Shower

Brandon’s family threw Laura and him a Bridal Shower today. It wasn’t a surprise and there were no games, but it was nice and she got TONS of great gifts. She doesn’t know when her shower that I am throwing is, I am so excited. I got her some great gifts and have awesome stuff planned. I hope she enjoys it! The turn out is good, I have received about 20 yeses! I will post the beautiful invitation I created as soon as the shower is over. I know she is nosey, and she reads my site so I can’t post it until afterwards!

Sunday

It is Sunday….Sunday’s make me sad. It is because tomorrow is Monday and 5 long days until I get another weekend. I love weekends. I can’t wait until next weekend. It will be my sister’s 1st Shower hosted by her soon to be Mother-in-Law and Aunt. I am supposed to be getting a shower right now, but I am fooling around on line.

I went to visit my Uncle yesterday and it was horrible. He looked more sick then anyone I have ever seen in real life. He looked worse then my Mom the day she died. I found out what he has. It’s Wegener’s Granulomatosis. Here is the LINK to what it is. Pretty Scary. I think one day this week I am going to take dinner over to my cousins. They are 14 and 17 and have been spending a lot of time home alone while my Aunt s at the hospital.

Today we are going out to Dinner to celebrate Pete’s Mom’s Birthday. She will be 60 on Tuesday. She is a great lady, I am glad his parents came to town to see us this weekend. We will miss them when they move to Arizona in about two months.

Oh one more quick note…..You know you have a great boy when he will buy you Tampons while at Walmart with his Dad!

Death

Well no new car yet. We had a family emergency. My great Aunt who was an active healthy 77 year old, living on her own, driving, shopping, etc. Had a stroke yesterday afternoon and died last night. She was fine on Thursday, she went shopping, got her hair and her nails done and on Friday dropped dead. It is scary. My Dad was at the hospital to be there to support my Grandfather. It is his sister. I am really kinda sad. I mean I wasn’t extremely close to her, but I seen her a few times a year and she was a great person.

Tonight I am going to visit my uncle, my dad’s sister’s husband. He is in intensive care with some rare illness. I will find out the scoop on it tonight, because I am not sure what all it entails. He has just been given a feeding tube and hooked up to a breathing machine. I know my Dad wants to go see him because the passing of my aunt was so sudden. I am going with him, although I hate hospitals. They remind me of my mom being sick. My Uncle is in his 40’s with two teenage daughters.

I am really sad this weekend. I can’t show it though. Pete’s parents are here and they are so wonderful to us. I want to show them a good time and not be mopey. I just got done cooking dinner,( Chicken and Dumplins) and now I am getting ready to run to the hospital. Car shopping has been postponed until tomorrow, or Monday. I hope Monday!
