I turn the BIG 2-6!  I decide on the 24th at about 8pm to throw myself a party the next day.  It is Memorial Day and My Birthday so, OF COURSE, it rains.  It rains every single year on my birthday. 🙂  On May 25, 2008, as Chloë Noelle made her grand entrance there was a GIANT thunder-storm.  Aunt Lori welcomed little CoCo and told her all about how it would rain every year, from now on, on her Birthday or at least the day before, since she claimed her very own birthday two hours after mine.

Ben’s cousin, Tim recently won a battle with cancer.  Though, Tim was a very blessed man with a loving family to support him and the blessing of wealth to pay the outrageous bills he understood that not everyone is a lucky as he was.

Tim and his friends and sisters decided to start the Annual Tim Jones Charity Ball.  The proceeds will benefit those who are unable to keep up with their bills while being treated at the Siteman Cancer Center.  This also, was close to my heart since my physicians work at the Heart Care Institute which is located in the Siteman Cancer Center.

Ben & I had a great night out and were able to donate some cash to a great cause.  We will definitely be attending annually.

(The Great Poo Flood of 09′)

Sometime in May, (I can not remember the exact day at the moment)  Our home flooded because our toilet blew up.  That’s right folks the toilet blew up!  Somehow a 3/4 inch coil of copper wire ended up in the pluming system and clogged the pipes directly above us.  This caused everything to back up.  The result:  Every time any of the occupants of the TWELVE condos in our complex flushed their toilet, ran water to do dishes, ran their dishwasher, took a shower, etc. etc…  all of the water ended up spewing from OUR toilet.  We had been gone since six a.m. so when we came home at 11 p.m.  the toilet looked like Old Faithful Geyser, and our condo looked like a lake of poo.

Later that week, after fighting with the owner who did not want to replace our sewage soaked carpet, Ben and I decided it was time to start looking for a new place to live.  I believe it was a Wednesday;  Ben was checking out condos/houses and I was trying my best to focus at work.  The phone rang and I answered, “Cardiology Consultation Service, this is Lori”.  Mom responded, “Now don’t get all excited, it is no big deal, you do not need to come but….”  “But, what MOMMA???”  “Your dad was on his way to a job site this morning with Dan when he got pretty dizzy and well, we think he had a heart attack…”  “WHAT????!?!??!” I almost screamed!  “Not my Daddy”, I thought.  “My Daddy, is Superman, he can not have a heart attach”.

I, of course, immediately called Ben while running out of my office.  We got to the hospital and there sat Daddy, on a stretcher in nothing but his jeans, with EKG patches all over his chest.  As we walked in the room he put his finger to his mouth to shush us.  He was “on a business call”  Just like my Daddy!!!  Just had a heart attack and can not even take a break to go to the hospital.  Ben quickly quipped, “No cell phones in the E.R., Mark!”

Luckily it was not really a heart attach.  Just low potassium.  The Dr. prescribed lots of bananas, and NO MORE 14 hour work days followed by working on the rehab house in 100 degree weather.  My daddy, the workaholic!

So, needless to say, that was the week from HELL!  Thankfully the owner finally wised up and realized that he would never get tenants in this place as good as us and agreed to replace all of the floors.  We actually got a great surprise out of the deal and got not only new carpet but also hard wood floors in the entryway and hallways.  YIPPIE!!

Ben and I took in a free baseball game!  Bob gave us his AWESOME seats to a Cardinals game because, he loves us!  We packed a lunch and took off for a nice Sunday game.
