The Texans are in the air and will land in Tampa around 9:30. Usually we pick them up…drive up in two cars and hand over one, complete with carseats and booster seats, to Erin and Brent and drive the other one back home. This time, though, Erin and Brent were worried about my driving to Tampa, especially at night, so Brent searched and got a great deal on a car rental. God bless them both. We could have gone to Tampa…I’m not as helpless as they think I am…but this is nice…just relaxing at home waiting for their arrival.
The weather isn’t promising…tomorrow we have thunder showers all day. The rest of the week might be better. Hope so. All the kids really want to do is beach and pool (and kayaking with yellow boats!)
All’s well here. I’m hanging in there. I’m constantly drinking my smoothies or Ensure. Ice cream is great too. Everything else…well, on good days (like today) everything else is fine, too. On bad days, well, nothing goes. And then I get mighty frustrated…until the next day when all is well.
Yoga is still wonderful. And I went to Book Club yesterday at the local library. It’s an amazing group of women who actually discuss the book for 90 minutes. This month we read Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo. What a shocker that book was. It took my breath away. I was horrified…not so much at the poverty but at the corruption within the police department and charity organizations. It’s hard to read a book like this but I think we need to know what’s going on.
