Year 2/Day 149


Today I headed up to the hospital to see Will’s dad.  After a little while we ended up talking to a social worker and an incompetent case manager.  We got another list of facilities to look at and decided to go to lunch before we went and looked at them.

Well…a “quick lunch” turned into hours.  Plus, shopping.  Needless to say, we didn’t have time to look at places today.

Year 2/Day 148


We had dinner with some of Will’s old friends who live here in San Jose.

Food was good, company was good.  All around pretty nice day.

Year 2/Day 147


We had dinner tonight at Chef Chu’s and it was very yummy.

My fortune cookie was also very appropriate.  :)

Year 2/Day 146


Visited Will’s dad today, and met with the doctors.  It’s all a little strange.

My goal is to just be supportive and encouraging.

Year 2/Day 145


Yet another day of traveling.  This time it’s not for “fun”.  Will’s dad took a turn and has been in the hosital for a couple of days.  We’re headed to San Jose, CA to spend time with his parents and see if we can help at all.

Unfortunatley, we had some plane issues and after we had already boarded the plane and spent a good 45 minutes or so aboard, they told us that the maintenance crew had tried to replace a part.  Which didn’t work, and now we need to deplane and go to another aircraft.  Yay.

Eventually we got to where we needed to be, with a safe plane to fly.  Our flight was nonstop from Atlanta to San Jose…a 4 1/2 hour flight. Good news for us…we flew first class.

Let me start a new paragraph for this explanation.

First class is…worth the money.  Damn.

Free drinks, by that I mean…free alcoholic drinks.

And a hot towel!

Dinner was served, at no charge, with real dishes and silverware. No plastic stuff here! There was even a cloth placemat provided. And peppermint chip ice cream for dessert. Yum!

After everything was cleaned up, I watched Elf and dosed in and out of consciousness until we landed. Once landed, we headed to baggage claim and found out our rental car place had closed. So, we rented a cab to the hotel, checked in, and went to sleep. Night, night.

Back to Atlanta.

Year 2/Day 143


Christmas Merryness!!

The day started off right with a delicious breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, and monkey bread at the folk’s house.  Mmm…

Next, presents!!  How fun!  My folks gave me a wonderful assortment of goodies which I love and Will bought me an amazing set of Prismacolor colored pencils.  Wow, I’m in love…with those pencils! ;)

After all the gift giving/receiving/cleanup we hung around the house for a bit before heading over to grandma’s house for Christmas dinner.  Which was wonderful as always.

Year 2/Day 142


Oh my gosh, yum.

First, I had breakfast with the folks.  This was the best french toast I’ve ever had.  Well, the blueberries weren’t good…but everything else was delish!

Later, Christmas Eve at the Walton’s commenced.  What a nice evening.  Everyone behaved and we played our first year of “white elephant”.  I got a yummy smelling, wood wick candle and Will got…a can of Spam.  Haha…oh well.

Year 2/Day 141


Loooooooooong day of driving today. 

We headed down to Florida from South Carolina.  It made more sense to go from there, then to drive all the way back home and leave from Atlanta.  So, that’s what we did.

It was my year to spend Christmas Day with the family.  Even though we had just seen my folks, grandma, and Dick in Altanta, it’s gonna be nice to spend time with the whole family.

Year 2/Day 140


Today was rainy and gross.

That is all.
