We had a delightful week filled with lights, joy and love. What more could anyone ask for at any time of the year?
Saturday ~ We did the drive-thru light show at the arboretum. It was wonderful. I am glad we finally got to see it. I've noticed that lots of things are less expensive this year because they have to be virtual or drive-thru which makes it more affordable for larger families -- a tiny silver lining in a very difficult year.
Friday ~ We wrapped the week up with a Hot Chocolate Bar for movie night. We watched Knives Out, which isn't a Christmas movie but is a family favorite for those who had seen it before. Everyone loved it again.
The Rest of the Story ~ The rest of the week went much better than last. As suspected, dear husband's thyroid numbers were bad and he started a medication to fix the situation. Hopefully, he will be feeling much better by Christmas. Our family and friends are mostly improving from their bout with COVID. More people are testing positive in my stepmother's bubble, and she is still running a fever every day. Her cough is worse, but she seems to be holding steady. Hopefully, she will be out of the woods by next week.
Anne and I spent a lovely morning touring the community college in a neighboring county that Anne hopes to attend in the fall to study to be an ASL Interpreter. The college is tiny and lovely with a large lake and beautiful outdoor landscaping. We met the director of her program of study and talked all about the opportunities ahead. There are a few negatives that we will have to figure out, such as that most of the classes in her course of study are at night which messes with dance. Also, the college is almost an hour from home on difficult roads/highways that are dangerous during the day, let alone at night. Anne absolutely hates driving, and I don't blame her for her concern. Even I don't like to drive on some of the roads that lead to her college. I am sure it will all work out in the end...these issues always do. She may only do online courses the first semester anyway.
