Hit reply before I finished. Dinner last night was chicken with artichokes and mushrooms in a lemony sauce, garlic mashed potatoes, salad, rolls, baked Ziti and cookies for dessert.

Dinner tonight will be a tortilla casserole, going to Costco to get a rotisserie chicken to make it with.

I wanted to post this...I received it as an email yesterday and I loved it.
***************

Recently I overheard a Father and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure..

Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the Father said, 'I love you, and I wish you enough.'

The daughter replied, 'Dad, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Dad.'

They kissed and the daughter left. The Father walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking, 'Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?'

'Yes, I have,' I replied.. 'Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?'.

'I am old, and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is - the next trip back will be for my funeral,' he said.

'When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enough.' May I ask what that means?'

He began to smile. 'That's a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone..' He paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail, and he smiled even more. 'When we said, 'I wish you enough,' we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them.' Then turning toward me, he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory.

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting..
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good- bye.

He then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them; but then an entire life to forget them.

* Only if you wish send this to the people you will never forget and remember to send it back to the person who sent it to you. If you don't send it to anyone it may mean that you are in such a hurry that you have forgotten your friends.

TAKE TIME TO LIVE....

To all my friends and loved ones, I WISH YOU ENOUGH.

Thanks for the lemon chicken recipe, it sounds like something I would love.

EJ- have fun picking him up, do you have a long drive?

Maria- I'm glad they didn't do any invasive testing yet, it seems like other things could be done first. At least you can blame your eating on stress, I just figure if I've all ready eaten something not so great for me, why stop there. I just love food.

Laura- We just had macaroni and cheese last night, and I really try to limit how often I make it, but if I'm feeling brave I might try the velveeta. It's the same recipe my gram and mom make so I've never had it any other way.

Nancy- That casserole looks really good, if I don't use the word bulgar I bet the other two would eat it.

So am I the only northerner lucky enough to have termites swarm?

I totally agree with you about Glynis...I think she has that Linda Carter costume under her everyday clothes!!!

If I served Ron bulgar casserole, I think he would just sit at the table waiting for the "real food" to come out! At least your guy will eat theat stuff.

Laura, you are the other Wonder Mom on this thread. It amazes me how much you have your kids involved in and what a good job you do while Greg is away. I think your childrens age can be hard than a newborn...you make me exhausted!

Sorry, your DH is having a hard time in Boston. I am sure he wishes he was with you while he is waiting on news regarding his DM. My prayers are still coming for health to you all. Please do not stress about your weight right now. I am a stress eater too and you have had more than your share of stress. Worry about that after everyone is well. We are all here to support you during your stress. I would tell you my weight if it made you feel better, and it is not even baby weight. I am going to focus after Emma is born to lose a little.

Hug Matthew tight...I am so happy you are going to have your boy back home. Continued prayers for Jay.

Ok, where did my post disappear to from this morning...how does that happen!!

DS & I are feeling much better and are well rested today. My poor DH is the one suffering now with a sinus cold. He is working both jobs today but is leaving his night job early to try to get some needed rest.

Today, I am heading to Target for a new iron, ours broke yesterday. I don't believe in ironing personally but my DH irons daily. Then we are going to my parents for dinner.

Please keep my DM in all your prayers. They found a lump on her thyroid and she is waiting for the Dr. to call and schedule a biopsy. I will keep you all posted as I hear.

It was a catered dinner but I have been thinking about trying to remake it. I'll let you know if it works out.

No worries Nancy. I am technologically challenged myself. When I get a new phone I usually ask one of the therapists to help me set it up and teach me how to use it.

But thank you for the mental image of Buddy's ring tone and him darting around trying to find it.

Ok, now that just cracked me up!

Here are pictures from last night. Since John nixed the margaritas, I made sangria. It was very fruity and light, and we have lots left for the rest of the week too!

That looks wonderful! It's been so hot here I'd love to have a glass right now.

You are all in my prayers Maria. And I'm with you on the stress eating. I've gone through quite a few bags of potato chips since Dad's diagnosis. All of which have gone right to my hips.

He is all packed except for his refrigerator, microwave and printer that we will take in the pickup.


Thanks for the well wishes for Jay. I really appreciate them. If you would please keep my little family in your thoughts, that would be great. This is his 2nd tour to Iraq - he is to be gone maybe 18 months.
Enjoy your baby coming home! And I will remember your family in my prayers as well.

That sounds delicious and I would make that tonight but no one in my house likes lemon but me.

Ann, that ironing this is so me. I don't touch ours and I'm not sure where Kenny keeps it.

I will add your family to my prayers as well.

Lauren - Enjoy your day. That sounds fabulous! And you certainly deserve it.

Sheryl - Enjoy your afternoon off. I know you love your little princess, but it must be nice to have a quiet afternoon every once in a while.

Tonight's dinner is one I haven't made in a while - Lauren's basalmic chicken (a/k/a Tom's home chicken). And it provided an added bonus. When I ran into the store for the basalmic this morning the clerk didn't look at the label, just the bottle and then asked me for my ID! Funny how the older I get the happier that makes me.

Maria- the only thing wrong with my phone is the user.....I am totally inept!

Ellen- I did not see that Jay was in Iraq. It is so hard on those left behind, I don't know how spouses and parents do it. Your family will be there for meals, and all of you will feel better.
I am so excited for you! Enjoy your mini family reunion and homecoming! As for the bulgar wheat, Buddy does not know what it is or that it is in the casserole. I just put it out, he makes a face, grabs the ketchup and Worcestershire and drowns it. His Mom never made casseroles or stews so he thinks they are not real food. Along with Mexican and Chinese. And anything else that is not meat and potatoes.

Lauren- I love that email!

