I will miss our weekly walks and gossip sessions. She knew when to listen to me vent and when to tease me if I was overthinking something.
I am thankful that she remained comfortable until very recently. As her best friend, Lori, reminded me, Rochelle never once questioned "Why me?" and remained so positive. I have learned so much from her and to steal from Brooke, I am a better person for having known her.
Mike and I are going to walk on Rochelle's team, Jake's joggers, for a 5K the first weekend in November. If you would like to donate to Rochelle's Komen Race for the Cure team, please use the link: https://www.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=232528&lis=1&kntae232528=8DE6343CD41744B382355D4ABE891B93&supId=146322434

One of the best things about him is that he does tons of tourist stuff and loves it. Yes, we have been to the Drive-Thru tree in Northern California. Who could ever forget the drug bust we witnessed at the Meteor Crater? The first time I went to Graceland was with Mike and I am from West Tennessee.
Anyway, on one of our many trips to Florida, he insisted on going to this alligator farm. The main event was to see this huge alligator called Superman. The tour "guide" hands Mike the walkie talkie before heading in to the cage. He says "If anything happens, tell them Superman got me. You speak English, right?". Yep...fun trip. Anyway, everyone survived and on the way back to the bus, we were admiring lots of alligators just laying around sunning. Well, all of a sudden, one decided it wanted something and just took off. We both freaked...it was super quick and scared us to death.
Well, that's Ashley. She looks all innocent and babylike. She moves around a little but will still whine for one of us to pick her up. This all holds true until you open the dishwasher. She flies across the room and is in the dishwasher pulling out steak knives before you can do anything.

Ashley was very interested in Yago. I thought she was going to poke his eye out. She did kiss him (i.e. licked his face). He immediately started to cry. Of course, Mike thought that this would be a good lesson for Ashley - that she should never kiss boys. I disagree completely...but she will have to work on not scaring them off.

Ashley and I went on a trip to Covington this weekend with Nana and Papa. She saw Mema and Granddaddy (my Granddaddy - her great Granddaddy), Aunt Cathy, Nathan, and Paul. On my Dad's side, she saw Aunt Cindy and Uncle Glenn at Beau and Robert's basketball game at my old Elementary school. Everything seemed a lot smaller than it did when I went there. It was a K - 8 school that both my brother Clay and I went to. Do they even have those any longer?
Mike stayed in Nashville to watch the Vanderbilt Commodores beat the #1 Florida Gators. He had a fun time at the game. I didn't ask him if this made up for the Super Bowl...but it definitely helped him recover. We're hoping for an NCAA bid this year. My use of the word 'we' is a little misleading considering that I have not gotten to go to a single game this year. Any deals to be made over the tickets completely broke down when Mike thought it was reasonable to give me the non-conference games and he would take the conference ones. Of course, he's arguing with me now about it. He says that the conversation was more like this... "there are a few games that I won't give up". Thanks Mike..now I remember it. I said "Great. You take Kentucky and Tennessee...and I'll go to the South Carolina games." He failed to see that I was being facetious and thought that would be a great deal. We decided to make a different deal so I get to see movies with friends when there is something out that I want to see.
Today, we are both off work hanging out with Ashley. Maybe she'll let us take a nap this afternoon. Probably not. Right now, she keeps looking around for Nana who already left for Huntsville. Nana is the best. This weekend, she made her an impromptu rattle in the car with her empty Diet coke bottle and some pennies. When she was searching for the change, I was like "Um...we don't really let her play with pennies". "Thanks Beth". ;). The rattle was definitely a hit.

Ashley is currently 7 1/2 months old. She has just started crawling but is somewhat lazy about it. If we walk 20 feet away, she yells for us. If you place the remote controls 30 feet away, she will go after them. At least she's smart. Remote control...important enough to go get. Parents...not so much.
Cserno just returned from a business trip to San Francisco. He was gone for 8 days and was able to spend time with our friends, Steve and Salle. He was happy that he had a fellow 24 watcher in Salle.
Luckily, Ashley still remembered him. She wouldn't let him stray too far from her the next few days. Special thanks to Nana for helping to take care of Ashley. Between the two of us, we completely spoiled her and she got used to slumber parties at night. Cserno and I are now making her move back to the crib and have been pretty successful.
