we are family

lots happening in the cronin family and stl world. send your thoughts and prayers to this guy (my cousin aaron) and my uncle who just went thru some extensive transplant surgeries. they are both in recovery but could use your thoughts and well wishes. surgery was expected but surgery is surgery and it makes us all nervous! i wish i was there to sneak them fast food and cell phones into the hospital. ;)

my aunt and my mom both celebrate bdays (aunt jayne was yesterday and mom is tomorrow!). cousin jake and his wife jenny found out they are having a BOY! cousin bridget finds out the sex of her baby next week. sister jen got a bonus at work and baby is coming to little rock in june! i think that is all the news and i feel removed from it and sad about it. especially since karl has been in chicago ALL WEEK. i want to go to yankee-land.

BUT on a positive note, karl got an earlier flight back and will now be arriving at 5 p.m. instead of 10 p.m. so i am very happy about that! AND we have a three day weekend so it's time to go to work around the house! riverfest (musical festival) is here this weekend with lots of musical guests (pat benatar! george clinton & the p funk allstars! ll cool j! blake shelton! um... some other randoms... smashmouth... UM. Ruben Studard. none that sound that appealing to me. when did i lose my love of outdoor concerts and festivals? Probably when i started drinking beer and having to use port a pottys - does that make me old?!? plus, the last time i went to a concert in Arkansas, i was a bit shocked by the sheer force of rednecks AND they sold spit cups for 50 cents. oh AND the child - yes, child - next to me puked in his beer cup. and my ears were assulted by hey ya'lls and yee haws! tee hee. :)

You should have emailed me that Karl was in Chicago! We could have hung out. I need FRIENDS :) I hope he had fun while he was here. Post pics if he has some.
