Not yet, Festive Spirit. Thanks for asking. I am going to try contacting Knights of Columbus to see if someone out there can make recommendations to him. You should really see my face, LOL! It is just so weird!

The past three days, it was gray and dull here; but I LOVE that kind of weather--sleeping weather or relaxing and reading weather, I call it. It is a little chilly right now, but it is supposed to get up into the high 80s later on. Yes, do take it easy. I hate summer colds; something's just not right about that, LOL! We leave on Tuesday for Disneyland, so I am taking care of myself for sure!

My mom was so nervous and she cried as they wheeled her off to surgery then I started to cry! (Not in front of her). Just glad that all went better than anticipated and I was so dang exhausted last night, you know, one of those "been stressed for days, everything worked out well then collapse exhaustion"! I slept like a rock.
Sending prayers for a speedy recovery for your mom!

While in the waiting room a Southern Living Christmas magazine was sitting there. That was a nice surprise. Also I ran into a friend in the waiting room that I have not seen in over 20 years! She was waiting on a friend who was having surgery and it sure helped pass the time away quickly catching up on so much!
Thanks for the update ... such a relief to hear that everything went well and you were able to get a good sleep.

As for the Christmas magazine and the unexpected friend---I begin to feel that Someone Up There looks out for us MMC people and was helping you to get through your difficult day. I know when something unexpectedly Christmassy pops up in my path, I think of all of you.

I had one of those nights, too, XmasTidings! We must be twins, LOL! But I have too much to do and won't get a nap until lots later! I am lucky, though, since I don't have to go in to school any more. I am already on my fourth cuppa!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day

Disneyland! Post pictures, please!

For some reason, Disney has been hovering around my life lately. First Trackrebel mentioned "The Aristocats," and then I discovered some of the Disney soundtracks of my youth are available digitally, and I found an LP on Amazon from my kidhood that I should've hung onto in the first place. I saw a Mickey Mouse planter peeking at me from someone's flower bed on my morning commute yesterday. And now you're going to Disneyland! Something's in the air.

Having good role models is so important. I hope your church is able to fill that position soon.

I took the kids for their Wednesday evening teen meeting at church, and the youth leader that has energized all these kids announce that he has to move back home to KY. They're all heartbroken, and I'm disappointed. He had really gotten the kids revved up for church functions again. Hopefully, we can get another youth leader like him.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Now don't forget to take care of yourself, too. That way, you will be able to take care of your mom (LOL, like she will let you), take care of all the babies, and keep up your strength. Is your mom in a lot of pain? Did they put a cast on her foot? Give her our get-well wishes!

I actually came on here last night from my cell phone but it was the first time I visited the site from a smart phone and just having a little trouble navigating the site. I will figure it out, just didn't have time due to being busy at the hospital last night so I just email Made to pass word along.

I scanned through all the post quickly because I got to go take care of my parent's cats, give one of them medication and get to the hospital.

Thanks to everyone here for good thoughts and prayers!
