January 18, 2015

We are back home now, as we left Livermore this morning. I had planned on getting out at about 09:00 and we made it - I felt pretty good about that, considering how Linda was still feeling. On a big plus side, she is feeling much better now, than she did yesterday, and even better than she did this morning. I think she is over the worst of the illness, and now it is just a matter of dealing with the lingering aspects, such as the cough.

We did stop to visit with David, and his family, though we really didn't stay too long. As it turns out Miriam is a bit under the weather as well, so we kept the interfacing down to a minimum. Yesterday was Dylan's birthday, and we wanted to be sure to deliver his birthday gifts. We also had some other gifts, from Christmas, and that included Ethan. Ethan was also dealing with a bug, and probably the same thing that Linda and Miriam have. He was sleeping when we arrived so we didn't get a chance to see him, and that is probably a better thing. We'll see him on the next trip.

The drive down to David's was pretty easy and the traffic was relatively light, and then on the drive back down to San Diego, from David's  was also much easier than I anticipated. We were both very happy about this, and we arrived home at about 19:05 (7:05pm) - that's about an hour sooner than I thought we'd get here. As we walked up to the door, it opened and Joselyn was there to great us. She had been taking care of Jason while we were gone, and now she was there to greet us. The house was very clean and everything nice and tidy. Jason was in great spirits and apparently he even cooked the dinner last night, for himself. There were some left overs in the refrigerator.

We didn't stay up too late, and in fact Linda went to bed by 20:00 (8pm), and I stayed up a little longer. Like I said, Linda is feeling better, though she is still pretty tired and just wanted to get some sleep. The girls will be here in the morning (no school because of MLK day), so we want to be as refreshed as possible. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Glad you're back home and were able to see David!
    Know that you're in my prayers!
    Psalms 86:5-7 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee. Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications. In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.
