The Mustang Is HOME

looks pretty good!

It’s like Ken is home too.  I shed a few tears on Friday……

it's like having  a little bit of Ken home again........

it’s like having a little bit of Ken home again……..

I’m pretty sure he’d have spent all weekend out there working away at something.  That is how it was supposed to be.  Maybe someday I’ll be able to afford to get all the things done to it that HE could have done himself.  That car is Ken.  After all the blood, sweat, tears, money etc. that went into that car, I’m glad it’s now home.

I took it for a little spin around the block before parking it inside.   Once a week I’ll have to start it and let it run for a little while and then, the plan is, to get it insured for a day here and there, weather permitting through the winter, and take it out for a spin….which I can do now that it has disc brakes.

Yesterday at the JIA meeting was so very interesting.  Some great speakers, lots of goodies, coffee and food trucks at lunch, all in a spectacular setting in downtown Vancouver.  What a terrible disease this is…….some kids are very lucky and go into remission for long periods of time, others who are only 15 years old have had to deal with hip replacement surgery!!  They are making some headway so things have changed quite a bit over the last 20 years…..way less kids in wheelchairs but there is still a long way to go.  Our fingers are crossed that our little one doesn’t have to deal with some of the struggles that the older kids had years ago.

The kids all had a sleepover……..we had lots of fun watching one of the minion movies.  Everybody, including me, snuggled down on the family room floor with pillows and blankets…..I was hoping they’d all fall asleep!  The two older ones were done in by the time the movie was over but the little one was raring to go!  We finally turned all the lights out and told her it was bedtime at 11PM!  She wasn’t happy and actually went back downstairs in the dark….and sat in the chair with her arms crossed over her chest…….hrmphhhh.   After a few minutes she came upstairs and crawled into bed with me…..and Karter.

I’m pretty sure I won’t be doing too much today after they leave.
