Cinco de Mayo has become more an a holiday in the U.S. than it is in Mexico, and that is something that has always kind of intrigued me. Our culture always seems to want to celebrate something, and early May seems like it needs something more than just the first day in May.
We had a very good day and other than get a good bike ride in, and a visit by Brian McMillan, the VA caregiver coordinator, it has been a rather ordinary day - and I like it that way. Oh, it was still Taco Tuesday and we all had fun at dinner, but not much else happened. There was the Giants game, against the Padres, and that turned out pretty good, but not much else.
Okay, maybe something did happen - Kojak is back home with us. Jason and I went to the doctor's office and picked him up today, and Jason and Kojak were both very happy for that to happen. It is good to see Kojak acting more like what one would expect a puppy to act like. Prior to the hospital stay he was lethargic and very subdued. My guess is that over the next few days he will get used to his new home and the people who live here, and he will be a happy puppy.
Tomorrow we will be heading out to the paint dealer, to select paints for Jason's new home, and it should be kind of a fun activity. My guess is that it won't take more than an hour, but then, I could be totally wrong. Jason also has expressed an desire to get out and see the new Avenger movie, so we might get that in tomorrow as well. Otherwise, not much planned, and I hope that we can have a nice relaxed day. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