Ann- it sounds as though you and DS are on the mend...now just to get your DH better

Your Mom is in my prayers.

Lauren, thanks so much for ruining my makeup. The tears are just running down my checks. Only kidding about my makeup - that was beautiful. And a gentle reminder we all need once in awhile.

Nancy, your Buddy just makes me laugh. I love your stories. Life at your house must never be boring. Jay hasn't left yet, but will on Tuesday. He will leave for Fort Stewart in Ga and will deploy for Iraq from there. The longer he is stateside the better. Thanks for your prayers.

Ann, Prayers for your Mom. Please let us know how things are.

Glynis I have to agree with everyone else. I loved staying home with my kids. Something I still miss to this day.

I don't remember who asked but Matthew's college is just an hour away so we should be there in time for dinner. I know that isn't very far away, and we were able to see him weekly, but there is just something that makes me sleep better knowing we are all under one roof.

Here is the boy now:

He didn't hear me tell him where the landscape lights were & that just set us both off fussing about it.

Will do!


I am working late so dinner will be whatever I find. I'm feeling a little better but just completely dragging. There is a lot of "activity" here at work right now and I think my mind is just processing things. Tomorrow is my iron infusion so I should feel better in a week or two. I hope!

Poor Bob it's usually the other way around, I'm more of a night person, so while he's trying to fall asleep, I feel the need to have these "discussions". I guess it was time for him to turn the tables on me & get me before my coffee! I had a rough time sleeping & was already somewhat awake, I won't do that again, normally I just don't speak in the morning!

Nan, Alexis took over Angelina's room, so no storage spot there! The other bedroom is As you can see I haven't left the house! Had to supervise the landscaping help. I'm going get my pedi as soon as I finish here.

What kind of phone did you get? I'm still not great at using my IPhone. The aide Dawn just got one & she was asking what new things I learned on it. Well I was trying to redial to vote over & over for Chris on AI last night & SHE ended up having to help me! It's so sad!

Hope that's an easy dentist visit! I'll have to look in the sushi dept at WF's they might have it, but I can tell you none of our other grocery store will carry it. You've made me jealous of your markets again.

Your dinner looks delicious as always! Did you make the pastry dough for the empanadas or used a store product? Pie dough, pizza dough??? Becky You never fail to continually impress with your dinners! John was right to nix the margaritas last night, luckily I only made us each one, cus they were strong & we sipped for 2 hours.

You don't sound like a Hallmark card at all! We get it!

Oh ladies I am so excited - today is the day!! We go and pick Matthew up from college. I am so darn excited I couldn't sleep last night. We have really missed him. There is a picnic at 5, then an awards ceremony at 6:30. He texted me last night and said as SOON as it is over he wanted to leave. He is all packed except for his refrigerator, microwave and printer that we will take in the pickup.

So as far as dinner tonight, it will be picnic fare at the College. Yipee I don't have to cook tonight.

Thanks for the well wishes for Jay. I really appreciate them. If you would please keep my little family in your thoughts, that would be great. This is his 2nd tour to Iraq - he is to be gone maybe 18 months.

Sheryl ~ Termites OMG I have never ever heard of these. We spray for them in our homes if needed but we NEVER see them. I can't imagine seeing them swarm. I hope your and Bob's day gets better. Doug and I rarely speak for the first hour we are up. I guess after 31 years of marriage we have learned a few things. :lmao
That is a happy day! I was thrilled to have Angelina back home for a few months before she went off & got married! Even with the wedding planning it was our bests times together! She was only 1 1/2 away too, but at first it killed me...

You know we haven't always had termites swarming. I think it's the Formosan termite that invaded here years back.

Nanatization at it's best!!! Laura, you are the other Wonder Mom on this thread. It amazes me how much you have your kids involved in and what a good job you do while Greg is away. I think your childrens age can be hard than a newborn...you make me exhausted!
Ok, where did my post disappear to from this morning...how does that happen!!

DS & I are feeling much better and are well rested today. My poor DH is the one suffering now with a sinus cold. He is working both jobs today but is leaving his night job early to try to get some needed rest.


Please keep my DM in all your prayers. They found a lump on her thyroid and she is waiting for the Dr. to call and schedule a biopsy. I will keep you all posted as I hear.
I'm glad you two are feeling better. Sorry your DH is down, hope he gets some rest! Prayers for your Mom that it wont' be anything!

Gosh so many of our WFD girls are having a rough time of it!

Glynis in a Wonder Woman Costume!

I agree Laura is another Wonder Woman! Amazing how she keeps it all together.
But you know what, we have quite a few Wonder Moms & Wonder Women in our fine group here! We all have our trials, tribulations and still manage to get through, Thankfully because we have each other!!! Oh now I'm all teary!


Aimee, He looks so good! Someone is sure to want him.

Lauren, So sorry about your hairstylist !

Oh I came back to say WFD! DH came home for lunch ( help with supervising the help! ) but he brought home a little tiny bowl of she-crab soup from a friend. It's only one serving but it's loaded with crab, so I'm going to cook some halibut & top it with the soup. Avocado, tomato, vidalia onion salad on the side. and wine we will have good wine tonight!

Sheryl, you guys are just as important as family...you guys are like my therapy. all of us here on the wfd have been through so much together. i really appreciate everyone understanding how busy i am now.

Glynis...how the heck do you do it? i cant get done around here!

Ann, hope your little one had a peaceful night and you all got some sleep.

hopa everyone is good today...I wish you all enough!
I must really have you all fooled! There are days when nothing gets done. It does help that Katie is old enough to help out around the house, and that the other kids can do their own homework and jobs. Seriously, though, it's tough! We had to cut down on extracurricular activities in order to make it work. Strangely, we don't miss any of those activities, and get to spend more time together as a family!
