So you had a bad day...

American Idol's theme song...I think all of America had a bad day when they failed to vote for Chris this week. What were you all thinking??? I cannot believe Elliott and Taylor are still standing on that stage and Chris is gone. There is no doubt in my mind that he will have a good career. The boy can blow, dog!! I want to boycott the rest of the year, but won't, as Kat is still standing.

I was greeted yesterday afternoon by a large beautiful basket of flowers on my kitchen counter when I came home from work. Ryan and Natascha had sent them as an early Mother's Day gift and a "get well soon" gift. So nice and thoughtful, you guys, thanks!! Ryan is still in Kuwait and Natascha is at home in Germany, missing him. They were thinking about sending his troop back to Germany, but so far doesn't look like that is going to happen anytime soon.

Sam is in Iraq, and his wife, Jessie, is in Wyoming. He has leave in June, so will get to go home for a couple of weeks. We wish we could get out there to see him, but just can't right now. Both boys have laptops with them, so we do hear from them from time to time.

Brittany is still in Wyoming, working at Dairy Queen and Wal-Mart. She may come out to start school here in the fall, but still hasn't made up her mind completely. We keep hoping she does.

Kevin is enjoying Western Culinary Institute. It is alot of hard work, but so far he is doing great, making friends and getting used to living in Portland.

Shilo is ready for school to be out this year. She doesn't want to play this silly game anymore this year. I've told her that it is way to early for her to get senioritis, as she is just finishing up her sophomore year. Focus, focus, focus....

Dustin is grounded this week. I was throwing out some garbage yesterday evening and right on top of the trash in the outside can was an envelope addressed to "The Parents of Dustin Niziolek". I dug around a little bit and found a detention note from a few days ago. He said "Damn it" in reading. He's mostly in trouble for throwing the slip away and not fessing up to his discrepancy. Bad Boy!!

Surgery tomorrow. Oh, well. It'll all be over and done before I know it.

May you all be blessed with healthy, working gallbladders....
