Trixie....Paul is in my prayers. They will probably put him on Coumadin to thin his blood so that the the clot will disolve.

Pat I had to work today so I know how you and your daughter feel. But I must say a mandatory dance practice on Memorial Day is a bit EXTREME.

I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day. Even though I had to work today I had a good weekend. The kids were with the sister to help her move into her new house.

You ladies are really close to VEGAS TIME!!!!!! I am excited for you all!!!! I want lots and lots and lots of pictures!!!!!

Well I am off to eat some supper.

Type at ya soon!!!

Good Evening Ladies!

What a day! Well, Paul apparently does not have a blood clot, but rather some sort of strain or injury to his knee. They didn't do an ultrasound (which I was kind of hoping he would), but they did do an xray and found inflammation around his knee. He's on 800 MG of Ibuprofen, but if it doesn't clear up within a few days he needs to see a specialist. The poor guy is in so much pain, I feel bad because there's nothing I can do for him. Thank goodness it's not a blood clot though.

Thanks for all your well wishes, I really appreciate them!

ANyways, I'm lurking for just a little bit longer and then heading for bed on the floor again. Since Paul has been sleeping with his leg stuffed in the couch to relieve the pain, I have been o the floor just in case he needs me. Now THAT'S what I call love and devotion! Actually, my back doesn't bother me as much after sleeping on the floor - time for a new bed!

I can't believe Vegas is next week!!!!

Trixie...glad to hear Paul doesn't have a blood clot but a knee strain is not fun either. I hope it clears up soon...isn't he scheduled to dance with you in Vegas? :confused:

If sleeping on the floor is better than sleeping in your bed, then YES you need a new mattress! :funnyface:

Miklyn...see you tonight! Meet me anytime after 7:30pm.

Even though I did not get to see my Cubbies play, they lost anyway, my daughter and I did something fun before she had to go to dance class. We went to the pool! Luckily it was not very crowded so we had plenty of room to swim. I plan on taking a dip or two in Vegas at the hotel pool. I saw it when I was there last year and it is gorgeous...very tropical! I hope some of you are planning on doing the same! ;)

Well gotta head off to work now.

I'll check in later.

Trixie, glad Paul doesn't have a blood clot and I really hope that it doesn't hurt him too much in Vegas!

BTW, the ladies going to Vegas, did you notice the post about the POTO show being canceled? I wasn't sure how many of you were going to that show in Vegas but thought I would pass the info along. That is such a bummer for those who were supposed to go. POTO info thread

Yes I did see that and I am just sick about it! Marie and I had purchased tickets and changed our flight plans just to see POTO. Now that it is canceled, we will have to change our return flights which I know it going to cost me more money. :(

O ya, Susan pm's me tonite about it. Ethan and I are opting out as our travel plans would make it too tight of a squeeze to make it there from my hometown in Northern Utah. So I guess it is Spamalot or Blue Man Group on Sunday.

ARGH!!

Good Morning Ladies

Popping in quick while I'm at work. I gotta show you what my Mom found on their farm yesterday.....a huge snapping turtle! I guess their dog was barking like crazy, so she looked out the window and saw this thing! Now, it's just hanging around the farm. He's not bothering anything or anybody, just hanging out. I just told her to be careful that my kids don't go near it whiel they're out there next week.

Hey girlies,

Trix - Glad Paul is doing much better. You scared me there when you said it may be a blood clot. That's something NOT to miss with. As for the snapping turtle, how cute. I rescued one while in college as it was crawling in the street. He lasted about a year then he died on me. Boo hooo hooo.

Sorry to hear about the whole POTO being cancelled on your guys. I wasn't going, but I'm still bummed for ya. How many of you are doing the Chippies on Thursday! Wahoo!!!! 8 more days ladies - 8 more days!!!

Well I'm off. I shall return.

Paulette & Pat, that's such a bummer about the POTO show! I'd be so mad if I was going and it got cancelled.

Trixie, that's a pretty cool looking turtle. I never realized they had such long tails. And do they really attack people or what? Just curious. :confused:

Hey there Cassie! :wave:

Hi Everyone:

So, Vegas is next week, is it? Well, I hope you all have a great time and have some Vegas stories to share when you get back.

Things are pretty hectic at work these days and will most likely stay this way through the end of the year. Have done a bit of traveling for work and am just busy trying to enjoy the summer! WindyCityFan and I talked about trying to get out there for the Highland Games but she has to work that weekend so she can't. I don't have a car or I would be tempted to come join you all - men in kilts - sounds like Heaven to me!!!! Hope you all have fun there as well.

Well, I am going to jump off now. I am glad to see everyone seems to be doing well and that you are keeping the GMCL flame burning.

Trix - I haven't had a chance to visit your fan site since the day I signed on but I trust our new guy is doing well and growing up into a fine young man (just kidding - I know he's an adult!). He is a cutie.

Gotta go.

Hey there Gemmie! Good to hear from you! Bummer you ladies can't make it out to the Highland Games. If I lived closer to you I'd come pick you up. I'm up in the air about Saturday because I'm supposed to work, but I'm hoping my SIL can cover for me that day. AND I'm hoping I can get a sitter. If not, the kids just come with me then. They'd love it anyway. That would be the first time I took my kids to a gathering! LOL The new site is doing VERY well these days! Pop on anytime!

Hey Gemmie! Long time no chat. Glad to hear you are doing well. Shame you can't make the Highland Games. I can't make it either but hopefully soon I'll be able to join the rest of the GMCL's for another gathering. You make sure to pop in as often as you can and let us know how you are doing!

