My husband called....?

I was thrilled my husband called in ahead for me at this little shop in Petaluma ...

If you find her, please send her home!

Had a great Mothers day luncheon with mom and the family over in West Seattle on the water. Elliot gave me the best gift ever...he drove two hours over and picked up the daughter from school and then Sunday drove her back. Thank you Elliot -- all in all, that is eight hours of driving I didn't have to do.

Right after mothers day I packed up all my summer clothes and headed over to Santa Rosa for eight days with Penny. The two of us had so much fun, although I think I wore her out! As I told Penny over and over again, she lives in Paradise! I loved her church and was very blessed to meet some new brothers and sisters there as well. A couple of Penny's friends joined us for a day in Petaluma and a good time was had by all.

Dad treated Penny, Linda and myself to a wonderful dinner at the CIA in St Helena. (I think that is where we were?)

I was having so much fun that I even tried to change my departure date, but it was to expensive to change, another week sure would have been fun -- Oh well, another trip is in the rest up Penny!

For those of you who have been emailing me, I am fine. Just been really busy trying to catch up around here is all. The daughter came home for a four day week end and Tuesday we found out she once again has to go in for another knee surgery...ugh.

This is the third time they have had to go in and work on her knee. Anyone up for coffee at 4 am?

I missed you too and started to email you the other day but my computer was taking forever and then I forgot(I am over 40 now!) Glad you are home, had a good trip and enjoyed the weekend with your children. Next time you're down, Karen and I will definitely try to make it to see you. We're off to Arizona for my nephew's wedding. It's gonna be HOT!!

Hey! Glad to see you post.....sounds like you've been having lots of fun though so that's great. Sorry daughter needs another knee surgery...those sports just hurt them! Jacquelyn has had 3 surgeries on one ankle and one on the other. Still needs more but she was just laid off of her job so she no longer has health insurance. good to hear form you....have a great weekend!

Christine!! I'm so happy to see you. It sounds like you have been busy having fun. So sorry to hear about your daughter's knee. I hope she feels better soon!

Thanks for stopping by...we are moving to New Jersey and will be living about an hour outside of Manhattan. We lived there before, about 15 years's a tough move but I know things will be good once we settle in.

Hope your daughter's surgery goes well!
