Updating My Life

Nothing earth-shattering has been happening around here, but here are some updates:

--I am getting to know my new kitchen range and I have to say, 'I love it!' Now, don't get me wrong, just because I have a new appliance doesn't make me feel as if I actually have to cook EVERY day, but I have used it enough to be well pleased with it. I still am awestruck with the amount of room I have in the ovens/s. I just may have to do some Christmas baking this year! HA, HA, HA, HA, HA!!!!!!!!! I just made a joke! :)

--The Nephew has now finished up his third week with us and it is going well. I THINK we are getting a little more comfortable with each other. He is very quiet and spends most of his time in his room, which is okay with me. I would be just as fine if he wanted to spend time with me/us downstairs, but it is his choice. (He has mentioned to his grandmother--K's sister--that he can't wait to watch hockey on the new TV!) He is easy to please--it hasn't been hard to cook meals and I really don't have to do anything else for him. (Actually, I don't even have to cook for him--he just eats with us if he wants to whenever I DO cook.) With all that said, it still will be nice to have the house to ourselves again after he leaves.

--C is 23 weeks pregnant and seems to be doing well. She is making all the arrangements she can in case of being put on bed rest or if the baby comes early. As she said, why wait till the last minute--her track record ain't that good. Anyway, she only has four more weeks till she reaches the stage where--historically--things start going wrong for her. All we can do is wait and pray for everything to go well.

--A is looking into what her options are for seeing a new doctor because of her infertility. She is trying to accept that she will probably never get pregnant without a doctor's help (if at all), but I think she is fooling herself. I KNOW she is just saying it to try and convince herself. Hopefully, whoever she sees next will be able to give her some hope--we'll have to see.

--One of A's dogs--the female--is now taking DES (synthetic estrogen) for an incontinence problem. They FINALLY figured out her accidents in the house were NOT behavior-related but an actual physical thing. This, of course, will be a life-long thing for the dog. But, an ill animal sure couldn't have a better owner than A--she is going to take care of that dog till she dies of old age!

--Our travel and hotel arrangements for Vegas have been finalized. We will be leaving here on the 16th of October and will be back on the 19th. We have tickets to see Elton John on Thursday and are trying to make up our minds about whether we want to see Cirque Du Soleil, or not. While it isn't my thing, K wants to see Cirque, so I'll go along with it. Who knows, I just might enjoy myself.

--To make our lives just a touch exciting, K got a letter yesterday informing him that he is on jury duty. For the month of October! Now, he can get a trial on the 1st and be done with it that same day, or he can be put off every day until the 15th--and then get a week long trial! Obviously, he has to try and get his jury duty changed to another month. While I don't think it will be much of a problem, I HOPE it gets resolved quickly. We don't need this to have to worry about.

--K is on long weekend now and I'm hoping the weather will be nice enough so that we can go up north to see the colors. The Nephew said the leaves are changing rapidly, so this might be our only chance. K mentioned going tomorrow, but it is supposed to be cool/cold and windy, so that isn't an option. I want to be able to stand outside and take pictures and I won't want to do so if it is too cold. Monday might be a good option.
