This and That...

 OK, I am feeling much better now after 9 hours of sleep...
Kameron started his Welding Fabrication School classes today... I hope he likes it... he has to drive an hour into Riverside for them... 2 days a week, four hours, for 6 months...  He really does have a talent for welding...
On to some stories about yesterday...
I am shopping with Kieffer and Kris in Epidemic Skate Shop [a popular local store for teenagers] and we run into Trustan and Island [my friend Tuesday's kids] 
SO Trustan asks Kieffer
"How did you do at World Mini, I didn't even make it to the mains this year"
Kieffer says "We didn't go because I broke my leg"
Trustan looks down at Kieffer and he is wearing jeans, shoes, and looks fine...
"Shut up, no you didn't"
"Ya I did! I broke it in Texas"
"Dude I was at Texas, and you didnt have a broken leg"
"I broke it at Oak Hill, you only went to Whitney"
"I had to fly home and have surgery"
"Oh wow..."
I think that conversation really made us realize how quickly he healed because if Trustan was standing there saying he had a broken leg and surgery from Texas I would have been amazed too...
Then Kieffer said "You know Mom I believe this was my fastest recovery"  I agree with him...
Well, I have to head to the dry cleaners... then get the car washed... then make a photo memory board for Grampa...

We decided this was Kelly's fastest recovery too.  Must be the time of year!  (lol)

Glad you got some sleep....you need to stock up.  The next few days are going to be emotional and you'll need some sleep in reserves.

Remember....I'm always here!!!
