Hey Pepe, I haven't been able to post on your thread in quite a while now, but we may actually have a nice weekend in Rhode Island if Rick is up to it. He was in the hospital for a few days this week for another blockage issue, but he had a pretty good day today. So, If there's no problems, we'll spend the entire weekend at the ocean.

You know, I just now thought of another post that I had read that said "You know you're a caregiver when...". I'll complete the sentence with "when you check the driving distance from the hotel to a hospital!". Yes....I really did that. ;-)

I hope that your headache is better soon - and enjoy the beach!! :-)

Have a nice restful weekend everyone!

Cynthia

I was going to spend the weekend resting up here at home, but now I'm thinking I might need to go to the ER tonight. I'm on a Z-pack for the infection in my lungs, but coughing a lot more today than yesterday and my temp is spiking up on me. If they admit me, I'll have my laptop so will be able to update.

Looking forward to toasting Jennie on Sunday!

Went to the ER last night and it's pneumonia. The doc asked where I'd be more comfortable ("I dunno, doc, that iron maiden looks cozy") so I opted to come home to recoup.

Is that the Verdi opera or the musical based off of it?

We have a summer Opera company - the Glimmerglass Festival - which is quite high end; 4 productions each summer (about 40 performances - 10 of each.) This year, I got to two of them: Lost in the Stars (Kurt Weill) and Aida (Verdi). Both were wonderful, with top opera stars.

And then I rounded out my weekend with kayaking, sailing and swimming.

The lazy days of summer....

Hi,
Well, we just dropped our daughter off at the airport for her first year of college. That is our big weekend news. My heart goes with her. She is a love. I am so very, very grateful that Dick has been here with me through her graduation and now sending her off.
I think I need some ocean time to heal my heart a bit.

Aloha,
Kathleen

Rain and wind here so trips to the beach will be in raincoats and wellies for us.

Will try to get out for a cycle with the kids (thinking of the things that one legged life will rule out for a time) and get some garden time in between showers.

Still in post-Olympic blues here and the country feels a bit lost as to what to do with itself! Bring on the paralympics- start next week.

...sounds like a nice place to relax. We will be heading north to the mountains to look over the beautiful scenery. It's always refreshing to go back to the place I call my home away from home.

Thinking of all my csn friends and sending peaceful thoughts your way. Hope you all can have a relaxing weekend.

See Doc's thread Tribute for Jennie. Near the end, Marie has provided times, etc.

No booze for me, but a soda will suffice.

Luv,

We are going to stock our RV since we are going camping for Labor Day. Most of everything is in there clothes, spices, toiletries, shoes, etc., the only thing we need to bring is food, even got a washer/dryer if I'm feeling like being domesticated :) This weekend we have a church picnic (not our main church but a secondary) so were kind of crashing it LOL. Also going to see a movie. Hope you enjoy the beech and hoping that you feel better soon.

Hugs! Kim

No specific plans this weekend, hoping to sleep in a bit in the morning...we will see how that goes..you would think with no kids at home anymore one could sleep in but...with a husband who rises by 5 am every morning and doesn't like burning "daylight"...8 am is late to him! :)

Hope your headache feels better very soon! and everyone has a fantastic weekend.

I wonder how many men's ears will be ringing?
:-)
Always good to spend time with friends...

I hope to start to "clean house" as they say.
After the prior weekend and all that lead up to it, this will be relaxing.

Wait! Is that the phone???

Turned 46 Saturday, did the rivet cruise.
Met some amazing doctors. The conference is more than I imagined.
Flying home in 12 hours.
It's a beautiful city with some warm and friendly people.
Hugs,
Pete
Ps so I paid for everything on the MasterCard, expecting no freebies. When I arrive one of the staff says the ceo Andy, has allowed me to attend the conference for free. Just the best birthday present, such a nice surprise.

Yesterday Bill and I went to the farmers' market in the morning and then did a little bit of shopping. I got a new dress! In the afternoon I went to a yard sale and an open house for a friend's business. Last night Bill and I joined friends for dinner and a movie. Today, we went to church!

I'm resting the rest of the day!! Just piddling around the house.

*hugs*
