First, I apologize for not writing yesterday. We've had house guests for the entire weekend, so I haven't had the chance before now to put together an entry. I'm squeezing this one in before (a) the Bears dismantle the Dolphins, (b) I make my first ever beer-can chicken, and (c) the Toronto Argonauts start their drive toward the Grey Cup. My beloved Maple Leafs won big last night as well, so (almost) all is well in the world. Of course, there's still the small matter of the needed heart, but you can't have everything at the moment you want it, right?
A second apology -- I'm sorry I haven't been sharing as many photos. As I've mentioned previously, the posting of pictures is the biggest albatross in the Blogger world, enough so that sometimes it just isn't worth the bother. Today, things seem to be working okay, so I'll catch things up a bit.
Yesterday, Patty finished her second round of IVIG while Cindy watched movies and Kathleen and I checked out the huge Woodman's grocery store in North Aurora. In the evening, the four of us saw Borat, the new mockumentary with Sasha Cohen of Da Ali G Show. The film crossed pretty nearly every line of good taste, and was about as un-PC as you can imagine. Having said this, the movie provided us with some much-needed roaring laughs. We then went out for dinner, which was also fun. When we returned home, I fell asleep on the sofa while the ladies stayed up and talked about whatever women talk about -- knitting and housecleaning, perhaps? Oh, come ON...I was KIDDING!
Today, Patty has been feeling pretty rough, although she has managed to keep her stomach down so far. As you can see from the photo, I convinced her to wear my new Bears jersey, which actually falls to about her knees. She thinks it looks a bit silly. Of course, I think it looks great; Urlacher doesn't hold a candle to her. More soon...
Patty, Cindy, and Kathleen
