Weekend Update...

I sometimes think that it is good to come to work on Monday, to try to catch my breath and have a bit of relief from the weekend craziness! On Friday, I had my follow-up mammogram to check up on the lymph node on my left armpit that had shown up irregular at the beginning of the year, and everything looks fine so I don't have to come back for another until next year. Mom had her knee surgery, and though they didn't take her to surgery until 3:20pm, everything went well, and Dr. Bohlen (he is awesome and from Hastings Orthapaedics in Hastings, NE) said the bone was actually in better shape than her other leg when they did the first surgery on it. Of course, on that leg she had gone through a great deal of trauma from a very bad break at my niece's basketball game a couple years ago. So after Dad and I had dozed off in the waiting room (thankfully we were the only ones there), we got to go back to recovery and talk to Dr. Bohlen on the phone because he had been running behind, went upstairs to check a patient and then was late for something else, so forgot to stop back by and talk to us. Dad and I got a good chuckle out of that, because we were sleeping and he was late, and none of us even remembered the other until later! (Guess it was funnier at the time)! It was 9:30pm by the time I dropped Dad off and parked the car at home, and drug myself into the house. We had been at the hospital since 12 and we were pooped! Saturday morning took us to Morman Island near Grand Island, NE where we took 3 of our GS for an overnight camp out. We had a GREAT time! Hiking, cooking outside, doing a directional scavenger hunt, the girls went swimming in the lake, smores by the fire, making bracelets, walking sticks, and leaf coasters, and then being driven into the tents by the evening chill and the GIANT mosquitoes! We had a terrific time visiting with the girls from the other troops. Yesterday, we returned home briefly, unloaded the car, repacked Mina's suitcase, and returned to Hastings so that Grandpa and Granny H. could take their granddaughter for the week. Chris will bring her back home after the 4th of July shindig at Keith and Carol's. He is heading to Fairbury Thursday afternoon, and they will come home on Saturday so that Mina can accolyte at church on Sunday. Which leaves me in Lawrence to work on Friday and Saturday. Thankfully that is all that is going on this week, though we are filling beading orders for our special Pixybug customers, and trying to catch up on chores at home!

We had a great time, and it is always fun to be with our gs and to talk to other GS and leaders!
