The first day of August gave us a fresh start on our monthly allotment of 20 GBs worth of Internet time with our Millenicom MiFi. You get so spoiled having access everywhere you go that when it cuts off, it is a bit of a pain having to search out free WiFi to stay connected. Thankfully, a ready supply of Dunkin Donuts helped ease that pain… :c)
Once again we’re thankful for the flexibility our full time life gives us. We can change plans at a moment’s notice. We got a phone call that my dad was in the hospital with a pretty bad infection in his arm. No idea how it happened, but he had a procedure to clean out the infection and will stay in the hospital until early next week to monitor the healing process.
Since we’re only two hours away, we went to see him and all is coming along well, he is in great spirits and may be sent home Sunday or Monday, but will need some help at home. We’ll be packing up here at the Navy campground and heading to stay with him for a week or so until he’s back to full strength.
His house has a long, straight driveway that we can park the Journey in, but it’s a tight turn to get into off the country road he lives on. Hopefully the grass won’t be too wet and soggy because I’ll have to cut across part of it to swing and make the turn in and I don’t want to get stuck. Of course, right now it is pouring rain out. Fingers crossed.
It will be hard to say goodbye to Anabelle and baby Elizabeth (and her mommy and daddy), but knowing that we will be back again does ease the sadness.
On the bright side, I’ll be able to keep some change in my pocket now, Anabelle always asks me for coins for her piggy bank. Can’t turn her down when she looks at me with her baby blues.
