Happy Birthday Amy & Angie

First and foremost I want to wish our daughters a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Who would have known that all those years ago they would have turned out to be the amazing women they are today? Thank you for all the happiness and joy you've given your entire family...

I've been on the go way too much lately and I paid for it last night. I ran around all day on Monday with my friend Cathy, then ran around all night with Amy celebrating her birthday. On Tuesday, I met up with my friend Kelly for a few minutes before heading to Angie's school to deliver her birthday present then take her out for lunch. On Tuesday night all the kids were at the house, we ate, played some Guitar Hero on the Wii, I packed for Tacoma then went to bed. On Wednesday morning we got up at 5:15 to take showers and head off for Tacoma for 4 days of State Basketball. After watching basketball all day yesterday, I drove back to Kirkland to meet Jake, Megan and her mom Debbie to sample some foods for the wedding. I've got a backache that has been wearing me down lately and last night it turned into a migraine headache as well. By the time I got back to Tacoma from Kirkland, I had the migraine vomiting as well (in a hotel toilet, yuk). Now, just for the record...I wouldn't have given up any of the things I did this week so I have no one to blame but myself. I feel much better this morning after a good night's sleep and a cold rag on my forehead and neck all night.

Rick has chemo again on Tuesday, I've got a scan and an appointment on Wednesday so we are going to have fun the next few days watching basketball and visiting. There's no time like the present. That's why they call it a gift.

I'd better get in the shower so we can get to the games on time. My dad and uncle drove down to Tacoma today to watch some games with us. We can't keep them waiting.

Dreaming Birthday Wishes,
