CHANGE OF PLANS
Just when I think I have all my ducks in a row, one of the little boogers decides to take a detour. This happened this past weekend while we were on a little get away to Las Vegas. After visiting my MIL and seeing what has been done so she can return to her home, we discovered not much had happened to make this possible.
Hubby was quite disappointed when he realized he is going to have to go back there to supervise the completion of the renovations needed to the house before she can return home. This all should have been completed months ago. Promises have been made everytime he goes up there. "Yes, we will get right on it and get it completed". It doesn't happen.
So what does this mean? It means hubby will be heading back up there yet this month for an extended stay to make sure things get done ASAP so she can return home. After the renovations are completed the house still needs to be inspected by the state and a discharge from her doctor needs to be completed. This all takes time and $$$$.
After taking all of this into consideration, we have decided our trip to Europe is going to be put on hold for this year. It is not a huge disappointment. Really, it isn't. Making sure his mother is comfortable and back where she longs to be is much more important to us. She is the last of our parents and we will do anything to make, what remains of her life, happy. Remember she is 92 and a stroke patient.
We still have plans for a few short adventures but nothing that will take us away for 11 days and 5600 miles away. We also have our own renovations on our house to complete as well.
It is amazing at how both of us relaxed after making that decision. We had both been thinking it for a few days but were a bit unsure of how the other one would feel about it. You would think, after 44 years, we would know each other better than that. LOL
Have any of you had to make big game plan changes before? Rain, I know you did when looking for a new abode. Anyone else?
OK, I need to get back to my knitting. I have been having so much fun working on some new items these past couple of weeks. To see what is being worked on, drop by on Sunday for my YOP update.
Until next time......................happy crafting!
