Well we didn’t manage to get to the National Walk for Epilepsy after all. Both of us had bronchitis. I comfort myself with the thought that perhaps our daughter will be able to walk at least part of the walk with us next year. Here’s hoping.
On the bright side, we raised $630 dollars for the cause, which I think is quite good. And there will be more coming because the company my husband and I work for, as well as another donor, does matching contributions so there will be an additional $150. Not bad for a first attempt, I think.
Otherwise, everything is going fairly well. My father and stepmother and stepbrother are in town for a visit, which is great. They are finally getting to see in person how much our children have improved and grown. And the kids are really getting some concentrated granddaddy-granny time, which was much needed.
I think things are settling down, as much as they can for us, right now. The weather is improving, our children are improving, our jobs are good…I almost hate to put it in writing but I’m really not that superstitious. I’m content at the moment and that is a very nice feeling.
