Shout Out to My Boo

I just wanted to give a quick shout-out here to Alessandro.  Today he successfully* completed a 5 day course of steroids.  As you all know, this is not our first time on the steroid train, but it was the first time he's had steroids while being scooter-bound, so it was a very different experience.

We celebrated tonight with cake.  

And I would like to take this opportunity to remind you all how handsome my husband is in case you forgot. These photos are from last Summer, but better late than never.  Al looks the same except his hair is shorter right now, which reminds me that holding off on a haircut might not be the worse thing in the world.   

Alessandro, you go boy!

*Successfully = the I.V. lock did not dislodge and no infections at the site.  Booyah.  


Summer in the D - Bucket List Style

I have an anxious feeling that this Summer is going to pass me by this year, even though it really has only just begun.  There is so much I want to do and I don't know if there's enough time.  So instead of going outside and experiencing this warm Summer evening, I thought I'd stew about it here in front of my computer screen. Yeah, good plan. 

Here's what I need to experience this Summer, organized for my convenience: 

  • Walk through Eastern Market for sushi or pizza and dessert (I have been talking about doing this for the longest time.  Al just smiles and nods).
  • Go for walks or go swimming after dinner 
  • Movie Night in the Park on the Detroit Riverfront (Tue July 8 or Thu August 21)
  • Wednesday Night at the Movies at New Center Park - Casablanca (June 18), Jurassic Park (June 25), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (July 30), The Breakfast Club (August 20), 2001:  A Space Odyssey (August 27).
  • Kayaking on the Detroit River courtesy of Detroit River Sports (Sundays)
  • Ride the Cut with CJ
  • Go swimming with the nieces and nephews
  • Boys Night Sleepover with Saverio and CJ 
  • Girls Night Sleepover with Ava, Maya, Victoria and Francesca 
  • Jazz Fest (August 29 - September 1)
  • Bike rides, bike rides, bike rides
  • Walk the Isle with my Auntie

Sounds like an excellent Summer to me. 

And here are other bucket lists of the past.
