Glynis-prayers for the Romney family. So tragic!


Deb-I finally remember to ask Mary K where she parked and she said it was a Thrifty car rental. I think it might be cheaper to park at a Logan Express bus station-there is one in Braintree that is right off the highway (I don't know where the others to say if any of those are easier for you to get to) but then you would have to pay to take the bus to Logan. $12 for 4 of you and maybe free for Colby??? If one adult dropped you off at the airport first it would take a lot longer plus you'd have to pay the toll-I can't remember how much it is but I think it is only about $5. Hope you can find something reasonable.

Elin-hope you had a great weekend.

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!
My household is praying.

We actually booked a hotel with free 14 day parking and free shuttle. We have to pay $10/night for the additional nights, but it will still be cheaper than long term parking on or offsite. Since our flight leaves Boston at 7 AM it will let us drive over the evening before and we will still get some sleep. If we did a parking lot we would need to leave here around by 2 AM at the latest. It seems like the best solution all around. Thanks for looking into it for us.

Good morning, DDA! It's colder here, and they are predicting snow for tonight. For right now, though, they sun is shining. And my kids are coming home this evening for an entire week! I can't wait to see them again.

Glynis, your neighbors are still in my prayers.

Good morning, DDA!

Yesterday it was warm enough to swim, if you were so inclined! Bet, like Beth, colder temps are coming.

Enjoy Spring Break with your kids, Beth!!

Hello! Just trying to keep my head above water here this week. It's one of those "Something every night" kind of weeks. Guess that's what I get for taking a relaxing weekend. LOL.

The girls and I went to the condos about an hour from here that are part of my parents' time share. We can get free "bonus time" with short notice so we went down to just enjoy a quiet weekend together after the craziness of the last month. It was nice just hanging out, playing games, playing some mini golf and taking part in a scavenger hunt. Mostly it was just a big bunch of nothingness. I took papers with me to work through, but never even took them out of the bag. On the way home we stopped at Mastodon State Park and learned a few things I never knew about the area.

Now we're pretty much gearing up for the end of the school year and day camp the first of June. I've got a big (-ish, hopefully) event to get planned for early May, several other things going on between now and then, plus Terra's softball coach is a little gung-ho and has multiple practice type things scheduled each week. Ahh the things that pop up now that spring is here (well, close to hear - can't really argue with 80s this week).

That's exciting!!!




I've been home sick for two days. Coughing up blood. Doc says that I ruptured a vessel in my nasal cavity or chest from this cold that I have. Oveerall I just feel yucky. I see that there is another position that I can apply for, but at this point I'm considering waiting for fall to apply. I've really had it with all the "sure" things not to mention the stress of the job and people I work with. I'll talk to Chris about it and see what he thinks.

Feel better, Deb. And I hope you and Chris can come to a decision that works for all of you.
