Yea! Connie’s back home from her trip to Houston. She flew out last Tuesday morning really early to attend the ASCLS Annual Meeting…got to meet up with all of her buddies and talk shop…got a bunch of continuing edumacation to keep up her license and other certifications…and got to experience the heat and humidity of Houston in August.
Meanwhile…Neil stayed home in the house and pretty much vegetated. The highlight of his week was when he moved BAT from it’s overflow parking in site 16 across from the house to next to the house while the honey wagon pumped out the septic tank…then moved it back before Connie got home Saturday evening about midnight or so.
Luckily we got him enough frozen dinners, beer, and wine to last while she was gone. The weather in Graham was in the 70s and we had 2 sunny days and 2 rainy days while she was gone.
Now that she’s home she has an appointment with the lady bits doctor on Wednesday and then Neil has another appointment with the cast folks on Thursday the 15th. He’ll either be (we hope) in a boot from then on or maybe a walking cast for a couple of weeks and then a boot so he can walk. Based on the results of the appointment on the 15th we’ll make plans to either leave shortly after Labor Day or along the middle of the month.
While Connie was gone Neil did some preliminary planning and has 3 or 4 options for what we’ll do when we leave here depending on the exact date and when he’s off the crutches. We’ll arrive in Junction City for some warranty work on Oct 6 and then in Cedar Key FL on Oct 25 before settling in down in Fort Myers for the winter on Nov 1.
The broken foot continues to heal…no pain to speak of ever and he’s getting pretty good at hobbling around on the crutches…although getting in and out of the house is pretty much a beached whale routine.
We might do something fun this week…if we do then I’ll grab some photos and put them up for ya’ll. I might even process and edit some more photos from our earlier travels this spring/summer so the blog isn’t quite so boring.
YAY! Rooting for a boot!
The three kinds of stress…nuclear, cooking and a&&hole. Jello is the key to the relationship.
