Busy week getting busier

This has been a busy week and I have failed to keep up with the blogs and such. Sadly, it's about to get worse and then it all settles back down in a week or so to a sleepy end of fall/start of winter slumber. 

Yeah, sure.

The big news was that Riley ended up spending Wednesday night at Klub Kaiser with breathing issues again. With some aggressive medication and lots of attention by lots of people it was kept from being a serious situation and he went home Thursday morning. We had Darci stay the night with us, which went OK (for me - as usual Mrs Notthat ended up dealing with the night time issues). Darci and I made waffles in the morning (sadly, I couldn't find the blueberries so they were plain, if being soaked in syrup is still considered plain). 

Tomorrow morning we (Mrs Notthat, The Boy, WHM, and I) get on a plane for Baltimore. The poster up on top is what I made after going through lots and lots of pictures. Hopefully you can click it and see a bigger version of it.

Look at the pictures from 1942 and 1944. I feel really weird typing this, and I'm sure this is going to make Mrs Notthat and DAAAAUUUNNN squirm a bit, but their mother was hot! No wonder she ended up with three hot daughters (and maybe a hot son - I'm not going to try to go there Arkansas John).

The memorial service is on Monday and all of us except Mrs Notthat fly back on Tuesday (she flies back on Thursday). I get the honor of pretending to be Mrs Notthat on Wednesday and Thursday and will be wrangling the grandkids in her place. 

That's right - Pringles and cartoons will rule! Maybe waffles!

I hate flying and am not looking forward to this trip at all. It will be good to see everyone though, and the Cowboys will be in town to play the Redskins, so it will end up being worth it. (This will be my first flight without grandkids in a long time. No car seats, strollers, or massive diaper bags. In other words, it's going to be dull.)

Hopefully I will be able to provide reasonably regular trip updates. And score some bargain Redskin gear.

That's it - move along...

Great job on the poster ~ it's beautiful and yes, so was she. Have a good trip and your fans look forward to reading all about it when you return.
