Happy Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving, we are off to my mother-in-law's house in Florida! I'm looking a little forward to hanging out by the pool, and enjoying some gorgeous weather! And then it's back home to the chilly stuff, and only a few weeks till Christmas. Where has the year gone?? After Christmas, we're having a "stay-cation" here in Charlotte, and will be holed up in a hotel for a few days doing stuff that we never get to do, or think of doing because we live here. And hopefully, we'll get pregnant again. After waiting for it for almost 9 weeks, I finally started having my period again, so hopefully we can get pregnant next month! Have a happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

What do you say to a Priest after he sneezes?

The other day, I found myself saying "God bless you" to a priest. It felt very wrong, but since I didn't grow up Catholic, I wasn't really sure what I should be saying to him, and didn't think my husband, who did grow up Catholic, would know, either. I was actually glad that he didn't hear me say it to him. Today, after being up all night, because I'm anxious about my sleep study that's being done tonight, I have the occasion to re-visit this in my head.

The Internet is not very helpful on this matter, except to say that you shouldn't say "God bless you" to a Bishop, or anyone higher, because they have already been blessed by God. Wouldn't a priest also have already been blessed? This is very perplexing... Anyone have an answer??
