Good morning, DDA!

It's about to get a little crazier around here (hard to imagine, eh? ) Dad turned 15/60 on Wednesday so we're having a smallish party for him tomorrow. My grandma and aunt came in on Wed and are staying with Kristi, my parents' good friends are coming in today and staying with us, and my dad's old co-worked will be in tomorrow. Should be lots of fun, but that means I've got some cakes to bake! (Of course, that's the best part in my book. )

Luckily, Miss Deva's finally feeling much better, so that helps. Still a little clingy, but it's much easier to hold her and bake than it was to hold and clean.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Sounds like a great weekend, Tia. Your Dad and I are the same age (not including the Leap Age).

Good morning, DDA!

Finally... I thought this weekend would NEVER get here! I have a very light teaching load the next two days: three private lessons today and one class tomorrow morning. Then, I am FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE for the first time in a month. And you know what I am doing??? (sadly, I am not going to Disney World)

Kristin and her room mate and I are headed to Richmond tomorrow afternoon. We have reservations at the Omni there for one night.

We have reservations at one of our favorite restaurants for dinner tomorrow night.

And we have tickets for "The Lion King" at The Landmark Theater for Sunday!

Bob is staying home by himself! He has not been completely alone since January 17, 2011. Our neighbors know he will be here and will check on him. We are only an hour away if necessary, too. It is time we both realize that he can do this.

Good morning, DDA! We aren't completely sunny today, and we're getting a little snow, but Wednesday is supposed to be sunny and in the mid 50s. I can't wait!

Elin, I hope that you had a terrific weekend!

We have an open house for preschool tomorrow evening, so I'll be working extra long hours today and tomorrow. Too bad we don't get paid by the hour. Then Wednesday, I'll probably go to the board of education meeting. The budget cuts are horrendous this year, so it could be a very long meeting with a lot of people who all want their own favorite clubs/teams/activities/classes saved. I am very concerned about Miles' future. It already seems like he is getting so much less than Matthew and Laura, and there is going to be even less in the years to come.

Have a great day, DDA!

Well we switched from Direct TV to ATT U verse. Saves us some money & we also dropped our landline phone. With email, facebook, & our cell phones, there seemed to be no reason to keep the landline.

Ladies, I need the power of your prayers and good thoughts!

My good friend and neighbor's family is going through a really hard time, right now. About 4 years ago, their second oldest son killed himself in their home. The youngest son (12 at the time) found him. It was just awful, but they got through it. Then, 9 months later, their oldest son was killed in a car accident. Again, it was a really rough time, but they got through it.

Last night, we heard sirens in the neighborhood, and saw an ambulance pull up in front of their house. By the time Alan got there, they had all left in the ambulance. We just found out that the youngest son, Adam, had tried to kill himself. His girlfriend broke up with him, so he took handfuls of pills. Then, he texted her to tell her what she'd done. She tried to call him back, but he didn't answer, and the landline to Connie's house was busy. She got her father to drive her to the house, and they broke the news to Connie and John. They ran to his room and found him unresponsive. They called the ambulance, and he was taken to the hospital. He's still in critical condition today. He hasn't regained consciousness, and they don't know what kind of brain damage he may have. I'm really afraid of what this will do to Connie and John, if the worst happens. So, if you've got some spare prayers and good thoughts, please include Connie, John and Adam Romney in your thoughts, and prayers.

Thanks!

Glynis, I will definitely say a prayer for that family. How horrible to lose two children already and then have to go through this. Thank goodness that young girl took him seriously and went over to the house right away! Please let us know what happens.

Thanks, everyone, for your prayers and concern. As of 8:00 last night he was still in Intensive Care. They are keeping him in a medically induced coma, as they try to stabilize him. Every time they've tried to wake him up, he goes into convulsions. It's not looking good.

I was hoping for better news. I will keep praying. It brings me to tears every time I think about it.
