Lucky Night

Casey's out of town again (again, on a cool trip!  So proud of him- chosen to get to play golf with the Regional VP and some higher ups for doing such a great job over the past few quarters.  It's a WAY bigger deal than I'm making it out to be.  But we'll brag to the people who care sooner or later!)- anyway, so I'm just operating in survival mode right now.  W

We went to chick-fil-a to eat and play and get real tired after school today- and it happened to be family fun night!!  There was a clown there painting faces (or arms, in Ada's case- not sure why she chose that body part!), making balloon animals/objects, and the big cow roaming around!  Ada had a ball.

We also went to Charmin' Charlies (the superstore of costume jewelry) where Ada picked out 2 headbands and a purse on clearance.  We actually went to get a gift card for one of my students that I had last year in Chemistry, and this year in Anatomy- who found out this summer she has stage 3 Hodgkin's lymphoma.  She's been placed on homebound instruction for the semester while she undergoes treatments.  As if that weren't bad enough, she's having some adverse reactions to the therapy and spending a lot of time in ICU.  She can't do anything like get manicures or pedicures because of her weakened immune system- so we (myself and 2nd period) thought she might like to get some pretty jewelry or a scarf or something.  Prayers for Jackie, please!  Why do such BAD things happen to such WONDERFUL people!?
