Dinner with a Piston

This week just flew by. Busy at work, some family stuff that came up, and so on...

Bad news of the week: Kurt's Grama is in the ICU in Bay City. I guess Kurt's cousin went over to her house to see her, and saw her slumped over in a chair in her living room. He thought she was sleeping, but when he knocked on the door and then window, she did not wake, so he used his key and went in, and could not wake her, and called 911. Apparently, she has pneumonia and a MAJOR infection. I am not good with medical terms, but I guess when you have diabetes (which she does), and you get a sore or something, you are supposed to contact the dr right away. She got one, and did not tell anyone. It has not spread and is really deep and huge. They ended up having to do minor surgery to drain and clean the area. As the norm, the drs are not really saying what the prognosis is or anything, so I have no idea on anything. She is 85 years old. Anyway, Kurt and i went to visit her on Thursday after work. It was a nice visit. She was really talkative, in good spirits and seemed really well (except the obvious). Update: Kurt talked to his Mom today who said his Grama is doing a lot better, so that's great!

Had dinner with Kurt's Mom after that since she lives near Bay City. Did not get home until 1150 PM last night, so we were zonked at work the next day.

Last night, we had dinner at Crave Lounge in Dearborn with my friend, Cassie, and her boyfriend, Ken. We have such a blast with them. They are both attys, so we enjoy exchanging "war" stories. They have a practice together as well. Anyway, guess who was sitting about 10 feet from me? Rip Hamilton! A star on the Detroit Pistons! How crazy is that? He has amazing taste in restaurants, haha. Anyway, the food was amazing, and we had an awesome time. It was nice to get out for the night. Kurt had three rum and cokes and he needed that as well.

Spent the day on Saturday doing laundry, dishes, cleaning, and watching The Gilmore Girls. I just finished up Season 3. Rory graduated from high school, and dudring her speech, I literally had tears pouring down my face. I was bawling. I can't believe I never watched this show before, I was totally missing out. Have to wait to watch more now until Wednesday when two more discs are delilvered. Sigh.

We worked all day today, which was not fun....ugh, but we got some stuff done that needed to be done. On the way home, it started SNOWING! AARGH! I cannot believe it was over 70 degrees less than one week ago, and today, SNOW. Anyway, none of it seems to be sticking, so that's good. But, it was almost blizzard like on the drive home. Crazy. I hate snow and cold weather, and all of the people out there who talk about wanting a white christmas, and loving the look of the winter season are NUTS. Which is prob why I enjoy leaving the country every December as my Xmas present to myself! :).

Speaking of which, only a little over a month until we leave for Galapagos, and I can't wait. We are doing a three hour tour of quito the day before our yacht leaves, which should give me some good pics as well! The city is really historic and beautiful (supposedly). I just called our dr to call in the patches for sea sickness, and there is not really much else to do in preparation for the trip. Yay!
