John & Lindsey

Just back from two weeks in San Diego. Always glad to go, always glad to come home and sleep in my own bed. I'm always sleep deprived and stressed that we're not going to get in all the errands, doctor's visit's, lab visit's, trip's to Costco, seeing John's family, and all the other dozen's of things they have me do. The first week was great. Sally, my best friend of 40 years and sister-in-law, met in Laguna Beach for one night, followed by a visit at her dad's house. That was just spectacularly fun! The second week, I had a 40 hour migraine, a trip to the e.r., and a raging infection that knocked the crap out of me. Me, the retired chef, did not cook ONE meal while I was there. Bad daughter! But I did manage to get everything done but one errand involving a broken clock, so I'm glad about that. The first weekend I was there, I was talking to John about just wanting to see my mom every day. We talked about it for awhile, and the next day when I was talking to him again, he said we should move back to the mainland and live close by and just do what we need to do. Take care of them until it is their time to go. I couldn't believe my ears, but he had been thinking about it A LOT and thought it was time to do it. His dad is 87 and he has a sister nearby, plus two best friends living there. SO, we will move back to San Diego sometime around September and come back to Hawaii to retire. We're both really excited!

Not a word...

O.K....I'll fess up. I haven't worked on the piece for almost two weeks! Oh, I have plenty of excuses plus a sick kitten who is just feeling better as of yesterday. I couldn't get my disc's to print and now I have to remember a section which happened in 1994. I've pulled out the pages to try and start, but I'm just so stuck. I'm leaving for San Diego in a little while for two weeks to visit the parents and I will bring some work and a notebook with me. I think if I just start writing, as always, it will move me forward. I'll check back when I get home on 6/21. Aloha
