We are getting ready to go to Vanderbilt this morning for Hope's pre-op work and to meet with her surgeon. I'm not looking forward to it at all. To be honest, I have thoroughly enjoyed being silly with the kids the last several days. The kids and I have been spending alot of time in the house together since Hope is limited from outside activities and from being around heavily populated areas at the moment (Dr.'s orders), so planning nutty things for us to do together as a family has been fun! Meanwhile, unfortunately, "REALITY" has also been busy........busy preparing to force itself upon us.
