I gave in to the icky belly... I'm home and comfy in the pink recliner. I ended up only missing about two hours work today, which isn't so bad, I guess...

Stubby loves the pink recliner too. It almost looks like one of those chairs that they used to have in hospital rooms. It's really more of a mauve than pink... and I've had it since we moved here but I've had it in the living room. Moving it to my room was sheer genius! It's my new nest! Now my bed is reserved just for sleeping!

My Codester is flying to California tomorrow. His fiancee Marquee's family is from Bakersfield. Her grandpa died on Sunday and they are having the funeral on Friday in Bakersfield. My first response was, "You can go see Jen!" He said he'll still be a good ways from Stockton (what do I know of California geography?)... so I said, "be sure to eat fried artichoke hearts!" He didn't get it. I had to tell him it was sorta like the CA version of boiled peanuts.

I'm not sure where Ryan is this week. Life changes so quickly... one day you've got a backseat full of kids complaining, "he's touching me!" and the next day you need mapquest to keep up with them... they're scattered to the winds. The best reward for a parent, in my opinion, is raising kids who can live independent lives. I'm proud of my boys.

My Auggie is still here with me... making blueberry muffins for dinner for me.

Love and hugs, y'all!

Hi mommy! I'm in Knoxville, TN for the rest of the week. I was offered an opportunity to fly to south Texas soon and do a job all by myself, which is a big step, and a pretty clear indication of my company's trust in me. I'm a little nervous, but I know I have Dan, charlie, mark, and dave to support me if I have any problems so I know I'll be okay.

Anyhow, hope ya get to feelin better.

Love ya!

Mmmmm yeah! Fried artichoke hearts!! Those were the BEST!!

But how can you beat eating fried artichoke hearts in a red hot mustang convertable with the top down going 'bout 95 on the freeway heading towards Monterey?? LOL.

Oh boy, what crazy memories!!
