    TGIF! Have been at the hospital since 0615...DH is the first colonoscopy patient of the morning. He should be out anytime now, yay! Only thing I have on my list today is grocery shopping. Will be home bound all weekend since its NASCAR weekend, the last race of the year, and we live 1.8 miles from the track. Traffic will be insane as usual. Hope to do some scrapping and I need to repot a couple of plants.

    Hope everyone has a Happy Friday and a great weekend!

    Good luck to DH today Becky!!!
    Yes, I'd definitely be homebound this weekend... I know when the Indy 500 is in town or even the Brickyard, we avoid that area.. (about a 15 minute drive NE of us)... but we don't mind going the next town over and we can hear the scream of the engines.. and it's nice to see the cars "show cars" that stop off at the area grocery/department stores... Should be an interesting race considering the fight last week... (JG's parents live about a 10 minutes from us, he went and graduated from the rival HS.. )

    Reddy, sorry Richard has the grumpies...
    Cassey, hope the phone calls go smoothly!!!

    I'm getting teary watching the Today show seeing the new American citizens taking their oath.. makes me wonder how DH's great grandparents felt when they took the oath... and especially my Grandma's parents when they became citizens... Something we take for granted I believe...

    Ok Becky, I thought I was the only one who cried when Lee Greenwood sings that song.. I remember hearing it the day my brother told me he was deploying on the air carrier after 9/11... (he was also USN)...

    Haha, oh no Nan! I'm a big sap when it comes to patriotic songs! DH is retired USN, spent his career on aircraft carriers as a Navy Nuke, I served 5 years as a broadcast journalist, my brother 10 years. It does make u think of our ancestors though...mine came thru Ellis from Ireland, Denmark and Sweden. Have u heard the song "Isle of Hope" by the Irish Tenors? Get some tissue first!

    Off to look up that song...

    My Great-Grandparents were both from Ireland and come through Ellis Island.. I'm only the 3rd generation in the US based of Grandma's side..

    hmmm I had kin that came over on the Mayflower
    all of mine been here for along time
    Kin fought at the Alamo - direct line that fought at the battle that won TX their indepenance (my spelling is bad & I can't think how to spell it - really sad)
    I"m thinking the newest person coming over was 15 generations ago

    but I did know a guy in HS that became a citzen in HS - he showed us the test he had to pass - alot harder than what we had to pass for history class

    Cheryl, isn't it the best thing to have the kids home!!!! I love hearing about things going on at school....but to see my kids all together laughing, fighting, playing games, and even the hugs is amazing...

    Today is supposedly "national kiss a soccer player" day.... so I immediately nailed my 2 soccer players here at home...and sent a kissing face to DD at school... she started in on her brothers this morning.. sending various photos of kissy lips....
