Tell you what, it’s been a whirlwind around here the past couple of days. Lots of it’s been fun, but there has also been challenging stuff.
Kathleen, Lee, and I have made a kind of unspoken pact to just go with the flow as our plans constantly shift due to weird circumstances. We’ve just been trying to start a business, deal with an elder care challenge, and remodel a building.
But all sorts of paperwork issues, legal surprises, scallywaggery (I made that up), illnesses, and twists and turns have meant schedules and priorities change at a moment’s notice. I’m proud of how patient we’ve been, though I think I could do better.
I’m glad we’ve had a chance to hang out with empathetic friends. That’s helped, so hooray for volunteers. And working with the MTOL folks today helped me deal with family stress. Kathleen ordered us shirts for the new business. We like to be busy. It helps us cope.
And we have friends to help us work! Eva, the family caregiver, brought her son Joe to help the ever-ready Mike tear down more of the ceiling today. For someone who’s fourteen, he has a heck of a work ethic.
After doing blog work this afternoon, Eva, Joe and I drove around Cameron and looked at the sights. I even went down an unfamiliar road!
The best thing was that I remembered to stop and look at this thing I saw on the side of the road. Wow. You really wonder how this happened.
Where did the head go? How did the rest of the skeleton stay intact? A mystery.
