Yes, I know…it has been over a week since I last checked in here, but we have been busy every day since our return trip from Alabama.
Kids, grandkids, doctors, and chores have kept our days full...so let’s catch up.
In addition to all the work we had done in Red Bay, we still had a leak in the kitchen sink. However, Mark decided
he would take care of that chore himself. And, so it was…old drains out,
new drains in and no leaks. Perfect…all that was really needed was a little putty, but I talked Mark into two new bright and shiny strainers.
Then there was a
sick day with Kourtney. While I took care of her, she took care of Pink Baby.
Mark also has had me busy…let’s see, a few days ago, he and the ladder took a tumble while he was cleaning in the storage barn. When the dust cleared, he had a few bruises and some sore spots, but no broken bones.
Also, while we were in Alabama, Mark started having some eye problems. He was experiencing eye floaters and flashers. I made him an appointment with the doctor just as soon as we returned to Texas.
The first exam showed some blood on the back side of his eye, which increased the risk for a detached retina. But, after the initial exam there was no sign of a tear. Dr. Rosenthal had us wait a week and come back. So, yesterday we went for the follow up appointment. Everything was about the same with the floaters and flashers, but the blood was better and still no sign of any retinal problems. We were very thankful for the report.
Other than trying to keep Mark under control…there have been…soccer games, school programs, tumbling classes, and making plans towards the upcoming Thanksgiving day lunch.
Of course, there is the usual laundry, cleaning, and grocery shopping.
And, so continues the busy days in Fort Worth.
