Gee, as if I needed anything else to bring me down, tomorrow would be First Holy Communion for my kids tomorrow. I got a call from one of them today asking if there were still going to make it sometime. I assured them that we will still do it as soon as the church is opened back up. I decided to send them all an email, assuring them that we still 'have a date at the table, the table of the Lord.' I have a brother and a sister in my class that the replied back that they are still practicing their song the class was going to do "This Little Light of Mine" I have a neat version of it that is interactive and they love it. Spent three hours outside today cutting grass. It was so long, I had to cut it at the highest height I could and then go over it at 3 inches. Was quite some work. Wouldn't have been so bad had I not fallen down the three steps to the yard. So it has been a fun day. Oh and by the way, our a/c decided that 19 years was all it was gonna work, so it was 89 degree with no a/c. Utilizing ceiling fans and an oscillating fan, and we are surviving. Good reason to make strawberry shortcake for a dessert tonight. Not working tomorrow, it will be a complete day of rest!
Brad is doing great, they got the house they went for and are spending time packing and that as they can move in June 14. Glad that they have a month to sort through, get rid of stuff they don't need. Or as he says, we have 5 bedrooms in this house and so anything we don't unpack will be in bedroom #5! His treatments are being done locally at his hospital so he doesn't even have to travel to St. Louis. I am sure when the virus is settled in NY he will go back there. I am so glad that Sloan Ketterling is cooperating with St. Lukes.
