Good morning! As you say your prayers today, I ask that you remember my sister, Ashley. She is having surgery at 11:00 this morning on her heel. I went with her to meet with an orthopedic specialist yesterday about a painful bump that has developed on the back of her heel. Today she will be having bone shaved off of the back of her heel and a small portion of her achilles tendon may have to be removed and re-attached. Please pray that surgery goes well and that the healing process is quick and not too painful. I appreciate your prayers!!!
It's been a great week for us so far. Wednesday morning, Joe and I went to the grocery store. We stocked up on groceries, made it to the check out line, had all of our groceries bagged, and then......I didn't have my wallet. I forgot to put it in the diaper bag. So, I had to load Joe back in the car, drive home, get my wallet, drive back, get Joe out of the car, pay for the groceries, then head back home to unload them and put them away. I was exhausted by 10:00. Wednesday evening I went to church with my mom and Tina Earnshaw (she is a celebrity make-up artist from London. She has done lots of movies including; Titanic, Marley and Me, Mama Mia, Spider Man 2 and 3, 9 Gweneth Paltrow movies, + +) My mom carries her makeup line at N Vogue and they have developed a great friendship. Mom has gotten to mentor her in her faith over the last has been cool to see her grow as she gets to know Jesus. How cool is it that she can now be a light to Hollywood?!? Anyways, we had a great time at church, and a few other N Vogue staffers met us there too. We all went to dinner afterwards. It was good getting out of the house to be with friends. (Thank you, John for watching JoeJoe!!!) The boys had a blast at home. They always do.
Oh, funny thing... My mom and Tina where on a local news show Wednesday morning. It was soooo funny watching Joe recognize his Honey on TV. He was so excited, but didn't really know what was going on.... why she was on the t.v. screen. So cute.
Yesterday, I went with Ashley to the doctor way too early in the morning. I'll just say that yesterday morning was chaos. But, Ash and I finally made it to the doctor, 20 minutes late :) Cindy watched Joe for me to be able to go with Ashley. (Thank you CIndy!!!!!) Joe loves the Rainey family. After the doctor's visit was over, Joe and I went home and he played while I tried to relax. It felt so good to just sit for the 2 hours that he napped. I had worship practice last night, so John and Joe got another boys night. I'm sure there was lots of playing going on.
That brings us to Friday. Not much going on. Joe and I plan to go see Ashley when she gets home from surgery. Other than that, we are going to take it easy. (or I am at least) John and I will have our usual chinese take out date after Joe goes down tonight. We'll be watching the LOST episode that we missed Wed night. YAY! Joe and I can't wait for him to get home this evening. Sooooo glad it's the weekend! But, not so glad that there is lots of cleaning to do!
Hope you all have a great weekend!!!
