Family

Dangit! LJ has been down all day. Now that I’m about to leave to take the girls to camp, it’s up. Of course.

Not that I had any­thing earth-shat­ter­ing to say. Most of what I’ve been mulling over in the past day or two has gone into pri­vate entries. Geez, using it as an actu­al journal/diary, who woul­da thunk it?


I’m a lit­tle down about Katie being gone for a week. I’m not worried—the kid was born social and has­n’t met a stranger yet. She adapts to new sit­u­a­tions far bet­ter than I ever have. I’m just feel­ing clingy because my baby is grow­ing up. And next year she def­i­nite­ly wants to do the two-week camp!

I’m hop­ing to get lots done this week to avoid think­ing too much about the absence of both our girls. Maybe I’ll actu­al­ly fin­ish the fil­ing! Or maybe not. I real­ly hate fil­ing. But it does need to be done.

Katie and I went to vis­it Papa (my father) yes­ter­day. He’s rul­ing the world from the hos­pi­tal bed in the liv­ing room. He can get up and walk around, sit out­side and enjoy his deck, etc. too, but he has to rest a lot. The hos­pi­tal bed is much eas­i­er for him to get in and out of than a reg­u­lar bed, and he can adjust it to the angle he’s sup­posed to lay at. I saw the incisiond—eek! But it looks to be heal­ing very cleanly. 

I’m glad this surgery went so well since he’s going to have to have the same thing done in his low­er back soon. Sam’s moth­er has had to have both hips replaced in the last decade. The first surgery did­n’t go very well, which made the sec­ond one a cou­ple of years ago far more stressful.

Oh—my par­ents are sell­ing their house! Is any­body inter­est­ed in a 5 bed­room, 2 bath house with a huge yard in Tuck­er? It’s a crap­py school dis­trict, but it’s a pret­ty con­ve­nient place to com­mute to just about any­where around Atlanta from because it’s near Spaghet­ti Junc­tion (but in Gwin­nett County).

Got­ta go now!
