This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Dad and plans for this weekend...

Am so excited to see my sister, Mom and girlfriends tomorrow.  I will have lunch for them when they arrive, then we had plans to go see the Big Elvis show.  He is an Elvis impersonator that used to weigh 800 pounds.  This man is phenominal and sounds just like, the King.  He has lost weight, without bypass surgery, through hard work, exercise and diet changes.  Unfortunately, he canceled his show this weekend due to March Madness...

So we will go to Town Square, which is an outdoor shopping experience, patterned after a small town. I went to lunch there a couple weeks back to lunch with two blogging buddies.  While visiting there, I discovered an eyebrow threading salon.  I am anxious to have my brows threaded.  My youngest daughter swears by threading, and has the most gorgeous brows I have ever seen.  So I volunteered to be the guinnea pig, to see how it is.  We'll probably hit a casino on our way back to our girlfriend's house for dinner.  My Mom is choppin' at the bit to gamble. 

Saturday, we are off for a day of photo taking at the Bellagio conservatory, and City Centerl; followed by a Wild Life lazor show/dinner at Sam's Town. City Center is the most expensive construction project in the western hemisphere, costing $11+billion dollars. It opened last December.  The City Center complex will feature some of the worlds most renowned sculpture artists, including Maya Lin, Jenny Holzer, Claes Oldenburg, Coosje Van Bruggen, Nancy Rubins, Frank Stella, Henry Moore, and Richard Long.

We should get some interesting photographs...

Sunday, we will exchange photos and work on Digital Scrapping from all the photos we took.  When we finish, we send them to Costco to pick up later on.  Monday morning, we meet for breakfast for our good byes as the girls drive home.

These are the plans we have tentively planned...course that could change, depending how the group is feeling and what everyone feels like doing.

Mom received a phone call from the nursing home...(did not call me...AGAIN) to let her know Dad has another urinary tract infection.  I sent an email to his doctor asking why he has another one so close to the last one, which was in March, or the end of February.  I wonder if it is from not drinking enough water?

I'm tired...better hit the sheets, lots still to do before the girls arrive...

I can't believe they didn't call you again! How hard can this be to understand...
Have fun!

Your weekend sounds like it will be fun, fun, fun. I'm with your mom...I've got a little itch to go to a casino, but don't think that will happen this weedend with 10-12 inches of snow predicted today. I hope you guys have a great time.

Debra: Yeah...we always have so much fun, even if we deviate from the plan...

Mari: CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? Maybe, it might be due to the cell phone problem I have been having...but I think I finally have it solved after getting a new phone, new battery and new charger!

Jeanie:It will be...we have a blast. Mom won but put it all back, my sister and I won and put it back in our purses. We played penny machines and laughed our heads off...
