The good news is that my niece, Madison, came to visit us for a week from Texas. She is 13 and this was her first plane ride alone. We had a great time. We went to Jen's family reunion, shopping, the zoo, swimming, and to see Harry Potter at midnight! It was a lot of fun.
The scary news is that Bryce passed his Driver's Ed class and now holds a permit for driving. Stay off the roads. In all reality he is a good driver- but man it is hard to give up that control and not act afraid.
The sad- my Grandmother is not doing well- she is 98 and they took her to the ER yesterday where she has remained in the hospital with "failure to thrive." We took the kids to see her tonight and even Bryce got teary eyed. It is very hard to watch her so terrified and fighting all the nurses- when you hold her hand she digs her thumbnail into your skin so you will leave her alone and then she pinches you. On the surface it is funny to see her so ornery- but underneath all that is a terrified lady that I love so very much.
I have a sink in my kitchen- they put it in Friday. I am so happy. The kitchen is about put together- the construction crew has left us for 2 weeks- but things seem to be functional now. Bryce gets new carpet Monday and then we can put his room together and everyone should be settled into their new rooms.
We had a Mom deliver 9 beautiful puppies- so perfect and white- and then she ate 6 of them- yes I said ate them. Sick and wrong. I guess she will not be having anymore litters.
