I should be in Minnesota right now for the General Mills Eat & Greet….

But I am not.


I woke up at 4 AM, and headed to the airport at 5AM. I was sitting in line at US Airways ready to check Sarah and I in and I received a phone call from my husband

“My dad had a seizure this morning”

After talking it over with my Husband and not know what was going on with his dad, (whom of which I am very close to) we decided it would be best for me to stay home instead of going to the Eat and Greet.

and boy and I so upset. I am so upset because of what is going on with my FIL, and they still don’t know what is going on, and so upset that after everything that happened I couldn’t go!




Just so you know my FIL had open heart surgery 3 years ago, and had a pacemaker put in. They don’t know if the seizure was caused by the pacemaker going all wacky.
