There isn’t a lot of the shrimp orzo salad left. I’m thinking that I’ll buy a small dish and take it to my cousins when we see her later next week. Or maybe I’ll give it to my one neighbor here. I think that’s a better idea. As it is now, I’m taking chocolate chip cookies and a grapefruit pie to her.

Heather My 10 year old granddaughter's birthday is the same as my sister's (the one who committed suicide). For years after my sister's death, her birthday was a source of guilt & grief for me because I hadn't called her on her birthday. I always called her on her birthday! I punished myself over it every year. When my granddaughter was born it helped me to move on. Now it's mostly her birthday I'm thinking of.Carol What a pain that both the car & the garage door are on strike. And so sad for you & your husband still 29 years later. Crushing to lose his parents both at once, even all these years later.NYKAREN I like your list of important stuff! Have a great week! You so deserve it.Marianne Children that age can be impossible, and 25-30 hours a week is a lot. I vote for the family meeting. Ditto what Barbara said, and Heather's suggestions are spot on.Katla I seem to remember that you made a conscious decision not to have alcohol at some point in your life, and it is currently giving you heartburn. Don't drink it. Your doctor just mentioned it because you were doing everything right already & she couldn't come up with any other suggestions. You can get just as much resveratrol from grapes, blueberries, & raspberries. Your wedding day sounds so very lovely, and left you with such amazing memories.Tracey Twins but a generation apart! Photos of your girls in the same dress: priceless.Rori Yea for financial windfalls!Lanette Isn't that weird about the diverticulosis? I got the same news from my recent colonoscopy, and yet the one 10 years ago showed very few diverticuli. And I eat fiber. So what's with that?Amber Ick. I guess JR will be keeping your chimney flue emptied out from now on. Good little man. Love the picture of your daughter sneaking a snuggle with her brother.Lisa I, for one, would find sarcastic greeting cards irresistible. That card company missed out on that opportunity! You could probably print them yourself. And sell them online. I'd be one of your customers.Debby in VA Gorgeous photo. Love the matching jammies.Flea "Timely". Ha. From a bureaucratic government agency.Barbie The Valentine's Day line-dancing sounds like it was really fun. And Jake got a goodies windfall!Michele I'd be cautious with keeping & gifting a leftover seafood dish, especially if it sat out for very long. It sounds as if you were pleased with most of the food that was brought for the pot luck.Rebecca Melting heart. Thank you for the Athena Valentine. What a dolly.Sue So satisfying to have that new stainless steel hot water heater and a nice hot shower.Machka Envious of your fresh garden produce. I love a sweet cucumber.Pip That car looks new. What a detailing job! Geez! The Beast looks Fab!
And…Yogi is the bomb.
Yesterday (day 1 of a 3-day meet) my granddaughter improved 2 of her swimming times, but was still disappointed in her performance. She is trying to qualify for the state championships in the 11-12 age group because she will turn 11 soon. Swimmers who age up between the district & state meets face this challenge. I love watching her. She is the mother hen and life coach of the other girls on the team. But she doesn't want anyone to talk to her before she swims. She walks away from her mom (a swimmer) before she races.
