Happy Birthday to Me

It was a nice to be celebrating something happy this week! I turned 28. I started off the weekend going to the new furniture store in Atlanta called the Dump (funny name I know). We were not impressed. It was mostly high end furniture at high end prices, not exactly the discount place they are advertising. We then went to the Ballard outlet store, it was really cool and I got alot of great ideas. We also looked at some of the big fabric warehouse in the industrial part of Atlanta. Why all this home shopping you ask, I will post on Friday Andy does not want me to "jinx" it.

On Sunday we went to my mom and dad's for lunch. My mom made a low country boil which is my favorite. Yummy. Lucy got some play time in with her toys. Andy's mom took us out for dinner that night for Italian.

Monday was my actual birthday. In the morning I went shopping with my mom, sister-in-law and niece at Charming Charlies and Ulta. Then we went to Monkey Joe's to let Miss Evelyn blow off some steam. Red Robbin was next on the list. We had a new server who took FOREVER! Lucy choked on her new favorite food, french fries. Lucy now will eat anything, she gets so mad if you are eating and she is not! She chows down on chicken nuggets, yogurt, oatmeal... the list goes on and on, and the kid has no teeth. Next we were off to Lucy's doctor. Happy Birthday to me. Lucy's has had a terrible cold with a nasty, nasty cough. The doctor said there was pretty much nothing they could do. Good times. For dinner we went out with my mom to the Broadway dinner, were they sang to me. All in all I ate my way through a wonderful birthday weekend!

A Long Hard Week

The day of Evelyn's birthday party my sweet, sweet, Grandma had a massive heart attack. She was rushed to the hospital and was slowly getting "better". My mom flew up at the beginning of the week to find out her prognosis was not long term. She was brought back to the nursing home under hospice care. The 24 hour flu swept through her nursing home and took the life of her roommate. My older brother and dad left late Friday night for St. Louis, Andy and I were the last to arrive on Sunday morning around 3am. As we entered my brother's house who goes to medical school in St. Louis we were told to leave because everyone was very sick. We headed to a hotel only to be called about five minutes later to start making our way to the nursing home to say our final goodbyes. The world lost a great lady on Sunday, but not before Lucy and I were able to kiss her goodbye. That was just the last week, she had a lifetime of love, family and joy. She meant so much to me. I am grateful for the time Lucy got to spend with her over the past few months. I keep telling myself its not goodbye, it's till we meet again. I will miss her very much.
