1 – 10 Sep: Same ole routine—work, sleep, and eat! Lucy even looks a little bored……
I did manage to finish Carla’s surprise which wasn’t really a surprise cause she read this blog…..here are a few pictures of the finished scrapbook.
I really didn’t want to give it to her after I finished it….I wanted to keep it for myself!
11 Sep, Saturday: My Mom’s birthday (and mine)! We decided to all meet in Lebanon and Dowd’s Catfish Restaurant to celebrate our birthdays. Food was excellent and we sure enjoyed seeing everyone. Here are a few pictures of the group…..
Carla and one of her stepson’s, Dominique…..I’m thinking he didn’t want his picture taken!
My niece, Brandi, deciding what to order.
One end of the table…..
The other end……
My mom and her husband, Jim……I think my Mom was enjoying herself!
I’m not so sure Nolan was though….he kind of looks like he might go to sleep.
No pictures of my beautiful great nieces because they were taking most of the pictures…..sorry girls! We had a great birthday!
13 Sep, Monday: Nolan had a follow-up appointment to see if the thing they put in his heart was doing what it was supposed to do. Appointment was at 9:30 so we were up early to make the 2 hour drive to Springfield. He didn’t get to see the doctor just had a test done to see if blood was still getting through from one side of his heart to the other…..the tech that did the test said it was leaking….so I guess we’ll wait and see what the doctor says…..He feels fine but he did before he had the stroke also. Who know about these doctors! It’s hard to find one you think is doing a good job….it was a little disappointing to not get to see the doctor. They said they would send a letter telling him if he needed to do anything else.
15 Sep, Wednesday: Went out to eat with some TOPS friends and had a great time catching up so we decided we would get together every week until Nolan and I left in October. Should be fun!!!
18 Sep, Saturday: Worked but this was the day for the annual Roby Fire Department Fair. Lots of activity around the small town. My niece, Brandi; my nephew, Kelley; and their Dad, Kevin sang for the crowd that night…..they are really good (I’m don’t have a bias opinion or anything). However, I didn’t go because I was so tired. Here’s a picture of them from my other nephew’s, Jeremy, wife, Corey….thanks Corey for sharing.
