An Update from Mama

After a longer-than-expected inpatient stay, Sarah Kate was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon. I apologize for not providing an update sooner but exhaustion and craziness have gotten in the way.

It’s October 3rd.

I was 13 years old when “Mean Girls” was released in movie theaters. Since then, every year when October 3rd rolls around I find myself wishing I was in calculus class, with a hunky guy named Aaron sitting in the desk in front of me. In my daydream, Aaron would turn around to face me, asking, “What day is it?” to which I would eagerly reply, “It’s October 3rd”.

This year, however, I have something much, much better to do on October 3rd.

Last Thursday I received an exciting surprise. I had been waiting to hear from a doctor’s office in Rhode Island to schedule a consultation. Well, Thursday they called to say that Dr. Chopra could see me either October 3rd or December 10th. So of course I snatched up the October 3rd slot!

I Believe in Miracles!- A Journal Post

So. Are you psyched? Because guess what… I am TOTALLY psyched! Yesterday was a party over here at the Frey household. Isn’t it always a party, though? On this day in particular, however, we celebrated three exciting occasions. April 17th is one of my favorite days ever, purely because it is my big sister Krista’s birthday! She is a lovely girl after all, one of the supreme blessings in my life!

In 1991, the 17th of April was almost certain to be doubly special, as yours truly was expected to enter the scene on that very date. But it will come as no surprise to you that even then I had a mind of my own. To build suspense, I opted to be “fashionably late” and refrained from making my grand premiere until April the 25th. Additionally I am a pretty fair sharer now that I have had time to mature a bit, but honestly, it was probably best for all involved that I had my own special day when I was a tiny moppet.
