We’ve been out of town and so I’ve not been around this week. I did have several good Xanga digest emails of my subscriptions waiting for me in my inbox and I enjoyed “catching up” with everyone. My grandfather in VA was in the ICU on the verge of death and so I packed up the boys for a 14-hour car ride to visit. You never know when it will be the last visit. I even packed funeral clothes for all of us. Thankfully, God was merciful and Pop is now out of the hospital even! He is still on oxygen, but improving (he has non-lymphocytic leukemia and got pneumonia on top of that). He was glad that we had come and we enjoyed seeing him and all of the rest of my family that lives there. (My parents, two aunts and their families, and my grandparents all have moved back to live in the city where I grew up.)
So, my only life observations at this point involve all of the reasons not to try to drive 14 hours solo with a 2 year old and 11 month old!!! I am GLAD to be home!!!
