In A Word - Tired

We went in for Sam's game Sunday and then stopped in Lake Orion to eat. It was late and not a lot of places were open but the little diner was and we had some good food. We laugh each night when we come home discussing what the attendants think of our coming home after dark each night.

Allen had a trip to Columbus so we went into Kara's Monday and spent
the night and the next day. We took Kara to the doctor to have a drain removed and were caught in a huge traffic jam that turned what should have been a quick trip into a pretty long one.

Tuesday was busy. Ted had an eye doctor appointment, both Sam and Morgan had appointments but Morgan's was cancelled and Sam had a ballgame. I have kept the laundry done and the dishwasher emptied. I enlisted the kids help to keep the rest of the house straightened in exchange for time on the Wii that we had brought along and they did a good job. I cleaned two closets at Kara's request and went through Morgan's clothes with her. Katie will be getting two bags of clothes! Then I went to the grocery.

Ted took Sam to his game. He was proud when the coach asked Ted if he had been working with Sam because it showed in his game. When they came home Allen had returned so we headed back to the campground.

Our friends we meet up with each year came to Romeo for lunch with us on Wednesday. We wanted to catch up on their winter in Thailand and our recent trip to France. They plan to spend one more winter in Mexico and may need our assistance with car storage and transportation. They asked about our upcoming trip to Rome. It was a relaxing afternoon and just what I needed; that and the two hour nap I took when we got home. I think the steps in the 2-story house more than anything else get to me the most. I haven't had stairs in quite some time.

Today Ted is shooting and then we are going grocery shopping for tomorrow. With the 4th smack dab in the middle of the week, the fireworks will be Friday night and the kids will be out. I guess July 4 will be ho-hum when it gets here.

We are looking forward to moving on to East Harbor State Park on Lake Erie near Sandusky OH next week. There's a spot next to the water for my chair and Kindle!
