Busy busy busy

Jason and I have been busy lately. We're still getting a few things finished up in the basement-like the bar and the steps as well as "finding" things that we haven't seen since we moved (the things were still in boxes). We've also completed (FINALLY) the refinancing of our home-we started in April and just signed the papers on Monday, July 20th! Plus there's all the packing we need to do for our upcoming trip to Wonderful Copenhagen and Northern Europe. I'm excited about seeing new places where I do NOT know the languages but we shouldn't have any problems since the Scandinavian countries use English quite a bit too.

As if that weren't enough, we also purchased a new vehicle. We replaced the Rav-4 with a CRV. It's really nice...we got leather seats so come Winter, the butt warmers will come in handy (especially since La Nina is back again-more snow than usual????). For a treat the other night, Jason and I went to Chik-Fil-A for milkshakes. The guy in the drive thru window asked what year the car was because he could SMELL the newness from inside Chik-Fil-A! Oh my...

Lastly, Mom called yesterday afternoon to say that her doctor called and that she needed to go to the emergency room because her potassium levels were extremely high and her kidney functions were low. So off we went to the emergency room (Thank you Aunt Sharon and Uncle Tony for taking her!!!!) to wait for the test results. The doctor came in around 8pm to say that they think the only problem is some of the medication Mom was taking was causing the fluid build up in her abdomen (making her look pregnant-I don't need another sibling at this point in my life!!!). So, they admitted her and gave her a fluid drip (we think so she stays hydrated) and a brownish liquid to drink to help lower the potassium levels, which had gone down since the original blood work was done. There did not seem to be anything else wrong (THANK GOD!) and I will be heading back to the hospital this afternoon to see what else is happening and keep everyone posted.
