This morning started out a little on the kookier side - as you might expect with it being April Fools' Day. About every 5 seconds one of the girls would attempt their best joke, and of course Grandma and Grandpa had to play along. After about a dozen of these they started to get a little worn, from my perspective, but it did make the girls happy so we continued. Finally I said they had to eat their breakfast, or they might be late for school, and it helped.
We walked the girls to school and came back to the house to begin a little bit of a clean up and also to help Jason get ready for his appointments. Actually he was headed over to Balboa to visit the folks in the PT area and then later, about 13:00 (1pm) he had an appointment to see the dentist at the VA. The only thing I wanted to do was to get in a bike ride, and so at about 09:00 I took off on my bike. It was a nice ride and I put in just a little over 24 miles, and it felt pretty good. I had a good workout and as I was cooling down Jason asked me to go with him to the dentist, because he didn't know if they were going to be doing anything more than a cleaning. Linda stayed back to work on cleaning some things up around the house and also to do some prep work for Easter.
As it turned out the dental appointment lasted much longer than either of us had figured it would, yet all they did was clean his teeth, take some X-rays, and get in a full exam. They did find a cavity that they hadn't seen on the X-rays, and said he was going to have to come back to have it worked on, so I know I will be going back to help for sure this time.
When we did get back to the house Jason let us know that the girls would be coming back to us on Thursday, rather than Friday, so that meant a few changes in our plans. Linda and I had to head over to Target to pick up a few things, and perhaps that was a good thing, since Target was looking like it had been shopped over pretty well already. Fortunately Linda already had most of the needed items, and this was just a few other things to complete the picture.
Jason said he had, had a busy day and therefore he took an early shower and dressing change, and Linda and I decided to just kick back to relax and watch a dvd. This has been a good and fun day, and like so many, it had some surprises. Thank you, for the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
