327– A Friday Night First

I had a little virus scare yesterday… so, of course, I called Kale to get reassurance that I had handled it right.  He got onto me (a little) for using IE… so this picture of Google Chrome is for you, Kale David. Better?

I just noticed that I took that photo at 10:50 AM and it was only 37 degrees here at that time.  We’ve lost our Spring weather!!

I took Izzy this afternoon and ran some errands for Ms. Charlsie.  Bless her heart, I took her to the doctor yesterday … her appointment was scheduled for 4:45 PM, the nurse called us to the back a little after 6:00 PM, the doctor came in just before 7:00 PM, and we FINALLY left the office at 8:20 PM.  She and I were both worn out.  Who knew a doctor in this day and time would keep those hours??  He is working with her meds to try to keep her B/P down.  I hope it helps soon.  She’s had a rough week or so.

After I got home, Daisy and Maddie came over.  Tyler and Daisy went on a date and Maddie stayed with us.  Dave was late getting home… so we did a first for us… we ordered Chili’s to Go.  I know for some of you that’s not all that unusual, but we live about 20 minutes from town so we don’t normally order carry out – unless it’s pizza.  It was SO much less of a hassle than taking a tired 3-year old out at 7:30 PM, but the food is MUCH better when it’s fresh in the restaurant.

I have had a hankerin’ for this for several weeks now.  Love their Santa Fe Wrap!

When I was reading “Pinkalicious – School Rules” to Mads tonight, the book said that Pinkalicious missed her unicorn while she was at school and it made her sad.  Maddie (who is so compassionate) asked me why she was sad and I told her that she was missing her unicorn.  She replies “why?”  and I said, “it’s like when I miss Izzy” and she says real quick, “NO! You miss Kale!!” Oh, yes I do!  (She remembers me sitting in the car crying after Kale left a couple of weeks ago.)

Speaking of the Ks, I’m trying to decide on plans for my next trip.  I’m hoping they’ll be able to come in for the 4th of July, so I’m trying to decide if I want to make a trip between now and then or after the 4th.  Maybe in the Fall? I’m planning on it just being me, by myself, and spending several days just relaxing and hanging out with the kids.  I’m thinking the weather in Houston will be better in May than, say, September???

I am so sorry you guys had to wait at the doctor's office. I had to wait over 2 hours for my appointment. I wasn't happy either. Maddie is so sweet and intuitive. Hope you get to go on your trip in May.

Our weather has turned cold again :( I'm hoping all of these little winters (redbud, dogwood, etc) pass very quickly!

The things little ones say - so sweet! After we left my sister last Saturday I was sobbing till we got halfway through Missouri.

If I were you I'd go to TX in May :) No time like the present! That sounds nice to get away and enjoy time with them alone..

I use Google Chrome but my screen doesn't look that cute. :( And why does he say that anyway? blessings, marlene

I live just a little south of Houston. I definitely recommend May weather over September. It's hot in May - but it's hotter in September. Plus...hurricanes. I'd hate to have your trip cancelled due to a hurricane in the Gulf!
