This is the good life.

Yesterday Ira and I did a run to Moncton.  I was talking to my mother and the Dr. had told her she was not going to go home yet.  Dad was quite upset and worried so we drove up to spend the day with him.  When we arrived at their place Dad told us that the Dr. had changed his mind and Mom's immune system had improved so much that she could go home.  So we all went in to pick her up.  She is feeling much better and is happier at home sleeping in her own bed.  The dog was so excited he didn't really know what to do with himself.  He would look at her and run full tilt from one end of the house to the other. He would then stop and look at her again and run again.  He kept this up until he was tired out.  It was funny to watch.  Now I just hope Mom stays healthy.

Today we plan to run into St John and do the tourist thing.  It has been a long time since I have been to the city (other than just driving through) so it will be nice to just stroll around. 

We are loving this freedom and the fact that we can set out schedule as we feel like on any given day.  This is the good life!

Thank you Howard and Linda! Without your blog and encouragement we would not be doing this.

Thats it for today.  Hope to see you down the road one day soon.

Settled but no internet

It has been a few days since posting.  I had really intended to post as often as possible once we hit the road but right now we do not have Internet and using a borrowed computer is not always convenient. 

We are parked at my sisters place in St John New Brunswick.  Unfortunately she does not have wireless so we can't just tap into her Internet and I have to come inside to use her computer.  Right now she is working so I have time to just sit and read or type. 

The weather is great but a bit cooler than I am used to and the bugs...well ......lets just say I had forgotten how much of a pain they could be. 

My mother was admitted to the hospital they day we arrived so the first day my sister and I spent in Moncton at the hospital.  She is feeling better now but we still don't know when they are going to let her go home.  I hope today but we shall just have to wait and see.

Ira and I are finally just getting to relax and we can feel the stress just slipping away.  What a great feeling.  I know we are going to love this life.  We have spent the past few days repairing the stuff that broke on the nasty roads up to here and reorganizing so it doesn't happen again.  The learning curve is quite steep right now.  Have we missed our house and property in Pa?  Not yet we don't.  The dogs are loving it here.  They get to run around loose and play with the horses and chase the barn cats.  Not sure the cats enjoy it as much as the dogs but they definitely give them a run for their money and the cats are never in any danger of getting caught.  The dogs wouldn't hurt them if they did catch them.  They just want to play. 

Today we plan to go into the city and explore there.  I don't know St John very well so it will be fun.

Hope we can meet somewhere down the road soon.  Until then drive carefully and watch out for the other guy.
