Hi there!

I rarely get over here. I'm so busy with FaceBook and running around trying to see my friends and hug them close.

Central PA will probably not get another flake of snow this season. My snowblower had a flat and the tire had come off the rim. Anyway, my son came up and fixed it. So now that I have 3 shovels, ice pick, salt, a 5.5 hp duel stage snowblower and a full tank of gas AND the groundhog didn't see his shadow, spring is on the way. Woo.

I am going to do the 5K next year. I'm also going to train for the 1/2. The 37 year old mother of three that I walked in honor of this year has died. She lasted until we made it home from Disney. Deb Wills (allears.net) gave her a medal like the rest of the team received. Her husband put it on her casket. The service is tomorrow. Did I mention she's the same age as my daughter?

Another friend had the police come to her house this morning to inform her that her sister had died. She had a cold, and went to the doctor. He told her to go home and get some rest. She never woke up. And so it goes.

On a MUCH brighter note, my Dad turned 95 on Sunday. Woo

I'm also going to Disney in December over Christmas again. December 25th thru 31st. But now I've decided I'm sending the family home and I'm going to stay until after the marathon. Yay!!!

So I will probably see Tammi, but I will miss Vicki. But then Vicki will be down again in January!! I'm psyched!

Off to bed. I have to go into work early and rehook up the computers before I go to the service. My office now has new carpet!!

Hello, all! Not too much happening around here. The bathroom is progressing but nothing exciting yet. The electrician was here all day yesterday. Today they put insulation back in the ceiling (very nice to have in this weather) and laid subflooring. He is picking our tub up on his way home and will have it with him Monday morning. I picked up the vanity yesterday, and it's in my living room. The tub surround and vanity top with sink are here, too. I can't wait until the bathroom starts to look like a bathroom again!

Yes, I will be there for the 5k, the half and the full in January. I plan on running the full but want to run the 5k and watch the half. I'll cheer you on for the 1/2!!!!

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. So sad.

Good morning, DDA!

Nothing really different to report... on and off the vent on a set schedule. Physical Therapy, Occupation Therapy, Respiratory Therapy. Waiting to hear from the insurance company (we are Blue Cross/Blue Shield Texas and their offices have been closed for some "strange" reason.... )

Hope you all are okay dealing with all that winter weather!

A very quick update for this morning. I spent the entire day with Bob yesterday! He was on the vent all day, after having been on and off the day before (a planned schedule) and he was much stronger and able to talk through his trach a bit. We read and watched some TV and he was generally in better spirits than he has been for a few days. We are going to watch at least part of the Super Bowl together tonight, but I will be with him for a few hours this morning and afternoon first.

We are still waiting on insurance approval for the move to the hospital in Richmond. Then we will begin the next step in his recovery. Keep thinking of us. The good thoughts and prayers are much appreciated.

Good Morning,

Not much of a football fan here, but Richie is thrilled that the Steelers are in it. I had to laugh at the guy in the grocery store yesterday with the cheese head on.

Chris is looking forward to the superbowl though I have no idea which team he will be cheering for as his teams didn't make it. I need to put together some game foods. I'll probably try to watch the commercials

I've been spending most of my time researching our hawaii cruise. I want to make sure that we have a plan in place to do all the things that each of us really want to do. Which Islands to rent cars vs book excursions etc. Chris, Nick, Hunter and I all want to go scuba diving at least once. Colby has no interest which is good since he won't be quite old enough. We plan to do lots of snorkeling so that will be enough for Colby. There are lots of places to snorkel off the beaches which will give Colby a sense of security. He did not like snorkeling off a boat in Cozumel. We want to see Volcanoes National Park and black sand beaches. A luau is a must. I'm glad I've got 17 months to plan as it will probably take me that long

Deb,
We did Germaines luau, it was great but I'm definitely not a fan of Hawaiian food.

I'm not at all adventureous with food so Luau's scare me as far as that goes, but I think the show is a must do in hawaii.

It sounds like you definitely have your work cut out for you. I'm working on our December Disney trip and trying to decide what the final decision is going to be for our 30th anniversary trip.

I would agree. A luau would be a must. I didn't used to be adventurous with my food but as I've gotten older and wiser, I've found that it is fun to try new stuff. I try to always take a no thank you bite. I eat the one bite and if I don't like it, I say no thank you to any more. I have found a lot more wonderful foods that way as well as lots of yucky stuff!

I had an interesting night last night. When I crawled into bed at 11pm, I heard this strange dripping noise so I went looking for it. Didn't take me long. I have a leak in my ceiling. Luckily, it only ruined some magazines. Earlier in the day, I had my new flat screen TV setting under neath it. Thank goodness, I didn't like where it was so moved it earlier in the day. I moved most everything out of my bedroom in case it got worse. There is a foot long circle of the ceiling that is dropping about 4-6 inches.

I called maintenance who came to look at it and he couldn't do anything about it this week-end. The guy speaks in broken english. I had a plastic garbage can under it collecting the water. It was 1/2 filled up twice by 4pm today. At some point after 4pm, it stopped. I'm hoping to be able to sleep in there tonight. I slept on the couch last night and that isn't very comfortable for more than 1 night.

It will be interesting to hear what they find tomorrow. They are supposed to send someone to look at it in the daylight.

I have been feeling yucky since Thursday. Came home early thursday, stayed hom sick on Friday (Hunter too). Yesterday I felt better, then yucky again today. Nothing really specific, bit of a cold, fever than comes and goes with headache and dizziness. Hoping to feel better tomorrow. I did help Hunter get his costume together for his God presentation this week. He was assigned Apollo, the God of Archery, Poetry, and music among other things. We did the toga, quiver, bow and Liar. I think it came out pretty Godlike



Tonight I helped Colby do his 100th day of school project for Friday. We used 100 legos to make a 100. He's happy He also got his Valentine's made out.

That does not sound like a quick or easy fix. I hope they can do something quickly.

I went to grab something under the kitchen sink tonigt to find that cupboard wet. Turns out the drain we fixed a month or so ago is leaking again. Chris took it apart again and and put some more plumbers putty around the drain. Not sure why the first fix didn't work Now the wood needs to dry out so we can put things back.
