It doesn’t seem like a week since my kids left to go back to school. So much has happened in our lives in just this short amount of time. Monday was normal for all of us. I had work and the kids had school nothing different there.
Then along comes Tuesday. I had to attend an offsite training for my work. I have never done this before and it was a nice change to break up my work week. I talked to my daughter at lunch she had an all day cooking lab and was doing well. Mid-afternoon my cell phone rang. It was my daughter and she knew I was in training so it must be very important. I went in the hall to take the call. My daughter had just found out that her husband was no longer being deployed to Africa in June. She was crying so much I almost didn’t understand the news. I asked her why she was crying and she said she is still in shock and is scared of what their lives will hold next. They were counting on the money that my son-in-law would make while deployed to help them start a new life together when he returned. I told her not to worry that we will figure something out and to just be happy that he will be with her.
Wednesday and Thursday were very busy days for all of us. My daughter is now very happy that her husband will be there for her graduation and their one year wedding anniversary. She had her senior luncheon at school and she was given an award for most outstanding student in the Restaurant Management program. I am very proud of her, she has come a long way. They also got my son-in-law signed up for classes next year so he can get his degree in December. Now all we have to do is find them an apartment at school that accepts dogs. My daughter is also checking into possible employment for the fall semester.
I had a checkup at the doctor on Thursday night. During the checkup, I was told I would need to see a foot specialist for a lump on the bottom of my foot. I have a foot doctor that I love that has done surgery on me before. I had an appointment with him today and he told me I will have to have the lump surgically removed. I have scheduled the surgery and now I have to go into work Monday and tell them that I am having surgery and will be out of work for at least a week. They are really going to love me. At least I will be able to work from home.
This week held many changes for my family. Some good..some not so good. We have to accept whatever happens and learn to deal with it. Who knows maybe next week will make this week seem like a piece of cake. Stay tuned….
