It's a lazy morning here. I have an hour until I start work and I'm planning on using the majority of it to do nothing. Yesterday was a crazy day at work. It's tough working at a job I'm not thrilled about.
My twin sister is at the doctors office this morning. She's been having "girl" trouble for several months now and the doctor at the local hospital keeps blowing her off. It's really starting to aggravate me. He should be glad that I don't live close enough to go over and have a talk with him. She is at another doctor's office now and I'm waiting for a phone call from her to see what is going on.
Erin seems to be doing well on her new medication. I spoke with her teacher on Tuesday and she said that she had a really good day. I hope that it continues. We are in the middle of planning her 11th birthday. Planning a party can be so complicated when you don't have a house with a lawn. Everything here is so expensive. They know that most people don't have the room to throw a kids party and they take full advantage of it. One place is $270 just for the party room and some indoor jump houses. That doesn't include any of the food which you must purchase from them. And it's the same price if you have 5 kids or 25 kids. We settled on the local miniature golf/go cart place. It also has an arcade and bumper boats though I think it will be too cold for them to be running. The best part is that it's only $12.99 per child which includes 10 tokens, two slices of pizza, unlimited drink, and a round of miniature golf. And I only have to pay for the kids that show up. Given the fact that everyone here tends to be a little flaky, this is what sold me.
Speaking of parties, David's 30th birthday is just around the corner and I really want to plan something special. Any ideas?

Hey! Hope everything is ok with Brandy. OB/GYNs suck! On another note...did you get my email a while back? Just checking. --Jen

What did you find out about Brandy?

11 - oh, my, gosh!

The doctor wasn't able to see anything because there was too much blood. He gave her some medicine and made an appointment for next week.

Jen, I don't think I got the e-mail. It's possible that Erin checked it and didn't tell me so I'll take a look.

A, I can't believe it myself. 11! YIKES

saying a little prayer for Brandy as I write... she doesn't need more problems, especially health problems.

Yeah, I'm finding it more and more difficult to communicate with doctors. GRRRRR.

I'm not sure about the 30th birthday...I just started thinking about J's, trying to see if I should do something extra special--and his is in September! Ha-ha!

Thank you A.

Kristen, at least you started sooner than me. :)
