Nancy, honey this one is for you!
Brother John is 60 this year and not having a good time with it. His kids have planned a surprise party for him tomorrow.
You all know my darling sister broke her arm back in April and hasn't been able to come. Both daughters will be headed off to college in August, so it has been a busy time for them. But we talked about this weekend. Girls are both working and can only come in for the day. Mary left work early on Friday and headed down. She will be starting a new job July 15, but is under contract with the current company until September, so her weekends off will be very limited until the fall.
Weather here has been horrid. Friend came Thursday night to put in the AC in Mary's bedroom and caregivers got everything done here, so she could have some rest and relaxation.
We had the gift of an extra day and Mary needed some things, so off we all went. Did errands first and then off to Kohls. Mary had never been in one and was a bit overwhelmed. Bruce parked in a corner and I did the dressing room run.
Mary had picked out a top that she really liked. I did not know that at the time. She came out of the dressing room and said "what do you think?" I took one look and said "it is horrendous, go take it off." Mary is in the dressing room talking to herself - "horrendous, well it is just horrendous, horrendous." Bruce is hysterical and another customer is laughing right out loud. Apparently we are just great comic relief.
Bit later we had lunch and Mary started up again. I was in tears laughing and Mary had to run to the bathroom, she was laughing so hard. Tonight making dinner, again. And Nancy, you are right! That laugh until you . . . - so stress relieving and just a reminder that yes, life is wonderful! Those precious times are so rare. Debbie
