We're back in Atlanta! I almost said we're back home, which is totally true. However, when I'm in Amsterdam, I also feel I'm home. Very interesting how quickly that has happened. Hmmm.
Anyway, this is a convoluted story but the ending is that we both came home earlier than our scheduled Friday (yesterday) trip. Donica came home on Wednesday and I followed suit on Thursday.
It so happened that while we were gone, Donica's mom found out that she had blockage in her heart arteries again (after quadruple bypass surgery several years ago). So after being catheterized a couple days earlier, she had a stint inserted this past Tuesday. Donica arrived home on Wednesday within 2 hours of Mom's arrival back home. So Donica was able to be up close and personal, seeing to it that everything was okay. When I saw Mom on Thursday evening, she was up and about, acting just like Mom! We even played several games of Spades with her and Lee!
Now she's in the long haul of trying once again to stop smoking! Prayers to the Universe that this time she'll succeed!
So now that we've gone through the mail, YES, I've started reading the last Harry Potter book that was waiting for me. In between straightening all the messes around the house, I read a chapter here and a chapter there.
Finally! Finally all the secrets will be revealed and this long saga of Harry Potter will reach its climax. It's been quite a journey for those of us who have been hooked! For the rest of you, you don't know what you've missed!
Anyway, have a great weekend, reading or not!
