Get With It

Many times this past two weeks, I have wanted to set down and write...but "things" keep getting in the way. You know.."things" like work..life..cooking...

Last weekend, Mom, John and I went to Arkansas for my cousin Gaye's daughter's wedding. They were so excited to see us!! Usually when we get together, it is under bad circumstances. The last time we saw Gaye, and her mom, Mck, it was for my dad's funeral in 2005. We had to make it to the wedding...we need to come together in good, as well as bad times!! It was so nice to get to know the cousins and their families. Kelly, Gaye's sister in law, did the most beautiful job transforming the old church in Almyra into a moderan space. Beautiful greenery was all over with white candles. Going across the street, to the Community Center, was a pleasure...after they covered the outdated panelled walls with white fabric and blue fabric over the ceiling. Tehy had a fantastic band. Amber was beautiful.

Driving from the airport (after SW found Mom's lost luggage) was interesting. Talk about flat land!! There were areas with lots of different trees, changing colors..next to a field that was just harvested. I love to see the big round bales of hay sitting in the field. It reminds me of how we sometimes feel alone in the big world.

I have had the worst headace for the past few days. I know it is a combo of the trip, the weather, and my allergies. But...it still makes me nervous whenever I do not feel at least 85%...There is always the fear in the back of my mind that the BIG C will come back. This week is the annual squish test...FUN!! At least I got my cast off this week. My foot feels wonderful today...why should I wear the boot this week??? Oh yea...I am trying to be a compliant patient. What nurse is compliant???

This week should be interesting at work...No Bonnie..Marilyn will be in three part days..Hope Roberta continues to work out OK....

Will just made a pineapple upsidedown cake...We shall see!!!

Until next time.....
