We did have a few outings too. First was Oreganos pizzeria for dinner one night where we all fit in a big booth and laughed like crazy as Jenny-Jane covered herself and Emma with stickers, Fisher asked the waitress three times what her name was (Sarah) and Dylan scorched his mouth on "medium hot" hot wings. Saturday the grown ups had a night out at Nick's and my all time favorite spot in the whole city, Pizzeria Bianco. The owners and staff treat us like royalty, especially now that I am bald. Hey, there are a few benefits to this whole cancer thing. Wendy presented us with gifts of handpicked lucite-bound 4-leaf clovers and a plastic jellyfish that Nick immediately plopped in his beer to scare the stone faced waitress.
Sunday eve the Carlo family joined us for yet more swimming and Nick's "fall-off-the-bone" ribs. Adding two more kids to the mix was a hoot. Hmmm... Now I'm thinking we could adopt four more, tee hee. While the kids watched movies late into the night, we six parents drank beers (me too!) and attempted to teach our guests the dominoes game Mexican Train. There is a slight concern that Wendy has a learning disability, who knew? On Monday, the Dads took the kids to a Diamondbacks baseball game where they all claimed to have the time of their lives.
Tuesday we said goodbye to the Livingston family and our house seemed sadly empty. Fisher sobbed and sobbed for "Dylan-Emma" Tuesday night when he realized that Dylan was no longer on the Aero bed on the floor of his room, and Emma was not tucked in next to him. I kind of felt like sobbing too. We have wonderful memories and photos of their visit and great motivation to get the gang together again soon.
Ok, back to real life of chemo recovery for me and work for Nick. As always, I'll continue filling you in on our little world.
