The beginning of December we took off on a trip, planning to be gone 6 to 8 weeks. Our son would keep an eye on the house. All was fine until January 2nd when our son called to inform us that there had been 2 feet of water in the basement and most of the stuff he and we had stored down there was now junked.

We packed up the motorhome and started out for home the next day. 1,700 miles. We made it in 3 long and tiring days.

When I walked into the house the smell about knocked me out. The flood water was creek overflow. Smelly, slimy, silty water.

While we were gone there'd been a LOT of rain in a short time and that means the creek comes up close to the house. Only this time, our neighbor told us, it came up way higher than usual. And the ice storm had knocked out power for about 14 hours. We've come up with a couple of possible scenarios of how it could have happened but we'll never know. It doesn't matter anyway.

It's been a year since hubby's horrible fall. He's doing really great, by the way. We didn't do our annual camping trip to the Covered Bridge Festival but we did do a day-trip yesterday with our son and his fiancé.

On the way home our boy took over the reins and he jabbered the whole time. I got a real sense of how grown up he is when he started talking about video games now versus "back in the day," meaning when he was just starting out gaming about a dozen years ago. I couldn't help laughing. Not making fun of him. I was just deliriously happy about my baby boy being an adult. It was a short laugh though because he was seriously concerned about the downturn in gaming with respect to skills, auto-leveling, instant gratification and a lot more.  I'm not going to get any more into it because 1) it's not what this post is about and 2) I'm not a gamer and I understand very little about it. But I was amazed and am proud about everything he said. The conversation moved quickly to his job which he and hubby continued with while we gals started talking about wedding plans. It'll be here in a blink!

My sister started her chemo treatments. She's had two now. I called her and she sounds really good. My mom had a visit with her on Saturday and she suspects my sister is less hopeful than she makes out to be. I told her we'll just have to stay hopeful for her.

I've been sitting here today looking out the window at the beautiful early autumn scenery. The windows are open. A cool wind is blowing stuff off the tables through the house. The smell of burning leaves. That concerns me a bit though because of the wind.

Gotta go now because the Cubbies are playing the Cards. It's a beautiful day for a ball game!

I've been talking to my other sisters and my mom and we're all scared, angry and hopeful.

Wow, I got a little gabby here...Collapse )

Hangin' in there.

My oldest sister just got diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It's spread to her liver and lymph nodes. She starts an aggressive treatment next week. She's determined to beat it. Of course she is. That's how she is about everything that tries to get in her way.

I feel like my brain is paralyzed. I feel bad for being scared that she won't beat it. I guess it's good that we live 1700 miles apart because she sure doesn't need me bringing her down. She's the oldest, I'm the youngest of five and she was a big part in helping raise me. Everything I do now reminds me of her.

I want to curl up in a corner and make this not be real.
