cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Update (posted by Ann)

Well, let's see.

Don is much better today, he had a shower which always makes you feel better and he's up in his office. Still on Vicodin, but one instead of two, and recovering nicely. Whew.

Tater got through the night just fine, and is much more mobile today. The worst thing so far is that it's raining, and he can't get his paw with the stitches wet, so I have to put a plastic bag over his paw before he goes outside. He reminds me of a colt the first time they get their legs wrapped - you know, the fancy-pants dance they do where they lift their legs up and shake them, then think they can't step on that foot? Well, Tater is doing the fancy-pants dance. Poor guy, but still whew again.

What's really bugging me is that I have to leave this afternoon. I was invited to this fancy-schmanzy seminar that my company gives (I can't remember what they call it, but it sounds impressive with words like global and executive in there somewhere) and it starts tonight and runs through Thursday. It's here in Chicago, but I have to stay close the the Northwestern University Campus since that's where it is happening. They have us booked from 7 AM to 9 or 10 every night. I keep telling myself that if I don't like what Don sounds like I can just bail out and come home, but I'm stressing. It's an honor to be invited, and I shouldn't turn it down, but I could really use for it to be next week instead of this week.

So, as usual, I'm cooking. Chicken and dumplings, etc. I might not be here, but I'll be represented well.

I'll update when I can, but it may be next weekend. I hope to collapse next weekend and go nowhere and do nothing. That sounds really good to me right now, but it's at least a week away! And I know I'll have the normal weekend stuff - cross country meets, grocery stores, etc. But if we can have no health crises it will feel like a vacation!
