(Zack on the playground at Coyote Ridge.)
The next stop on our drive was at an open house in the Castle Pines North Development. It was a foreclosure so the house was totally empty and was some what beat up. Zack and I enjoy stopping to just look around at open houses. We have become common sites to the realtors in Willow Creek. Zack typically moves through an open house quickly trying to see if there is anything unusual for his exploration. I take a little bit longer trying to gather ideas for how we can remodel and redecorate our house. Unfortunately from this house I learned nothing. A nap was in order once we returned home around 3:00PM. The rest of our day has been low key and slow. A couple that lives several houses up the street from us - the Turners stopped by to ask me some questions about IBM. The husband was laid off this past week from Comcast and has gotten a job interview with IBM in Boulder for later this week. I answered some basic stuff but hopefully later this week I will be able to provide him with some additional information that will help him land a job at IBM. I didn’t feel like cooking so Zack and I went out to the local “quick” pasta place for dinner – Pasta Bella. It is located next to Maggie Moos – the ice cream place, so I got Zack and ice cream cone as his after dinner treat. This last week has been very tough on him – seeing me be so sick and not having me able to do much with him, so I intend to do a lot of fun and happy things with him in the coming weeks as I feel better. I have an appointment with the surgeon at 8:00AM tomorrow morning. Luckily Zack has a before school club tomorrow that starts at 7:20AM, so I will drop him off and then head to my appointment. I am hoping that he says that things are OK and I can really move on the road to recovery. I still have a fair amount of swell around my neck in places and I am so hoping that does not mean they have to go in and drain more “abscess stuff” again. Tomorrow will be a very tough day with work as I haven’t even been on my work e-mail since Wednesday afternoon. So I am sure there is going to be a ton for me to address. I know I still won’t be feeling 100% so it will be a difficult day – but I just have to soldier on. We hope everyone has had a great weekend. Thanks and peace to all!
