I think he know I would be disappointed in him if he did anything less. You don't stand by when someone needs your help.

Poo was about six at the time and when he was allowed to visit me, he wanted to see me swing on it like they do at the circus. One shouldn't laugh that hard with a gut full of sutures.

Wow, I wish I had known about that when I had my three open abdominal surgeries. I just rolled over onto my side and pushed myself up with the bedside table, which wasn't easy. I'll remember that if I ever have another one.

My DH was up and gone to work before I got up He was still teaching then and was usually at school by 6:30 am.

Just finished cleaning up after a party last night. We celebrated our son's visit and marriage. Lots of empty bottles this morning.

No place for a trapeze I may also need steps up to the bed, we have an underdresser so it is quite high.

I had a $10 gift certificate and was wondering what to get, realized I would need one and I couldn't steal Shrek's.
