Getting back in the groove after a vacation usually takes a couple of days. So many things to catch up on, the mail, groceries, laundry, just life getting back to normal. That was happening just fine, but Sunday was a bit of a downer after church because our faithful and loving pet sitters informed us they wouldn't be able to keep Trudy for us any more. It's just too hard for them to see her in her condition. They really made me feel guilty for not putting Trudy down. DH and I are not ready for that, and as long as she is able to function, we just love her and take care of her. Our vet assures us she is all right except for the dementia.
Monday was better. We got a call from Amy wanting to know if we were getting our bearings and whether we were ready for grandkids!!! Bring it!!! We had lunch with Amy and the kids and then Kate stayed to spend the night. It had already been decided Kate would stay Monday and then Jack could stay with us later in the week. Poor Jack. He cried and cried. It broke my heart.
Great time with Kate. I took her to the new park DH and I had found.
So, looking for other things to do, I thought I'd fix a cup of coffee. Nope! Can't do that. Went to the laundry room to put laundry in the dryer. Oops. Went in the bathroom, flipped on the light. Still darkness. Lol. So silly. I think I'll sit by the window for a while. The chair requires no power to hold me and the light at the window is great for reading. Having an iPad simplifies things a bit, too.
Finally, around noon, I had a shower, cleaned up, and we all met for Mexican food at Posada's and then went bowling. It was a fun time for all and I didn't do too bad for a person who has probably bowled a total of 15 times in my life! We really enjoyed it and the kids did fine for their first time ever. My pics at the bowling alley weren't that good.
Now here is a happy pic of the guy who came home with us after bowling.
Love this sweet boy! He melts my heart every time.
This morning I had my visit with the eye doctor for an exam to see about removing the scar tissue from my lens. Wow, immediately following the exam they did the procedure and hopefully by tomorrow, my eyesight will be back to its greatness and I can ditch the glasses again. That's the plan!
