Friday the 13th

We started the day with a trip to the cardiologist for Michael. No news....more tests next week. This means we are NOT flying home Wednesday. 

We dropped by and had lunch at Mom and Dad's. 

We spent a couple of hours with Sherri (Sister in law) and Will. 

We met the girls for dinner. 

We picked up Mom T and went to Krista's softball game. We couldn't make connections with Mom G - she was out thrift store shopping.  It was a perfect night for a softball game...not cold, not hot. 

Krista plays on a co-ed team from her church and they play in a city league. Last night they played a team which was undefeated.  They led until the very last inning....good showing.

This a.m. has started rough.....Arielle got something in her eye when she was messing with her contact and is quite a bit of pain, Zander burned his hand at breakfast, Stacia's toe is still bothering her (can't enjoy the pool), Gpa has pneumonia so we'll stay away from there for a bit and pray no one else gets it, and there is a fair amount of let down as we'd hoped to have the "all-clear" to travel home.  

Stacia and Zander DID amuse the breakfast lounge with thrilling tales of neighborhood battles, tsunamis and earthquakes. They could take this act on the road. I just stared into space and muttered, "That poor man with those kids." ::snort:: Didn't work too well: as I was sneaking out of the lobby, I was stopped, "Your kids are charming." Me - "well, they're certainly talkative." LOL They are charming....I just could use charming a bit later in the day. LOL we regroup, take care of various owies.....try to connect with Mom G again and remind ourselves our task is to Choose Joy! LOL 

Choosing Joy!

Better for Dad to rest and heal so we can enjoy next week together. Tests won't be finished until Wed afternoon so we'll be here until after that. ::snort::

Kim - Love you!
