This has been the fastest week ever. But yet at the same time, last Monday seems like it was ages ago.
Update: Grandma is doing about the same - if not a little but better today. Her swelling has gone down some and she is breathing a lot better.
Rick and I had a good but very tiring week in Richmond. We didn't really do much except look in stores for things and ways we want to decorate our future house. We have some many ideas floating around in our heads that it gets frustrating! :0)
On our way home yesterday, we stopped at the WV State Fair. I love fairs! It was so much fun to walk around and look at all the 4-H stuff and show Rick some of the stuff that I used to show. Mikey and Rebecca came up for part of the night. We watched the horse show for a few minutes, ate some yummy food, milked a cow, watched a goat show and walked around the animal barns. On the way home Rebecca rode with me and we got some good talking in about life, food and books.
My in-laws and sister-in-law and the baby went back to Pittsburgh for the weekend. So it is just Rick, Mikey and I in the house. It is kinda nice having the house to ourselves. Definitely a lot quieter! The dogs know something is not right, they are being very clingy and mopping around. Charlie dog kept trying to get into bed with Rick and I last night - there is not room in that full size bed for 2 people and a greyhound!
Today the daycare is having a big carnival to celebrate their 20th anniversary and to raise money for the new bus they have to buy. Rick was asked to sit in the dunking tank. :0) Don't worry, I will take pictures! After that we are going out to the farm and Rebecca is going to thin my hair out again (I hate having thick hair in the summer!) and she is also going to cut Rick's hair. It is so nice having her around now - and cheaper! :0)
We have been asked to go to Pittsburgh next weekend to help out with stuff. Rick and I are not making any definitive plans cause we want to be able to go to Pittsburgh at a moments notice. We pretty much have our schedule cleared till September. We have stuff and places that we want to do but we are ready not to do them and we are not committing ourselves to anything.
Seven whole days with no soda pop. Nothing carbonated has passed through my lips. My body feels so much better without that junk!
