Trip Across the Country

There has been a lot happening here since I last wrote.  I went to Friday morning mass to see Maria serve.  I bowed in front of the alter and went to turn.  As I turned my foot came out of my sandal, then down I went.  It all happened like I was in slow motion.  I was trying to grab the pew with one hand.  The other hand went behind me to try to catch myself.  I fell on the ball of my hand.  I went home and David left for work.  I took the neighbor shopping but when we got home my hand was killing me. David got me to the doctor.  I broke my wrist,  to be exact it is a scaphoid fracture in the wrist.  I had to wear a splint for a week and a half.  Now I am in a cast that keeps my thumb from moving.  It will come off on January 12 when we get home.

I had to finish making the Christmas presents which was kind of hard with one hand.  They are all done and ready to go.

We went to pick up our motorhome, Merida, and it wouldn’t start.  David ended up replacing all 3 batteries.  What a difference it made.

I got her loaded up yesterday with some help from Christina and Maria.  We just have a few things to load today before we leave on our trip to spend Christmas with Sarah and Steve’s family.  Also, Cade and his daughter, Brodie, will be moving back to York with us.

We are excited about our long trip.  We will be making some side trips to checkout different things.  The first main stop will be Mount Rushmore.  It will take us a couple days to get there.  We don’t want to drive to long, 6 to 8 hours a day is what we are trying to do.  Of course, if we see something to go check out it might be shorter or longer.

We will be leaving this morning.

I will try to post when I can.

Thanks for stopping by!

Flat Ole Hippies in Gig Harbor

We got to go with our friend to Gig Harbor to take care of her daughter after her foot surgery.DSC_0582

Sarah still has to go for 3 more weeks in her cast with no weight bearing.

Cindy had to do the cooking and cleaning which her son loved because he didn’t have to do it.DSC_0583

We didn’t get to take a picture with her son in law, Steve, because he was gone to work.  Cade was taking his Mom to the airport after she got the kids off to school.

 

Brodie, Willow and Meadow are such cute and fun kids as you can tell in this last picture.DSC_0586

It was so much fun getting to know some more of Cindy’s family.

We had a great time in Gig Harbor on the Key Peninsula.  Thanks for taking us.
