Slow Weekend

The point of this weekend was to do as little as possible. We all needed it.

We got back from Iowa on Friday night. Isabella got a new conformer while we were there. It was about three sizes larger than the one that she had originally had in there and it looks a lot more natural than the other one did. Since she went up so many sizes, we don't have to go back until we go back for her corneal transplant. I'm really happy about that... It is going to allow us to try to get back into some sort of a routine.

One exciting thing about our trip out was our stay at the Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House is a non-profit organization that is designed to help families with a place to stay while their children are in treatment. This was our first time staying and I have to say that it exceeded expectations. The room itself was nicer that most hotels. There was also a well stocked pantry and a kitchen area. The excitement came when I mentioned to the night manager, Kira, that there was a small issue with the sink in our room. It wasn't draining properly. Kira first offered to put some Drano down the sink, but they had run out, so I offered to clean it out. She brought in a bucket and some gloves and I pulled off the trap and out came a big nasty hair ball. Unfortunately, that wasn't the end of the clog. The drain still wasn't working right, so I asked Kira for a hanger and I bent it up and pulled out the rest of the clog. Kira was mortified, but I really didn't mind... The fact that we were able to stay at the house was more than a trade for a little plumbing work.

Aside from that, it was a pretty uneventful trip and uneventful weekend.

More to come soon... Pictures, too.


Seems like you are not afraid to go on an adventure. I hope Misty remembers your skills, beore calling a Plumber the next time. It is good to sse things calming down a bit.
