Sorry I was absent this past week.  I've taken lots of pics, but I was actually just pretty busy on my days off -- Tuesday I had a luncheon at work celebrating my (and other cast members'!) 5 years with Disney.  Then Wednesday I had to take my car in for an oil change and was out most of the afternoon as well.

Then Thursday night I received some very scary news.  My grandma had a heart attack and was in the hospital.  I was really scared, but she's doing okay now.  They're keeping her in the hospital for a few more days at least to run tests and to make sure her blood pressure stays under control (it had been 200+ over 100+).  I talked to her yesterday and she sounded cohesive, just very tired.  

I'm just trying to think positively about the whole thing.  I adore my grandma -- she's loud, eccentric,  and has stories about nearly everything she owns.  I think she's a bit misunderstood in my extended family sometimes, but I've always felt like she and I are kindred spirits of sorts. I'm a bit oddball myself, if you hadn't guessed! ;)

I think my grandma, along with my parents, has really helped teach me how important it is to embrace who are -- and to always hold your family close to your heart. 

No matter what happens, I hope she knows how much I love and adore her. 

Thanks for reading - love you guys. :)
