    Bethany -- Your comment made me laugh as well. :laughing: I hope you don't have students trying to climb into the zoo animal homes again.

    Aimee -- I'm sorry about your dad. I hope he finds another job quickly.

    Ellen -- Welcome Joselyn! Good thoughts and prayers for her and Katie.

    Lauren -- Good luck to Andrew tonight! If Andrew's league is like Liam's, one run in two innings is not bad at all! In fact, would he like to come pitch for Liam's team?? :laughing: We had a game called after the fourth inning the other day due to a real pitcher's duel...14-10. Liam said it was more like a football score. :laughing:

    I think we might be having Indian food for dinner tonight. Greg wants to have it before he leaves, and it is easier to go get it tonight than tomorrow after skating.

    Ellen~ Everyone is in my prayers. Welcome new baby Jocelyn:cloud9:

    Lauren so glad no biopsy this year. The meet is June 14th. So far Marisa, Nan, Bethany & I. Place undetermined but there will be food involved.

    We are buying 1/2 a bison......will go pick it up butchered & packaged after our cruise. I didn't think I would ever like it but always taste Greg's at AP & really enjoyed it.
    The only thing I'm not sure of is telling them how much we want the steaks to weigh...any ideas?

    Good afternoon everyone

    Thanks so much for the prayers for Katie and baby Jocelyn. They aren't out of the woods yet but things are looking up. THANKS SO MUCH!!!!

    Becky - Happy Belated Anniversary. I love the Caribbean. Hopefully next year we will be going back.

    Kathy - I hope you are feeling better today. Did you decide on a cake yet?

    Charlene - I don't think I properly said Welcome yet!! Thais a great group of women.

    Lauren - Yea for no biopsy. Prayers continue for your Mom

    Lindsay - Love the pictures you posted. What a great looking family. And I loved your table setting. Made me hungry

    Vickie - I hope each day finds you feeling better. I love the way you type. I can just hear the British accent. Love it!!!

    Nancy & Narissa - A great big pat on the back. You have to show it for her to have it. What a great job you all have done. Kady is one lucky girl.

    Laura - I am so happy knowing the Greg is home for a bit. Congratulations on Airborn school and then a whole month. Congrats also to Liam on his pitching. That is just wonderful.

    Maria - I am sorry - but . . you BIL is a class A jerk. I have absoutly NO use for people who get their jollies by putting other people down. Shame on him. I am so excited for the babies arrival. You will make the bestest Mom. Hey, are you getting excited about your cruise. Just over 2 weeks now.

    Sheryl - What a nice surprise. The CG is my favorite place to eat on Disney property. We have taken Ethan (4) a few times. She will be just fine. ENJOY!

    Lori - You are too young to be a MIL (Ok who is messing with the smilies - I can't find my Youzza one). SIL's are great and I am sure yoou will be a great MIL. Good for you.

    Bethany - I hope you have better luck this time with your papers getting to NOLA. Field trip HE** - you make me laugh. Only 19 more days sweetie. Hang in there.

    Janice -Reception/Gratuation - whatever. I do agree it is to bad that this might be the only affair these kids do have. They are going to HS and that is a great thing. Congratulations to Alex

    Ann - Are you just having a ball having Ron home at night? My prayers are with you that these last few weeks aren't just terriby miserable. I remember all too well. Baby Emma will be here before you know it.

    Aimee - Oh how I can relate!! We need to get rid of one of our pastors. My days would be soooooo much better!! When I took this job I thought, how cool it would be to work for my church. Well after 10 years - I still love my job - I REALLY do, but . . . it is SO hard to have 679 bosses. I am the only secretary to 3 pastors. I love my job, I love my job. :lmao:

    Gretchen - My prayers are with your Dad.

    Whew, I hope I got everyone. Guess what I did last night? I cleaned Matthew's room. OMG :scared1::scared::eek: what an ordeal that was. I couldn't bring myself to go up to his room when he was gone. I missed him so much. So I just closed the door so I didn't have to see it. When he would come home on the weekends I didn't have the heart to ask him to clean, so it never got done. YIKES!! Last night was the night. It looks so pretty and smells good too. I went up this morning after he went to work just to look at it again and he had even made his bed this morning.

