You know you've got a friend...


When they show up on your porch with all of these movies. Now why would this girl bring me so many movies? Because I'm stuck, yes stuck, at home until at least Monday. Yuck! A visit to my Dr. on Wednesday almost sent me to the hospital with pneumonia. We settled for a breathing treatment, a shot, 2 Z-packs (antibiotics), an inhaler, and a bottle of exactly what Maverick was taking, Prednisone. Strict orders to do nothing and to come back on Friday if I'm not alot better. So, not only are Jennifer and Ellen holding down the fort for extended periods of time (please note, Jennifer is allowed to close early so call if you're planning an evening trip to the store), Jennifer also makes house calls with tons of movies and oranges! Thanks Jen!


The Peddler, who is also sick, is really taking good care of me too. Trips to the grocery store, the video store, cooking, cleaning, and helping with DAM. We still have the Hospice people coming to the house, but she seems to be holding her own. I thought losing Maverick would be a set back but she says she was expecting it just like we all were.

So, you know how I keep the Beanie Baby of a mouse on top of the computer to remind me to laugh, I found this one today in a drawer. I always kept this one because it reminded me of Maverick! He's up there with the mouse now...so I can see him everyday.

Oh my goodness Kim. Sending tons of good wishes that you get better really soon. Mind the Doc as you certainly don't want to end up in the hospital. Enjoy the movies and rest and eat the oranges Jennifer brought you

Poor Kim I didn't know you were sick (I am a terrible friend) I hope you're doing better. And I will keep up the prayers for you and your fam (: Because I am me and my house attacks every once in a while I broke my toe and was house bound. I am up to driving again and will stop in and say 'hi'
