Getting Ready

Getting ready for what?  Well…..I am heading out-of-town for a long weekend.  And when Kelly is out-of-town, that leaves Roger, Jenna & Julie to fend for themselves.  This really isn’t too hard since we all take care of my mom together.  It just gets a little difficult when my sister & dad have to do things that they are not used to doing.  I can do things in a matter of minutes because of the constant repetition.  I have pretty much learned the fastest way to do most things.  And I have all of the food recipes & pill/supplements memorized…since it is always my job.  I always really appreciate when they pull together to give me a vacation!  I will miss them a ton as always.  My mom feels like my Siamese twin sometimes.  I feel like we are connected.

So, where am I going?  I am heading to Chicago with my friends Catey & Lindsay for a bunch of outdoor concerts (DMB Caravan) and a Twin’s/White Sox game.  I know my mom will be watching the game on tv!  The ladies & I went to Chicago 2 years ago & had a crazy fun time…so I am pretty sure it will be the same.  I have been looking forward to it for quite some time now.  I always love my girls weekends!  You know that I will have pictures to share!

We hope that everybody had a great holiday weekend.  Ours was very nice and low-key.  We did the usual stuff.  Grilled out, went on walks, went on drives and did a little shopping.  One fun thing that I got to do was go to brunch with my friends Susan & Dana.  Susan has been getting her MBA in Chile for the last year and a half….so we don’t get to see her very often.  Hopefully she will come back to the states when she is done with school this December, but you just never  know with Susan.  We will just have to wait and see!

Susan, Dana & I (Missed you Kate!)

And that pretty much sums up all that we have been doing.  My mom and I just got back from running errands & now I get to do some time on the treadmill!  Thank you for checking in!

Prayer for Julie:  Pray for a peaceful and easy weekend for my family while I am away this weekend!
