Sister in Town
We spent most of the day with my sister, LoRee, and her husband, Howard. They came down to see a relative of Howard’s that is undergoing radiation treatments. They also wanted to spend some time with us and buy us lunch. So, after taking the Mobile Suites in to have the furnace for the rear portion of the coach looked at, we went back to the house to meet up with them.
Some years back, LoRee had a knee replacement and they now have an appointment to get her other knee replaced later this month. She had some real issues with the first knee, enough so that they had to go in and remove the original, then she had to wait for her leg to either heal or get stronger or something before putting in the knee a second time. For anyone reading this, please say a prayer for her.
She has had her health issues over the years, but she always tries to keep up her spirits. Of course, around this family, one also has to learn to deal with family members joking about things. Just today, Howard related how someone had asked him that with all LoRee’s problems, why didn’t he “trade her in for a more solid” model. His response to that person was something along the lines of, “Hey, why trade? We’ve just about got everything replaced.”
Anyway, it was good to see them and spend some quality time. Our youngest son, Eric, also came out and we all just ran around. We needed to stay away from the house because there were three different realtors in the last 24 hours that called and wanted to show our house to their clients. So, one arrived around noon, one was scheduled for about 2:00pm and the third was scheduled from 3:00-3:30pm. We got back to the house just as the last of the three were leaving.
Who knows? Maybe one will be interested enough to buy. Our house has been on the market for about 2 ½ years now.
