The days continue to blend together as time keeps marching on. I am feeling the older I get, the faster that my world keeps spinning from one day to the next.
This week has been an emotional week with some heavy stuff going on in our families. My Aunt Frances passed away (age 85). She was my mom's last surviving family member. I feel so bad for my mom right now. She started burying her own parents at the age of 17 and has seen each family member pass away since, including her husband, my wonderful father. Aunt Frances will be buried tomorrow, (Saturday). I will not be going to the funeral as it is too far away from Texas.
We also have an immediate family member diagnosed with cancer. (I cannot give details yet since he has asked us not to for now.) There is a treatment, but there is no cure. David and I am still trying to wrap our brains around this one. I despise the C word.
My good friend, another home school mom, is moving away. I have known for sometime and still have trouble dealing with mourning her move.
On the more joyous side...
Miss Sally had her first job interview. It is for a swim instructor assistant through the city. She did a great job and will know in the next week or two if she got it. It would be a sure foot in the door for her, especially since the city has broken ground for a new HUGE aquatics center...Olympic size. We are keeping our fingers crossed.
I was just sitting at the kitchen table jotting down our menu for the next week. I have come to LOVE LOVE LOVE our Sunday dinners.
This Sunday I want to do Brisket - we LOVE brisket! (Recipe here).
My sides will include::
David's World Famous Coleslaw (recipe here).
Dessert...always my favorite part ;)....is going to be Divine Mercy Ice Cream Sundaes (originally found at Catholic Icing). We are making this beautiful feast day part of our Living Liturgy this year.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and a blessed Sunday!
