Busy Weekend

After the Seahawk game last night (which was very exciting I might add), Rick took off for Desert Aire with his brother. One of our neighbors on the East side called to say our roof had some serious damage in the big wind storm. I was a little bent out of shape that Rick even thought about going on a roof, but I calmed down once I knew his brother and cousin would be there doing the work. (I guess the less I know the better...I'm sure he got on the roof but I'm not asking) He made it home safe tonight and that's all that matters. He's very tired but says he's feeling pretty good.

I had a houseful today while Rick was gone. Our cousin's son Ryan is home from Texas for a visit. Ryan is proudly serving our nation and returned home from Iraq just a few short months ago. It was nice to see him and the other 20 people he brought along with him. It looked like we were having a party at the Schmitt's...but I guess everytime the Schmitt's get together it is some kind of party.

Our friends Len and Mark also joined the Schmitt gang and came loaded with "Len's Famous Mac & Cheese". I made appetizers for my guests so when Len brought the Mac & Cheese, I hid it. Sorry.... Some things just aren't for sharing.

We're getting anxious for our appointments on Tuesday and Wednesday. Like I've said before, the unknown is often much worse than just finding out what's going on. Hopefully, we'll know a lot more by Wednesday afternoon. We'll keep you all posted.

I'm heading off to bed now. I didn't get much sleep with Rick being gone last night. Amy and her friend Liz came and stayed with me so I didn't have to be alone. I guess I made Amy a little crazy...I couldn't sleep, so I kept trying to remember the words to theme songs of my favorite shows as a kid...Gilligan's Island, Beverly Hillbillies, etc...this might have been amusing, except that it was 2:30am when I was doing it. Sorry Amy.... Gilligan, the Skipper too....the millionaire, and his wife, the movie star, the professor and MaryAnne, here on Gilligan's Island.

Love you more than all the sad Cowboy fans in Texas....

Dreaming Big,
