On the other hand it's a chance for us to remember what's really important. Spending time with friends and family. Reaching out to people we may not see much of anymore, but have a history with. It's funny, we have never even come close to using all of our cell phone minutes every month until now.
Great America yesterday was a perfect day. The weather was beautiful, the lines were short, the kids were excited and Mike's brother Ed & his wife Colleen joined us. Mike was tired, but was able to catch a quick nap while we rode a train around part of the park. Why would we want to sit at home and wait when we could be doing something fun? Without being fatalistic, we want to do as much as we can while Mike is feeling fairly well. At the minimum he's having major surgery in just over a week and will be recovering from that for at least a couple of weeks.
