Diana - Enjoy your cruise, relax and have a wonderful adventure.

Belle, I wish we all lived closer - I think it would be fun if you and I were able to sit down (with a bottle of wine!) and just talk about life and family.

I'm still not weighing in - I will start again toward the end of the month. Think I need to go with the flow on "stuff" - My MIL fell yesterday, but she is ok -- she's spending a lot of time crying, nothing they can do for her back (except meds help a little) -- the wedding was 13 days ago and she has no memories of that day. It is so sad, and so difficult for my DH - He is now going there usually twice a day and half of Saturday & half of Sunday.

My kids are healthy, my grandson is healty, my husband is healthy, I'm actually healthy --- so guess I should be grateful for the positive things. Jan
