"I BELIEVE IN PINK! I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."— Audrey Hepburn

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every night, friends. You have done what you could. Let it go.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sunday Sampler!

The Week in Reflection...and boy was it a busy one...and Kind of crazy too...

First of all, my siblings and I had an email chain going around between the three of us titled "crazy parents". My brother started it and my sister and I just kept it going as the updates came in.
You see my parents, ages 76 and 77 took off on a cross country vacation from WV to Yellowstone NP...not bad, you say? Well they did this on their bike, their Honda Goldwing...which they did have triked last year, but still...

There it is! Pretty, isn't it!?!

So anyway, periodically they would call and update one of us with their escapades and that one would send an email to the others...lol...
They had their 56th anniversary while they were away! At one point they bought a tarp to cover the seat for $5.00 from a homeless man and so I wondered if that was maybe the anniversary gift...lol.
And then there was the time that the engine just stopped dead in the middle of the highway with nothing but a couple of bushes around...and Mom had to go to the bathroom...and so...I think I'll stop there...
Oh, the engine?...dad had hit the kill switch by accident...
And of course there was the time that they saw smoke coming out from  under Mom's seat and it turned out to be a short in Mom's heated suit...It's cold out there on the road...
So it turns out that they made it home safe and sound! 
There are a lot more where those stories came from, believe me...lol

The work week was crazy busy. It seems that even in this economy people will find a way to pay for an IVF attempt...or two...
I was exhausted every night.
I do work for /in a very successful and busy center.

Just a sample of the little darlings that I work with...

I have also been very busy with my Breast cancer advocacy...It seems that it all heats up this time of year and I have had stuff to work on every evening and calls to be part of also.
I called a last minute meeting for Tuesday and to my delight most of my Survivor activity committee members were able to make it:)
We have a "Sweet" theme this year and we are about to have a blast with it!
Dinner with the ladies was a great time too:)
Later in the week ...
My DH brought this home for me!

I just LOVE that! It is so true...
Looks to be a great theme to me:)
I am so sure there is more to tell but I think I will wind on down now...Oh, someone said to me this week that I had better start retiring my uniform pants...they are way too big! So DH brought me home some smaller scrubs today:)
I also managed to squeeze in a hair and nails appointment:)
A whole new me!

Anyway...enough said...
