I've been meaning to post, but I just haven't found the time. I haven't been able to visit and comment on other blogs as much as usual either....I'm sorry. I promise I'll make up for it.
My daughter, Jory, has been in town since Monday night on business for BlogHer ; and well, I guess I don't have to explain do I? In between our great chats, running her to the train for business meetings in Chicago, and sleeping....I've managed to squeeze some necessary work in.
Of course even Jory knows there are some things you just don't 'mess with' mom about. Like watching American Idol and Dancing With The Stars. And really she loves watching them too....when she gets the chance. She actually took a cab home last night from Chicago rather than bother me during my shows to pick her up from the train. What a kid. Albeit her day ended up going much later than she planned anyway. Still....it was a sweetness on her part.
As wonderful as it is to have Jory home, she and I are very disappointed about one thing. Her Aunt Heidi and Uncle John (my late husband's sister) are coming in town today for Heidi's class reunion on Saturday. The whole DJ family....all of Jory's uncles, aunts and cousins in the area... are getting together tomorrow night for dinner, conversation and laughs. Jory's schedule is so busy, that she won't be able to join us. She comes home late tonight, has a conference in Chicago tomorrow, and flies out of Chicago and back to California later in the day. She misses everything....and everybody. What a bummer! It's not often that we all can get together in the same place at the same time. But hey, it is what it is....we'll sure miss her. She brings a lot to the table and adds a whole lot to the conversation. So it will be just Joe, Jenna and I who will be representing our little twig of the DJ tree.
Okay, now that I've explained why I've been such a bad blogging buddy I hope you forgive me. I really needed to let you know. I was feeling so guilty. I miss you, but I'll be coming by very soon.....Love and hugs, Joy
