I got lots of good together time with Johnny this past week. Jeff and I didn’t get a perfect fall photo taken together, but oh well, I guess there will be another time for that. Although for our last wedding of the year (we had 4 total) it was a really fun wedding. Each wedding had a different vibe, one for his family, one for my family, one in my hometown, and one slightly out of town. Getting to Red Wing for a 3:30 wedding service took a little rearranging and a little faith in a shuttle bus, but it all worked out and was a great time.
Johnny loves a late night but thankfully the nights I had him he was fairly reasonable, and while we didn’t get to sleep in, at least we got a walk in each day. He doesn’t always love the idea of going for a walk (he sits in his wheelchair) but it is good to get out in the fresh air.
I have Friday off this week as I have a girls weekend and one of the friends is flying in about noon on Friday. But since Johnny goes to Florida soon, I’m kind of thinking it wouldn’t be the worst idea to drive to Aitkin Thursday after work and have another night visiting him. (Its a good thing I like driving and don’t mind a couple hours in the car). Of course it all depends on how work goes because it is still definitely part of the busy season, the volume has slowed, but now we are in the middle of medical reviews and adjusting quotes based on competition and medical updates (because they never give us all the information right away because that would just be too easy).
I’m definitely happiest when I get together time with Johnny, and phone calls are good, but they aren’t the same. How often do you talk to your siblings? Do you like to hang out together? or is a phone call with updates good enough?
