My intentions were good, my information was incomplete. I still want to help our friend Garry's wish come true, I just need to get more information to you before we proceed. Thanks to many of you who tried...
This morning was busy. I met up with Cathy and her newly engaged daughter, Anna. We chatted for nearly 2 hours (in our comfy Starbuck's chairs). Then it was off to get my new glasses (I can see now). Then a trip to Bartell's to have some photos made and pick up a few travel items. I stopped at a friends and pulled her hair through a frosting cap while we visited then I went home. I know you're thinking...shouldn't she be getting ready for her trip?
Tonight, I met up with Bev Kopp (a dear friend and budding photographer) who brought me a disk of the photos she had taken at our house during our early Christmas celebration. I can't wait to share them with you, but I'm having a problem loading them into my computer. I promise when I figure it out, you'll be the first to see them.
We went to dinner tonight with my Mom and Dad. The kids had a gift to give them and what better reason to go out for dinner than a celebration with your parents? Angie had a basketball game to ref in Stanwood at 7:00 so we met before that. Rick and I stopped by the high school and watched her in action. Isn't it funny how we used to be in the gym to watch her play, then coach, now ref? I never tire of watching any of our kids.
Jake has been in Seattle since Friday. Megan's family had an annual dinner party with friends and Jake has been invited for the past 3 years. I hope he'll continue to be invited for the next 50 years. With their lives being so busy, Jake and Megan don't get to see much of each other, so now that they are both on a break, they thought they would take advantage of it. He'll be home today sometime.
It's 3:00am and I can't seem to sleep (doesn't that sound like a song?.. maybe I could become a song writer during my insomnia moments). Perhaps vacation anxiety is setting in. I woke up this morning with puffy, baggy eyes - very attractive. My sleep pattern seems to be out of whack right now. I think that's a common side effect of cancer drugs. Oh well, it just gives me more time to write on the blog. Rick has blood work done today to make sure all of his red and white blood counts are doing ok before we leave. If there are any problems, he can start medications right away.
Until tomorrow, sweet dreams....
