Just wanted to say Hi to everyone. I have been super busy the last three days helping a friend put together everything for a BIG party tonight. Her DD is graduating from nursing school with her RN. There will be 75 guests
it should be a blast and there is certainly a lot of good food.

I will be back to read the thread and catch up. Hope everyone is having a great Saturday.

Ann
Congrats to you friend's daughter!

Thank you, however, Arline surprised us all, and is still with us. They moved her into rehab and out of hospice, and we're going to see how things go with a temporary feeding tube. If she has the potential for recovery, we're giving her the chance. She has some amount of brain damage and loss of mobility, and we'll have to take it day by day.

As you all probably know, our younger DD lives in the same town we do. She was a theater performance major in college and discovered that a recession is not the best time to enter the arts as a profession. Well, to be quite honest, when is?!?!? Anyway, after graduation 4 years ago she came home for a few months and found a job at our bank here in town. She discovered she has really enjoyed this and has decided to stick with it for a while. But, we all knew that she needed to spread her wings. The time has come!

She and her room mate found an apartment in Alexandria (one hour north of us) and started applying for jobs in the area. As of Wednesday they are both gainfully employed in their chosen areas and they pick up the keys for their new apartment today. They have 10 days to vacate the apartment here in F'burg so we are going to take a few car loads of things up over the next couple of weekends and that will leave them with just one smallish truckload of big things to move on the 31st.

I have tapped a couple of my HS students who are brawny and not working this summer to help with the load in from this end. I think they ought to be able to handle finding someone to help on the north end of the move too. At least I hope they can because I will be teaching that day and cannot help!

So, today I get to see the apartment. Tomorrow I get to see the apartment. And tomorrow night we are going to see "Batman." Big weekend here!
This is great Elin! And she's not too far from you, she can have her independence but still come home.

good catch on seeing it..
This is what I thought as well.

I am worried about my father, he is a strong man but feels deeply for his little brother, they have grown very closer over the past couple of years. and he is taking it very hard.

My Dad had cancer a couple of years ago, and was able to find it very early, treat and has been in remission since, is younger brother, did not know he had cancer until it was almost too late, and they tried everything even experimental treatments, and his older sister has been battling cancer for two years now and also has never been in remission. All three of them have had different forms and responded differently that each other.

I think it is just so close to home, know that all three siblings have/had a form of cancer.
I'm so sorry for your dad.

Alison- sorry for jumping the gun, my reading skills have been a bit off this week. Continued prayers for her.

Brandi - prayers for your father as well. My dad has battled cancer twice in his life, once 35 years ago (colon) and then more recently prostate cancer. Thankfully he came out if both, and I'm hoping your dad can remain just as strong even when it gets tough. If you need anyting, just let me know.

we did not and I am kicking myself for not staying, but it was a great win... We watched it from the house at the very end.

It took us over an hour to get from the park back home.

Does anyone know when to expect Christmas decorations to go up in November. I've stayed at WL in the past and they would usually go up about 2 weeks into November. I didn't know if this was standard for all resorts or not.
