A few weeks ago my Mom fell and broke her ribs. After some complications, she ended up in the ICU, where I’m sitting next to her as I write this. As soon as it seemed reasonable, the kids and I packed up and headed to my hometown (yay for homeschooling freedom!), where our kitchen renovation has been all but forgotten. In fact, in the fog of navigating my Mom’s healthcare with my 4 siblings, I seem to be forgetting everything else. I’m not even sure what day it is.
Luckily, Joe remembers. He is home working by day and finishing the kitchen at night. Our calls are filled with the staccato of serious medical updates broken up by his funny stories of chasing down our floor stain, which has been discontinued, and his vendetta against our local grocery store, which is closed every night by the time he gets home from work.
Here are few shots from the past few weeks.
