Time “Marches” On

Rocky Mount, NC

A week has gone by but we’ve still been busy.  On Friday I decided to wax as much as I could.  I took a very nice break in the afternoon however since we had guests.  Nancy and Bill dropped by for a little visit while on their way to Raleigh to take some of their furniture to their daughter’s house.  It’s nice to be able to do that since they have emptied out the house and will soon go to Tampa to get their new MH.

I pushed myself real hard on Saturday and finished waxing Tawanda (all but her rear end which had the bikes in the rack).  It was very windy and cold but we were leaving on Sunday to stay with Gin’s parents in Rocky Mount so I worked 10 hours with only a short lunch break.  I like to have some protection on the paint, not just a good shine.

We have stayed in their house while Tawanda is parked a half a block away on a dead end street.  We walk to it a couple of times a day to run the generator for a couple of hours.  I guess the residential refrigerator uses up quite a bit of the battery bank.  While we’ve been here the past several days, Gin has gone to the doctor for an ear infection, and we have hung up curtain rods and pictures for her folks.  When we helped them move in a few months ago, it was just the basics.  They have a beautifully decorated home now.  It has been nice to spend time with them again of course, and some of Gin’s extended family have come over to check out Tawanda.

Today Gin and I went to Garner for my appointment with the Periodontist.  I had a crown lengthening procedure.  He basically cut my gums back around my tooth and filed off a little bit of bone so that my crown will have more tooth to adhere to.  I have 3 stitches and my mouth is very tingly.  Tomorrow morning we are hitting the road to go visit my family and introduce Tawanda to some of them.  My brother’s birthday is Saturday so Mom is gathering us together.  It will be good to see everyone again!

Life is what you make of it…so make it count!
