New Business!

Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted since the end of August.  We've been extremely busy.  We took a cruise from Sept 26th to Oct 3rd from Boston to Montreal. We stopped every day, except one, at a different port along the way.  It was a great trip.  Very relaxing.  We saw a lot of things and met very nice people.

These two pictures were taken in Bar Harbor, Maine.  We had lunch at Jordan's Pond and then sat a while to enjoy the view.  It was a gorgeous day!

She did some painting!  Got a little on her and the table but it washed right off!!
She didn't want Mommy to brush her tangles out of her hair but it was necessary!  They are hoping her Grandfather Parello (Papi) will trim it today!!

Eye Surgery!

Had eye surgery yesterday at 8:00 am for a cataract in the left eye.  It is amazing how it is done.  It was quick and painless.  Had to wear a patch until 11:30 am. and didn't have to put another one on.  No bending from the waist and no lifting more than 10 lbs.
Went for my post op exam this morning and they are pleased at how well I'm doing.   I could actually fully read the third line of the eye chart.  Two weeks ago, I couldn't read the top line.  Of course, I was very nervous and I think all the nurses and doctors are used to that.  They were very kind and caring and made sure that I was comfortable.  I still have to do drops for a month and no bending or lifting for 2 weeks.

Lena Visits Cousins!

My brother's son and family were visiting Washington, DC in a motorhome.  They were in a park near DC.  Alison, Scott and Lena got to visit them one evening at the park.  They ate right at the park and then got to swim in the pool. Lena and Josiah got along good.  She was obsessed with the oldest girl (Arabella).  They all had fun!

These are Luminary bags that Erin's friend, Alice, decorated for the Relay for Life Walk this weekend at D-Y High School.  They are in memory of my mother, mother-in-law, and sisters, Carleen, and Karen.  Alice, you say you aren't an artist but you sure did a beautiful job.  Thank you.  The Luminaries will be lit this Saturday at 8:30pm.
