We picked our workamping position at J. Strom Thurmond COE for three reasons, the first was we were going to work and live next to Mike and Terri, our long time RV friends and the second was we were going to be pretty close (hour and a half) to our daughter Heather’s house. Thirdly it put us close to Marti’s eye doctor and me to the Veteran’s Administration (VA) hospital.
We finished our first two full weeks of “work” and we are already 14 hours over our required 40 hours (20/week). It was amazing how fast the time went and how much fun we had (except for the pin hunting failure).
We left in our car and headed to Heather’s house, first stopping in Columbia at the eye surgeon who did Marti’s cataract surgery. She needed a quick laser touch up on her lens, a very common thing that only takes a minute to do, but requires a couple hours of waiting for the eye to dilate and numb from the drops put in.
The procedure went without a hitch and we arrived at Heather’s in plenty of time for the boy’s piano lessons. Both Andrew and Owie are doing extremely well and enjoying the piano. It is nice to see kids learning an instrument, giving them something that will give them a lifetime of enjoyment.
Since I have follow up check from my cataract surgery at the VA on Monday, we’ve been invited to stay the weekend at Heather’s. Oh boy, don’t twist our arms!
This gave us a chance to see Andrew play another football game Saturday. His team won handily and their undefeated season continues with just one game left to play. Pretty exciting stuff, who needs the NFL. ;c)
After my appointment on Monday, we’ll head back to Thurmond COE. Hopefully we can access the required online government defensive driving course, it’s been down due to the furlough and until we take and pass it, we can’t drive any government owned vehicles. We’d be a danger to everyone on the road! :cD