    Ok I have rambled enough. With me its either feast or famine.:rotfl2:

    WFDT ~ Lamb Chops, grilled aspergaus and sweet potatoes.

    Have a great day my friends and thanks again for the prayers for my little family.

    Congrats to the family! Premature babies make remarkable progress thanks to modern medicine. I hope momma recovers okay :hug:

    I would have been :mad: at that bus driver.

    She is so cute!!

    Oh yes, everyone who is a member considers you to be their employee - they pay your salary, remember ;) Gotta love it!

    I am not that bad of an influence!!!! :rotfl2: It was just a blanket "be careful out there"- drive safe, take it easy, remember the sunscreen, don't spend too much, take the pepto in case, come back in same shape you left....you know, that kind of "be careful"!!

    Thanks for all of the well wishes for the kiddos. I'm going to "try" to hook the laptop up to the dsl modem and see if I can get it to work, since that's where I put the photos. We'll see how that goes.

    Prayers for new Mom, and the little bundle of joy, and dad and his job, and A and his game.

    I just joined Facebook and have realized that it is very very addicting.....:laughing:

    And tonight is either grilled salmon or fresh Iowa steaks with grilled asparagus, salad, and couscous.


    Why is it when I try to go back on a eating plan all I want is vanilla wafers and chocolate?!?:headache:

    Maria I am soo sorry that you and your husband had to be witness to that horrible behavior. I am sure if I was there I would not be invited back for any family functions ;) I remember when my Aunt and Uncle adopted my cousin we all were thrilled. One of my Grandmother's friends said to her wouldn't she have wished for one of her own grandchildren. Her reply was that she didn't understand since he was one of her own grandchildren;).

    I lost my train of thoughts. I got so mad I can't remember what I was going to say. I'll be back once my head clears.

    And Kim (Nick's mom) and I both decided neither of us was old enough to be a Grandma yet, so when it happens (the "plan" is 2 years) one of us is a MiMi and one is a Mamere........bet the NOLA girls can pick whose who!:rotfl2:

    What a moron! :mad:

    Glad things are looking up with the adoption. It will be here before you know it! :hug:


    Congrats to them on the new baby. :yay:


    Yummy and like others have said, cute assistant.


    I am soooooo tired. Having one of my "can't fall asleep" cycles. Hopefully I can get some tonight. Last night I ended up eating a few chicken strips because I had so much to do and not enough time to really cook.

    There is so much to do here at work as we wind down the school year and I am in the process of working on three quilts. I have one that needs to be finished by tomorrow night, one that needs to be finished before I head to WDW, it's my DN's birthday gift, and another that I need to have done not too long afterward. Tonight I have to iron the backing fabric for the first one. I ended up getting some really wrinkley fabric at the fabric store last night, the un-wrinkled one was 1/4 of a yard too small! :headache:

    I may just throw some of the seafood mix into a pan with capers, lemon juice, wine, garlic and dill, cook till done and have over some pasta. :cloud9:

    Caribbean Style Conch Chowder w/sherry

    Grilled Shrimp and Seared Scallops over pasta with fresh creamy tomato sauce
    [​IMG]

    Captain Swann's Red Snapper- marinated with garlic and tomatoes, covered with black and green olives on top of wild rice surrounded by a light herb sauce
    [​IMG]

    Pirate's of the Caribbean's Sweet Temptations- white chocolate cheesecake, triple layer chocolate cake, and a rum barbossa

    (the chocolate cake was nasty- if you pressed a fork down on it water squeezed out onto the plate!):scared1:


    Overall the food was pretty good on the cruise... I'd skip desserts though. Our favorite, other than Palo, was Triton's, which unfortunately I don't have photos of. It was our last night and we were packing right up to dinner and ran out of the cabin without the camera...

    I hope that your GrandDad makes a good adjustment. Perhaps all of the company will do him good.

    Prayers fro your Dad, I cannot imagine starting over again :hug:

    I loved that banana! Gotta tell you your assistant is a cutie!

    When are you going, I did not see a ticker?

    Lauren- cheering Andrew on! I am so glad you don't need a biopsy!

    Maria- Okay, I am embarrassed! It never occurred to me that anyone would ridicule a child or parents waiting for their adoption so I never saw the nasty intent. I am so sorry:sad2:
