Still here

I know I've been neglectful of the blog when Stadelman is on my case. Geesh. And he's not even my boss anymore....

So what have we been up to? The Marambas were down for a visit last weekend. Kris and I managed to be in the same room during the presidential debate without a fist fight, so I'd say it was a good time. Julia seemed to think they were one entity: KrisandPhilip.

We had a lot of fun and plenty of wine. And Philip and I kicked butt in 80s Trivial Pursuit.
We also got new living room furniture. Finally. Actually we bought it several weeks ago, and I was hoping it would be here in time for Cherry fest, and it wasn't. Then I thought for sure it would be here for the Marambas. It came four days after they left. So we need some new guests to see our pretty new couch, etc.!

I can't believe I'm so excited over furniture but it finally feels like home to me now after living here two years. Before, we had my old loveseat from college that was totally out of style and a yellow couch that had seen better days. The coffee table was a hand-me down. Nothing matched. We're grown-ups now.

We're also planning an Elmo party. That's right. Julia is going to be two in a couple of weeks. We've got Elmo decorations out the wazoo...

Mike had a few tired days, but is doing well. He has a CT scan on the 10th and then we'll see Dr. Neel on the 14th to get the results. I can't even begin to describe the pins and needles we'll be on those four days. We really need to get some good news, to hear that this chemo is working. Please say some extra prayers.

Hey, who says I'm not the boss any more? Did I make you cry at all?
I'm not surprised you and Philip won the '80s - Kris is too young to remember them, and Mike was consumed with green and white the whole decade. I bet he could have gotten the Reggie Oliver questions right, though.

That Stadelman is awfully bossy. But, I've been itching for an update as well....Sweet new furniture!! That little girl is pretty sweet too. (I've got an older man for her - he's almost 3.) We're thinking of you and sending lots of prayers, good vibes and love.
