its been a long time… the longest ever between posts i think. i am good…no major problems, just really busy.
the last weekend in June Coach & i headed out on vacation. (i will post some photos and the like later…i am sitting in the docs office typing on my i-hal…oops, i mean my i-pad)
First stop was Coach’s high school reunion -the 40th…eek! it was fun for him to see those people he was young with and i enjoyed meeting them…and the people watching was great!
second stop was a visit with Coach’s Aunt Ruth. we always love spending time with her. she has a really neat cement pond on her back porch….i’m guessing its about 8 ft x 12 ft….and full of the beautiful koi fish. i could sit out there for hours watching them.
third stop was back home with the family. we spent 6 days with my daughter’s family. so much fun! those grand-girls are a blast! and they are growing up too fast… the twins will be 9 soon, and the baby will be 5!
Dad is doing incredibly well. this time last year we were celebrating his post-op recovery and getting our minds wrapped around chemotherapy…. this year, he is cancer free…his hair is back, his weight is back, his color is good. and his mind-set is very good. Dad is back. he is an incredible fighter and has such strength!
my daughter is my best friend… we have such a strong bond…it amazes me. i miss them all dearly when we are apart. its typically 6 months between visits. thats a loooonnnggg time!
Coach & I returned home on the 6th of this month. and boy it was great to get home to our bed and the quiet routine of old folks LOL
i have managed the MS pretty well so the big trip didn’t kick my ass. there is a bit of recovery but not nearly as severe as in the past.
we are both back at work these days. Coach is gearing up for football season…time flies! i am working on preparedness things – research, plans, training, drills….same-o same-o
