Apologies and New beginnings

First, I have to apologize for not posting at all for such a long time! These kids being home for the summer is kicking my butt. So, some updates, #1 is that Senior graduated from high school and turned 18. So, technically he's not a Senior anymore. I should have seen that coming, huh? I'm going to have to think this over... #2 is TGH and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. What a milestone! The sad part was that neither of us even remembered it was our anniversary unti about 10 o'clock that morning. We were all obsessed with the fact the the freezer didn't seem to be freezing. Our breakfast conversation consisted of whether or not to vacuum the coils with the shop vac or the vacuum. Romantic, eh? I hope we kissed...I don't remember exactly. Cub Scout had a pack meeting that night and the older kids had church youth activities, so by the time we actually got to see each other AND remembered the anniversary, it was after 8pm. We fled to our favorite taco shop and held hands over pico de gallo and refried beans. Ok, what else is new? #6, our special needs son, had a grand mal seizure that lasted 20 minutes this past weekend. Very scary. We had to take him to the er and then spent the night at the hospital, waiting for his temperature and his white cell count to come down. He's home now, and we are trying to decide if putting him on a long-term anti-convulsant is the right thing for him. So, there's a few summer updates. Like my sister, I too have zucchinis galore and am using them with reckless abandon. I plan to can some relish with them shortly. More on that later. By the way, let's call Senior....Alex.
