Lazy Week

We've had a lazy week. We did our usual Tuesday errands in town. That sounds so funny, like we're out in the boonies and have to hitch up the horses and go into town to get our weekly rations.

We went to the Ford dealer in town because we still haven't gotten our Sirius radio fixed. They called the dealer in Helena where we had the problem diagnosed to get the part number that they needed and were going to call back. Still haven't heard from them. Hopefully they just ordered the part and we can have it installed when it gets here.

We were going to take a drive out to Neah Bay on Wednesday but ran out of time doing our errands on Tuesday so we had to do laundry instead. We figured we could always go next week. Neah Bay is the furthest most northwest point in the U.S. We've been to Key West which is the furthest most southeastern point and being from San Diego I figured I've been to the furthest most southwestern point. Only one more to go! Who knows when we'll ever get up to the northeastern part of the country.

I don't usually write about personal things going on in my family but I just have to say we had some sad news in our family this week. My beautiful sister-in-law Michelle passed away on Wednesday after a lengthy battle with lung disease. She received a lung transplant last April and was doing really well but eventually all the medicines she was taking took a toll on the rest of her organs. We will miss her SOOOOOO much. I'm flying down to San Diego on Saturday to attend her funeral and just be there for my brother Art and the rest of our family. Rod is staying here with our rig and my other brother Donny is going to fly down with me. I hate the whole flying process and thought I was done with it but I guess things just happen.

I didn't even take any pictures this week.

So sorry to hear about the death in your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of your family.

Just as a side note, I'm reading a book by Susan Wiggs that takes place in Port Angeles called Lakeside Cottage.
