GOOD THINGS THURSDAY
1) Whipping through the remainder of my project list at work and finishing up exactly when I had to be out the door to be...

2) Going to the airport to pick up my separated-at-birth-kindred-spirit-friend Kathey and her husband Russell, whom I haven't seen in 2.5 years (because they live in Sydney, Australia) and...

3) Bringing them home where they are going to be staying with us for a week and later...

4) Making a run to the 7-11 in Lund for BEN & JERRY's ice cream...
Russell: How many should we get?
Me: Four.
Russell: Four?!
Me: Well, there's four of us, right? *evil grin*...and then

5) eating bowls with 1 scoop each of Strawberry Peace Cake, Cherry Garcia, Cookie Dough and Double Fudge Something-Yummy-or-Other, while...

6) talking non-stop and catching up and just enjoying their company!

Tomorrow, we are having a party with lots of our good friends, so we have that to look forward to, too.

Oh! And more good things!

I talked to Angie today and they got test results back for Kristian and it seems that after 3 surgeries to remove lymph nodes they think they got all the cancerous tissue from the spread of the melanoma, AND the chemotherapy for the lymphoma is showing that he's responding and improving after 3 rounds. YAY!!

I know! I'm really happy that things seem to be moving in a positive direction finally. They were here last night for the party, and for a bald guy going through chemo, he looked and sounded great! :)

Great news, on all fronts!

Wow that is great news about your friend! And nothing better than being productive, and chatting with good friends over ice cream!

oops that was me.

Have loads of fun at your party!! It´s great to hear that everything is going well with you.

Barely skimmed because of time constraints, but your good things list looks great!

Great news about Kristian!

Glad you're having a great time with your company!

You have 7-11's?

Of course, they don't serve Slurpees. I didn't care for Slurpees while I was working at them, but now, they're okay to have every once in a while.

I LOVE Slurpees! I miss them on hot summer days :)

Yay to good outcomes and good friends--and good ice cream!!
