Well. We were all going to go out of town together for Easter weekend, but Dad was still in pain last night and ended up at the ER. He has intestinal blockage so instead of going out of town, he's going to get his stomach drained.
I think this would not be his first choice.
So, the girls handled the disappointment very well. I've made a deal with them. If we work hard ALL DAY cleaning the WHOLE HOUSE then they will not have any chores the rest of the weekend. Also, maybe we will grill hamburgers tomorrow and play in the sprinkler. Just something fun instead of going out of town.
And at least we'll save gas money!
It's going to be so nice to have S off work for three whole days that honestly, I don't care what we do.
But a healthy dad, a clean house, and time with my husband sound pretty good.
