Venturing out..

This is the first weekend since our Del Taco outing that Jerry and I have done something other than just going and grabbing some take out over the weekend.  Jerry packed in the adventure yesterday.

First we had a birthday party in Yulee for his grandfather who was turning Ninety-one.  Sharp as a tack and still working as a bailiff downtown, I believe he’ll live to be well over 100 years old.  Before heading out to Yulee, Jerry wanted to stop at his parent’s house to see if it’s still standing.  Yes, we knew that it would be but it’s just one of those things.  Everything was okay.  Some friends of Missy’s are helping by cleaning it out and donating anything and everything to whomever needs it.  We’re thankful for any help on that front right now.  Anyway, the party was good and we visited with Jerry’s Mom’s family.

After that we decided to head to the movies.  Finally saw Avatar.  Beautiful picture, predictable story but entertaining.  Jerry says we have a mission to see all the nominated Oscar pictures.  We do it every year..kind of a fun tradition.  Anyway, that was movie one of our quest.

So after the movie we swung by and picked up some food and headed home to settle in.  Sure enough after we had changed into our PJ’s we got a txt from friends that were in the neighborhood and wanted us to join them for dinner.  We hadn’t seen them in months so we headed up to European Street Cafe and had a drink while they enjoyed thier dinner.  It was a nice visit. 

So yesterday was a whirlwind, today is quite lazy, which I’ll take. 

Parents called this morning.  Mom isn’t sounding well but this is the first time in weeks that my dad has joined in on the Sunday call.  So that made me happy.  Mom is hallucinating a little and that has me concerned although I know that staying in bed for weeks on end is bound to make you stir crazy and a little “off”.   Trying to stay positive and up about it all.   Jerry has been wonderful, he tolerates my roller-coaster emotions. 

Guess I’m done rambling for now…
