We have a very busy week. Tonight is the only night we do not have anything scheduled.
Some good friends moved out of state last year and are back in town for a visit. We are connected to them in two ways, we have been long time friends and we also were in a bible study with them for the last few years. Tomorrow night is a get together with the people from the bible study group that know them. Wednesday night is another get together with long time friends that know them
Also on Wednesday is Stephanie's third chemo. That afternoon Charlie and I have an hour long class to explain the genetic defect that Stephanie has and what it means to us and other family members if we also have it then we will have blood drawn to get tested.
Thursday night is a pot luck with the bible study.
Friday night it the monthly gathering at the veterans center we are active in.
Sat night we get to go to our first ball game of the season of the local AAA team. Before Stephanie's journey we had planned on going to the Astros opening game in Houston last night but now need to save our time off.
Luckily we are still in our slow time at work so the work week should not be too bad. Today will be a busy day. I have a truck coming in. UPS gets there everyday about 10:30 but the trouble with trucks is we never know when they will get there (they have a window of 8-5). Once the truck gets there it will take 2-3 hours for me to go through it so if it does not get in until after 2:00 then it can make for a long day. I will be off Wed because of the chem/test but that may mean working a long day on Thursday to play catch-up. My job is only one person deep, they have a wonderful young man who steps on when I am gone but how much he is able to do really depends on his time. Some times when I am gone he does every thing and I have nothing waiting for me, sometimes he only does what is needed to prevent production stopping and sometime he does nothing and it is all waiting for me. If I am only gone one day it tends ot lean towards the him only doing what needs to be done so I expect to have some catch-up to do.
