I Certainly Didn't Expect It

Okay, my family is telling me it's time to update the blog. I know it's been a while. There has been so much happen in the last couple of weeks. Good things, but a lot of them.

The thing that started it all was me turning 50. I was at work when my dad walked into the office! My dad!! Drove up from San Diego to surprise me! Oh my gosh it was SO good to see him!!

I get home from work and all the blinds are closed. I asked why and Sharaya said it was to keep the house cooler. Yea, uh huh. I knew Chuck had invited over a few friends so I figured there were some I didn't know about and he wanted to keep it a secret. We're all standing around in the kitchen when there's a knock at the door. Everyone looks at me. I took that to mean they wanted me to answer it. My perception sometimes is astonishing! :)

I open the door and all I see is a large bunch of balloons. How fun! I see legs behind it but don't know who it is. Then they lowered the balloons. 



My two sisters, Kathy and Debbie also drove up from San Diego to surprise me! I was stunned! I've missed them so much and to think they would go though all that just for me, it was amazing. Chuck planned a great evening! He and everyone there made me feel very special.




It's a night I will remember forever!
