I have two daughters home but one is still out. I'm getting sleepy so I'm going to nap for a little bit while I wait for her to get in. I hope everyone has a very good night!

Thanks, Meceka. These pics were made before I found out that I don't have bone cancer, so can you imagine how much I am smiling now?

LOL, HomemakinGirl! Kids--what can you do? I remember wanting to spend the weekend with my friend--I had been sick for two weeks and we had planned the sleepover before I got sick. I had been out of school, and that Friday, I had begged to go to school because I knew that if I did not go to school, I could not go to Suzanne's. I got up, got dressed in a new outfit, and fainted before I got to the breakfast table. I really wanted to go over to Suzanne's so badly that I was willing to go to school sick. Needless to say, I didn't go to the sleepover!
