Hi!
Still cold here, but slowly warming up.
DD26 became DD27 today

DS24 comes home this weekend for a wedding - so I won't get to see too much of him, but hopefully just enough!

Debbie - do people really need gift bags?

Cindy - What will be in the kit?

Not gift bags. Bags for hotel guests. There are no favors at the wedding.

Happy birthday to you daughter MK. They grow up so fast!!!!

I just found out this morning that a friend/coworker/teammate, who is my age, had a massive stroke last night.

Prayers from my Shorties, please. I am just heartbroken for her and her family. She has three kids and nine grandkids and her family is everything.

On a lighter note - DD went in for her weekly appt and is 50% effaced and dilated a 1/2 centimeter! So things are happening!

Cindy, praying for your friend.

There will be a new baby soon! So exciting.

I am off to PT. Then errands. Added Trader Joes to my list. Need peanut butter and yogurt. I eat both almost every day.

Colder his morning here. It is fall and to be expected.

Can't believe only 13 days till wedding.

I know Becca going to NY again this weekend to get her dress. Doing this at Kleinfelds was crazy but what she wanted.

Cindy - that is so scary! It could be any one of us!
DH had a biopsy on his ear today. I hope it's not cancer . . .

Good for DD. She's on her way!

Debbie - that's what I meant - maybe skip the bags entirely!
And Fall is almost here. cold nights, but back to 70's during the days.

Made hotel gift bags today. I just want a way to thank those who are coming from out of town. I also made a basket full of things guests could possibly need during the reception for the ladies room.

MK, hope your husband's biopsy is nothing.

Going to go color my hair. Spent many hours with DS22 today. He is furloughed and not being paid. Never will because he is a contractor.

Ran all my errands. Can't find shoes. Saw some at DSW but didn't have my size so will order tomorrow.

DS had to bring his car back in today. We spent $900 on it Saturday and it failed the emissions test because of an exhaust problem.

DH coming home around 1am. Says he working from home tomorrow.

Very somber day at work yesterday.
Prognosis for my friend not good.
She has a living will and after 72 hours they will shut everything off.
Apparently there is no brain activity. At least that was the last we heard.

My team (14 of us) banded together yesterday and we put together two big baskets of food, snacks, food, puzzles, markers, crayons, games, books, coloring books - for the family and grandkids and brought to the hospital.

We are all in shock.

Thanks for the prayers...........

Yes, can't wait for the little one. I went to bed last night thinking - anytime now, I could be getting the call.

MK - prayers for DH - keep us posted.

Debbie - lots going on! I totally understand!

Off to work and dermatologist appt today, so leaving work early and then heading to the "good" Target on that side of town. I might go to Old Navy - have a return and a 20% off coupon!

Morning!

Cindy - that is so sad!!

We got the call that DH's Uncle died this morning - he had just turned 85.
, so I think it's particularly hard on her.
There are 7 siblings, and he's the first to go!

Oh Cindy, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. and

We have a parent group meeting today and there is some drama with our current school board, so I'm anticipating a long and full meeting. (nothing like drama to bring out all of us Mama Bears, me included!)

Happy Birthday Eve!

Spent day with DH after I spent a few hours at the gym. Had lunch out. Bought wine and beer for wedding. Still need soda. Went to Baltimore to pick up race shirt for charity he is running for. Had to pick up 60 pizzas for club Brooks night. It is rainy but a lot of people there for track. Now we are heading home. I work tomorrow and have PT first so will be out from 8:15 till 8 or so tomorrow.

So just in case I don't get here Happy 57 Becky!!!!!

I expected drama and emotions at yesterday's parent group meeting, I was pleasantly surprised. Even the board members that were there commented on the civility level in our meeting.

Happy Birthday Becky!

My mom has had that MK. I know any type of Cancer is scary. What do they have to do? Did they remove it??

It is our 32nd Anniversary today. They messed my work schedule up and I am working.

Going to the gym but it is pouring and I hate to go outside right now. Oh well. Guess I will get wet.

TGIF.

This has been an emotional roller coaster of a week.
Today some decision will be made about my friend. It still is not good news, so the roller coaster, I am afraid, will continue into next week.

MK - so what will they do? I just went for my yearly screening. My Dad is prone to skin cancer, and has caught so much so early because of early detection.

Becky; hope your birthday was a great one.....and you should be celebrating into the weekend!!

Debbie - are you hanging in there with all of the stuff you have going on?

Kelly! Jenn! Kaye, if you are peeking in...........

Big, big hugs............

Got my gym workout in. I am running again but only a few miles max. Next week will try three miles. I have a half marathon in December. I am on a new medication and pain almost gone unless I sit for a while. Also get pain when I try to run hills. I have to get stronger and doing a lot of exercises to strengthen my core and surrounding muscles.

Now I have to work. I asked to be off today but they put me on so I have to work.

Raining like crazy here for last few days. Hasn't stopped. As long as it stops for wedding. Also the ground needs to dry up!!!

They're going to remove it in November - it's not too serious (about the size of a dime) but they'll need to do some cosmetic surgery too.

Happy Anniversary Debbie!!!

Becky - birthday plans?

DH is in KS for his uncles funeral, DS24 is here but at a rehearsal dinner tonight and will be in a wedding tomorrow - so I won't see him too much, but we had a nice lunch together today!

Very sad Cindy. Did she have a bleed in her brain? So sorry for your loss.

Went to housewarming party. It was great. Tons of people. The house looks great. I have a feeling she will be pregnant very soon. They want a baby in 2014.

Today I will exercise, get soda for wedding and celebrate anniversary with friends who had their anniversary yesterday.

One week till the wedding. Accuweather predicts rain for next Sunday.

Bad poster Jenn checking in...

I have been sick since Tuesday. Am just now feeling better although still not 100%. Nothing major, just congestion and cough. Had a fever the first few days.

IL's are taking kids to a movie this afternoon. I am looking forward to the peace and quiet!

We may have found a house. I am cautiously optimistic...we'll see what happens.

Cindy-so sorry for your loss.

Debbie-not too much longer for the wedding! How exciting!

MK-keeping your DH in my prayers. Is that type serious?

to everyone

Debbie - those weathermen can't predict accurately that far out!
I say sunny and a beautiful fall day!!!!

Jenn - I think we all had that crud and it's like 3 weeks before DH and I got totally rid of it!

We had a "party" for DD & DSIL last night, complete with dinner, balloons and cake and ice cream......and presents too! I put together a "Momma's hospital and home survival kit" with lotion, body scrub, mints, gum, lip balm, a sleep mask, hair turban, journal, socks......I think that was it......they loved it!!!! I can't wait!
