My apologies to Michigan and Tennessee

Kaitlyn tried to eat Michigan and Tennessee yesterday.

And she put several of the New England states in her ears.

I have no idea which states she put up her nose, but I know there were at least two casualties on that front.

Needless to say, the small foam United States puzzle has gone to the top shelf in the closet for a vacation, and we aren't sure when it will return.

Before all of these casualties occurred I did get a great video of her repeating the names of the states, so I'll have to post that when we finally get an internet connection at home.

Speaking of the glorious internet connection, it should be installed on Tuesday. Woohoo! I never realized just how much I use the internet until now. In some ways, it's been nice to have a vacation from it, but in many other ways, it's just plain annoying!

Also, my mom, Priscilla, is scheduled to have surgery on Tuesday morning. She will have a complete hysterectomy and a small part of her colon will be removed, and then she'll be in the hospital for 7-10 days for recovery.

After she recovers from the surgery she will have six rounds of chemo, and we are expecting that she'll kick cancer's butt. :-D If you think about it, please say a prayer for her on Tuesday!

On a good note, my sister is coming home from California for a week and a half! Yippee! I wish my mom didn't have to have surgery, but this is a very nice side effect.

I'm trying to quickly post this during my last few minutes in the office, so I'm going to sign off for now. I hope to be back on Monday for a Menu Plan Monday post, but I'm not sure that will happen since we have a lot happening in the office on Monday. At least I'll be able to post from home on Tuesday!

Have a great weekend!

On behalf of all Michiganders, apology accepted.

That is too funny. I can just imagine the little stinker doing that. =D

Saying a prayer for your mom that all will go well this coming week. And for you too, because I know you've had a lot of stress lately. Hope things settle down soon for you!
