1. Thank you, dear friends. Your love and support are just what the doctor ordered. In the lobby of our hotel is a big dispenser of this special water that's supposed to make everything all better. (Well, maybe it's just regular old water with a bunch of stuff in it like fruits and herbs and such, but I've got it in my head that it has magical healing powers, and I make poor Aunt Chrissy take a sip every time we pass it.) "You do realize that we're in Cleveland and not at Lourdes, right?" she says every time I hand her a cup. Well, your comments are like that damn water, kids, so I'm drenching her in them every chance I get.
2. A few moments ago I got a really good chuckle out of her. We were watching the TeeVee and a commercial came on for Kourtney and Kim take Miami. So I put on my very best pouty kissy face and said..."Kourtney and Kim take Miami? How about Crys and Coni take Cleveland!?" And then we started cutting up about what that might look like and how we'd finally have enough money to do all of the things we'd like to do, like send Stewey to charm school, get Bosco a motorbike, and finally open up that needlework shop. Look out, Bravo , here we come!
3. At one point last night I got so frustrated that I am of no help whatsoever that I said (right in the middle of a snotty ugly cry)...."Oh, sissy. You would have been better of with a labradoodle." Thank God my sister is my sister and she knows that no matter how bad the circumstances might be....I will find a way to turn it all around and make it all about MEEEEEEE, because she just smiled and patted my hand and made me feel much better.
We headed off to yet another procedure. This one will involve anesthesia, so at least I know Aunt Chrissy will be able to get a minute of peace and quiet.
Thanks again for all of your love and support! We're hoping to return to our regularly scheduled programming real soon!
