I'd like to ask for special prayers for Julie & Gerald. Julie is my co worker. She's close to my age & was just diagnosed w/ colon cancer. It's especially tough because we've become friends this year. I know what she & Gerald is going & will go through; I don't wish it on anyone.
She lost her parents years ago & is such a giver. Her surgery is scheduled for Sept 9. Please
pray the cancer is contained & they get it all.

a lot of money

We have a small yoga ball for Colin. Yesterday he was playing w/ it. I heard it bounce against the fireplace screen until I told him to stop.;Then he began to dribble it. Suddenly he stopped & went into the bathroom. He came out w/ a tooth in his hand & exclaimed I'm going to get a lot of money now. I told him the tooth fairy would only come if he was not encouraging his loose teeth to come out faster. He sd it was lose & was bent down. I wonder if the yoga ball hit him
& helped the tooth along.
PS to other tooth fairies Wait until the child is asleep. I didn't want to forget & the tooth fairy not come. I forgot he likes to rearrange his pillows 20 times before he falls asleep. He found the money last night & was so excited.

I had the best time at the CKC. I got some great sb stuff. It was a fabulous day.
I shopped from 10am-4:30pm. I didn't take any classes this year. Next year I'll
take a class on Saturday. I like to shop on Fridays.
I also got a chance to crop all day Saturday from 10am-midnight. I'm still not finished
with my cruise book.

Friday they finally prescribed something for G's pain in his feet. Yeah it only took 2 months. He's better, not great but better. I can tell he's in less pain. He's done a little cleaning around the house. Yippee!! I pray he's back to work soon, he's done well but he's sick of being home.
I'm trying my best to get him to scrapbook but he's not interested. He's not interested in any of my home projects or anything on my honey do list. I hope to get busy on one of the home projects next weekend.
This weekend I'm going to the CKC & scrapping. Woo hoo!!

More guys have joined the advanced gymnastics class. They are break dancers & use the class to advance their skills & talents. Colin is the smallest & youngest member. He's too eager for his turn. Yesterday he was too close to the guy in front of him & got kicked in mouth. It knocked out his front tooth. The tooth had been loose then tightened up. He had a tiny gap & the tooth had moved over. When he was kicked in the mouth he was hurt & stunned. He didn't cry he just
said he kicked me in the mouth. I hope the tooth breaking doesn't cause permanent damage.
He may be snag a tooth a while. Colin continued w/ class like a little trooper. I think it helped
that I didn't make a big deal out of it. The tooth fairy forgot to come last night. I hope the fairy
remembers tonight.

Uncle of the year

G is going for the title of uncle of the year. :) He picks up Colin & my niece daily from school.
He waits at my parents home until my sister or BIL are able to pick up my niece. We've both
been told it's OK to leave her alone until her parents come but G & I are not comfortable
leaving her alone. She is very mature for her age & a good child. I don't worry about what
she would do, I worry about some perv lurking & watching for a child unattended.
I cringe when I hear about an abducted child.
G is still having trouble with his feet & hands. He goes Friday to have his port flushed. He hopes
to get a different answer to help ease his pain. Many night pain in his feet disrupt his sleep.

Great Weekend

I took a little trip without the guys. I missed them, but had the best time. I had such a good time I'm planning to return next year.
I was able to meet great women & sb 23 pages. Wooo hoo my cruise sb is almost finished.
