My son is coming home the weekend of the 9th -- it will be a quick trip -- less than 48 hours actually, but I'm glad he's coming home. Sometimes you just need to see your kids -- it's been about 5 months since I have seen him and even though that isn't a long time in many ways, it can sometimes seem a lot longer than that. We share October birthdays and we have always tried to be together as close to those dates as possible -- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But, even if it is for just a short weekend, it will be nice to have him home.
Our Memory Walk is less than a month away now. So many people have put so much into it -- I'm just hoping for no rain this year. Last year was the first year we encountered rain and it was miserable.
In a few short weeks The Shriver Project will be out. It will focus on Alzheimer's disease and as it gets closer to release, I'll fill you in more about it. First Lady of California Mary Shriver is behind it and a lot of work has been put into the report. I'm anxious to see it come out.
It's finally cooled down here in the south -- no more 90 degrees day for awhile.
