A big thank you for all your thoughts and well wishes. It makes a difference.
These are some photos from our weekend, which was actually quite nice with a few outings and milder, sunny weather. It almost felt spring-like. Almost. Things haven’t really changed in Mark’s dad’s condition, which is to say that it isn’t very good news. Mark decided to push up his trip a few days and he’s leaving in an hour. The weather does not look good and there is snow in the forecast starting tonight and all week upstate, and if you know anything about me you know that I’m very uncomfortable with cars in general, especially driving in bad weather. It’s going to be an uneasy week.
The girls have not been away from Mark, ever. They’re quite attached to him since he’s around a lot and they’re both feeling stress from his departure. We’re not sure when he’ll be back. I’m not well either. I have bronchitis again after having finished my round of antibiotics 2 weeks ago and I’ve got a very painful cough-related injury in the ribs now. Weird. The girls say that they are going to “take care of me”. I just hope we have a peaceful few days.
