Jacob finally came home from the Christian retreat, and is very, very intense about his convictions now. He got out of the car and hugged his mama and hugged me...in public...for longer than 1 second! It's all he's talked about since he got home. Bless his heart.

Our family vacation keeps getting pushed out for other things. Now we can't go when we planned because Elizabeth has auditions for the Nutcracker. Last year, she missed the audition and went to late auditions and only got a small part. She wants a larger role this year, but has to be here that week to get it. I doesn't look like vacation is in the cards for us this year. Oh well.

I hope y'all have a great day!

We are right there with you in spirit, Merry. Incisions do hurt, so I hope Mr. recovers soon. Take care of yourself, too!

Mr. had some breakfast and was up and around in the hallway this morning with his I.V.-on-wheels, but his incision is very sore. When I talked to him this morning on the phone, he sounded good, but hadn't been examined yet by the neurosurgeon. I'm anxious to find out whether the shunt system was contaminated by the infection, because if it was, that might mean more surgery and a few weeks in the hospital. I'm going to see him on my way home from work tonight---hoping for good news.

So, my grandma has her husband, her mother, her great-grandbabies in the hospital, and lost a grandson yesterday. Prayers for grandma would be appreciated! She's an amazing woman and I have a tremendous amount of respect for her and love her dearly. It breaks my heart all that has gone on, and breaks my heart to see her with so much on her. She's strong and is surrounded by family, and she's one tough woman!

I'll move on but just had to give a shout-out to grandma because she's my hero!

Well, in spite of everything, I am excited about July 4th! We bought things for our annual cook-out over the weekend...and I can't wait to make some boneless beef ribs, brats, hot links, and some other stuff. Our neighbors come over, and we can see a great fireworks show from the front lawn. Moore is continuing on with the celebration and I think it's awesome for the community since this has been such a hard summer with the tornadoes. Moore needs some fun and by golly we're going to have it Thursday come hades or high water!

Alright, sorry to rant. Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!
rant away that is why we are here, to support in good times and not so good times.
You have been through and continue to go through some rough situations.
Many many ((((HUGS)))) to you and your family, and also many many prayers.

So glad you are able to take some time out and relax and celebrate that life continues and there are still many things to enjoy and laugh about.

I love Monsters Inc! I want to see the new one. My kids saw it with their grandparents, but me and their mother weren't invited! Pretty rude, if you ask me. Enjoy your day with Kandice!

That's nice of you to give up your vacation for Elizabeth's audition. Hopefully you can squeeze in some weekend trips to the mountains.
