Say Yes to the Dress? Janet & the girls shop for a wedding dress for Heather. #TSJ

Janet awoke earlier than I thought she would this morning and we were eating breakfast by nine. As planned there was no rush to do anything this morning so once breakfast was well underway I brought out a whole bunch of bathroom type stuff for the girls to purge. It didn’t take long to discover that Janet is a curling iron hoarder. Six pairs of them! She is also a contact lens case collector, dozens of those were found in various spots. It all made for some good laughs and Laurel and Heather each managed to find something they could use that Janet no longer will and we have less to pack come moving day, whenever that is.

More purging took place downstairs as we sorted through an old cedar chest that contained a lot of old dresses the girls used to wear and a cute pink lacy sleeper that Janet says was Andrew’s. I hope not but you never know.


That was a pretty active morning and I think Janet maybe got up a little too soon as she was pretty tired by 11:30. Laurel and Heather gave her a good stretch then she agreed to have a little nap before the big event of the day.

An hour later Janet was awake and re-energized for an afternoon of wedding dress shopping for Heather. I dropped Janet and the girls off downtown so they could go for lunch before the two o’clock appointment at the bridal salon. When I picked them up at City Park later on Janet was hanging in there nicely and said they’d had a good time. Heather was unable to say yes to a dress though.

We met Courtney at church tonight then all went for a pre Cinco de Mayo dinner at Hector’s Casa for what is a family tradition. As far as I know there is no Mexican blood in our family but its always fun to go out for Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo. Janet was doing really well so was allowed to have a margarita. There is a Keek of her first sip. @larrylatour . Dinner was good with the conversation centered around weddings of course as Courtney is getting married late this summer.

The day was quite busy for Janet and after lounging in her wheelchair for a little bit once we got home she fell asleep before I could get her PJs on. Praying for a night of rest and healing and looking forward to an enjoyable morning with Laurel and Heather before they both head back to their homes in the afternoon.
