Yesterday we went up to Connecticut for my niece’s birthday party. We could see the evidence of the heavy rains as we went around from Long Island to Connecticut. We avoided the routes that we knew had a tendency to flood and were informed by 1010 that we were right.
We had a nice time visiting with our relatives. Caroline enjoyed the Birthday party. Ariel took point at riding herd on the kids so the adults could talk which I appreciate.
In other news, Ariel got a job at a JCC summer camp that starts the end of June. She is in charge of Arts and Crafts. She is looking for projects that can be done for kids K-6. So if you have any website suggestions, she would greatly appreciate it.
I have had an upset stomach for about three days now. I haven’t a clue why. I don’t feel ill just that I want to throw up and have a couple of times. That is the only symptom other than feeling like I am overheating but my temperature has remained within normal limits for me. Riding in the car yesterday was a bit more of an adventure for than I would like but I managed to keep everything down.
Having done a battery of tests, they are now working with Peter to get his shoulder back more to normal. He already has a greater range of motion than he did Friday. He can even move it to his side without too much discomfort. It is more that now it feels stiff. But he is being careful about not over stressing it.
Caroline has one and a half more weeks of school. She is looking forward to her summer vacation. She has all kinds of plans of various things she wants to do. We are going to sort out the calendar and figure out what she can and can’t do.
It is interesting to me how much our lives have returned to normal or what passes for normal around here and how much had changed. We have new routines and new things we have to look for but we have restored a lot of things back to what they were.
My focus needs more focus.
I am grateful for normality.
