Checking in & Check up

And so the whirlwind graduation weekend has begun.  Last night the hubster and I attended graduation dinner for the “Wescoe School” students of Muhlenberg.  We are the non-traditional students, those who work, maintain hearth & home, raise kids, etc., etc. while attending night classes.  Some of the students who are graduating have been working on their degrees for 13 years or more!  I thought my measly 8 was long!  Ugh!  But we all persevered to the end.  Out of 35 graduates,  8 of us are Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society members.  Not too shabby if I say so myself.  A group photo was taken at the end of the dinner to go in the school’s newsletter.

Today started off with my regular check-up at the doc’s.  Have I mentioned I puffy heart my doctor?  He is truly fab.  All is well under the hood; oil pressure 100/64; weight 125; oil quality 190; and all other gears and pistons are firing at max capacity.  One cannot ask for a better start to the day.  Gold star!

Prayers are requested for the hubster who will undergo ankle surgery (again) only this time on the right ankle.  I did not know that “crappy” could be considered an official diagnosis for an ankle tendon, but there you have it.  Friday the 22nd is the big day.  Since it is the right ankle, there will be no self-motorizing in large 4-wheeled vehicles.  I will don my chauffeur’s cap to schlep the hubster to and fro.  I will let him borrow the pretend steering wheel so he can feel like he’s driving.  It will be an interesting 2 months.

I am off to tend to Friday chores that are normally done on Saturday.  With all the company coming in for the weekend, there will be great amounts of chatter and laughter and celebrating.  Pictures are promised as they come available.

By your prayers!
