A little tired...

Tuesday, August 12, 2008
We've been busy. Friday, Rod and I went to the new mummy movie, "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor."

It was a great movie, but a bit creepy and it did manage to give me a few nightmares.

On Saturday, the Periwinkles met to discuss and organize our "Third Annual Phenomenal Hope for a Cure" that we're going to be having on November 1, 2008! We will be having a brunch and a silent and oral auction. The First Lady of Nebraska, Governor Dave Heineman's wife, Sally Ganem will be our honorary chairwoman. The local ABC news anchor, Brandi Petersen, will be our emcee. We are trying to get someone from PHA to come and speak. It should be, yet another wonderful event!

Sunday we went to church, breakfast and I was a complete bum all afternoon! I watched lots of the Olympics and knitted a new prayer shawl for a young woman who's battling cancer. We also got to go to dinner with Nick and his girlfriend! It was a great evening.

Then, last night Rod and I went to see....DOLLY PARTON!! She was here in Omaha for a concert! It was one of the best concerts that I've ever been to!

No, I didn't take this picture, I copied it from her website. Dolly has quite the following! There were people there from 6-80 years of age. Evidently she's been on the Hannah Montana show as "Aunt Dolly." So, she now has a whole new crop of followers. The last song she sang at the end of her 2 hour concert, was a new song called, "Jesus and Gravity." This is the refrain:

I've got
Somethin' lifting me up
Somethin' holding me down
Somethin' to give me wings and
Somethin' to keep my feet on the ground
I've got all I'll need
cause I've got Jesus and gravity

If I knew how to attach a YouTube thing, I'd show you how good it is. Please o to YouTube and check it out! It is so great!

Well, today I've increased my Flolan because I've really been dragging my butt and having some heart flip-fops. Plus, I can't seem to walk very far or very fast without getting light-headed. So, that's going to keep me busy today.

I know this is kind of an odd post. But there's something big going on "behind the scenes." I'll be sure to blog later and let you all in on it!

Thanks for reading.
