Whatcha Up To Kaaren?

It's been a busy month, but not so much that I thought it was exciting to post. But here goes anyway.

We drove up in May to Lookout Mountain, Georgia for my father-in-law's retirement party.  He worked 22 years at the same church as a music minister and we drove up to celebrate with him.

They had an entire evening service dedicated just to him and my mother-in-law, with a reception afterwards.

David joins the choir to sing along to his father's last conducting of the choir.

Looking at a slideshow of pictures

It was a quick (tiring) up & down trip for us.

The VERY next day after arriving home, I greeted  a new Seattle trainee who was sent to me for further training.  Tuesday through Friday was spent training a lovely lady.

We took her to Universal Orlando and ate at The Hard Rock there one night.

Dude.  I left work and we went straight here, looking like poo.

Isabel was chosen as one of two "Young Authors" for her class and we went to a presentation at her school for it.

On the last day of May, with a fever, cough and sore throat, I headed off to work because it was the LAST DAY OF THE MONTH.  That's "Go time" at my work and I could not call in sick, especially with my boss in Charlotte. So I'm there, working and hacking up a lung and I hear a knock on my door.   My big sister Brenda drove up from West Palm to spend the weekend and surprised me at work.

UGH. I am always taking horrible pictures!

She had been lamenting not having gone to any backyard cookouts for Memorial Day, so we had a belated Memorial Day feast.
Oh. THIS one's better, right? 

"Oh my ribs!"

Just us gals went to church on Sunday and Brenda then treated us to breakfast at IHOP. The boys did not go because "you snooze, you lose."  We went shopping afterwards (she found 3 jeans at Ross.  Color her excited) and then she drove home.

I've been sick for like 5 days now.  I did go to the doctor's office. Not strep, just a viral infection.  Blah.  Hoping I get better soon.

And that's what we've been up to.
