Wednesday was quiet. After Tuesday’s bad news we were both weary and uninspired. But late Tuesday evening the phone rang again to say that our worst fears were realized and that a dear soul had succumbed to liver failure and was no longer with us. It was another sobering moment — a reminder that life is precious.
I can’t say we’re having a ‘good time.’ But I will say this is a good place for us to be at the moment. No running needing to be done; it’s a time we can both be alone (together) with our thoughts.
We talked about Peg hopping a plane to attend the funeral on Saturday and she decided against that; the logistics were just to complicated for a destination too far from the available airports.
We’re going to have to visit some repair shop some place along the way. Our 11 year old Microwave is acting up. It still microwaves, but regardless the time we set it for it turns itself off at 60 seconds as if you had opened the door and waits for you to hit the start button again. The repair should be covered under our extended service plan but we need to find a shop we trust and that can get the job done within our 2 week stay cycles. We don’t use that a lot, so if need be we can wait until we’re in Milwaukee for 1 month.
It’s always something. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
