Just a little retreat reminder!

watch your emails for the evaluation!  We want each of you to answer a few questions to aid us in planning the next retreat!

watch for it!  And reply promptly!

I will be looking for it. I have only good things to say and already looking forward to next year. It was so awesome to almost complete a flimsy this year.

I'm so glad Maisy is doing well!  :D Been praying for her!

Cathy I think I sent you my retreat evaluation. Let me know if you got it. Used my cell phone to send it which was tricky and I hope it worked.

I did receive the retreat evaluation now I just need to make myself DO it.  But...  how can you improve on perfection!?!?  I'll see what I can come up with.

I've been behind as since I've been home from the retreat as we began fully into selection for the house.  Progress on the foundation has been made and the foundation footing were poured and then the foundation walls (set on top) were framed.  We were supposed to get those poured yesterday but we got more snow that was expected so we are waiting for it to be safe for the workers and appropriate conditions for concrete to be poured.  

Two weeks ago tonight my sister contacted me that our Mom wasn't feeling well.  After my sister went to Mom's she kept my updated that Mom felt heaviness in her chest and just wanted to go to bed and sleep.  We both thought 911 should check her out.  Mom's power had been out all day and the house was cold and pitch black so Mom was readying for bed.  911 arrived and checked her out and determined she was having a cardiac episode and they transported her to the hospital.  A conference call with the ER doc, incoming Cardiologist, my sister and me led us to understand the hospital was on generator power to they were hesitant to take her to a Cath Lab.  For a 91yo there might not be a good outcome if there was a problem.  So we authorized them to use a clot busting medication which thankfully Mom responded well to.  My DH said I should go to be there so at midnight I bought a ticket to fly the next morning.  By the time I arrived at the hospital the next afternoon she looked great and was doing well.  I stayed the week and helped my sister do some chores relative to things for Mom.  She's home and recovering and doing well but I feel a bit like I'm behind in life!
