Happy Easter!

Last night, Erin had a "Red Carpet Birthday Party" to attend, which involved a limo picking her up at our home. Yes, for a 10-year-old's party. You read that correctly. All of the party-goers were picked up and taken to Ali's house, where a red carpet graced the walkway to the front door. They then dined on fancy pasta dishes, sipped sparkling cider, and later, danced. They did not eat birthday cake but rather fancy little dessert pastries.

I don't know about you, but when I was that age, we were still running around screaming at birthday parties, playing pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey and thinking that all boys had cooties. (Actually, I might even still think that all boys have cooties. But I digress.) The last thing I would've wanted to do was sit still for a formal dinner.

Times have changed?

On a different note, Joe is still waiting for release from his cardiologist (she's out of town), but we have a tentative surgery date of next Friday at USC Medical Center. He's doing about the same; still can't walk or sit up, but his spirits are, as always, bright. Sometimes I look like such a biotch in comparison, damnit!

Thank you, friends, for your sweet words of encouragement and support. You're all the best!

Happy Easter!

I hope things get better soon with Joe. He can't even sit up? That's awful.

The whole limo thing? Crazy, huh? A whole different kind of fun. What next?

I hope all goes smoothly with your husband. What a nightmare.

I know what you mean about being 10--we need to bring back childhood.

Holy Cow! That Birthday party sounds amazing. At first, I wanted to have a Birthday party at our house for Kaish. But then, as I saw the DESTRUCTION that can occur with just Naji, Sabria and Kaish together, I thought better of having 25 little playmates over. We always do something fun : )-but NEVER as fun as a limo. Oh my gosh!

I pray for you and Joe all the time! XO
