Family Friday

My sweet granddaughter, Abigail, had an 8 hour surgery to repair her cleft lip on Tuesday. It was a long day! I spent Wednesday at Boston Children’s hospital with her and my daughter.


The junk guys came on Thursday afternoon to take an old couch, an old armoire, and two old bed frames to the dump. They threw everything over the top of the second floor porch railing right into their truck! I went between wanting to film it and not being able to watch!


The move…..it just keeps going on and on and on! It’s only one more week till we are in the old town flat. I am so ready for it all to be over. I don’t care how long it takes to unpack I just want to be done packing!


Tucker has been able to walk through an open window onto the porch now that the warmer weather is here but once we move we won’t have a porch so he will have to go back to being an all the way indoor cat. He will be disappointed.


We had an old giant pickle jar that we used for spare change. It was about half way full and I brought it to the bank’s change counting machine. I figured it would be about 25 dollars but it turned out to be 120 dollars! I gave half to my daughter and kept half for myself. I’ll use it to buy something for the new flat.

  1. I’m so glad your granddaughter’s surgery went well! Wow, 8 hours is a long one. That’s a lot of change! How fun to have that unexpected bonus! Moving is such a trial – hope all gets settled soon.

  2. Oh, I’m so thankful that your granddaughter’s surgery was successful. I’m sure you and your daughter were just sitting there all those hours praying and waiting for the good news.
    Moving? It’s always a longer and more tiring process then we think it will be.
    Happy Summer to you!

  3. Oh praise God the surgery went well. Did the doc say she might need speech therapy in preschool? I had a student who did ( i teach special ed preK) have cleft lip surgery and she needed therapy for a couple years but all turned out great!!

    Good luck with the move. Last time i moved was into our newly built home in 1994 after living in a small 2 bedroom apt. I dread the day we downsize! Ha!

    Enjoy the week!
