This coming week is sure to be hectic. Tomorrow, Mandee is participating in her White Coat Ceremoney (Meaning, it is the end of her strictly classroom studies and she’s about to embark on clinical practice for a year). So happy that her mom, sister, and close friend Heather are going to be able to make a trek up from GA. As well, my sister, brother-in-law, and other close friends will be able to attend. In preparation, Basil helped up prepare a huge batch of my mom’s chili last evening. Yum! I can’t wait to try it!!

Then on Monday, Mandee is due to have her over-active thyroid removed. No fun there! But we are all sure the recovery will be smooth. -E
