Jeff is Coming!

Today just keeps getting better.

My brother Jeff just booked his flight to come see me!

I am thrilled that he's coming.

The last time I saw him was at Brian and Nicole's wedding in 2007. We have talked on the phone since then, though, hee hee.

So, he'll be here next weekend.

(Too bad he couldn't work it out for this weekend, while my parents are here, because it would have been a mini Granger reunion.)

Happy Dance!

I am back in bed, so the happy dance is more like a happy wiggle.

Status Report:  I'm taking a nap now. P and O are off getting the car serviced. Nurse Judy will be here for my weekly hospice checkup some time before noon. Lou is supposed to be working, but I can hear him out in the kitchen shooting the breeze with the painter.

And I am supposed to be working but I'm reading your blog about how Lou is supposed to be working but is talking to the painter.

It's viral, I tell ya.

I'm supposed to be working, too! I'd rather say good morning to you, Karen. Hooray for your brother's upcoming visit. Hope you have a great day with Patsy and Omer--and Lou.

Love, Jeannie

So glad to hear that you will have a visit with your brother!
Couple thoughts on your tight waistband issue: when my sister was pregnant, she used a rubber band through the buttonhole and then wrapped that around the waistband buttons. With an overblouse, no one knew any different.Also, if you have pants with elastic in the waistband, I might be able to strategically snip the elastic to elongate it (my mother's favorite technique).

And now a true funny story: Years ago when I was teaching music appreication, I gave a quiz on the instruments of the orchestra. One student correctly identified the bassoon as a baritone wind instrument, and then proceeded to say that a Contrabassoon was what the bassoon took so that there wouldn't be a lot of little piccolos running around!

Enjoy your day with your parents and Lou. Hope your day is relatively pain free.

That's really nice that your brother is coming for a visit. I just got back from a wedding in MA (our home state) and got to see my family. I had nice visits with my cousin who has ovarian cancer and my brother who has melanoma. I'm grateful for every visit that I have with them.

Had some scallops while I was there :-)

Hi Karen, excited for you that your brother is coming for a visit. Too bad that he'll miss your folks. But you'll have him all to yourself that way. :-) anyway, glad you're having a good day with your folks. I can just picture you in your new capris.

Hi Karen.

Happy 4th of July. Teddy here in our development must have thought last night was the 4th and proceeded to send off fireworks for about fifteen minutes. They were beautiful. Wish you could have been here to see them. Glad your brother is coming. Something to look forward to.

Luv ya!
