Updates on the Updates

Eye, Eye, Matie : My light-sensitive right eye has steadily improved and checked out perfectly today with my ocular surgeon/opthamologist. I guess I won't have to practice my pirate imitation after all.

The Graduatie: Cindy rose to the challenge and turned in all of her overdue economics homework. She'll get to march on Thursday and will receive her diploma if she continues to keep on track with a project that's due this Wednesday.

Company's Comin' on Wednesday: George's sister and brother-in-law will be visiting from the Seattle area, and my favorite niece Emily and her four-month-old baby, Will, will be flying out from Atlanta. I'm looking forward to visiting with everyone, but I especially can't wait to see and hold my great nephew for the first time.

If you don't hear much from me in the next few days, it's because I'm enjoying time with family.


Paula Johnson said... have another family? Besides your online family? Wow.

Isn't that blogging bigamy? Hmmm.

So glad to hear Cindy is on track to graduate! It would have been such a let down to get this far and not get to walk. Beth took the GED two weeks ago and is waiting to hear the results. She found the tests very easy. I was very unhappy she didn't graduate from high school (with only about 9 hours to go!) but I'm glad she completed the GED at any rate.

Things here are stable and improving. School is almost out for summer. Beth just got a job at Gelson's. She'd love to see you sometime. We're learning a little bit about healthcare without insurance (challenging).

Sorry to hear of your downs, but so happy to hear of your ups. You take carpe diem to heart! It is such a pleasure to read your blog and all the comments from your wonderful friends. Love and best wishes to you!

Three cheers for Beth and Rick.

Great job, Sis. Three cheers for the Carriers! Wait a minute, what project?

Paula's right, when does the blog family get a graduation announcement?

Get ready.......Big Will is awesome.

Love ya! Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way she should go: and when she is old, she will not depart from it.

That's great about Cindy! Well, I guess we won't be hearing about that dermatology appointment after all, darn:) Glad you are managing to keep your appetite too - if you have any more trouble with that, let me know as I am great at tempting people with my homemade Hershey Chocolate pies:)
