As you know, we have had a very busy month. We arrived April 1st and are leaving tomorrow morning, May 1st, but the month seems like it was two months long. We had doctor obligations, social things with friends and loads of family functions.
So this is how it went.
April 1st - we arrived and Graeme came to visit (after he figured out we were not where we were last year) and there were already two groups of our friends here in this campsite we had visits from
April 3rd - visit Mom at nursing home
April 4th - Doug, Graeme and I went to Niki's house for vegetarian
April 5th - I made turkey dinner for Doug, Graeme and I.
April 7th - doctor's appointments for Doug and I to arrange for annual physical (the doctor's office is about an hour from here)
April 8th - visit Mom at nursing home
April 9th - friends Frank and Joan came for a visit
April 12th - blood tests for Doug and I for our physicals

April 30th - UNBELIEVABLE we actually did nothing and got to sit outside after dinner and enjoy the first fire since we got here
Things I forgot to mention. Graeme was at our house for dinner all the nights we were not at our friends' houses for dinner. During all of this Doug did a bunch of maintenance on the truck. He also replaced the CV joint, fan belt, air and oil filters and tried to fix the turn signals on Graeme's car.
So, why are we glad to be out of here? We need a REST!
