Friday evening was spent drinking away a ridiculously weird and not so great work week and going to bed early due to an increasing headache that was probably encouraged by the mentioned adult beverages.
Saturday was thrown off a little. Something came up in the morning and unfortunately I did not make it to my friend Courtney's baby shower. Luckily the afternoon turned around and I did find myself laying out at my Aunt and Uncle's pool with Maddy and my Mom.
The rest of my weekend was spent hanging out with Miss Mariah. I seriously could not believe this girl's progress in the last two weeks. She is getting herself out of bed, dressing herself and so much more! Oh and her skin grafts are healing very nicely which is wonderful. I also got to be the third wheel on a little date she had with this really nice boy on Saturday night. We all three spent the evening outside talking about everything you could think of. I was so happy for Mariah because this is definitely something I have been praying for for her that she is able to find a man who can accept her for the pay she is and support her every day! Although this guy may not be the one God has planned for her to spend the rest of her life with he is very sweet and has good intentions of being by her side through all of this. We ended up calling it a night pretty early and then spent Sunday just having a bum day since it was rainy and crappy outside.
Thursday is Miss Mariah's 20th birthday and you can bet that we are going to be celebrating up at the hospital when everyone is off work with all of our closest family and friends. We are so thankful to be able to celebrate another birthday with this strong, beautiful, young lady who has so much coming for her!
The rest of my week is going to be spent getting ready to leave for our vacation to Charleston, SC Friday night and just getting through this work week. Ahh cannot wait to be on the beach again!!!
