We've decided to keep our Christmas decorations up at least until the end of the first week of January. We thought about starting to take them down, and then recognized that the girls both really enjoy them, and so we will keep them up as long as they are with us, and that gets us to the end of the first week. We should have them all packed up by the 8th or so, and then look forward to the next major holiday ... Groundhog Day!
Today started with George and I going over to the bicycle shop and putting my bike in for some service and a tune up. As it turned out they suggested to have even more work than I thought was needed, but only because there is a part that is difficult to acquire (center ring on the front crank). I told them to go ahead and replace the entire crank, and it is going to cost $20 more, but then I'll have a new crank. I shouldn't complain though, I thought the total cost would be about $150 and it looks like it will come in, less than that.
We came back to the house and then we took George to the air port where he caught his flight back home. There were a couple of delays, and he took off about 30 minutes later than originally scheduled, but we know he arrived home safely, and that is the most important thing. Our friend Rick Edson picked him up and took him to his home, and now George will be able to get to work tomorrow. George is very dedicated to his job, and they love him for it.
We had a couple more errands, and then I took everybody back home. The last was the trip to Costco and I ran that one on my own. Linda was back at the house taking care of a few other things, and it allowed the girls to stay home and play, like they wanted. What was really good today was that Jason was able to basically just stay in bed, again today, and allow the wounds to progress a bit more. I am very pleased at how they are progressing, and actually look forward to our next visit to Wound Care, so they can see how well he is doing.
Tonight we had a roasted chicken and baked potato, with some carrots. It was kind of funny when the girls asked for dessert, because Jackie asked first and she wanted jelly beans (Jelly Belly). As soon as Stacy saw that we were okay with it she jumped in and said she was wanting the same thing. Linda allowed them to each have just a couple, and they were very happy to have it. I found it amusing that they were happy with that type of dessert.
Not much else going on other than we are looking to go see the Hobbit tomorrow. We have someone coming in to watch the girls, and then we'll go to the movie. It is a very popular movie, so I am hoping that it won't be too busy. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
