Sister Sue / US Open Tennis / WORK / Cirque!!! / Colin Kitty 
summer - tennis
First, Happy 'Birthday' to Colin Kitty! Actually, we don't really know his birthday -- but 11 years ago (in 2006) we brought home Colin on this day (also a Wednesday). The vet said he was probably five months old at the time. He's such a GOOD cat!!!

Today was both good -- and BAD -- with sister Sue. If I'm being honest, Marilyn and I are pretty set in our ways. It's not easy for us to share space with anyone else. And if we're busy and under stress, that's even more difficult. And I was totally honest with Sue about that. Plus she gets it. Interestingly enough, we probably share more with her now than at any other time in our lives. Generally speaking, Sue has very different tastes and concerns than either of us. Regardless, we three are close, and are pushing through as best we can... LOVE always helps when things are especially hard. (There's a lot between the lines. More later.)

I struggled to get my work done today. The circumstances were far from ideal. I need a certain amount of quiet to concentrate on complicated work. It took much longer than usual to get things done.

I did, however, finally write out the Auto Attendant instructions! And then coded them (HTML) and uploaded them.

And I contacted Wanda and worked through these.

Maria Sharapova WON another match at the US Open today! (woo hoo) We also were glad to see Venus Williams win.

Cirque exceeded all expectations!!! It was WONDERFUL and magical! I'm so glad we went! We sat with Rich and Merlin, Jeff, Carol, Aisha and Brian -- and Angel and Kathy were way down in the end of our row.

Aisha started 8th grade today! Hard to believe! (We knew her in the womb...)

Tired! When people stay with us (here or at the beach) I'm up and down over and over to 'check' on them (I can't stop myself).

Big breakfast event early tomorrow! Must get some sleep NOW!

Sweet dreams.

I admire you for welcoming Sue into your home. It's always hard to adjust to a situation like that.

Hope things work out well for all three of you!
