Weekend Update

My, look how time flies... where have I been for the last 6 days?

Dad is still employed as of Friday. Does that mean good news? Not sure. Thanks to all who left such upbeat and positive comments last week - it's so nice to have a blogosphere full of friends.

We spent a nice afternoon visiting with Aunt Amy and Uncle Ken today - and Madison had her first real swimming pool experience. I can't believe I had my camera with me and didn't get pictures! Anyway, it was a lot of fun for her after the initial weirdness of it. We had a great dinner and good friends always = good times. On a side note - as I stated before I am not always adept at difficult situations, but just being with a friend during a difficult time is exactly how I try best at helping out. It was nice to see smiles today.

It's been a sleepless weekend for me, and I'm not so sure why? Just one of those things that happens to me since childhood. When I was really little and I couldn't sleep, if I simply changed scenery I could lull myself to sleep. My mom would know when she found me on the sofa in the morning. That doesn't work anymore for some reason. I caught some of SNL last night - some of my oldest friends know I have always been a huge SNL fan. Haven't watched it much since my bedtime got so early - and I know now that I'm not missing much. One has to wonder when Lorne Michaels will finally give it up. I know this show has had it's bad times in the past (can you say Anthony Michael Hall and Robert Downey Jr.?) but this spell seems to have been dragging on and on. Now I've read reports he's cutting the cast for budgetary reasons? He's already lost the window to go out on top - but come, on!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

I'm glad you had a good weekend. We all need that every once in a while. Time with good friends grounds us and also provide wonderful relaxation.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your Dad!

Glad you had a good weekend but the no sleep thing really sucks! I hate that. I hope that you get a good night's rest tonight.

You didn't have your camera!!!! Well you'll just have to do a replay next time you visit them :)

Well, hopefully, you're getting more sleep and that things are going well for you. I totally agree with you on SNL, it's been horrible for some time now.

I can't believe you didn't get any pics of Madison swimming, bet she had a blast though. I hope your friend is doing alright. Sometimes all it takes to comfort someone is just letting them know you're there.

Sorry I missed you guys over the weekend.. Josh had the flu and I didn't want to expose anyone just in case I would come down with it. Glad you guys had a good time!
