We loved spending time with Aundrea in Utah. We adore her and hated saying goodbye. Our next project was to sort through Danny’s 3 storage units, and when we opened the doors to them…nothing had been stolen!!! After reorganizing, dejunking and transferring boxes, we consolidated everything down to two units, after which we continued our drive up to Firth where my Mom lives. By the time we got there I felt like I was going cross eyed with fatigue, and went right in, cuddle up on my parents bed and went to sleep.
This morning I had a dental appointment where we planned out replacing my broken crown. I then took Jude to a dermatologist, where they removed a potentially worrisome mole on her lower back. She’s now sporting a couple of stitches which we will remove in about 10-12 days.
The fun part of our day was helping Hunter out at his apartment. He and Nonna have the cutest kitten who loves to give her and Hunter kisses, and after that we met the family for a picnic in the woods.
We loved cuddling babies.
Mycah and Josie sat and conversed for quite some time.
We roasted s’mores after a delicious meal.
Jude is officially the best marshmallow roaster!
Aidan took the little boys on an adventure through the woods.
What an amazing time together as a family.
I am so grateful for them all.
Danny checked on Tanda Malaika today. Her keels have been repaired and she will have her bottom painted tomorrow and hopefully be in the water on Thursday. It looks like aside from the new generator, she will need new engines. Once the prices of parts and labor are added to repair the engines, it makes sense to just purchase new ones. Since she was a charter boat before we bought her, her generator and engines were not taken care of, and over used. It will be a big chunk of change, but important to have well a working boat before heading down through the canal and away from the US for a while.
I miss Danny. It feels like we’ve been apart for so long. It has been wonderful being with family, but I long to be with my Sweetheart. Only 4 more days till I can see him. Tomorrow morning I have a cardiology appointment and then we’ll get Emma’s eyes checked and take her to the Asthma doctor as well. We figured we may as well get all the medical appointments taken care of while we are here.
Life is good, and I am grateful for it.
