We finally made it.
This afternoon everyone went in different directions.
Danny and I tried to get to the “big pool”. Not so much a good idea.
So, we came back home. Chilled for a bit. Had a huge lunch and more CoQ10….
And we tried again.
This time we were more successful.
We entered the pool easily, swam in the deep end for an hour (phew, I don’t know about Danny, but I am tired), and exited beautifully after an hour.
Tomorrow we repeat.
Hopefully without the rain on our heads.
and Hugh insisted I go out and find a new treasure.
I found two.
A $10 chandelier.
I removed the wiring…added $1 landscape solar lights, scotch guarded the shades and…
A little bit of paint and distressing to bring those colors back out and now it’s home.
And there’s still time to hit the pool. Maybe Danny will consent.
Hugh’s office is updating some of its electronics, so he brought us home a new to us totally discarded by the office monitor for Danny’s desktop…..it’s flipping ginormous
….if you want to swim, we have to go to the little pool…what do you think buddy? Feel like swimming?”
He had it to himself.
Happy happy summer!!!!
We have fledglings.
Even Kate who has been teasing me incessantly the last couple of weeks did the “oh, he’s so cute” when peaking at the little bids that now call our front bushes home.
we have one baby that is maybe a day older than the others. A day is a long time in a baby robin’s life.
(These are the babies now. No room to hang out past the worm delivery for momma robin.)
Not going to lie, as much fun as it’s been to have them, I’m ready to be able to hang on my porch without fear of the dive bomb.
The amount of time it takes to get things done sometimes can be frustrating.
But, you learn to adapt.
Last summer, we realized that Danny was well on his way to out growing the adaptive jogging stroller we have used and loved for almost seven years.
So I started researching. Once I found one that met most of our needs…then it was time to gather letters of medical necessity….then my appointment for allocating some of Danny’s budget…then the appointment with the durable medical equipment….the paperwork there…the denial….the funding….and finally…voila….
Almost a year later and we are on our way to Starbucks for breakfast.
….with Hugh leaving for a ten hour drive to Iowa at 4:00am on Monday so he makes it in time for his uncles funeral????
While it was too cold and rainy to break in the new back garden dining set…we totally adapted.
It helped that we blew through 5 or 6 bottles of wine.
And the plans we made….
I think I agreed to run a half and a field trip to celebrate Vicki’s next birthday????
