missing, musing

Dinner pics from this Saturday make me miss Big A (dropped him off at the train station this morning) and At (back at his place). I also miss Nu looking so happy and animated hanging out with At and Big A's pizza skills (my spinach, goat cheese, and egg pie is always superb).

Bad news from both grandmoms today. MIL has Covid--it seems mild and she still wants us to visit post-Christmas as usual, but we'll have to wait and see. My mom has a lump/cyst on her knee and cannot walk for pain. On the phone, I could tell she was in tears from the pain--I nearly cried too.

We stocked up on essentials this morning in case we're snowbound because of the storm headed our way. I have some remaining errands and we'll for sure need fresh ingredients for Christmas dinner, but no point worrying. I'll cross that bridge when we get there.

I'm glad you had a nice weekend and sorry about the grandmother news. When does Big A come back?

Thanks, StephLove. He'll be back Christmas Day. (He was off for Thanksgiving this year, so has to work Christmas Eve+Morning--this is always the way with essential workers. Thankfully, the kids are used to me tampering with the "start time" to Christmas Day.

Oh no, I am so sorry about the grandmas. That knee thing sounds so painful - my MIL had something similar a few years back, and I cannot for the life of me remember what she did with it. She can walk fine now, but it was painful for a while. Hope your MIL gets through her Covid quickly!
Stay safe and warm! xo

Thanks, Nicole! Outpatient surgery is indicated for mom. MIL says she's sleeping a lot, but is otherwise ok.

the waiting game

Just waiting to go home to Scout and I'm in that space where everything feels surreal, and other people seem alien. All I've done to...
