Well, we’re back again. Flew into Houston this evening and plan to leave on Tuesday afternoon after the doctor tells me I’m just fine. He will tell me that, right?
Uneventful flight except it was FREEZING on the plane. Lucky me…I had a shawl with me that I use when I’m going out to dinner and it’s chilly (thanks, Kate) and Jerry and I looked like two old people (we aren’t old, are we?) with the shawl across our laps. There was something wrong with the plane’s heating/cooling system. The flight attendants came around with tea and coffee to warm people up. Then the heat kicked in and they asked us all to turn on our little blower things…good thing everyone was in a good mood. They welcomed us to Houston and told us they hoped we’d enjoy the weather here more than the weather on the plane.
We’re heading over to Anderson bright and early tomorrow for blood work and a CT scan. And then, on Tuesday for a meeting with the doctor. And then we’ll go see Sean and Carly….yay.
I was reading The Goldfinch on the plane (rereading, actually) It’s our book club selection for April. I read it awhile ago…loved the beginning, hated the middle, liked the ending. Thought it was entirely too long. Guess I’ll get through the beginning again (I’m remembering why I loved it) and skip the middle and read the end (not enough time to reread the whole thing…too many other books on my Kindle at the moment) And I’m listening to The Whites….a new NYC crime novel that I heard about on NPR…just started it…not sure I like it but so far, so good.
By the time Jerry and I get back to Florida, the streets will seem deserted. Snowbird season is coming to an end. I can already see a dramatic difference on the roads. I went to Costco in Sarasota last week and there was NO TRAFFIC going or coming home. Couldn’t believe it. While I love seeing fewer cars and being able to find a parking space at the beach and at the grocery store and getting into a restaurant without waiting for hours, I have mixed feelings about the season ending. I have lots of friends who are heading north…and won’t see again until next winter. Hard to say goodbye…Thank heavens for email!
Love to all of you…Fingers crossed. Looking for a NEC (no evidence of cancer) yet again!
