Back at HBO

2nd day back at Hyperbaric therapy for Jack. Last night was the Christmas Lights Parade in Downtown Abilene. It was so much fun. For the first time my kids were in the parade, they have had opportunities in the past but it never sounded appealing to them before. Last night they bundled up and were a part of the Abilene Performing Arts Company Float. Jack sat on the float, looking like he was having a tooth pulled the whole time, Sophie walked with the "walkers", and Derek and I walked along side with the other parents. It was so much fun. I was so excited to see all the people waving. I am a waver at parades. If someone is going to be on a float waving at me, I am going to wave back. And the children who were watching the parade were as cute as could be. It was a fun experience - I bought some hand and feet warmers from the hunting section at the store yesterday to keep us all warm. They worked wonderfully and we all stayed toasty.



Back to work for me it is...

Ok, I'm confused and I can't find an email link to ask you about it. When you say back to work are you meaning working in a place outside your home? Did I miss something?

Sorry I confused you. I can take my "work" with me to the hospital on my laptop, which I took a break from by writing a blog post. Processing images...images...and more images....my photog. biz.

Even though Denise accused me of being a parade boycotter, this was the first we missed since we have lived in Abilene -- yes, Denise, I stood in the 40* drizzle the year that there were no bands, no cute kids, just VERY fast driving floats (and a few brave wavers). A migraine kept me home in bed and my children agreed that it would barely be the Christmas season without it. Sorry we missed it and glad you had a good time!

Ok, that's what I thought, but I was just making sure!

We looked and looked for you. I didn't see any one of you guys. Maybe it was because we were behind the rather large woman who kept screaming "get out of my way" or "sit down" to all the small children who crossed her path. If you head her, we were right behind her smiling and waving as best we could. Most memorable.

That last comment was from Jana. Sorry. I forget it puts Richard's name at the top.
