Anyway, won’t have my phone, so I won’t be able to check messages or this blog. I tried to use my laptop and connect via the hotspot on the way to
but trying to read anything on the laptop screen when the sun is shining on it
is pretty much impossible. That, and the laptop just gets me HOT. I have enough
trouble with hot flashes as it is. Austin
Of course, driving north, I might want some warmth, huh? I’ve heard it was kind of cold back home. Guess I’ll find out soon enough.
was WONDERFUL, though. Sunny and warm. The warm probably wasn’t so good for the
footy players, but I enjoyed it. As for the tournament… Austin
My daughter’s team won their first game, lost their second game just as time ran out, and got their socks knocked off in their third game by the eventual winners of their division (although my daughter was kind of proud that they scored the most points against that team – 12). They performed much better as a team this year than last, when they lost all their games and scored a total of 1 point. Yeah, you read that right.
Oh, and my daughter did NOT break her foot again. Just don’t ask about her ankle. I know I’m afraid to.
I was able to meet up with Meg Gardiner Saturday for dinner. She’s not only one
of my favorite authors, we went to the same high school, having graduated the
same year, even. We lived a couple of blocks from each other (my parents and
her mother still do!), but never hooked up in school (although our sisters were
friends). We met several years ago when she was in Austin Dayton
for a book signing (she was living in at the time). Since then
I’ve been England stalking following her via her blog and Facebook. J
And I’ve read ALL her books. You should too. They’re great reads.
It was so neat to talk to her and I’m so glad we were able to finally get together (I tried when I discovered she was in Santa Barbara the same time I was in March 2014, but it didn’t work out).
This is going to be a busy week for me, and one that won’t involve a lot of writing. After we get home on Tuesday, we get to leave bright and early on Wednesday for the first of my pre-surgery appointments, when I get another EKG and echocardiogram. But the not-so-fun thing is the heart catheterization on Thursday. Supposed to determine how much they’ll cut me during surgery (if I have any heart blockages or something like that). Since I have appointments on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we’re just staying up in Cleveland Wed & Thu nights. I’m hoping we’ll be able to leave early enough on Friday so we can make the Wayne HS football game at 7pm. I’d like to go to the game. We’re still undefeated!!
Oh, and in case you were wondering, it’s about a 3-hour drive (depending on traffic). I can’t imagine what that drive will feel like in November. **groan**
I think that’s what scares me the most: how much pain will I feel? I don’t want to get hooked on pain meds or anything like that. I hate taking pills!
Still… I feel the same facing this surgery as I did when I was pregnant with our first born. Not looking forward to all the pain, but knowing there was no way around it. J
Thanks for sticking around. I’ll reply to comments (if any) eventually (probably Tuesday). Happy Monday!
