After her surgery I took her home, got her prescriptions filled, took the boys to lunch, picked up some groceries and then made some home made pimento cheese (not the orange cottage cheese looking stuff from the grocery store) and a shepherd's pie for Mom and her family to have while she was recuperating and only supposed to eat soft food. Then we began our long (well not usually too long) trip back home.
When we got around Jasper, I was getting of the interstate to get some gas when... we had a BLOWOUT!! :(
This really nice soldier put on my spare for us and then we headed up the road (after several frantic phone calls to my stepdad Jerry... I don't usually panic, oh well) to see about getting a new tire.
We stopped at the Wal-Mart in Jasper where the tire center was supposed to have been "closed" for ten minutes already, but the sweet manager was there and he agreed to put a new tire on my car and so we were on our way once again.
This put us a good bit behind on our time table but we were safe and that's what matters.
Grandmother is not doing better and so we are a bit worried and sad about that but otherwise I hope this week will get back to normal. I am so ready to just have my routine back. I have a lot of projects half started and REALLY need to start finishing them!! I only have two more weeks of classes (I think) and so then I'll have a break before the next one begins.
I will try to get some pics up this week, I have taken lots.
