No 55 or Da Count this week. I've been scurrying around for a day trying to get ready to go to Georgia to take care of my mother-in-law. If you recall, some time ago she fell and broke her wrist and pelvis. She comes home from the hospital today and I am scheduled to fly out early tomorrow to stay with her for a week.
This is not meant to be a complaint but I have a few concerns. My back is still not right. It's better than it was but I have been down this road enough time to know I'm at the point where if I don't pace myself I could completely screw things up. So I want to be useful to my MIL but I also don't want to make my own situation a whole lot worse.
As the time approaches I am also wondering how things will be going interpersonally because we don't have an especially close relationship. At times it has been more than a bit contentious. things have been better recently and I am glad for that. A week of just the two of us, both coping with varying levels of pain...could be very interesting.
Finally, we currently have about 3 inches of snow, we are expected to get about 6 more then ice on top of all that. It's not supposed to stop until tomorrow morning after my flight leaves. It's a 2 hour drive to the airport when weather conditions are good. After running the car into a ditch last week and doing $300 worth of damage to it I am less than thrilled to be heading into the city in the pre-dawn hours during such lovely conditions.
Any and all prayers and good energy for the well being of me, my MIL, and my family while I am gone, as well as me just getting there in one piece are most appreciated.
I can't say that I will be posting at all while I am down there. If I do it will be sporadic and I know I won't have a lot of chance to get around to all of you. I should be back to regular posting the first week in March.
UPDATE: 11:30am...We've got 6 inches already and the worst has supposedly not even started. ugh.
