Oh Dorothy! I could really use your pretty slippers about now! My trusty ol' rocket dogs don't seem to be working! I am so behind. I feel like I'm still in search of yesterday. Where did it go?! And the day before that? Wow I need to get things going here! It's hard to move on with life in a semi-normal fashion when I know what is going on at PCH with my sweet little California. I feel consumed sometimes with thinking about it. I know that it is in the Lord's hands but I cannot keep it out of my mind. I'm thinking that three clicks of the heels would be a great way to solve this problem. Click Click Click and I'm checking in on Cal Jayne {without bothering my parents}...Click Click Click again and I'm back at home with my handsome boys playing pat-a-cake, a bit of the anticipation subsided. Oh if only!

Here's a little taste of my malfunctioning mind. Yesterday I finally made it out of my house for a quick trip to the Post Office. I imagine the bill collectors wouldn't care much if I explained that I hadn't sent out payments yet because I didn't feel like getting dressed today. Big bummer! So I wrote checks, licked envelopes and off I went. I got home feeling relieved that I could now remove that from my mental "to do" list when suddenly I was staring at a book of stamps. Several smiling Disney characters seemed to be mocking me in my moment of realization...Holy Moly! I forgot to put stamps on my envelopes! Gads! So here I am again. I would be lying if I said I was not in my comfy pj's today. I most certainly am. I sit here waiting for my men to wake up so that we can take yet another trip to the Post Office where I am sure to find several unhappy articles of mail lurking in my box with no stamps.

On a happier note I did get word from my mom that Callie is being taken off the EEG monitor today! Apparently there was absolutely no sign of seizing from their reads. Such great news! She has had to have her head wrapped in gauze with all the probes on her, but she will get to take that off as well and hopefully that will help to lower her fever. And as I mentioned before she will be going in for another MRI today. Let's pray that the only changes are positive ones.

Hey Ash,
I just copied and pasted from yours on to both my blogs. I can't figure out all that stuff for the donate button (it is a whole other language for me:). I will call my sister to have her help me tomorrow! I hope you get a GREAT turnout!
