It’s All Good News…
Mommy (and Henry) go to China tomorrow.
Exciting stuff for them – but for me, once again, I have to learn to look after myself (financially and emotionally) again.
Yesterday, I did a test drive by driving my own car to rehab. It’s not very far (about 15 minutes) and we figured that if I had a problem, I could still call Mommy. Well, driving was very distracting – there is no way I can check all my mirrors and my speedometer and where I am going all at once. Something has to give. I arrived at rehab safely after going down the wrong street (despite me repeating Kooyong Road, Kooyong Road, Kooyong Road the entire way). For some reason I turned at Bambra. Doesn’t matter, I still made it.
For all those Melbourne drivers out there, don’t worry, I don’t plan to be driving a lot – just to appointments that I can’t walk to but are still within about 20 minutes from my place. It’s way too exhausting and dangerous for me to be out on those roads. And I won’t be driving at night, because head lights and brake lights hurt my eyes too much for me to handle it.
We have loaded up on all medications so I won’t have to spend too much money, so I should be able to survive while she is away. While we speak (the day before she leaves), Mommy is making chicken soup in single serves for me to freeze.
It sounds like she is going forever, doesn’t it? Mommy is only going for 17 days!
BUT, great news, when she gets back we are (REALLY) thinking about going to Bali. Mommy is determined to work out a way to get us there (using Frequent Flyer miles for me and her benefits from my brother, the pilot). She thinks I need warmth and relaxation – What a good Mommy!
We’ve scoured the internet and this looks like the place. It’s a private 2 bedroom villa, which is almost cheaper than a hotel. Because of the private pool, the villa wins out!
And other great news – I don’t have breast cancer!
