all of the people and the places that make our land the land of the free and the brave.....from sea to shining sea....
Hopefully, your Memorial Day weekend has been filled with fun and family and all those things that make a weekend like this special.
Here in Judiland, things are a bit topsy-turvy. Which explains why I am been absent from blogland.
Our almost PhD was home for a few days before he headed to the Finger Lakes to meet up with some frat brothers at a winery for a friend's wedding weekend. And, of course, our sorority girl has been home and we've been busy getting things situated for her summer internship and summer classes. And, of course, with both kids home--the cooking and cleaning and people coming and going was non stop. Then, I had a conference thrown into the mix....which made for a few very interesting and exhausting days. And, on top of that-- -as I may have mentioned, Carmen's mother suddenly took ill a little over a week ago. She was hospitalized and has a series of procedures and surgery. Thankfully, we live about 3 minutes down the road from the hospital where she is being cared for--making it a bit easier to run back and forth at all hours.
Today, we are trying our best to regroup and do all those things that we have neglected over the past 2 weeks. Carmen escaped at some ungodly hour--he is holed up at an undisclosed location trying to catch up with work before he heads to the hospital. I have plans to finally get some of my flowers purchased and in the ground before joining my sisters for our annual Memorial Day gathering. This year, our plans are to float in my sister's pool.
Right now, I can't imagine anything better than floating.....
Happy Memorial Day friends!
