Today was a pretty exciting day, and also a bit of a downer day. The downer part was related to the fact that the girls went away for a few days (we get them back on Monday). The exciting part was that we had a great deal of fun with them, while they were here, and they even helped to take down a bunch of the Christmas decorations. Of course, because it is military housing we really only had a limited amount of decorations we could put up, but we still had a great time. The other exciting thing was that Scott, the Gary Sinise Foundation project manager for building Jason's house, sat down and talked with us. As you might imagine, most of the conversation revolved around Jason and his needs, but it was still nice to be a part of the conversation, and I enjoy getting my two cents in there, when it is appropriate. As the house develops I will be putting more of it in the blog, but for now just be aware that we have begun the process, and depending on a number of factors it could take the better part of a year to get accomplished.
The other two things that happened today, that I consider positives, Linda made us some stew (I already had some of the broth and it was great) and Jason, Linda and I went to the movies. We went and saw Saving Mr. Banks. It was a movie that Linda wanted to see and I had heard some good things about it, so I was open to seeing it; and, Jason went along just because I think he wanted to get out of the house for a while. As it turned out, both Jason and I were laughing at some of the humor in the movie and enjoyed the history immensely. After the movie I told Linda that it was an excellent choice and we were all glad to have seen it. I would recommend it for anyone, especially the history buffs out there. Thank you, for all the continued prayers and support. Take care and stay positive.
