A Look At Our Week
I spent last week with Mom again and returned home this past Monday. Mom had 2 doctor appointments last week which made it a very active week! She’s grown tired of my constant presence and is ready for her normal, independent life back! She had good reports from both doctors and is in a hard cast for 4 more weeks then will go to a walking boot. She is managing well, she has every piece of mobility equipment made I believe!
My uncle passed away while I was in town with Mom and we attended the funeral on Sunday. Funerals and death always take me back to when Dad passed away. At times it seems so long ago, but my memory of that last day are so crystal clear and strong as if it happened yesterday. My uncle’s service was beautiful and I sat in awe as my cousin stood and spoke at her Dad’s funeral. Not sure that I would have had that kind of strength, but I have no doubt if my Dad had requested it that I would have given it my best shot.
I returned home on Monday morning and we scheduled a quick date night to see A Star Is Born (go see it if you have not!) before we had to leave town yet again Tuesday morning for a quick day trip to Danville. We caught up with friends and Cutler and had a quick shopping trip at Target before returning home late Tuesday night.
Friday morning we were back on the road again. Ohio bound this time. Every year my guy performs in Octubafest in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. Chagrin Falls is such a charming town. It reminds me of the picturesque towns shown in movies and T.V. shows.
It was great seeing our Ohio friends and family and catching up with everyone!
All our cows were taken away this week! 😢 There were 24 female cows that will be used for breeding. They have been sold and will eventually transfer to their new home in Wyoming. I’m sure we looked like the stereotypical city folk as we sat on the front porch and watched in amazement as they loaded the cows onto 2 trailers.
Despite our initial issues, I am going to miss those cows! I have told my guy with all of the animals gone the house has lost a small fraction of its charm and I will be focusing on moving now. The cows owner and caretaker have assured us that, “They’ll be more.” So we will see!
Have a great week!! XOXOXO
