So my quickie trip to Boston did not go as planned…that’s putting it mildly. Let’s start at the beginning.
I drove myself to the airport so that Id have my car when I got home since My Love was not going to be with me. He’s on a road trip to a convention he was going to out of state. My fur face was staying at her favorite 2nd home Bark at the World . My Mom had told me that my Grandfather was in the hospital with pneumonia. I honestly didn’t think too much of it…..that was my mistake.
I get to my Mom’s and my sister is there with my nieces, my Mom and an aunt or two…kind of odd for a Thursday. It was said that we needed to go see Pop. I seem to forget that he and my Gram are 81. They don’t bounce back like they used to. Pop was in a BAD BAD way. It absolutely rocked me to my core…he can’t go yet. We’ve been very very spoiled just to have them as grand parents for the past 37 years. Although they’re only “grandparents” they have been so so so much more to Sister and me. We lived with them for 8 plus years. The best years growing up. I have my best childhood memories with them. My mom worked her butt off all the time and took night classes until she graduated from college. Pop took early retirement at 55, we were always with them. Camping every weekend all summer long and a week in the summer, a trip to Disney. So many of my best memories are living on Eustis St at the end of a dead end having fun for years…..
My grandfather is the main guy of the house…My Dad wasn’t in the house. Pop was. Sister and I learned things that are no longer taught. Respect, honor, love, all the good stuff that matters in life. You get your butt up if you’re sitting in Pop’s seat. From Gram I got “You never feel bad for doing the right thing.” They’re great great people and I’m a better person to have learned life lessons from them directly.
Great news: Pop’s doing MUCH MUCH better. I did extend my trip for a couple days. I just couldn’t leave…not like he was. I broke a few speed limits getting to my Bailey last night. She’s been sleeping ever since.
I had a TERRIBLE weigh in today. I had to pay for all of the bad things I ate all week. I now know that that sucks so I won’t do it again this week. I’m starting couch to 5 K either tonight or tomorrow 🙂
Here’s some random pics of my past week!!!! Egg hunt, coloring eggs, Bailey pics, beer and the best gift I’ve ever gotten: I love you to the moon and back bracelet from My Peanut ❤
