Our days are executed with the precision of a Jenga structure. Dad had a 1 1/2 hour dental appointment scheduled for today. The plan was to drop him off, and then zip Allie over to a lunch she had planned. THEN Dad's appointment got cancelled. THEN Michael broke a temporary crown and the VA wanted him to come in....so he couldn't stay with Dad while I took Allie to her lunch.
In the end, I told Dad we'd need to leave the house anyway, but instead of a crown, he would come to lunch (there was no way he'd sit in the car during the lunch as I'd planned to do). He felt this was a good trade. LOL THEN I realized Stacia may like to have lunch too....and that is how we ended up having a girl's lunch with Grandpa in the midst of a crazy busy week.
After lunch we had just enough time to get Dad to his physical therapy appointment. A funny thing happened on the way to Dad's physical therapy appointment - he and I got stuck in their lift. ::snort::
The girls and I had planned a bit of driving practice while Dad was at PT. In the end we were tired and needed to fill our time with a less mentally taxing activity. We found a park, enjoyed nature, and played. Simple is often best.
This is probably a good time to share we are currently on summer break. We planned to take the week of the wedding, the week after, and then dipnetting week off. I don't always picture how hard the girls have been working.
