Hey y'all. Still kinda boring around these parts. Been spending lots of time with the neighbors, since W is watching C, we normally end up having dinner at our house once I get home with Bubba. The past two nights, tho we went over there. Last nite, we hung out for a while, I had some drinks. General bullshitting followed, and it was fun to just hang....Bubba ran around like a madman with C and a bunch of the kids from the neighborhood and didn't go to bed until after ten. You'd think he'd have slept in, but of course not, he was up by 7:30. Crazy kid.

I'm at the radio station. No live shift this weekend, but I've taped my shift for tomorrow nite....the race is on now, and it's weird...they are in Montreal this week, and hearing NASCAR stuff in French is just odd. It's the Busch series, though, the Cup boys are in Pocono tomorrow, and most of my inlaws will all be there. A bit jealous, I am.

Oh yeah. My mom gave me Harry Potter on Sunday. I spent a few hours with it Sunday nite, enthralled. By Monday nite, blissfully child free because he slept over at Nanny's, I was itching to get back to it, but I promised W I'd at least wait until after dinner. I then proceeded to spend the next five hours, until about 12:45 finishing the book. I WANTED to put it down and not stay up so late, I WANTED to savor the book, read it slow. But, I just couldn't. I could NOT stop reading. No sense in another breakdown of the book, I'm just gonna say how much I loved it. Do I need to put a spoiler warning? Well, that's your warning.

Deep down, I KNEW Snape was pulling double duty at the behest of Dumbledore. I think my biggest shock was that she killed one of the twins. I knew Harry and Ginny and Ron and Hermione would end up together. Anyway. I loved it, can't wait for the time to REREAD it, and then movies. My god, the possibilities for this movie. I could go into deep analysis of this and that from the book, but... I don't do stuff like that, unless I HAD to when in college. My mind is too cluttered with trivia, song lyrics, shit like that to have enough cells left over for critical thinking. hahahah.

Anyway, in another burst of news, my nephew, A, had an artificial cornea surgery on Monday. By Tuesday, full sight had returned to his eye. My brother is absolutely over the moon, as are we. Thank you so much to all of you who added him to your prayers, because I fully believe we received a miracle, along with the help of medical technology. Had his doctor here not referred him to this surgeon in New York, he'd still not have vision. Luckily the doctor here knows that surgeon. Regardless, even with the wonderful surgeon's skill, it's still a miracle, and thanks again to all of you who kept him in your prayers.

We are moving forward with something with W's back. It's a trial run of a stimulator. Will basically block pain signals from the nerves to the brain, and theoretically he will not be in any more pain. NOT getting hopes up, because it doesn't work for everyone. I know we have Worker's Comp approval for it, we just don't have it scheduled yet. Fingers crossed all that jazzed, eh?

K, I gotta run to the little girls room, and then get lost in racing. Have a great weekend, y'all. Hope all is well with all of you and your familes. I'll try to post more often.
