I had a great time at conference. I thoroughly enjoyed reconnecting and making new friends. Even though this was my eighth conference, I'm always amazed at the sense of acceptance and empowerment that I feel when I'm around such a large gathering of amputees. For a few days every year, it is refreshing to be in the majority!
Even though I
had a wonderful few days away, it is nice to be home. The boys smothered
me with hugs and kisses as soon as we were reunited. Timmy immediately
began to squeal with joy and sung the tune to "Twinkle Twinkle Little
Star" with glee. A true reflection to his excitement, Robby even stayed
off the cell phone during the drive home. Scott, frazzled and tired,
looked more relieved than happy when we were reunited.
most of the summer, this week we have no plans. We're staying home and
relaxing. Our Summer of Awesome is starting to wind down (those back to
school commercials are constant reminders that September is only a few
weeks away), and while we don't have any grandiose plans, I'm sure we
will squeeze in some local adventures. (Hopefully the rain will stop so
we can return to the pool.)
The weather is dreary and wet today
and I'm planning on using the afternoon finishing up laundry and
working on some looming projects. Hopefully Timmy will be content with
some cartoons and his trains. After the excitement of the past few
weeks, I think we could all use some downtime!
