Musician in the family

I'm pretty sure laughing is a prescribed medication. I spent the day with my girls again (Amy was laying in bed sick, but that didn't seem to stop Angie & I) Thankfully, Amy is feeling better tonight. Jacob and I spent the early evening together running errands and laughing. Hanging out with my family can be more of a workout on my abs than a pilates class.

Though my kids were all too busy with sports and other activities to take band in school, I learned today that Angie can play the "lip trumpet". This afternoon, I would sing a song and she would accompany me while humming through her lips. We could hardly look at each other while "performing" because the laughter took over and we would have to start over again. How could I have missed knowing about this talent? It is funnier than heck. The next time you see her ask for a mini-concert.

My friend Ann and her son Michael were here to visit today. They have been living in Arizona but will be moving back soon. It was nice to see them. I can't wait for the full time version again. Hopefully we will get to visit with them again before they head back to the "heat". I had coffee with Lindsay and her dad this morning and that too, was a great visit. It sure is nice slowing down long enough to visit people you care about.

I've been attempting to put photos on the blog but it doesn't seem to be working anymore. I'm not sure what the problem is but I'll keep trying. I never claimed to be really good on the computer. I am, however better on the computer than I am with math (though that's not saying much)

Hopefully Rick and I will be heading over to Desert Aire this weekend. The kids are all staying home (some of them have to work on Monday - Sorry kids) I have a couple of books I've been wanting to read and I can take naps better over there. Rick needs to relax more, too. He has taken on way too much since my diagnosis. Desert Aire is our place to get away from it all.

If I don't send any messages in the next few days, it's because I'm not near a computer. Please have a safe and happy 4th of July if I don't talk to you before then. It is always a dangerous time of year and since I don't have anything else on my mind I will worry about all of you until the 5th.
Doreen's 5 rules for the 4th-
1. Do not drink and drive (and light fireworks) Bad combination
2. Do not hold Roman candles in your teeth. (unless you've always wanted dentures)
3. Do not use a "lit fireworks" as a centerpiece on your picnic table
4. Do not light fireworks in a barn filled with hay
5. Have fun...

Love you more that all the illegal fireworks on an Indian reservation.

Dream Big,
