There is so much to do before leaving for Minnesota. I scarcely know where to begin and so here I sit attempting to sort my thoughts and settle my mind. It's hard for me to leave and feel at peace when loose ends are still hanging, but I guess sometimes that is just how events work themselves out. Sometimes we have to walk away and let someone else do it. (I hope My Darling doesn't mind grocery shopping...)
Mom will be spending a week and a half at my sister's house. She is still struggling greatly with mobility and doesn't even go across the room without her walker. Going up and down steps or stairs has been a major challenge this past week. Thankfully, I don't have to take her out often. She went for her monthly blood draw yesterday and had a shower his morning. Two Mom tasks checked off my to-do list. Oh, wait, make that three. I cancelled oxygen delivery for the next two weeks. After I pack her bags she will be ready to go.
Tomorrow morning by this time we (Hannah and I) will be an hour away from Minneapolis and ready to enjoy a week of snuggling our new baby. Whether or not I'll be blogging before our return is uncertain, but don't worry about me, I'll be soaking up my snuggly new grandson and his wonderful (and maybe not so wonderful) baby smells.
I have plans to connect with my bloggy friends Kim and Kristina, maybe ride a roller coaster (if someone will take us to the MOA), and visit the Cathedral of Saint Paul. I am thankful for my new camera card and for the battery charger I found hiding in a kitchen drawer. I'm going to need those!
