Is it the weekend yet?

E turns 61 on Thursday and, as is our tradition since we have moved here, I am taking him to Vencenzo's on the back bay in Bonita. It is a lovely restaurant with a beautiful, serene view, impecible service and melt in your mouth good food. We're joining two of our friends for the evening. Now to figure out how to tape Survivor so I don't miss the first episode!

On Sat. the kids (see above) will be coming down to visit. Not sure about Rob yet (far right above) but Chris and Kristen have made dog sitting arrangements and will be down Sat. morning. E has to work so I said we would cook for him for a change...YIKES! Kristen's reply was that she didn't know E liked "Mama's Char Chicken" (old family joke about my perpensity (creative spelling moment) to over cook everything). E suggested tacos...lol

Going to call the dr. back for a follow up apt. about the hand...it is no better and the "burning" has spread to two more fingers and past the wrist. Just Jack appears to be getting better and then has a relapse so may have to call the vet as well. The Oct. kits are almost done so I can gert those out to Jill along with the polo Teri did for us....these are so beautiful. In addition, Lots of nit picky stuff to attand to today.

Am hoping our wall paper comes in as the dining room looks terrible. E has stripped off all but one section in preparation and I packed up a bunch of our curios out of the cabinet.

A friend e-mailed me about a friend of hers who is undergoing chemo and radiation. My friend is asking for 2 page spreads for this woman so she can finish her albums of her children. She has a boy and a girl. If you are interested in helping, please let me know (eeickmeier@comcast.net) and I will forward the information to you.

Hope today is a better day than yesterday for you all. Posted by Picasa

Tacos sound pretty safe, Jules!! It's hard to ruin tacos. LOL! Know whatever you make for e's birthday it will be made with love if not culinary expertise!
