought I was over that, but I'm starting to think you are never over it.

My Etsy store did better than I was expecting and now I'm in the market for a brand spanking new pressure canner.
Any suggestions. Looking for something that can do 6-7 quarts at a time. I'd love to be able to can left over soups and such. I just don't eat them when I freeze the left overs.
