1) Happy birthday today to my baby brother, who is now 27 and many inches taller than me!!! Even though he and I never got along growing up, I am so happy that we are living in the same area now and can get together and enjoy each other, since we never did when we were kids!
2) Jake's first day of school I get a call from his teacher at 3:45pm wondering if I was coming to get Jake. He was convinced that we had agreed to meet at the flagpole after school. First of all, refer to previous blog about our walk to school. Secondly, I didn't even know there was a flag pole or where it was!!!
3) Vacation was wonderful! Although it was 100 degrees and 100% humidity, boating, swimming, etc. were great. It was much needed, as the last 7 months of life have been stressful. Thanks Nana and Papa for a wonderful 4 days! We're looking forward to next year. Funny story: Tyler decided he wasn't ready to go home, so he put 2 and 2 together and realized just b/c Jake was starting school didn't mean he was, so he offered to stay longer and he would just come home by himself later. :)
4) Monday night I called my 94 year old grandpa. He is not in good health and most don't think he will live to see his 95th birthday, which is in November. While I called initially out of respect for my dad and to make grandpa smile, I got off the phone in tears and never happier that I took the time to call, for me. It is weird saying goodbye, without really saying goodbye, knowing I may never talk to my grandpa again.
That is my very eclectic post for the day. That is kind of how I feel my life has been lately. Enjoy the day!
