Oh brother (or sister or nephew)...

Hi there...
I've been busier than I could have imagined since the hockey and basketball seasons have ended. The family is hanging in there as best they can. Terri is getting ready to have her FIFTH surgery since January when she had her double mastectomy. She is hoping this will help clear things up. Come to think of it, so am I.
I guess the one thing I've learned, is patience. I've learned to appreciate the small things more than ever before. Life is so precious. I don't take it for granted. I stopped over to see Terri for mother's day and of course I ate because when you go to Terri's, that's what you do. Anyway, it was pretty cool because after about an hour, Tony my nephew with his Amanda, and Alex with his Amanda and the little ones all showed up and we had an absolute blast. It was enjoyable to see them and we spent a few hours laughing with Tony getting ready to become a dad for the first time, I had to give him grief about giving up video games in exchange for diaper duty. I told him he'd never survive and when he'd reach to pull his hair out, there wouldn't be any there. He rolled his eyes at me and tried to act all tough and stuff. He started cracking little nuggets like "I can do what I want"... He was lying on the couch on Amanda's lap when he said that. Bad move on his part. Amanda is a woman who doesn't take any crap off of him and I thought she was going to strangle him on the spot. The rest of us were laughing at him and he just stuttered and finally gave up and just laughed himself... it was a good mother's day...
