A Long Weekend Coming Up

Ok, I understand that I do not work on Friday's so technically every weekend is a long one for me, but, I have to say that there are days where I wouldn't mind working full time, and today is one of those days. Nothing really specific, but the girls were on a holy terror today. So goes life.

I took the kids at work to the pool yesterday and was talented enough to burn the heck out of my poor pale skin. Never fear. It will just peel and go back to the original white within a week or so. But until then it's cold showers for me and limited exposure to the sun.

We got the girls pictures back and they are wonderful. It was really hard to decide on which ones to pick since the photographer did such an amazing job, but somehow we managed and they are proudly hanging on the wall where they will remain FOREVER.

I wish I had more to write about, but my brain seems to be failing me right now. There have been so many times when something has happened that I thought "Hey, I should write about that" and then I forget what I was going to write about. That seems to be how I have been the last month or so. I am not sure what is causing that, but for example, routine things at work, things I have been doing for years, have slipped my brain. It's so frustrating since I usually have a good memory. Just ask Dion.

I am going to Mayo on Monday for my study shot where I will be able to see my buddy Hope. I might also see another cancer friend who I met about 2 years ago who also happens to cut my hair in town. She had colon cancer, and I saw her yesterday and it seems as though her cancer is back, and with a vengeance. It's sad. It always is, and it also reminds me that it could easily be me.

I got an email from my best friend saying that she is not able to have any more kids. I called her right away and we talked for a bit. She has one daughter who is about 4 months older than Claire. I could only hope to be as good of a mom as she is. It is so unfair that someone who wants more kids so bad has had this happen. They had been trying and going to doctors and specialists for 19 months and just got the news this week that basically there is nothing that can be done for her. If you could see her with her daughter, you would see the injustice in all of this. That there's people out there who could care less about their children, and then there's my friend. It goes to show you that life really isn't fair all of the time. I can only listen and just be there for her, as she has done for me so many times.

Well, maybe something will happen this weekend that I can write about. Dion's birthday is Tuesday, but I have no clue as to what we are doing. I'll have to ask him what he wants to do. Until next time.....
