I’m in California visiting my family. This morning I was lucky enough to hang out with my cute dad and his band of brothers at the local McDonalds. They sit and talk politics and complain about the current state of the economy. I fit right in.
Now my dad and I are at the hospital, heading in every hour or so to visit my mom. Those of you who listen to my scrapbooking podcast know that she’s had some health setbacks recently. She’s in the ICU right now (which is why I am here). Thank goodness I have a portable job that allowed me to immediately come out when my family needed me. Not sure when I’ll be heading home… so I’ve set up a mobile op center in the hospital cafeteria (my eggs this morning were $.81. I think I may have been overcharged for the value. Haha!).
As always, your virtual hugs and prayers are very much appreciated. This is one of those life stages I would rather bypass. But I’m determined to keep positive and enjoy being with my dad, sister, brother-in-law, and nephew, despite the circumstances.
Now that we have the “where is Lain” question out of the way, let me share with you a little fun stuff.
