It will be a busy week for us. My mom is getting ready for surgery Wednesday and is very nervous. I am no help because I am nervous too! She is such a highly active person and I hate seeing her not being able to get around much and hurting but after this surgery and healing she will be back to her old self. I cannot wait to move forward with it all!

I really appreciate everyone's concern, thoughts and prayers for her!!!

Good news, I got a raise at work. Completely unexpected! Every time I get one it's unexpected. They told me I am doing a great job and they love having me there. 10 years there and I still love that place!!!

Then at work we had a funny incident. I was waiting on this man who was buying a rooster from us. We usually go get the rooster out of the cage, put it in a box then bring it to the counter. Instead, this man brought the rooster to the counter and was waiting on us bringing a box. We had a lot of customers around and when I brought the box the rooster flipped out making a lot of noise then hopped all over the counter jumping on people and knocking stuff all over the place. That poor little guy was scared but it seems that everyone was entertained by the mess he made. He broke a lid on a jar of local honey so I got a discount on it and bought it! =)

I felt bad for the rooster but we are suppose to get them and put them in a box to prevent that, not have the customer bring them to us but it all worked out! In the end the rooster has a new home!

Have a great day everyone!
Calming thoughts for you and your mom---the anxiety will be behind you soon.

The unexpected emergencies at your workplace are so different (and so much more entertaining!) than the ones at my office! Glad to hear the rooster is okay.

I'm sorry I couldn't catch up with everyone's posts over the last few days. I hope you are all well and coping with whatever life is throwing at you.

It would be fun to see that, but I am sure you cannot share, darn it!

It was a great weekend! I know I bragged on her last week, but Elizabeth was WONDERFUL in her ballet recital Saturday evening! They have the recitals professionally recorded, so we can't bring in camcorders or cameras. It's a little irritating, but on the other hand, I got the watch the recital on stage, instead of through the viewfinder. Of course, now I have to buy a $25 DVD.

More work to do on the Camaro this week. I swear, I thought we'd be driving by now. With unlimited funds, we probably would have been. As it is, it'll probably be well in the summer before it's ready for the street. Oh, well. We're having a good time working together on it.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Thanks, Ryan. In addition to free breakfast, Mass, and flowers and cards, we went to dinner for Mexican food. I got a free dessert--cappuccino cheesecake!

I love your work stories! They always make me smile. Keep reminding us about your mom. I definitely don't want to forget to pray on that day, especially.
