Dad sleep pets the dog...


On the home front, I haven't managed to get everything into my new place yet. Bad weather, lots of meetings and late nights has put a crimp in my moving style. My hope is that I get everything in on Sunday with the help of a few men with strong backs and good legs. There are 30, count them 30, steps to my new apartment so moving furniture up them is not for the faint of heart. I, myself, have made about a bazillion trips up and down and my legs are as muscular as I can ever remember them. This move is going to be good for me in so many ways!

You may be asking yourself (if you've managed to hang on this long) why doesn't she move the rest in today? The reason is because my dad is having hernia surgery in Billings so I am here with him. It's not a very serious operation, but with dad's age and Parkinson's to consider, there is always a chance (though I prefer to believe it to be VERY slight) that there could be complications.

So as usual, I am sending out a request for your kind thoughts and prayers to be sent this direction. My dad is a wonderful, sweet, dear man and he is very much loved by all that know him and it gives us all comfort knowing you are holding him in your hearts.

Take good care, my dear friends. I'll talk to you soon.

You are where you should be. Your Dad will appreciate it. I expect his surgery will go well. Of course, all surgery his risks. He will be more comfortable with the hernia repaired.

I love the dog. He seems to be offering sympathy.

You and your daddy definitely have my thoughts and hopes for a successful surgery. :-)

Laurie, I'm sending good vibes for your sweet Dad. They say a happy heart and mind heals. He'll be fine.

I should probably walk up and down my steep driveway ten times a day. I'd love to feel my hamstring muscle again :o)

Happy Moving! Take photos!
