    Faye - DH made plans without telling me and I ended up at a bar 3 hours after he did because of the storm. I had a BLT with a side of oranges. I am lucky that my bartenders indulge my wishes for fresh fruit not potatoes.

    I agree. Sweet Rae will put the sunshine back in his heart and give him a more youthful step.

    And Faye - thanks. It has been a hard year. But you put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward. There are still tears being shed and I know more will come as we get closer to the holidays. I am lucky that Momma and I have gotten even closer than we were before. I try to make myself look for that silver lining in the clouds everyday. I consider myself blessed to have had the time I did with my Daddy. And I got blessed to have married a man just like Daddy.

    raesmom1612 - I am sure your visit will perk him up. After a week in the hospital, seeing sweet Rae will be just what he needs!

    ascherer - Sending you hugs as well....just because you have had a really rough year. What did you end up having for dinner?

    We ended up going to the high school football game and had sandwiches when we got home.

    Raesmom - you and your Dad are in my thoughts and prayers. Give him a kiss and hug for me.

    I agree. This blog is the best. Y'all have helped me through some of my worst times.

    Thanks ladies. He will be there this time for at least a week. They have no idea that we will be coming home so it will be a nice surprise for them all. Ive really been stressing over him the past few days (problem started last week) so pls keep him in your thoughts.

    This blog is the BEST!!!

    raesmom1612 - I am so sorry about your dad being in the hospital again. I hope he is back home soon.

    Raesmom-sorry to hear about your Dad!
    Friends coming over for supper and games..Tonight we are having chicken breasts stuffed with spinach, prosciutto, and gorgonzola cheese. Saffron infused jasmine rice. Roasted artichokes topped with parmesan and grilled asparagus and romaine lettuce. Blueberry and lemon cake for dessert.

    Y'all are so lucky to have friends and family so close (or at least just a few hours away instead of 13!!). We will be heading back up to NY again next week so trying to prepare for that this weekend, not too much cooking going on. Dad is in the hospital again (ugh) so I have to go yell....I mean check up on him. Maybe homemade pizza tonight for Rae and I........

    We were expecting company coming in from Tennessee but they had to cancel last night. I was going to prepare a crock pot of vegetable beef and barley soup for when they arrived tonight. Since I already had the meat thawed, I went ahead with the plan. We'll have plenty left over for the freezer!

    Something along I-95 in Virginia as we head to a soccer tournament in Williamsburg :)

    ascherer - that sounds like a good option to me as well! Or maybe baked ravioli. We'll see, It's still up in the air. Good luck on your dinner. lol
