Blah—the weather is stinky today!!! Paula goes to the doctor and we are keeping our fingers crossed that he will put some kind of walking cast on her ankle or something–this not being able to put any weight on it is really hard when you are trying to get packed up for a move!!! She has the butt crawl backwards up the stairs perfected by now but I know she would rather not have to live her life that way for too much longer! I think she is handling things much better than I would be—I would be whining and complaining probably and a real pain about things!!!
We are planning to go to the Highlands (close to Wheeling, I believe) shopping with her best friend from grade school afterwards so that will be fun!!! Not that I need much but I do have a couple things that I need to “replace” that I might be able to find there. But it looks like it is going to be thunderstormy all day—-it isn’t now but it is windy and gray outside. Paula says that when they meet to go shopping it is always raining so I guess things are normal!
We were packing up some picture albums and got sucked into looking at some of them and I took a bunch to scan and keep —I hardly have any from when I was growing up so I told my mom that I wanted to look through hers too when I go there and pick some out. I am sure hers are in much better order than mine are at this point!!! Mine are a disaster but that is a project for the long cold winter if we are still in Iowa which I imagine we will still be!
This has been a great trip and I have loved being with my sister! Makes me realize how much I have missed my family and I wasn’t even gone that long!!! But they are important to me and it makes me happy that I can help out a bit!!!
