This and that...

It has been pretty mellow around here for the past few days.

Grant is doing a lot better at night, but I am still staying up until all hours doing stuff (now I have no one to blame but myself!)

Today is Grandparents Day at school and my in laws are coming up to go to that. Should be fun for all involved.

I am going out with the girls tonight and looking forward to catching up with Stephanie and Monica.

Mema has started chemo and we are all praying that this will wipe out the cancer. I just keep thinking this is all a major bump in the road and she is going to be better before we know it. Some people might call it denial, but I know that it can happen because I have heard the stories. The kids and I are going out to visit in a couple of weeks and I will have the extra added bonus of meeting my new niece when I am there!

Nikki has been talking about getting a reunion planned for our 8th grade class for about 15 years now and we have started trying to locate people. I have reconnected with a bunch of people on Facebook and it has been so much fun! It has been long enough that all of the junk that goes with the growing up years has gone away and we can all just be happy to reconnect. My mom always told me that reunions after 5 or 10 or even 15 years are not really all that great - everyone is still trying to impress each other. But she said that after that life has happened (divorce, rebellious kids, lost jobs) and everyone is just happy to still be around and be able to get together. I guess the 21 years that have passed have been enough to let all the baggage melt away!

I love love love Facebook! If you get a chance, email me and I'll try and link up with you.

Hope you're having a great weekend. Praying for Mema.

Isn't Facebook awesome? I have reconnected with people I haven't talked to in 18 years in some cases!

I will keep your Mema in my prayers.

Mellow can definitely be a blessing sometimes, can't it?

I don't know if it's denial or not, sweetie. But I do know that thinking positive is a good thing! You're all in my thoughts.
