Go Bears!

Sunday already...the weekends sure do go by quickly. I woke up yesterday not feeling very good, my head was hurting and my nose was all stuffed up. I thought I was coming down with a cold so I took some cold meds and went back to bed for a few hours. When I got up, I felt a tad bit better, although I couldn't shake the headache. I had a bunch of errands to run though so I got dressed and headed outside to clean the 3 inches of new snow off of my car. The snow was light anf fluffy, the sun was shining, but it was very windy. I jumped back into the car and blasted the heat. An hour later my errands were done and I was able to head back home. All I wanted to do was crawl back into bed but I made some tea and dragged my butt to the sofa. Next thing I know the phone is ringing and it's 2 hours later. Sara was on her way over and was hoping I had something cooking for dinner. Since I was going out, that was a negative, but I tossed a frozen pizza in the oven and it was ready by the time she got here. She stayed for about an hour and filled me in on graduation in May. Apparently they were able to get former Presidents Clinton and Bush, Sr, to be the keynote speakers at their Commencement. How awesome is that?? Security is going to be crazy...(hopefully I will be felt up...err...I mean patted down by a nice looking Secret Service dude.) They are still working out the details, since it would be nice if the families of the graduates could be at Memorial Field where the graduation is being held...but those bleachers only seat so many people and it is usually first come first served, then the rest go to the arena and watch the ceremony on the big closed circuit tv. Frankly, I wouldn't mind watching the Commencement from inside the is climate controlled and last year it poured throughout the entire ceremony. Considering they usually run around 3 hours or more...I'd rather take my chances indoors than being out in the rain or in the hot sun. Definitely will be an exciting day!!

Last night I went to Cal's brother's birthday party. It was a good time, kind of quiet for a party, but it seems that the whole family is pretty quiet and sedate. Glenn acted surprised but admitted later on that he had a suspicion that something was up. He seemed to enjoy all of the attention though, and liked his gifts. I didn't stay too late since I was still fighting a sinus headache, but I was glad I was there to meet some of the other siblings. Cal's older sister is like a mother to everyone she meets. She isn't much older than I am but she reminds me of Aunt Bea from the Andy Griffith Show. You can just imagine her with an apron on baking pies in the kitchen.

I'm feeling a bit better today. No more headache and the over the counter meds are keeping my sinus passages drained. Hopefully it doesn't turn into an infection, definitely going to keep an eye on that situation.

I've made beef enchiladas and spanish rice for dinner. I was expecting Eric and Jessie to come for dinner but they decided to stay home to watch the game. Probably a good idea, since they both have to work in the morning and so do I. No problem...I will have dinner and leftovers for lunch tomorrow (and the next day LOL). I can now watch the game in my jammies too! LOL things are looking up.

I hope you all have a wonderful week. Take care

I agree with you Kerry, believe me. I may have to try acting really suspiscious so I can be assured of a nice pat down! LOL

Feeling much better today, thanks, AK. I can't even tell you how proud I am of my lil baby girl.

Mexican food always clears my sinuses. Hope you are feeling better too Kerry...if not I have some Mexican food here that might help.

*Hugsss to Denise, cos I know you must be heartbroken*
