I love my friends! I know you will all be praying. Here's a couple of word pictures to help you remember to, 'kay? If you drive past a construction site, think of them drilling into my bones. :-) Or having an iced drink could remind you of the super cool machine I have to reduce the swelling of the knee and speed healing. If you're feeling sleepy, picture me snoring on the operating table.
(Would it be in bad taste to write my website in permanent marker near the surgery site asking everyone to sign up for the infrequent, humorous newsletter?!?)
All the presents are wrapped, the birthday invitation is made, and I guess I should get an hour or two of sleep before we leave. I'm not even going to list all the things on my list that aren't done!
BTW, I'm so proud of my daughter. She turns nine on January 5th. Instead of having a traditional party, she's sharing the special day with her best friend of the last 7 1/2 years. We've rented a HUGE play structure at a nearby church. I had to have the invitation made up by tonight so the other mother could make copies and distribute them to 2/3 of the elementary school! Yes, we're crazy, but it's for the most wonderful cause. The girls don't want any presents. Instead, they want people to make a donation toward an item from the World Vision gift catalog!!
See you on the flip side ...
