Robert faces rather serious spinal surgery May 9. Stress for both of us, but the chance his pain will be reduced and possibly more leg movement.
Jacque Graham and I leave this Thursday, early Thursday morning April 26, for Mt. Pleasant, Texas -- a long trip. The conference is Friday and Saturday, but we're just required to be there Friday evening for the reception and then Saturday for our workshops. We leave early, early Sunday morning for home.
While we're gone, Saturday evening and night, our great-grandson will stay with Robert. I couldn't go if it weren't for family close by.
We get back to Edmond late Sunday night, and then we leave for the OWFI (owfi.org) conference on Thursday morning. At least this conference is less than an hour's drive away. However before we leave Thursday, I have to reload the van, prepare clothes to go, and hope I remember everything I need for that conference, including for Basket Wars, the silent auction to make money for scholarships for next year's conference.
I'll get home Sunday May 6, and Robert's surgery is May 9. He'll be in the hospital a few days and then in rehab. We don't know how long he'll be gone, but I'll be there all through the surgery, which will take at least 5-6 hours, and everyday. I'm glad God's in charge.
May 19, I'm the featured speaker at the Northern Oklahoma Literary Art Book Festival in Ponca City, Oklahoma. I'll have to go up on Friday afternoon and return late Saturday night. I'm also taking books to display at the festival for 4RV. I'm limited as to how many I can take.
Then June 3 is the combination anniversary celebration to celebrate that Robert and I have been married 50 years, Randy and Janelle for 25, Janelle's parents for 50, and granddaughter Macayla and David for 5. Hope people show up.
Yes, life isn't boring, but I could use less stress.
