For most of the summer, Toby and I had been planning a little vacation for this week. The closer it got to our vacation, things started to go wrong. Not knowing exactly how our vacation would turn out, I did not post about it. I did plan on posting at the last minute, but you know how that goes. Sure enough, I ran out of time and did not get to post. We ended up going to Lubbock to see Toby’s mom. Last time we were there, I was able to steal some Internet access and post from there. This time, although I took my laptop, there was no internet access. My fingers have practically shriveled up from lack of typing. Toby says I am a computer junky.
Anyway, we have been in Lubbock the last several days. Toby’s mom was not feeling well while we were there. We did get to do lots of visiting with Mr. and Mrs. Bear, which was the best part of the trip. Their daughter, Erin, came over on Sunday and we all went out to breakfast. Later we dropped in on their son, Blaine, and daughter-in-law and checked out their new house. Mrs. Bear and I spent lots of time catching up and lots of time reminiscing and laughing. I love spending time with the Bears.
Tuesday morning we talked Toby’s mom in to going to the doctor since she was still not doing well. Her hand had been swollen with what she thought was a spider bite. Toby and I were doubtful of that diagnosis from the beginning. The doctor’s diagnosis was an infection, possibly staph, and prescribed an antibiotic. There was some other doctor stuff, but I won’t go into it here. Hopefully, she will start feeling better soon. I wished she lived closer so we could check on her more often.
Toby and I drove home yesterday getting in about 7 PM. It is always good to be home. Toby is off for the rest of the week. I like having him around, but it throws my days off. Maybe I will be back on schedule next week. Computer time will be sporadic.
By the way, it was 107 yesterday here in TX/OK. I am so ready for fall.
