Come Together! Roger’s busted collarbone didn’t, so he’s having surgery tomorrow to fix it.

***

Bounty. Soooo many kind-hearted people have supplied us with meals during The Ordeal.

  • Super yummy salmon chowder from Phoebe (I don’t really want to share the soup with the rest of my family, but a mom does what she must).
  • Homemade rigatoni from my good friend Michelle, along with a delicious salad and artisan bread.
  • Chicken Cacciatore from our across the street neighbors (who also mowed our lawn).
  • Gourmet pizza from Kim and David, dear friends of nearly 20 years.

We are so blessed to have these people in our lives. We can never pay them back; we can only pass on their kindness.

***

More bounty. Roger grilled some steaks the other night, but I’d forgotten to pick up a vegetable from the store. I needed an emergency side dish.

So I went out to the garden I’ve been neglecting this year, and a hail-damaged acorn squash was ready to be picked. In spite of the pockmarks, its flesh was deLICIOUS with a little butter and maple syrup.

SO much more flavorful than store-bought.

***

Hair. Roger is sporting a beard for the first time since I’ve known him. His shaving arm can’t quite make it up to his face, and for some reason, he doesn’t trust me with a razor near his jugular.

***

Reads. Some open adoption articles that may be of interest to you:

***

Rock. Here‘s deep discussion of 1980s music (aren’t ALL discussions about 80s music deep?) and a review of the newly released soundtrack for the Broadway musical, Rock of Ages.

***

That’s the news and I am outta here.

Sending good thoughts to Roger tomorrow for the surgery. And I don’t think there is anything cooler than raiding your own garden for dinner :-)

Healing thoughts for R’s surgery. (As if you guys had been far from my thoughts, anyway.) So sorry he’s got to go back in. Peace for you.

And in my experience, bearded kisses are less scratchy than stubbly kisses. Just sayin’.

I think Roger would look handsome with a beard, but not sure the kids (or you) would like the scratchy kisses.

Good luck tomorrow!

Picture me sitting in the surgical waiting room with you, holding your hand.

I’ll have a laptop, a copy of Mel’s book, and some M&M’s premiums to share! I’ll even smuggle in a flask of mojitos, just to help take the edge off the wait.

my goodness! busy week. I don’t know about MY cooking (its pretty sad), but I am willing to cook you all something, freeze it, call someone to examine it, then call a pizza place near you and ask them to bring you a pizza. =) let me know if I can make that call. =)

Beards are ok…stubble, not so much. Can we see a pic of him all bearded up?

I hope Roger’s surgery goes off without a hitch and his recovery is quick and as painless as possible.

Man, if I didn’t have a splitting migraine, I’d have something witty to say. I hope that the surgery goes swimmingly and that Vicodin abounds.

I hope the surgery goes well! I bet your friends and neighbors are getting much love in return :-)

Thanks for the Rock of Ages review. I love 80′s hair metal so much – I think that is why I’ve been so skeptical of the musical.
