??? already?? no WAY!! School is in session, we are already into a routine with it, and I'm dragging my feet! I love summer, and probably need to move to where it happens all year long.
This week was a little crazy....working hard, and running hard, and getting back to school...I'm forcing myself to put down some thoughts here, before they're all forgotten, it's been THAT kind of busy!
Ran to the airport Friday to pick up my eldest sister...Patty is driving mom and dad to her home in Colo Spgs...we had a short but great visit as I worked Saturday, which turned out to be a good thing, as I'm not good with goodbyes. Molly handled it well, but I'm not sure she understands they'll all be gone for awhile. *sniff* Prayers for my mom as she continues her path to full recovery, I'm gonna miss her something fierce!
Today is my only day off till the holiday weekend, and I'm putting my house back together...we lost a pool pump, the glass to my stove, and the A/C in ONE WEEK!! We're still in a drought outside, but inside my house?? it's POURING!! everything is fixed now except my poor checkbook...which has taken a monumental hit...so I can't gripe about all the extra work hours....I think I'll be paying off Disney until Christmas, and am on a self-imposed spending ban until that day is reached. (which really sux cuz reallllllyyy i want an Ipad!!!)
Gabe passed his background check and is now a licenced bail-bondsman with brother Bill, while also being a full time college student, husband, and daddy. Him and Ally will be getting married in a private ceremony in Vegas on New Years! CONGRATS KIDS!! I am so proud of the man he became...worried about him in his teenage years as he struggled with "being a Miller" but in living up to the genepool, he's thisssssss close to reaching all his goals. Our Ally, his fiance, is an amazing woman in her own right...And I am so proud & happy to have her as my daughter-in-law.
Little Bill slipped home for a visit, and as usual i stocked up the cupboards and fridge only to find out that both the boys are now living healthy...gabe's down 25 pounds, and Bill? 10-15! He didn't eat anything i bought, opting for the watermelon, salads, and broiled fish! I need to get on this bandwagon! He continues to be my amazing son, the man with the plan. I whined that he needed to live closer, and he calmly looked at me and said "2 years, mom". The man with the plan, who sticks to it no matter what. I want to be just like him when i grow up!
Shauna, who's been finishing up a big case at work in DC, took the weekend to visit with some girlfriends and her sis, Jennie, in Jamaica! She's just getting home....and we're hoping that the weekend Glen Beck fiasco in the district isn't messing with her inbound flight too bad. I think we're going to get together the end of next month...so I'm giddy with anticipation over that!
and molly....my beautiful molly...is SO loving being back to school with all of her teachers and friends. She regaining more words everyday...and although she doesn't say bad ones, will admonish her father if he slips (Cardinal pitching), which lets me know she is AWARE of the bad words! It's too funny to watch her hands on her hips, and her low voice saying "dadddddddddddy" in that tone that means he's in trouble.
She was so animated at Disney! and LOVED the scary rides!! My beautiful girl....
and this? this is 13 seconds after we walked from the airport to the long-distance parking. :-)
ALSO? A big shout out to all the readers that nominated me for the medical transcription blogging award!! I was so surprised and happy to add it! THANK YOU!!
