We had a good start to the day today, though the girls sure didn't want to get out of bed. Linda and I were up a little early, actually, with the idea that an easier and slower start to the day might be better. We were in error with that kind of thinking. The girls wanted to just stay in bed and we finally got them going about 10 minutes later than our normal time. This meant that the time window for breakfast was just a little bit tighter, and we went from a relaxed slow day to a more hurried "got'a get going" kinda day. As it turned out, we still made it to school with a little time to spare, and the girls were, or at least seemed to be, totally unaware of Grandma and Grandpa encouraging to get them going. Sometimes I wish I was six years old again - - -  Not!

Once we were done with that aspect of the day, and back at the house, I got ready for a much needed bike ride. The idea was that I was going to go for a nice 20 mile ride and be back in time to head over to the hospital at Balboa, with Jason. Linda had some errands she wanted to get done in the morning and take Jackie to her speech and occupational therapy. When I got back home at close to 11:00 I didn't think anything about no vehicles being there. Jason had said he was going to be going over to check on Kojak (he's doing much better and we'll probably have him home tomorrow), and then I thought he was coming home so we could both go in for the appointment. Jason, apparently, decided that I needed a rest and that he could take care of the appointment on his own, so that 's what happened. I would have liked to have been able to speak with the doctor(s) directly, but that was in the plan this time.

When Jason did get back home, this is also after Linda had returned, he informed us that he had pushed the date for the surgery out to June 9. It is meant to give us a better transition with Kojak, but my personal feeling is that we would have worked out better with the 19th of this month. It does allow more flexibility with a couple of other things we have simmering on the back burners, so-to-speak, so I guess that's the silver lining. It has been done, and so we will just have to go with what we now have, I would have just liked it better to get the issue taken care of.

The rest of the day was still pretty good, and we had a simple hamburgers kind of meal, that the girls really enjoyed. They like when Grandpa cooks hamburgers, and actually, I think Jason does, too. Not sure about what is going to be happening tomorrow, other than Linda and I heading over to our storage units to begin doing some needed rearranging and sorting. With the up coming move we have to decide what is going and what is not. We have a couple of months to get it figured out, and our feeling is that the sooner we get this done, the better we'll be. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Continuing to pray!
    Psalms 40:1-4 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
