Memorial Day

We live in the land of the free, because of the brave. I say that every year, and mean it. Thanks to all the Vets out there.

It's been a nice weekend. Saturday morning we went and ordered new laminate flooring for the living room, then went to the diner for a late breakfast. While we were on the way to upgrade our phones, Heather texted to see what we were doing. She invited us down for a cookout. So we had a nice visit with her, Ed, and the kids. And Honey Rose, of course.

We talked about our trip to see Amary for her birthday, and we're buying plane tickets hopefully this week. We'll spend part of the week with Ben, Manda and Amary, then relocate 4 hours south and visit Steph, Dan and Toast. We want to go to the west coast beach so we can say we waded in the Pacific. 

Heather wants to go on a four day cruise for her 40th birthday. The conversation started with me volunteering Ralph to stay with the kids and Honey, and ended up with us going on the cruise with them! 

In between the trip to the Pacific NorthWest and the cruise, I'll get a new left knee, July 30. The ortho said they are doing a new type of procedure in which the patient goes home postop day 2, and most people are off the cane by week 4. So I should only miss a few days, if any, of work in September. 

One more month of school before summer break! The kids are ready, and the staff is more than ready! 

I've already made lemon bars and iced tea, and the baked beans are in the oven for our dinner. I've promised Mom burgers and hot dogs and beans- she's excited. 

And the beat goes on!
