Just A List

I've just got a list today....

1-I am so thankful that Tropical Storm Ida is coming through right now instead of this weekend. It has been POURING rain all day and is expected to continue until tomorrow. Thank goodness it will all be gone by Saturday!


2-Lots of family is starting to come in tomorrow. Two of Steve's sisters will be getting here and Laura and Lindy will be coming home too! We are picking up Steve's sister at the airport and going out to lunch and then tomorrow night we are all getting together for dinner.

I think I told you recently about my friend who had cancer? He passed away Sunday afternoon. So Steve and I will be going to his funeral tomorrow, too. I am so sad for his wife and his three children. They are all teenagers and that is such a hard time to lose your dad. His boys play football and his daughter was on Homecoming Court about three weeks ago. He was able to summon the energy that night to escort her to that special event. But things went quickly downhill after that. I know she will always cherish that special moment that she was able to have with him before he passed away.

So...tomorrow will be a sad and happy day.

3-Ashley got her iPod out tonight and played some of the songs she has lined up for her reception. She and Steve danced to My Girl. That is going to be their father/daughter dance. They are cute together!

4-Did you know that today is the 40th birthday of Sesame Street??


I remember watching that when I was a little girl and my kids grew up watching it, too. I love that show and think it has done so much to teach children through the years!! Happy Birthday Sesame Street! :)
