Weird Week

This has definitely been a very weird week. I am glad to say that it has come to an end. We started the week in fear that our dear friend, Fran, might have cancer. We were thrilled beyond words when we found out that she does not have cancer. Praise God for that news.
I have been coughing for about 7 weeks now. This week it got much worse. I have been coughing like a heavy chain smoker and I have never even smoked.
Wednesday, Shane's office was broken into and his computer stolen. We believe that it was stolen from someone we know. Reno pd didn't even take fingerprints so we may never know. That put a damper on the week.
Thursday, we got news that one of my former student's dad was killed in the helicopter crash in Iraq. He was someone that I had gotten to know. His family is precious with his wife, Melanie, and their 4 girls. It has been very sad. Living near and teaching at the world's largest military base for 14+ years should have prepared me for this but I have been so blessed to not have this happen before. Pray for the Mason family. They will need God's strength and peace throughout the coming months.
The weather has been nice here. Loving the cooler weather.
Still coughing a lot but going to keep on kicking. We are headed to a day out with friends. Shane is going to hang out with his buddy Ed and the kids and I are gonna do a little shopping.
