Rick and I had not been on a journey to Desert Aire since the end of October so we decided what the heck. This is our off week from chemo, the pass looks great, the weather is starting to warm up a little and we just needed a little break.
In the past few months, there have been over 2o robberies so we were pleasantly surprised when we unlocked the door and "no one" had stopped by to help themselves to any of our valuable household items. No broken windows, vandalism.... What a nice feeling to know that we were spared. But wait...did I tell you we hadn't turned on the water yet? Well, once we did....oh, la, la...we had sprung a leak. With all the water turned off, all the water mess cleaned up on the kitchen floor and the downstairs kitchen and bathroom floors we decided to head up to the "Sandtrap" Restaurant and enjoy dinner. There is nothing we can do about our little problem until daylight so that's just what we're going to do. Enjoy the rest of our evening, wake up early and try to fix the broken pipe.
Reid and Cathy are hoping to come over tomorrow and join us. Bob and Dy were coming over to Stanwood to see us as well. Now that we're halfway to them, I think they'll be coming here instead. Our intentions are to have our little "problems" fixed before our guests arrive.
I forgot to tell you about my friend Shelly who had the heart surgery on Monday. She is doing well and was able to come home to recuperate. Now lets hope she doesn't get anymore migraines. Our Cousin Eric, who was taken to the hospital from his work at Boeing this week, is also doing well. They haven't determined what made him so sick, but never the less, he's back at work and going strong. Let's hope it stays that way.
I think Relay for Life Kick-Off was a great success last night. There were quite a few people there. Many faces looked new to me. That's what I like to see. Strangers I haven't met yet. By the end of the event gets here I'm sure I'll get a chance to become acquainted with them .
Rick and I are tired already. I think discovering that we have more work to do than we though was the straw that broke the camel's back. I'm getting my jammies on and starting a new book. I'm sure I won't make it past page 5, but I've got a long weekend to work on it.
Sweet Dreams (keep us in your prayers that we find the broken pipe tomorrow morning on the first try)
