Day 956 - Jan 10, 2011

You had to know that there was a freak winter storm that just happened to hit the one single week a year that Kevin actually has a friend come to visit, right? Yes. Atlanta airport is closed and Ronnie and Marissa's flight was canceled for tomorrow morning.

It took me 7 1/2 hours to get through to make alternate flight arrangements. Did you know that you are automatically hung up on after 60 minutes on the dot of holding? Ummm...yeah. I thought it was a freak thing the first time, but it happened again so apparently not.

So anyway, they are now scheduled for Wednesday morning. I sure hope it happens. Kevin was just devastated when we weren't sure if they were going to come or not. He was just so depressed. He's in a better mood now, though.

And for those that mentioned how good Kevin's skin looks...I...ummm...kinda brushed it with my photo editing software. I also brightened the whites of his eyes. Sorry. I still think he looks good, but sometimes I just touch up the photos a bit before printing. Here's the naked one:

I haven't learned the art of a lighter touch yet on the editing, but maybe someday. There's just so much to learn.

And still no Christian. Breezy wants to have him tomorrow because she likes the date 1/11/11. I guess we'll see, huh?

Touched , untouched, he looks great!
Hoping that Breezy is going to get her wish --- 1/11/11.
We are awaiting the storm in Western PA. Hope it misses us. Tired of winter. Waiting for the sunshine and some warmer temps.
Thoughts and prayers,

Yep, he looks good. Either way.

Can't wait for the news of the baby. Is Breezy past her due date now? I bet she is more than ready.

Sorry about the storm in Atlanta. Lotsa weird weather this winter everywhere. Hope your friends can get there without more delay.

Can't help but feel positive about the congresswoman from Arizona. After seeing Kevin come back from his brain injury,....I'm sure we'll see her come back as well. Kevin is such an inspiration.

Have a great day!

Gotta agree with everyone else - touched up or not touched up, Kevin looks FANTASTIC!! It is truly amazing - particularly when one goes back in time and looks at the pics from even just a year ago. W-O-W!! And in the beret too - he looks sooo handsome!!!

Crossing my fingers, toes and everything else that crosses hoping that Ronnie and Marissa arrive safely tomorrow! Geez talk about timing. Up here in RI we're waiting for that same snow to arrive - our 'blizzard' is to start after midnight and go through tomorrow.

Can't wait to hear if Christian arrives today!! I can't wait!!

God bless you all. Thoughts, prayers, support and loads and loads of extra special Angel Hugs are always coming your way. Always.

Ugh, sorry to see this storm interupting plans. Sure hope they're able to fly out.
