Back to Normal? What's That?

After 72 very full hours of the company of a daughter and her three kids, a new day has dawned without them here.

No more dealing with car-sickness, bickering, runny noses, whining and fingerprints.  But also no more smiles, hugs, and kisses.

Today I wipe away some precious physical evidence left by grandchildren, but we hope that the memories we made together are lasting.  We even discussed this, and shared our OWN four-year-old's memories.

But, 'normal' will be postponed for a little while.  Tomorrow I travel to Bellingham for cataract evaluation, and probable surgery.  And the day after, to Eastsound for a follow-up check.  I am a little worried about how my eyes will work together until I get the second surgery in two weeks, but I am excited to be through with the whole process, and hopefully only NEED glasses to read.
