The first few weeks since I've been trying to find a productive path again. I think it's starting to get there.
Sorry to hear about how sick everyone had been. Not a fun way to deal with post Disney blues.

Last weekend DH fixed my laptop. It was just a stupid plastic ring around the on button that had been pushed out of position so I couldn't turn it on. Nice to have it back but now my Mac desktop is getting hung up when I try to start it up.

I emailed runDisney to be sure my half marathon time was good enough to qualify for the Coast to Coast medal. They assured me it was and they also fixed my official results that were 36 minutes too long. SO....Mary K and I signed up for the DisneyLand Half Marathon Labor Day weekend. We had talked about going Thursday but we found out that the Red Sox will be playing out there the Wed & Thu so we're thinking of trying to get tickets to the Thursday game and heading out on Wed.

I suggested to DH that we make it our family trip but he wasn't sure he was up for that. Now the kids are working on him. He's seem somewhat open to the idea.

Glynis-would we be crazy to fly into Salt Lake City around August 17thish-go to Zion maybe Arches or some other parks. I would really like to see the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. See the Hoover Dam and drive to California by August 29th? Then fly home out of California. OH...and Joe really wants to see the Disney Family Museum in SF. Any tips for a trip like that? Any Disney Land tips? Hotel suggestions for DL if it is for our family of 5 or for just Mary K & I (another friend might join us too).

Hooray for being qualified for Coast to Coast!!!

A trip out West would be really fun for your family. Just be aware, that SLC is about 5 hours north of Zion, and it is quite a drive. It's doable, but I just wanted you to be aware. Most people actually fly into Las Vegas, then travel north to do Grand Canyon and Zion. My advice would be to check out some maps and see what appeals to everyone. Zion is great for the family as there are hikes of different abilities. Arches is some of the most gorgeous scenery you'll ever see! There are so many places in Utah that are spectacular to see!

As you get closer to your date, and finalize who is going, let me know and I'll help with all the advice I can!

Thanks!!

Thinking about it a bit more there is SO much I want to see in Utah that I think we should plan a trip some other time for all of that.

I think we should look into flying into SanFran and stick to all CA this time. I don't want to be completely wiped out before the race.

Good morning, DDA!

Bob's surgery went well! We have a follow-up appointment with the surgeon this afternoon to see if Dr. Elin is correct in this assessment.

I'm willing to bet you were! I'm glad it all went well. We think of you often.

I spent the morning today at a memorial service for a good friend's grandfather. I was a loving family man who used to call each of his grandkids every morning before school to say hello, give them a weather report for the day and suggest what they should wear for said weather. LOL. It got me to thinking about how long it has been since my grandma passed away and I can't quite quantify it. It just always seems like it was just recently, but maybe that's just because I know she's never far away. :

Only other news around her is that we're waiting with fingers crossed in hopes that Phil gets an interview with the city for a new job opening there. It would be such a good opportunity for us and help solidify our ability to move forward on housing options. Thanks for all the FB comments of good thoughts for it!

I am not surprised that your life has taken you on an inward journey, Deb.

After it was discovered that Bob had an abrasion on his cornea that healed as a significant scar, his eye surgeon determined that doing cataract surgery might help improve his vision. With correction before the surgery, the best he could offer Bob was 20/70. We decided to have the simplest of all cataract removal procedures and that surgery was on Wednesday.

We had a follow-up appointment yesterday afternoon and the surgeon is delighted. Bob's eyesight without correction in his left eye is now 20/30! He will need new glasses but we popped the lens out of his current pair this morning. I had to put it back in because the lack of the rest of his progressive prescription made him dizzy. We can have an exam done in about a month to five weeks. It worked!

I've been waiting all morning for Verizon to get here, which was supposed to be between 8-12. I finally decided to bite the proverbial bullet and bundle my services (tv, internet and phone), so I'm switching to Fios.
