What's Happening This Week - July 23rd

Hello America, how are you?

This week will hold some special moments, I guarantee!

First off, baring any unforeseen medical concerns, Joe has no doctor appointments, procedures, or treatments scheduled this week. Praise the Lord!

Then, on Friday, July 27th, Erin and Josh tie the knot.  All of us who know this awesome couple are really happy to share in their joy. Congratulations!

Which brings me to the next part of this week's calendar:  Joe will be in Rhode Island attending the matrimonial event taking place on the Narragansett Sound.  A beach house has been rented. Erin and Josh, along with Joe, (and a bunch of cool friends) will be celebrating big time. Joe will be chilling in Middlebury for the early part of the week, then heading to RI mid-week. Joe's sister, Lis will be joining him late Thursday evening.

Talking about special moments to come, reminds me of the special moments we enjoyed yesterday afternoon at Michael (aka, Dad) and Denise's (aka, Step-Mom) home in Watertown. An impromptu gathering with family and good friends, (along with some fantastic food...) was the perfect way to wrap up the weekend.  Many thanks to Denise's family who were so kind and generous.  Aunt Lisa, (Dog Aficionado, Dog Expert, and Dog Whisperer) helped with Miss Mia. (It was great having help with the new pup!)  Mia, aka, "The Princess" held court.  Joe and Lis's cousins did a fantastic job of keeping Miss Mia out of trouble, too.

Thank you for the cards, thoughtful prayers, special meals, treats, and good vibes for all of us. Cancer can be lonely and scary to say the very least.  It REALLY helps to feel the love and support from everyone. It's also very wonderful to hear what's happening in your lives. We are connected. All those texts, emails, and vms are appreciated. 

Thank you.

Some friends have mentioned to me that they would like to post a comment, but are having a wee bit of trouble.  Please sign up for a free Google/G-Mail account.  It's easy to do and then you can post comments whenever you like. We read them and love hearing from you.

Love to all,
