This and that heard at the airport

Wow what a day. This morning I head f. Fawcett passed and now while waiting at the airport I hear Michael Jackson died. What was amazing is that the entire airport was buzzing with people talking about ja ckson dying. Mobil websites were down and even blogger locked up. I haven't seen people interacting like this since that day in September 8 years ago.
RIP to both as they did have a effect on our (pop) culture no matter if you feel that was positive or negative.

Looks like my plane will be delayed - 30min to take of and no plane in sight. So i guess it will be a long night. But at least I get to go home. The weekend will be busy getting ready for our visitors that are arriving next weekend. I will be in Philly on Monday and then DC on Thursday for work. I will just stay in DC till Saturday as it doesn't make much sense to go home for a day and then drive back.

Just another weekend

It's kind of weird to have the house to myself for the weekend. Grumpy went fishing with some friends of his for his birthday so its just me and the pets. I played in the pool then went to the gym (i know its was silly should have played in the pool after the gym) then went by the German Restaurant to check with the cook. Her Granddaughters are graduating tomorrow so she had asked if I could cook for her. It has been like 9 years since I worked in their kitchen full time. I had helped out a couple of weeks ago when their kitchen help was out but the cook was there so tonight should be interesting. I don't worry about the night part but the prep work stuff. Since I don't want the food to taste any different. After stopping at the German place I went by the Italian restaurant that I used to work at. Saw the owners new baby and hung out for a while as I waited for my bruschetta. Its always fun to hang out there and I miss working there but I just dont have the time anymore. He did ask if I would help out if people are on vacation which i said I would if i was in town. Speaking of being in town it was nice to just be gone one night this week. I am gone 2 nights next week and then all week the following week. I am so glad things will slow down once June is over.

I can't wait for July when my friends from Germany are coming while it will be interesting trying to fit 8 people in my little house - plus 2 big dogs.

So if you saw the twitter/facebook update yesterday you know that the meds are not working so all that money pretty much went down the drain never mind the black and blue belly from all the injections. Now they are talking about drilling my overies and while they are in there they are using a camera to look around and also flush out the tubes again to make sure they are open. I have to say I am pretty nervous I have never been hospitalized never mind had ansestishia. Besides even the doctor even said she didn't know if this would help me since I haven't reacted normal to any of the treatments. I mean I only had 2 cycles on this latest medication and I am already resistant to it. I wish someone would explained to me why all those people that don't want/shouldn't have kids can and there are so many that want to have kids/would make good parents aren't able to. Guess its fair to say the universe has a cruel sense of humor.

I am such a baby - licking my wounds right now. I had a fun afternoon tubing. See I have to do water safety meetings for the au pairs and find they are more fun at the beach with water sport activity. The tubing part was awesome everyone had fun. Since I am not a light person I couldn't back on the pier since it was still low tide and there was no ladder - so I decided to walk up the boats ramp. I knew it was slippery but figured if I hold onto the pier I'd be okay - Yeah not really. I got halfway up when I slipped and slid down the ramp - barnacles and all. So I get up with cuts on my arm, leg and feet and now had to walk 500yards to the beach - thank goodness we were at a private beach. By the time I get out of the water my arm and leg had blood running down. And once I left the water my feet were bloody too. None of the cuts are very deep but they still hurt. Especially on the feet and its not like I can stop walking on them :(. So I will be misserable tomorrow as I have to fly to Pittsburg to get to Wheeling, WV for a site visit on Monday. But everyone had fun. We are babysitting Grumpy's niece again and she had a blast she even tried waterskiing but as you can see that did not go well. In all fairness the boat was to small and did not have enough speed to get her up. She did love tubing so and just playing in the water I finally got her out after 6pm.

Great weekend

Grumpy and I had a wonderful weekend in the Outer Banks. We stayed at the KOA campground on Cape Hatteras. The weather was perfect it was sunny but windy enough to where you could be outside. We took a nice walk on the beach. Mac was fine until some wave snuck up on herIt was funny everyone stopped to look at the pups - see the weather was nice so we had them on their leashes attached to the picnic table - I guess people just never see Great Danes. Saturday night we walked over to the sound site to watch a beautiful sunset. It was so great to just sit there and watch the sun go down.

All in all the weekend was very relaxing I can't wait to go down there again in July when my friends from Germany are in town.

So far my week wasn't to bad either Sunday night I got an email from where I was to be Monday stating they had to cancel the visit so I got a day at home to catch up on reports and stuff. Today I had doctor appointments - things look good this cycle and they added another injection - this one in the AM - got to go back Friday. Tomorrow its off to Ohio State University but its a short trip I will be back Thursday night.
