Tom & Kelly

Tom and Kelly got here on Monday evening, it was really great to see Tom again and it's always great to see Kelly. They have been pretty busy catching up with old friends while they are here so they didn't really get much of a vacation but they look happy. Tonight they went to a wedding in Saratoga and tomorrow they're going to a brunch. I think that Tom is going to go home on Monday or Tuesday but I hope he decides to stay longer. Kelly is going to stay for a while. I'm not sure if she has any more catering jobs lined up but hopefully we will make it over to Santa Cruz to check out my new place and of course have sushi at Mobos.

I'm finally getting my house cleaned up and everything back in order from the party and the family visiting. It always seems to go by way too fast and I can't wait until the next time. We were going to have a Halloween party but that car postponed because Anna Maria is going to go into the hospital and have all or part of her thyroid remove, I hope everything turns out good.

JP's birthday party

David, Anna Maria, Deziree and JohnPatrick got here on Thursday. Andy, Aubrey and Stephen got here on Friday evening. Unfortunately they had a layover in Salt Lake City and when they went to board the plane they only had enough room four one so Andy had to stay and take the next flight so David drove to Oakland to get him a couple of hours later. It was really nice to meet Andy and he fit right in the family immediate, you could deal it out as well as take it. Our family is very close but we do love to tease each other.

On Saturday we had a Harry Potter birthday party for JohnPatrick. We had about twenty four people here and everybody had a great time. We decided to order pizza because that is JohnPatricks favorite. I have never been to a party where they had a pinata. The kids had a lot of fun busting it open and the adults had a lot fun watching it. Of course the baby was a big hit and everybody wanted to hold him.  As usual the time went by way to fast.

I went to the doctor on Thursday and because the incision on my arm was getting infected they put me on antibiotics. Before David left on the plane to go home I asked him to give me one of my antibiotics and it's a good thing that I was paying attention because he tried to give me one of Brodie's tranquilizers... he said it was an accident. Brodie has a sore leg so said she had some tranquilizers from her last operation they told me to give those to her and hopefully her leg will feel better and it looks like it's working.

Kelly called and said that Kevin party was a lot of fun but they were tired so they were going to rest and they will be back here tomorrow.

Anna Maria and JohnPatrick decided to stay for a couple of days longer.

Kelly got here last night and she really looked tired. She started off in Florida and then drove to Las Vegas, took a plane to Wyoming and then to Colorado and then flew back to Las Vegas, drove to San Diego and then drove here. She said she was hoping to have a couple of days off before she starts her catering business but she is going to cater the San Francisco football game tomorrow so she took off early this morning to get everything ready. Hopefully she will be able to rest on Monday and Tuesday and then Wednesday she is driving to her brothers to help them with his party, his party sounds like a lot of fun.

I'm just relaxing this weekend, watching TV, listening to the stereo and talking to friends online.

Next week I will have a lot of family here and it sounds like we're going to Casa De Fruita for a Renaissance Fair. Both the Georgia and the Modesto Van Sant's are going to be here and we are going to celebrate JohnPatrick's birthday. At the end of the month they are going to come back to celebrate Halloween and have a Halloween party. I'm going to get the decorations out next week so they can all help me decorate, I'm so excited.

That is the shortest length of time I had never had a cast on my arm. They put it on last Friday and took it off yesterday. I still have two pins in the end of my finger and they are not going to be fun when it is time to pull them out.  I also still have stitches in my army but at least I got rid of that cast. They never did tell me when I get the pins out but they told me the next hand clinic was in November.

I got the keys for my new house today and I still can't believe it. I can't wait to go see it now that I know it is mine.

Kelly will be here tomorrow evening and it sounds like she's going to stay here for a couple of weeks. Her brother Kevin is having a huge party for Halloween and she is going to help them with it, it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun and I wish he lived closer.
