the Steelers loss. I know I don't have to tell you that I was not very happy with the outcome of Saturday nights game. The Steelers are beat up. They have much work to do this off season with replacing offensive lineman and special team. Big Ben needs to remove that stickem from his throwing hand so he can learn how to get rid of the ball a little quicker.. OK, I'm off my soap box now back to real life... :D
We had a pretty good day yesterday. The special person I mentioned yesterday was none other than "Hanna Montana". For those of you who don't know who she is, her real name is Miley Cyrus. If the name Cyrus sounds familiar that is because she is the daughter of "Billy Ray Cyrus" who sang (Achy Breaky Heart) back in the 90's. Her tickets are one of the hardest tickets to get right now. Anyway, she is in DC to do a show at the Verizon Center tonight. Now I have to be honest with you, until the ride home from the hospital yesterday I've never heard Miley sing. She gave Justin and Abby one of her new double CDs. She came by on her day off to see the kids at the hospital. This was by no means a publicity stunt. She wanted no press there and we were not aloud to bring anyone besides parents and siblings. She posed for pictures with everyone and signed autographs down at the clinic. Cody had to get his blood work done so he didn't get to see her down there. Diane took him up so they could start that while I watched the other two. As soon as pictures were taken with Hanna we went up to the room to wait for Cody's stuff to get finished. We were only up there for a few minutes before Hanna and her group made their way up to the floor where the patients were. She stopped by every room and posed for pictures and even put a gown and mask on for patients who were in isolation. When she got to Cody's room he was hiding under his pillow. He was playing hard to get and Miley loved it. Her mother was with her and she turned to her mother laughing. She said, "this is how all the boys act around me mom." Everyone laughed as I wrestled Cody to get a picture with her. Miley and her mother are very nice and down to earth. At a time when you read about Briteny and all the other famous stars getting into trouble it was very refreshing to meet Miley. Like I said, she wasn't doing this for a photo op. Speaking of photos, I forgot my camera because we were rushed to get there on time. Luckily they are going to get me a CD with all the photos on it and I will post them as soon as I can. I was telling my kids on the way home yesterday how lucky they were. I told them that "people are paying literally thousands of dollars to go see this girl sing and will only get within 100 feet of her. You guys got to touch her and have your picture taken with her." A pretty good day huh?
Still no word on when we are heading up to NY. I guess we will hear more today or tomorrow when I take him into the clinic. I will be sure to let you all know....
Thanks for reading..
