It's Amanda's birthday!

Manda is 29 today! How can that be, LOL. And two weeks from Saturday she'll walk down the aisle and become a married lady!

We're so proud of her. She went off to college in Florida to study engineering at Embry Riddle University right after high school. I would have been more of a nervous wreck if my brother John and sister in law Morgan didn't live 100 miles from her school. When she got evacuated for a hurricane the first week she was there, John went and got her and took her to their house for several days.

After graduating from ERAU with a degree in physics engineering, Manda moved to Houston to work for Boeing. She only knew one person in Houston! I don't know if I'd ever be that brave, to move so far from everyone. She quickly settled in, and a couple of years ago met Ben. So the girl from south jersey had to move to Houston to meet the guy from Omaha, Nebraska!

Along her journey, Manda went to the University of Houston for a Master's degree in Physics, came home and took her cat to Texas, and fell in love. She and Ben are getting married in 2 weeks, and will honeymoon in Hawaii! Happy Birthday, Precious!

In other news, the visiting nurse discharged me today. The incision is just about healed. And I'm totally annoyed with the medical community, but that's another story.

And the beat goes on!
