Our Lake Wobegon

It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon. Oh wait, nope. Wrong story.

Chuck and I have been in and out of the hospital this week (out patient) undergoing various tests and procedures. I had a physical a couple weeks ago and the doctor found a lump on my thyroid. So today I'm doing an iodine scan. I went in this morning and took the iodine pill (still not glowing green though) and I'll go back this afternoon for the scan. Hoping and praying that it's nothing. That the lump is benign. Don't even want to think about the other option.

Chucks... just routine 'over 50' stuff.

Diana and I took Beth to Athletics on Saturday. She had such a bad attitude! Beth acted like she didn't want us there. Kept hiding her face. Wouldn't participate. Everyone walked, jogged around the track and Beth... meandered. So Diana and I went and sat in the van. Thinking that would encourage her to work harder and she did! Her attitude changed and she began pushing herself.

So we got back out of the van. We wanted to cheer her on and watch her practice. She did okay after that. We tried to pretend like we were ignoring her and she tried to pretend like we weren't watching her. Ahhh, can you feel the love?!

Beth is taking part in the youth choir dinner theatre this weekend. It's to help raise money for their ministry trip to London in 2012. (Not sure if she's going yet.) Because she's just joined (and they've been working on this for months) she just has a small part, helping to gather tickets one of the nights. The show takes place in the 20's. Yep, the 20's. Have you ever tried to find a dress and hat from the 20's?! We found a hat and plan to go out again tonight or tomorrow for an outfit. It'll be interesting. But, she's so excited about it! And you know how it is, when your kids are happy, you're happy!

Well, that's all the news from our Lake Wobegon, where the men are strong, the women are good looking and the children... all have a little something extra!
