He graduated last summer. ;). I do know about chemo brain!
The upcoming event is son and family arriving here in 13 days!!!! Then daughter and family arriving in 17 days! They overlap by 2 nights so the house will be seriously chaotic but I am soooooo looking forward to it. :D

Sounds like a wonderful get together with your family, celebrate Spring and Easter and just being together! Bring on the chaos and surround yourself with all your loved ones :)
