I didn't mean not to post for so long. Life is not that busy, so I guess it means that I'm that lazy! I have been reading a lot - I'll try to post those on the book page. I've also been taking care of the parents. Mom is doing great! This new technique they used has done amazing things! Here it is, just over two weeks past her new knee being put in and she is off her walker - and even her cane! She walks around with no pain. She is still working on bending her knee to the fullest extent. We think she has about three more week do physical therapy. This time around is just so much faster than the last one!
Drew drove over late Thursday night. Friday after mom's PT session, we drove down to the Lake. We invited the parents to come along, but Mom didn't think she was ready for a two-hour car ride - and I'm sure she and dad were ready for some no-kid time.
I so understand.
On both counts.
The Lake was wonderful as always. Drew was able to catch up with family members as well as old friends. I have come to the conclusion that I really need to pay attention to every one's names...and remember them. Now that we'll be seeing them often instead of once every few years!
On Saturday the Lake held it's annual Flotilla and fireworks - as always - so much fun. The best part? Not nearly as hot as it has been for the last two years. Saturday we have to drive three hours to pick up my mini-van. And back. But it was well worth it. We knew what kind we wanted and it took my brother-in-law (who owns a car dealership) a few days to find one, but he did - we just had to go and get it. But like I said: well worth it.
So, since we did have a second car we packed up our things on Sunday and drove to our new house. I actually got to spend two nights in my new house before the kids and I returned to Mom's.
And more importantly -spent the night in my king-size sleigh bed that's been in storage for three years. With my favorite pillow.
Ah....home. So nice.
I'm hoping to get to go back next week when (I hope and pray!) the rest of our possessions will arrive.
