Okay now. . .this is crazy

I cannot believe this week.

Seriously. It's already Friday. It's the 25th of July (5 months 'til Christmas). In three weeks, both of my kids will be in school.

It's too soon. And, on the other hand, it's not soon enough.

I am truly sorry for the crazy week I've had, which has led to a vacant blog. No one likes a vacant blog. . .or a neglected blog. And I have been/done both this week.

Seriously apologize for that.

Hmmm. What has happened this week? Let's see:

Edison got his braces off. I know. I know. I have NOT yet taken photos of his beautiful teeth. That is coming. Pinkie swear.

Mark got some good news and some bad news. He received a handsome bonus at work -- a real blessing. Mark has not just one, but two hernias. (Herniia? Plural spelling, please)

He got to meet Dr. McPersonality today. Of course, he likes him. He thinks he's perfectly fine, friendly, and wonderful. I still say he has all the personality of the pine cones that are falling into my back yard. But, I guess it's just me.

He has surgery scheduled for NEXT WEDNESDAY. Yeah. We get the diagnosis of one hernia on this past Monday, and today, we learn that there are twins ... and that they're being fixed next week.

I guess it's good to get things taken care of in a timely manner, eh?

So, the next week or so is going to be. . .uh, let's say "interesting" and leave it at that, 'kay?

Caroline went to the Cardiologist today -- just for a friendly visit. Seriously.

He is helping the Down syndrome group with a project for Buddy Walk, and we just popped in (for an hour) to talk about the project, take some pictures for his website and for this project, and just "catch up." What? You don't go for social visits with your child's medical specialists?

I guess I really do have a life, eh?

So, other than playing for a wedding this weekend -- I'm just a musician for hire (don't know the bride or groom) -- I'm trying to keep both oars in the water. I feel like the candle that's being burned at both ends is cracking in the middle, too, but in the infamous words of Gloria Gaynor. . .
"I will survive!"

Have a blessed weekend. . . in case I don't get back on here!

AWWWW, Angie, bless your bones.
I'm so sorry. Forget the "whenever it rains it pours" 'bout hurricanes and tornadoes?? I'll be praying for you all. Maybe I can even lend a hand if you need me (to Caroline?)

Sorry for the craziness. But like the doc said about the kidney-stones,

"This too shall pass".

Ouch!!!! It's funny when they get those braces off. They are all teeth, at least my kids were.
Did you get my e-mail. Just checking.

OH Angie...what a week! Sheesh! Good and bad news. I hope all will be well with Mark sooner rather than later. Take care and try to rest up where possible this weekend.

Two hernias...ouch!! If you need anything let us know. Barry goes back to work tomorrow, and James goes to daycare Tuesday and Wednesday this week. :(

We'll be praying for Mark.
