Not what she had planned

Life throws a curve at you every now and then, and one was thrown in my daughter's life yesterday. After complaining of abdominal pain the past two days, a trip to the doctor's office yesterday resulted in an appendectomy. Shown here prior to the surgery, she wasn't quite so cheerful afterwards.

Fortunately, she had no complications and it wasn't ruptured, but this throws a real monkey wrench into her plans. Due to the circumstances involved, laproscopy wasn't an option, so she gets to sport a nice incision and scar for the rest of her life.

In the next week she had to finish a routine for her skating show, get ready for the start of track practice, and prepare for a major test at school. Not to mention having a full work schedule for this weekend. Guess things don't always go as planned.

Prom time?

Ahh, it's that time of year when young teenage girls beg their parents to spend far more than they should on a dress for the prom. Even though it's many months away, you can't plan too early on what to wear. Judging from the one my younger daughter has selected, styles have changed some...

Her date and current boyfriend is going to have to wear a white tux with a pink cumberbund. My thought was that he could pretty much wear any color tux and they'd match.
