The first week was incredibly busy. There was an illness in the family, so I was busy running back and forth from my house to theirs, trying to be helpful but thinking that I am in the way. Then, there were all the doctors who missed us while we were gone. Isn't it funny that now a regular visit is really two visits, one for blood work and one to see the Dr. So two days screwed up. If you get your eyes dilated that is two people who have their days taken over.We still have a cardiologist to visit and a dog groomer.
But Thank you, Lord. We are in good health. We have good insurance and wonderful supportive family.
The weather has been typical for this time of the year in Charleston....rainy, beautiful, cool, warm windy, humid. You name it we have it.
I have been busy downloading pictures to my computer. I want to make one of those picture albums from our trip, but how many pictures of sunset and cactus do I include?
We are planning to sell our condo and buy a house.o We would like one with no HOA.. But to buy a house without a HOA means probably buying either way out in the country or buying in an old neighborhood. I do not want to live thirty miles from the nearest grocery, doctor, etc. and I don't want to live in a construction zone as we redo an older home.I have lived with both of those options and really don't want to experience it again.
For now I think I just want to think about our trip and how fortunate we were to see:
|The Mississippi River. It had ice and snow in it.|
|The Gateway Arch in St. Louis|
|The friendliest goat, ever.|
