This week has been pretty hectic...and its only Wednesday. Mom's surgery went well this morning. (Gall Bladder) Papaw is okay... I spent most of the day with him. He's a little confused, mostly because he's in a new place. He was the same way when he first went to Silverleaf. We all think (and hope) that he'll feel better once he settles in. I will tell you this though... I've learned a few things today... One is that I have gained a new respect for my Mom. What she has to take care of and deal with day in and day out. I can't imagine the emotional roller coaster going through her head on a daily basis. I realize today how much she does. How much I depend on her. How much Papaw depends on her. Wow. That's all I can say. There's not enough Mother's Days, Birthdays, Christmas', Thanksgivings, or anything else to say how much her sacrifice is appreciated. I truly don't know what I would do without her.

Phoebe's cute little hat

Hudson's has had these little hat and cat toys there for a long time. Today they were 80% off. It costs 94 cents... She absolutely hated it! But it was really cute... while it lasted!

And there it goes... I put it back on her and she jumped down and pulled it off.


Literally! It never stopped! We had a river in the back yard!
We put this trash can under the water runoff from the house... It filled up in 5 minutes.

This week has been pretty easy... Ran 7 miles on Tuesday and went to the eye doc. Yesterday I went to the Ran 6 3/4 miles today. Been facebooking a lot lately... yeah, yeah... I know.

Papaw went back into the Hospital today. Mom says he's dehydrated and really weak. Please pray for him. I'm staying with him tonight.

Held out as long as I could...

Okay, so the other day I was thinking about how bad of a friend I am. I never call anybody. I never hang out with anyone. I'm completely anti-social. This became reiterated when my Mother told me the other day that she was talking to one of my brother's high school friends on facebook. It's not that I don't want to be social, it's just the way I am.
So, here we go. In order to counteract my anti-socialism(is that a word?), I am going to give in to conformity and yes, create a facebook page. Just a facebook, not a myspace....

Go ahead, say it.

Never thought I'd say this....

The new Star Trek movie was really really good! I took Mom to lunch and a movie. Excellent movie. Mom loved it! There were several cameos in the movie. Leonard Nemoy for one. There were several other folks I recognized from Alias... Rachel from the last two seasons (she was a green uh.. species?)... Carrie, Marshall's wife as well...

I just saw a promo for Army Wives' new season... Starts June 7.

Went running this morning...

I did 7 miles. It was HOT!!! My knee hurts too.... Don't know what that's about. I haven't ran since Monday because it's been sooo darn hot and humid!

Pretty uneventful week. Boredom at work. Wes finished his semester this week. (All A's might I add!) Summer term start May 26th. Today we went to the co-op and got a waterlily for the fish tank. We've been wanting something to put in there for a while. No where around here sells water lilies much. If it works out, we might get another one, slowly replacing all the ugly fake plants. Later Ken & Deb brought Papaw by the house for a quick visit. His breathing is terrible. Please pray for him.

Surprising Mom tomorrow.... Can't tell yet.

Today we've been watching Ace of Cakes... Tonight's new episode is when they go to Hawaii and make LOST's 100th episode cake.... Next week is the season finale.

Lost Season 5!!

JUST PRE-ORDERED LOST SEASON 5!! (The finale hasn't even aired yet!!) IT'S DUE OUT ON DECEMBER 8TH... :)

My Right Arm is dead!

I am sore! I weed-eated the yard today. It was HOT! I stirred up a lot of ants... (Wes is going to ridicule me for this because he's been helping his Dad in their yard all day).

I did run yesterday, but as usual, electronics are stupid, so my iPod decided to be stupid yesterday. It wouldn't load my miles and I ended up having to restore it (for the third time!). So my counter is now off my 12 miles (I did 4.5 yesterday + the last two times iPod got stupid=approx. 12 mi)