I myself just got home from seeing 300 for the third time. Thought I better catch it on the big screen one last time before it's gone. :tissues: Every time I watch it I see something new and wonderful that I missed the last time. I'm hoping that the theater will keep it another week because my sister wants to see it but I won't know for sure until tomorrow if they are keeping it there. If not, I'll just have to wait for the DVD. Hopefully I'll survive. lol I better head to bed, I do have to work in the morning. Talk to everyone soon!

Hey Everybody!

I have been lurking...just too busy or tired to post! :confused:

The rehearsals started for the play on Tuesday and Thursday so I am out from 6:00pm to 11:00pm those days. We went to see Pirates Friday and finally, the dance recital started today, so I have been out since 7:00am today and just got home about an hour ago! We still have 2 more shows tomorrow!

Needless to say, I am TIRED!!! But it is what I like to do, so I enjoy it even tho it is tiring!

POTC 3 was AWESOME!!! You MUST go see it! It IS a long movie, but I loved every minute of it and never noticed the time! Johnny Depp :pant: and Orlando Bloom :thud:...I wouldn't mind being shipwrecked on an island with either one (or both) of those guys!!! :cunning: One word of advice...DO NOT leave before the credits are over!!! ;)

Can't believe Vegas is this Friday! I have something to do everyday BEFORE I leave so I have to figure out a day to pack? :confused: FYI...according to the Weather Channel, Vegas is going to be VERY HOT...like 100 degrees next week! :scared: Looks like I will be staying inside the hotel/casino most of the time we are there!

Well gotta go take a shower and go to bed. Tomorrow is another long day!

Kitty, I said it on the other thread but I will say it again. You are a true artist with the videos you make! And the ending was HILARIOUS!!! :rotflmao:

And what about those MTV Awards? WTG Gerry!!!!! :claphands::bow2: It's about time that they recognize the talent he's got. Shame that none of the others that were nominated won, but still great that Gerry won for Best Fight!

And hi Linda!! :wave:

hello all-

sorry I have not kept up on my posting duties over here. I am going to miss you all this weekend. :bow: I bow to you who can make the trip. Hug Gerry for me, if he shows. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Quinton's birthday party is on Saturday and he will be 4. My baby is growing up. :tissues: It feels like just yesterday I brought him home from the hospital.

I might check in later. I will be watching Kathy Griffin tonight. Love her.

Just a quick drive by posting before I head out for Minneapolis to catch my flight to Utah/VEGAS!! Don't know if I will have internet access out there too much, unless I can home in on someone's wireless router. But I will post all the good stuff when I get back! Ethan is very excited about going. I think he has been telling everyone for the past week that he is going to Vegas!

I am planning on going to POTO in Chicago and everything works out with the rearranging of MT. I twisted Kelly's arm to go with me as well. LOL

Anyhoo.....looking forward to seeing all you GALS that will be in Vegas. I'll be calling ya when I hit town. I still can't believe I am going to wear a strapless formal there! The girls are going to need some major understructure to keep them up there! LOL

All those staying home, keep the fires burning!

I am OTD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well ladies, the time has come. Vegas baby!!!! Wahoo!!!!!! I'm like a chicken w/its head cut off trying to make sure I don't forget anything. My plane leaves at 6am tomorrow so I'm off to bed by 9pm. This fookin rain has been MURDER on my sinuses. I'm sooooooo hoping my flying experience will not be affected. OMG! Just knock me out and wake me when I get there.

C U Gorgeous babes in VEGAS!!!!!!

BTW, I printed out the cellphone list so that we can locate each other. If you haven't updated your information please do. I will be printing out a new list before I go to bed. If you're doing the Chippies show we're also trying to get a group together to have dinner before the show. The thread is in the Vegas folder.

Cial ladies,

Cassie

Have a safe trip Cassie!

I am still packing and getting things together myself. But what is scaring me is this pain I am having in my jaw! I am worried it might be the start of another tooth problem! That last time I had this, I ended up with a root canal! I will wait to see what happens tomorrow and if the pain is still there, I am calling the dentist. However, last time she just gave me an antibiotic and a pain killer to take until she could see me. With me leaving Friday, she will probably do the same thing but I remember last time I was still in alot of pain.

Of all times for this to happen. I am so upset I could just :crybaby:.

All the ladies heading to Vegas, you have a blast out there! Patkay, I hope your tooth is nothing serious and it goes away quick so you won't have to worry about it in Vegas. I'd be :tantrum: if it was me having to deal with something like this on a vacation. But hopefully it will clear up in a hurry.

Cassie, Paulette, Miklyn, Trixie & anyone else I missed you better take LOTS of pics and call me on my phone if Gerry shows up! :D

Just a quick note that we FINALLY made it to UTAH! It was a total nightmare! First, we sat on the runway in Minneapolis for 3 freakin' hours before we FINALLY got clearance to take off to Denver. I guess Denver was having a major windstorm, that basically delayed the flights across the nation. We missed our connecting flight in Denver, so had to try and rebook and finally got on a later flight which was delayed 2 times. So we finally got on our flight Utah at 11pm. It was one bumping ride, and then as we are approaching SLC, they tell us that they are possibly shutting down the airport as the air traffic control tower is on fire and that we may be rerouted to BOISE IDAHO!!! THe whole plane load of people just groaned because we had all been delayed, missed connections etc. HOwever, we finally were given clearance to land. So we FINALLY arrived in UTah at 1am in the morning. I told Ethan we needed to get a shirt that says...."We survived the flight from Hell to SLC."

So anyhoo.....we are heading out shortly to drive to Las Wages. So well will be there tonite. I hope the rest of our trip is better than the trip getting here, and I am really hoping this doesn't happen again when I go to Ireland next month.

Well, better go for now. Will check in when In Vegas!! GALS CONY, here we come!
