I have all the energy and gumption of a drunken gnat with a hang-over so this'll be a short and sweet un.

My sister, Paula, slept over last night and we stayed up until after 4 a.m. talking. Then we were awake again by 7:30 so it's been a long day (even though I slipped in a 3 hour nap this afternoon). She left around 10:30, then I had to go buy the groceries for tomorrow's Easter dinner.

Paula was in town to go see my nephew Jacob (who's the son of youngest sister, Terri), along with the band he's in, Monoxide Project, as they participated in the "Battle of the Bands" over across the river at the Isle of Capri casino. They won 1st place, GO Monoxide! Jacob wrote the song, "Burnt Out Cowboy", ya'll have a listen to it at the site.

Hope your weekend is a fine one!

Happy Easter!

Don't fall asleep at the table. Or at least, try not to.

It was so good to get to visit with you for what time we got to visit. I am so worried about you. When you go to Trisha's this week, Terri has those berry blend caps. Make sure she takes you by to get them. You need to take them for your heart and circulation. When you run out let me know and I'll get you somemore. You and James both need to be taking them. I love you and don't want to loose you. Please take care of yourself.

I wish we could have spent more time together. Thanks, for letting me crash at your house and giving me a shoulder to cry on. You are my blessed big sis.

Love you
