A crazy week

Hi, how are you?

Good?  Me?  I am limping through the days, life is calming down,

It began 15 days ago.  10:00 in the morning, my Aunt called, told me her grandson, who had been very ill, had passed away.

(That afternoon, my tenant told me she was leaving, in case you need a 2 bed, 2 bath condo).

i was stunned, perhaps in shock.  I got through Monday and Tuesday, and early Wednesday we boarded a plane to Chicago.  I booked the ticket on Sunday night, and Monday morning, SpecialK called and told me he was taking that flight with me, then connecting west.

We set our alarms for 4:45 am and left for the airport less than an hour later.  We boarded the plane at 7:00 am. Departure time of 7:35.  We took off at 7:30, and landed at 6:00 pm in Chicago.

If you are a friend of mine on FB, you know what happened that day.  If not, just know there were several FAA rules bent, pushed and extended that day.

I went to the funeral on Thursday, and tears are in my eyes as I type this.  He was 15.  Perhaps in sympathy, my left ankle began to hurt.

I returned home on Friday, no delays, and at 7:00 the next morning, we drove to Cape Cod.  We spent two days with friends, before heading home.

i spent the next few days sitting down, before going to Urgent Care for my ankle pain.  X-rays showed several issues, nothing broken, and 4 days later I am in much less pain.  Drinking the Kool-Aid and wearing the sling as directed (not an actual sling).

We went to the Gluten Free/Allergy Friendly Expo in Worcester last Saturday.  It took me until today to realize who wasn’t there, but we got some New England products, some bread, and rolls, SpecialK got cookies, and we paid less to enter than we had in CA.  He told me early Saturday that he doesn’t get anything from these Expos.  I reminded him of Breton Gluten Free, that he got pre full market release.  I reminded him of the pita bread he found last year.

So asked if he got his money’s worth from this Expo, he said yes.  Score!  I will be adding this event to my calendar yearly.
