Latest Few Days

My night was short, with very fitful sleep. Went to bed late while waiting for news about Youngest Son’s girlfriend.
She was asked to check on the house and to take care of critters while a friend was out of town. All was well when she went by to get instructions, but while the owner was away, the dog did its “guard duty” and attacked her.
We got the news late in the evening that she was in surgery for an injured hand.
And still nothing updated yet this morning !!! I’m told I don’t need details, but my imagination surely is worse than reality.

Of course, we are up now because Middle Son is leaving on a plane. He checked online to see if the snowy blowy weather is causing problems, but it seems all can proceed. He is so much more able to travel than I am.
Actually, I’m staying in the house and catching up on chores. My guys and their electronic carry-along gizmos are moving right along.

Golly, my last writing didn’t end so good. My feeling poorly seemed to be a 24 hour thing, with several naps helping it to pass.
I went to the grocery store on Tuesday, and welcomed Lucas that evening. He says now that he doesn’t seem bothered by germs, but I wonder if the planes rides back to CA will bother him. He begins a new job at the first of the month, and being sick would not be a fine start.

Husband took some of his vacation days, and being able to hang out with a couple sons has done a world of good for him. We saw even more of the “in-town kid” cuz he wanted to be with his brother. Definitely fond and proud of the boys.

We all went out for lunch on Thursday, and it felt so good to crowd into a booth. Brother banter when they are in their 20s is so good to hear. Really glad they got past those early years, with lines drawn down the middle of the room, and doors slamming.
They have grown up into really great men, and I’m not the only person to say so, so it must be true.

Not even 6am. I’m here on 3.5 hours sleep, but going back to bed while Husband is at the airport across a town full of snow…

Must get away from glowing screen. My eyes have protested.

Will try to update ASAP. Being a bystander is hard on my nerves.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    I spend my best wishes that the young lady’s hand will be better soon. I was glad to hear that you and George were able to spend time with both sons. Take care with the snow !

    I sent a private message to a few Dear Ones about the dog and the injury. Only time will tell what happens next.
    I don’t know what breed of dog it is. Strong jaws, I’d say. Girl’s got pins in crushed bones. Gonna miss work, cannot drive yet. What a mess.

    So sorry to hear about your son’s girlfriend. That is a rough thing to have happen. And poor dog, trying to defend its territory only to hurt someone who wants to help. Argh. Life sure can throw us some conundrums, heh?

    Am glad to see you posting again. Hope you continue to do so. Nice to hear from your side of the world. Said by a blogger who is laying low!

    No energy for a full post.
    Sixth Grade in a room without windows. All Day. even Lunch was short cuz I had to run the photocopy machine. Due to one being out of commission, the other formed a line, so grab any opportunity. I’m so devoted, even as a TA Sub.

    Girlie is doing okay, although I haven’t heard much more in the way of details. Her family is helping quite a bit, they are very close-knit.
