One of the social workers came over to tell me that she got a call from the unit in Gatlinburg. They were calling to tell her that they have a chair time for me over Thanksgiving. So, I get to go out of town! She told them not to give us a time unless they were 100% sure and explained the stupid Florida situation. They were very sympathetic and said I'd love it there. It's a new unit and supposed to be lovely. We'll see...but at least I get to leave town for a while. Yeah!

Did you know that pumpkin patches aren't open at night? We drove all over the place trying to find one. We ended up at Biggs. Sad, but they did have a great selection of pumpkins. Alli got to climb on bails of hay to find the perfect one. We didn't take any pictures....cause we were at Biggs. But we'll take some before and after we carve them.

I tried to prepare dinners for the week on Sunday. We've been eating out on dialysis days cause I feel crummy. I made three chicken casseroles: chicken with rice and broccoli, chicken with noodles, and chicken with tomatoes, green beans and couscous. I made them up. We'll see how they turn out. If you know any easy casserole recipes, send them to me.


  1. Yeah! I'm happy everything seems to be falling into place for you! It will be nice for you to get away for a little bit.

  2. Do you have/use a crockpot? Some of those recipes are super easy and very yummy!
