My Weekend

My weekend was quite interesting. At noon on Thursday, Patricia, Deb and I took off for Slater, Iowa. We were staying with My brother,Mark and his wife, Mary Lynn.We were going to Van and Bonnie's Chocolate Breakfast Friday morning.

We were getting ready to go out to eat,and Deb ran up stairs to get her coat. On the way down she missed the bottom step and fell. She broke a small bone in the bottom of her ankle. We loaded her in the van and took her to Urgent Care in Ankeny. Deb was such a trooper. Other than a "wince" on her face occasionally she was laughing and carrying on like she was fine, BUT we know she was hurting.Can you see FIVE people taking one lady into this office. I bet we were a sight. Deb had a good night (with the help of some pain meds)The next morning she went back to the pharmacy to be fitted for a fashionable boot, which she will have to wear for 4 weeks. We got her home Saturday afternoon and she is doing well,considering.
Deb and Patricia insisted that Mary Lynn and I go on to the choclate breakfast SO.... we did....
We left the house at 6:30 and when we got there we stood outside for about 20 minutes then inside for another half hour. The crowd was double what they had anticipated... Wonderful chocolate !! Oh, my goodness! It was very crowded but still a lot of fun !!!! We were there for about an hour sampling. The highlight for me was seeing Van and Bonnie. I have listened to them for YEARS and it is always fun to see them in person !!!! I even saw a couple of friends too!!!

It was especially fun to see Van and Bonnie again. I told them about Deb and her fall and they made it a point to tell me to tell her that they missed her. It would have been much nicer to have Deb and Patricia with us but still was a lot of fun! Hope to do it again sometime.
