Are You Sure It's Only Tuesday?

I can NOT believe that it's not Friday yet. I don't even remember last Friday. I think I need a vacation. My mom has been sick and in the hospital. Good thing....she's home today. Feeling weak and coughing but at least it was not pneumonia. She got out this morning just in time to accompany Daddy and I to his Dr. appt. After waiting 2 1/2 hours to see this Dr. I think we were all ready to go. There is absolutely NO excuse for a Dr. to keep his patients waiting that long with no explanation. I finally had to open the door because I was starting to feel claustrophobia coming on! Plus, I wanted to see what was so important out there that he was not in with us. After leaving there with really no more answers but a few more explanations I started to compose myself again.

Ashley had a wonderful baby shower on Saturday. It has been a long time since I have seen so many people turn out for a shower. There had to be over 100 people there. I think she can now officially open her own BabiesRUs. What wonderful friends! Then the lovely part was that at least 8 of her best friends, all the way from Kindergarten were there. I got a picture of them all together......all grown up but all still gorgeous. They had a great time remembering when. BA's mom came and brought a friend and we really enjoyed getting to meet her. Both great grandmothers were there. Now, we are ready to get Possum here. That is what I call her.

Speaking of vacations........several weeks ago during one of these "funk" days like I am having today, I called a made reservations for our entire family at the beach this summer. It is at a very nice resort style hotel and I booked the penthouse overlooking the pool with the balcony overlooking the ocean. I could not afford it all but I did it anyway. Somehow, I will have the money when the time gets here. We are all super excited about it. By that time, Possum will be here and her new cousin, Baby Duck. Baby Duck isn't due until just a few weeks before we go so she better be on time! I plan to rock babies on the balcony for a week. It'll be a great opportunity for the new mommies to get some rest and sun while they are at it.

In the meantime, I'll dream of ocean waves and babies and count off the days until then. I have to have something to look forward to in order to make it through. It's just an earthly vacation and an earthly goal. I do have loftier ones and that includes an all expense paid trip to Heaven. I don't even need a reservation for that one. I think it is already made.

So glad Mom is home & Dad's got in to see the doctor. He sounded relieved to be back on the road to normal when I talked to them on the phone tonight. Thanks so much for being there & making sure they are going to the doctors & all the other stuff you do everyday. Rocking babies at the beach sounds wonderful. Wonder when our little peanut will be here???? I need something to be day dreaming about!
Love you, Sissy
