friends & fellow parents! HMJ is brewed & tasting fine this morning. I've spent the majority of this past week sleeping & am finally awake; feeling almost human again. About time. husband, kt & I are leaving later this morning to go see my family - especially my dad. His 79th birthday was Tuesday, then there's Father's Day on Sunday & he retires (last day of work) is on the 20th. This Saturday is a celebration of all of these events. Big shrimp boil at my big sister's house with all the fixings. I believe I'll put together a butter pecan ice cream torte for the dessert table. I'm so excited to get out of town - I haven't done anything out of the house that wasn't medical/treatment related since last August. It's about time to get out & have some fun. Even if I have to sleep all next week! Enjoy your day friends. Find a reason to smile - it's good for the soul.
