Make Me Wonder.....
Our trip was very enjoyable. I have to say that I was a bit taken back when George said to me Sunday afternoon are you going to be ready in a little while to go? I thought we were leaving on Monday, but okay baby you are the driver. It was a nice trip home, we stopped about an hour into it and got some chicken nuggets and onion rings, those are my favorite fast food at BK right now. George was pretty impressed with them too. Wouldn't want to make it a regular thing but for something quick, it fills the void.
George and his dad went fishing on the bridge which was the plan and one of George's buddies that he grew up with went along too. They had a great time and even stopped at this "little hole in the wall" place to get some Coney Island hot dogs. Bless his heart his dad hasn't stopped there in years. He was so excited to tell me "I ate three of them." He is really looking good and eating great. He loves those pork rinds too. I don't think that he stopped eating the whole time we were there. It made my heart just soar to see him doing so much better.
He has also bought a truck, so it needed the radiator worked on, it was leaking so George took it out of his truck and fixed it. Then put it back in, of course they had to test drive it to make sure that it didn't leak, so they went to the hardware store. George had his dad to drive, to make sure that all was okay for him to continue to drive. George said he did really good, drove a little slower but no wide turns or following to close, he did really well, I guess those eye surgeries worked well.
I spent most of the time with his mom. She has gotten cranky, not sure why. However the Maryland crab cakes were a huge hit. She was so thrilled with them. I think she ate the most that night that I have ever seen her eat at one sitting.
She said a few things that really got me thinking about the phases of our life, real eye opener. She was talking about how they had wanted to travel the east coast and up into Canada into Alaska, but that just didn't happen and now with their health it won't.......Why is it that we always put things off for whatever made up reason? Why is it that the things we want to do, we don't? But yet if it was for someone else or a child we would make it happen. Things that we want to do, need to be done when we are able to do them, that is our bodies are able to do them. There will always be a reason why we can't do something, but why is that? It is only things that we want to dream about doing? Or are they things that we really want to do, but scared of trying?
