Oh, how I'm glad that it's Friday. It's been a rough week to say the least. My parents have been gone on their cruise since last Sunday, and they are coming home in 2 days. I've been going absolutely bat shit crazy not being able to talk to my mom. Since the cruise was to the Caribbean, the cell phone charges would have been INSANE, so I've not been able to call or text her the whole time. I'm not used to going this long without talking to my mom. Even when we lived in IL, I talked to her at least 2 to 3 times a week. It's been 6 days, and I'm going NUTS.
We also found out this week that a very, very dear friend of ours' mother has lung cancer, which is the same thing that hubby's mom died from. :( So, it's very hard being 17 hours away, and not being able to be there for her other than on the phone. D is an avid supporter of the American Cancer Society, through Relay for Life though, so she has some connections that are giving them some extra support and advice in all of this. I can only pray that they've caught it in an early enough stage that she will have some success with chemo/radiation/surgery/however they approach treating it. I don't know D's mom very well, but D and I have been friends since Jr. High, and she and Joe have been friends since the 1st grade. Her hubby is Joe's best friend, and was a groomsmen in our wedding. I was with D when she found out that her youngest was a girl, and I was at the hospital the day their daughter was born. They have been SO supportive of everything Joe and I went through to get Ava, and they are just really amazing, awesome friends.
Please, send prayers, good vibes, happy thoughts, healing thoughts, whatever you do for Mrs. B. It will be MUCH appreciated by the family.
I suppose that this is all for now. I am going to finish this movie, and head to bed. Joe and the baby are both sleeping, and I'm going to do some housework and mow the lawn tomorrow before my parents come home on Sunday. I REALLY can't wait for them to get home. I've missed them A LOT.
Stay safe and be blessed my friends. Life is short, sometimes too short. Always make sure to tell the ones you love how you feel. Until we meet again.
