  4. Too bad, I agree, nice shot. I love the platform that the water tower sits on. How do they keep the water from freezing in the winter?

  10. Girl, I am SO bummed that we weren't able to meet for dinner:/ The good news is that Rach has been pumped full of meds and is slowly mending. Poor thing crawled into bed with me late Monday night, bawling. I rubbed her back until she fell asleep. I'm glad I was able to be with her when she felt so cruddy. The good news is that we will have more opportunities to celebrate together...she'll be at FIT for a while:) ((hugs))

    Lots of people sick now, unfortunately.
    I hope she is better soon, and that you can reschedule some time in the near future.

    P.S. Mama Big Hair Envy?
