Today was another day of relaxing and doing things that we want to do, but only if we really want to do them. Linda came in at about 8:45 this morning and I picked her up at the airport. Jason stayed back in bed, and Tom, the nurse support person, was there with him. Linda and I went to breakfast, and then went and bought a hammer. She has been after me to get a hammer for weeks now, so I guess it was time to get one. She is interested in putting some things up on the walls, and having a hammer does make it easier - trying to drive even a small nail with a knife or spoon really isn't the best idea. I know a bunch of you are out there saying she's right, and I'm not arguing with that, I just wanted to be sure that when the hammer was purchased it was done with Linda around - didn't want to get the wrong hammer... ;-)
This afternoon we all went out and did a little shopping for Jason, as he wanted to get an entertainment center for the front room. Something to put his television on, and to hold some of the things he has sitting around in the front room, sitting on tables. We found a nice cabinet that is a good height for him, where he can reach just about every place, with only a couple of small areas on the bottom that are out of his reach - at this time. As he gets better with his rehab, and further along with his healing I would think that he will be able to get to all places on the cabinet. It is supposed to arrive sometime late, tomorrow morning
Tonight was another first, for the house. We all sat out in the front room and watched a movie. The movie was Sahara, with Matthew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz, and it was the first time I'd seen it. We had a great time just relaxing together and talking about the movie as it went along (yeah, we talked during the movie - we don't do it at theaters though). After the movie we all decided it was time to just do a little clean up (put a few things away) and then go to bed (well, I came up to do the blog post). And that about does it for today...
Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. We're making progress, even if sometimes it seems slow, it is still progress.
