Just a little update!! We are finally here in Tuscola, Illinois at my dad and mother's home!! We have been in our old home town of Bloomington staying with friends and visiting with old friends. We have been catching up on their kids and grandkids and finding out how they are getting older just like we are!! ((smile)) We all decided that once you hit 50 ...well it is down hill from then on as far as our bodies go!!! Things just fall apart from then on!! It is so much fun to renew old friendships!!

I have new problems. My left eye is all red and watering. I can hardly see out of it most of the time and my left ear is so sore and has been aching!! Sometimes my throat has been hurting also. I think that allergies are just doing me in!! What fun!! About time for me to go home!!

We have had a good time seeing everyone!! I am SO LOOKING forward to Saturday though. To finally see my three kids together for the first time in 8 years!! A mother's dream!!! I know that we are only going to have a few hours together!! Pictures pictures and more pictures!!

Take care ya'll!! Love ya!!

I can just feel the excitment of having all your children together! I can't wait to see photos and read all about it

I'm so glad to hear you've been having such a wonderful time visiting and oh yes, it certainly will be a very special moment when you're together with your 3 children at the same time:-) xox

Oh, I knOw you ARE excited about Saturday! I can't even IMAGINE my kids letting 8 years go between visits... but I know these things DO happen as families get older and go separate ways! It's been that long (plus some) since I've seen some of my brothers and sisters! But at this point in time, I just can't imagine MY kids doing that! But you will SURELY enjoy having them all together in one place and the reminiscing that is going to go on!!! Oh, remember when?!

I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well though -- you're in my prayers! I hope it gets better!

We need to be praying for a quick healing for you before Saturday. Consider it done from the South...so glad you are enjoying your visit despite a few set-backs.

My seasonal allergies pretty much made me feel ripped apart for a good two or three months. I finally got some relief as of a couple weeks now. Hope yours will be over with sooner.

Have a great reunion with your kids:)

Hi Sandy

How lovely to have a reunion with your family. You would have lots to catch up on.

Allergies...yuk! You have my sympathy because I know what it's like. Get yourself some antihistamines and take them until your system is used to the changes in the weather.

many happy photos I am sure.

see you when you get home and look after your eye too.
