’09 April

My son is forty years old this month. But what does that say about ME?!

ALOHA! Today’s a travel day. I’m off to Kauai. Sharon will pick me up at the airport and I’ll get to stay with her at her son’s faaabulous house where I also got to stay in 2006 and 2007. Wow is right.

Saturday Molly got Married!…

Saturday Molly got Married! I helped Nancy for a few hours in the morning putting together all the gorgeous flowers.

Congratulations to the whole family!

(David’s step-mom, Molly, Nancy, David, David’s dad)

And then I went…

And then I went over to Lona and Hartley’s to finish up their yearly tenant mailing for fees and rent increases which takes hours and hours and hours.

Is this not the…

April 10

Is this not the coolest group of playgroup of moms. I am SO happy I get to play too! They’ve all got kids Kaitlin’s age…

…and we’re well along with the second flight, siblings of Kaitlin’s pals, two of whom are in the picture, two more playing, three more inutero. Angela is the one Not having twins…

(Andrea-Sam and David; Charlean-Sydne and JoJo; Liza-Marquez and Paloma; Amy-Sydney and Charlotte; Angela-Kaitlin and baby Girl; Katie-Nora and baby Girl One And baby Girl Two(!); Heidi-Sydney. Regulars who are missing: Emily-Zoe and Zack; Susie-Ellie and Brandon)

This is true. …

This is true. The girls are over playing with the Tinkerbell house. The two boys find the only two boy-ish toys in the house and proceed to have superhero fights bam bash whack whack. True.

I had a lovely…

April 8

I had a lovely dinner with Roger and Sandy last night with all soft food because of my &^@$# tooth. It was delicious none the less. This is Sandy’s Grandbaby Lucas’s baby brother Everett! Hi Everett! China sent this picture from Atlanta where the whole family is on a movie shoot for a few months.

And then today, my dentist Saint Marc to the rescue! He cleaned up that stubby old plug of a tooth, buzzed out some decay in the bits that were left in my mouth, and glued that sucker right back where he came from. It didn’t hurt. It’s done, and it cost $125! I am One HAPPY Camper! He did remind me of another tooth that needs fixing soon (and that is becoming more and more sensitive to hot and cold btw) which he wants to fix for $1325. Hmmm. He does do lovely work…

Then I went out with Brigitte and I got to eat a sandwich with chewy bread!

In the last six weeks:

My big sister was diagnosed with breast cancer, had a lumpectomy, they found no spread, she’s on radiation every day for a month, then meds for five years, and every reason to believe she will be fine.

My little sister was in the hospital for a week with what was eventually diagnosed as gastroenteritis. She’s been terribly sick and off work for a month.

My friend Ljubica’s son was in a very serious motorcycle accident and is still in the hospital three weeks later.

And now, a tooth just fell out of my mouth and I’ll tell ya, it feels ExPensive, but I’ve got some perspective right now and it hardly seems worth mentioning.

Yesterday Sharon treated me…

April 5

Yesterday Sharon treated me and cousin Nancy to a swell evening. Thanks Sharon!

Today Rosie had an open house in celebration of the final end finished I-can-Not-believe-the-day-has-come done-done of her 2 year project to rebuild her entire property. All three residences look gorgeous. Marsha and Kelly were there. Mazel tov Rosie!

Then I watched Kaitlin…

Then I watched Kaitlin while D&A went out for the evening of Darryl’s Big Four OHH! Since it was her daddy’s birthday we made a sandwich in the shape of the letter D.

Happy Happy Birthday Darryl! I love you!!

…and then…36 hours later…

…and then…36 hours later (tuc-tuc, overnight bus, taxi, flight, walkwalkwalk, flight, pick-up from Darryl)…Home Sweet Home!

Followed the next day…

Followed the next day by a great time with Kaitlin. We had a delicious lunch out, we did secret surprises for her daddy’s birthday, we sang and danced and had jolly good fun.

Dang, I didn’t get a picture of Kaitlin and her first ever talking snap dragon. Now that was a kick.
