been a horrible blogger! Guess I've either had nothing
to write about... or I've been so busy I haven't had time
to write.... or I've been farming on Facebook way too
much. Last night we had a Braces Off Day surprise party
for Teresa at MaryLou's and it was a complete success!
I went over to Teresa's after work as we planned to hang
out, and I had to ponder a way to get her over to Lou's,
but not until 6:00 so everyone would be sure to get there
before her. Sometimes
Teresa can be open to suggestion, and other times she'll
be focused on fitting more activities into a day or night
than we can possibly get done. Lucky for me she was distracted
by her new blender which she wanted to create smoothies
with! ...She was pretty easy to delay until 6, and then
we ran out and got in the car, but she forgot her retainer
case and ran back in giving me a good opportunity to call
and tell everyone we were on our way. When we got to Lou's
everyone had parked around the corner, the curtains were
drawn, and it didn't seem like much was going on.... Teresa
showed off her teeth to MaryLou who came out on the porch
to greet us, and then she led us inside.... nobody was
in the living room ....and
then we turned the corner into the dining room where everyone
was. They started singing Happy Birthday only with "Braces
off" in exchange for "Birth".... and at
first Teresa seemed a bit confused by it all wondering
just what was going on, and then she was blown away that
we'd arranged and pulled it off. She got to enjoy many
of the things she couldn't eat the last year and a half
and then we mostly sat around and chatted. What a great

night, we went back over to Lou's for a small game night
and to finish up our leftover Thai. MaryLou's sister Sue
is visiting from Richmond and we always like to have some
sort of game night while she's here. We played Bananas,
which I don't really like- I've never won.
was pretty dead today, I think many opted for long Labor
Day weekends, Jesse included. I'm happy to have the three
days off... I bet Tuesday will be pretty slow too.

went to the KC zoo today... I'd never been before....
wow, there's a lot of walking in that there zoo-going!
They had a lot of spacious habitats for the animals though,
and that's worth walking around I guess. There were a
few areas of the zoo I thought were very run down. We
found one entire abandoned section that seemed so erie!
