Coming out Party

Last night I actually had a party at my house...and saw people!! It was wonderful. It was actually a book club for our women's group at church, but people came to my house...and I got to see people I haven't seen for a while. It was awesome! My family helped me get everything ready (and then cleaned it up too), so there wasn't a lot of work for me to do. It was good to visit with people. I can't stand for long--I don't have that much energy, but it was great to see people and to talk with them...and to feel like I was part of the world again. :) PLus it was a great evening. We were discussing a book that my brother-in-law, Greg Cootsona, wrote...and we fixed it up so that we could skype with it was like having him there--he was actually projected on a screen and we could talk with him. It was so incredibly neat!! Of course, he's such a great guy and did an absolutely fabulous job. The women just loved him, and he opened it up to questions, and so it was very personal. So the whole evening was just terrific...and I was very thankful for my friends who were there, and for Greg, who is just the most awesome guy ever! :)I felt good during the evening, but I was very tired and slept very well last night.

Well, it is Friday. I go to the Piper Center to get hydrated, and then Kelsey and I have to go back so I can get my PICC line flushed out and cleaned for the week. I hope you all have a good Friday, and that this will be a good weekend for you. I love you, Louise


  1. So glad to hear that Greg was such an integral part of your party! He had a great time and was honored to have you all read his book, Say Yes to No (just in case others were interested and didn't know the title! :)

    Have a great Friday. Lo

  2. This must have been a wonderful evening, Louise! So glad all turned out well -- that you could gather with good friends and that Greg could "be" with you too. I've been wanting to let Laura know that I loaned my copy of Greg's book to a friend, who read it & promptly went out and bought her own copy. A very timely book.
    Hope you have a very good day.

  3. We all had a great time and enjoyed getting to visit with you again after so many weeks. Greg was great and that was diffidently one of the best book club meetings ever - if not the best. Thank him for us again. And thanks to you for not saying no this time and letting us come join you for the meeting. Love you, Weezy!!

  4. Dear Louise:
    Yeah! The party sounded GREAT.. Greg always exudes the best energy. I am so glad you got to see your friends and have a warm, loving evening together! We are doing great... today is the first day of a 2 week vacation. We are not sure but may go up to Stockholm to see Keith... it kind of depends on this fuel crisis an the strikes. Otherwise, we will do the same old same old.. riding, trolling the open markets for fresh fruit and veggies, working in front of the fireplace, long walks with my beloved dog...Love YOU!!! Sue
