He's Home

Just as I dialed his cell phone I heard a truck. Lady started prancing around and whining and headed for the front door. Soon, headlights illuminated the driveway and I saw the boat go by the windows.

Lady followed Sweetie in and out as he unloaded the front seat of the truck. After having a bowl of homemade soup, we talked awhile and he started to nod off. He slept until 10 a.m. this morning.

According to him, the only rough part of the trip was south of Mt. Pleasant. By the time he turned east onto 21 at St. Johns, the highway was a "rough two track."

Today we headed into Ionia for a few groceries and picked up our special order storm door at Menards. His Medicare prescription drug plan has changed (still a higher cost than what he had) so he switched pharmacies. "May as well have better service and easier access if I'm going to spend more money," he said.

When we came home I made a huge pan of lasagna and laid one the sofa awhile. Leg cramps again.

Sweetie moved the boat into position next to the motor home and backed the truck up to the pole barn door. After shoveling the front deck and steps he came in and said,"First time shoveling this winter. It can melt now." Yeah, right.

Thanks for all your prayers and kind words. We're both relieved to be done with everything concerning the Upper Peninsula property.

The weather forecast here this week has been modified - less snow and a bit warmer during the day. Fine with me.

So glad that you two will finally be able to rest a bit. It has to be quite a relief to be done with all the moving issues.

Glad he's home and all is well-ish. We're waiting to thaw a bit here in Redneck Central - I don't think there are four snowplows in the whole state, and none of them are local to Casa de Crazy. The sun will have to do the work tomorrow, but we'll have temps in the forties by the weekend.

I hope y'all stay snug and safe!

Shade and Sweetwater,

Wonderful, I'm glad he's home safe and sound!

I'm plagued by leg cramps too, Treesong. No rhyme or reason but when they hit, they hit hard. Most times I'm sound asleep or relaxed on the couch watching a movie. All of a sudden a cramp will hit and I have to jump up and walk it off. I can't do the 'Spock' greeting on purpose to save my life, but I've seen my TOES do it! The worse ones are when the deep down muscles cramp and there is no appendage you can bend or flex to relieve them.

You have my sympathy. If you find a cure, let me know!

I feel your relief.

Take a deep breath and relax.

Glad that's the end of that.

Two words for you guys,

Ree Lax.

Glad to see the cantankerous dude made it home in one piece finally.

Yeah !! Safe at home.
I wonder if your electrolytes may be out of balance causing the leg cramps(at least partially).
Take it easy and take care. B.

Horse lady, my Granny used to suffer with that, I do occasionally. She swore by vitamin E capsules.
From experience, they are not one bit of fun, I get them in my toes in the middle of the night. Ball up and won't quit.

I'm glad the old man made it back safely!

Nothing like having all the loved ones safe and sound at the home hearth!
