Also getting Andrew off to camp. We went through his clothes yesterday. Whew! Couple WAY too much stuff - most of it old and just never disposed of over the years - with his inability to say "get rid of this," and it makes for a big job. (It goes back to his packrat days of keeping Little Debbie boxes, empty Fritos bags, etc. - I would find his closet full of those kinds of things when he was four and five years old.) And ML is busy getting back into her job and finding summer things to do as well.
I did a mile on the elliptical yesterday!

My dear college friend Barby came to see me a couple of weeks ago. She was staying close by and was here to pick up her son from college. I did not realize at the time that I was coming down with a massive cold - had 101 fever by the next morning - and was very relieved that she and her two children who were with her, and who were in our house and around me for four hours, did not get sick.

--Andrew got my printer to work this evening. Wonderful - now I have a great setup on my desk. That's good, because I have a lot to do this summer here at the desk. Writing, working on a Bible curriculum, editing a memoir for someone in my church - it will be great to have everything right here at my fingertips, in my own workspace.
--I made a new, made-up recipe last night. Wish I'd taken a picture. It was ground chicken, made into meatballs with garlic powder, cracker crumbs, celery salt, egg, and tiny chopped up pieces of celery and onion sauted together. I browned them and made sure they were done all the way through, and then served them with some leftover beef gravy from Sunday. They were very good if I do say so myself!
--Graduation tomorrow night. This is the class that called me their "school mom" all the way through high school. They are a good class - very academically oriented - and they will be missed.
--Time to get back to the gym! I can tell it's time by the way some of my clothes are fitting.
--Don't order plants through a catalog. The ones we bought, that looked so beautiful in the pictures, are not growing at all.
--The knockout rosebushes that Mike put in last week are going to be lovely.

This is from last Christmas but I haven't had an opportunity to post it until now, with Andrew gone all semester, as it was only on his computer. These "elves" did this for a humorous student body program - it is a takeoff on something that the Dallas Brass group did when they were there for a formal concert. In case you can't tell, my (illustrious?) son is second from the left.

- Heard at church tonight of a friend who is in excruciating pain from a lower back disk that herniated when he sneezed last week. Brought back memories of the morning when Mike was home with Andrew, back in 1992, when the same thing happened. Tomorrow morning this friend will go to the same neurosurgeon that operated on Mike back then. Just hope he has the same success that Mike did.
- Andrew and the team have their last service tomorrow morning in a Christian school - then will drive home through the east coast rain. They are ready to be done even though they will also miss it.
