I feel a bit uncomfortable even blogging about this episode because it is not about me at all. I will briefly comment about the things going on in my life and a few things about the Glamis trip.
A lot has happened since my vow renewal and I literally feel like I am in a whirlwind! We received an offer on our home right as we were taking off on the plane to Cabo San Lucas and after much deliberation on the trip, we decided to accept the offer right before we left to come home. For us, the timing was another sign from above that we were to continue on with God’s plan and start fresh with many aspects of our lives.
That being said, the offer on our home was a short escrow which was quite stressful. I can be a procrastinator and I continually tried to reassure myself that somehow we could pack up a 13,500 square foot home, find somewhere else to live (with parameters that I now know seem a bit much!), and furnish it all within a two week period. Having an amazing broker like John Cain gave me reassurance, but bottom line, there is a lot to do. You will soon get a glimpse into that disaster!
So how should we spend a weekend with such a deadline??? How about head to Palm Desert and spend the weekend with Meghan and Jim?? I know...we are avoiding! Somehow, someway we will get there!
I would just like to address a few points about the Glamis trip. Tamra is fully aware that I have bronchiectasis in both of my lungs. It is basically permanent damage to bronchial tubes that have resulted from at least 16 bouts of pneumonia. I cough 24/7 and can get lung infections with the snap of a finger. One of the stupidest things I could do would be to travel to a windy sand dune where I could inhale tiny particles of sand. I didn't have a negative or lousy attitude, I followed the instructions of my pulmonologist. It had nothing to do with Vicki or Kelly.
As it turns out, I was quite fortunate to have missed the Glamis trip. I can’t imagine going through everything the women did, and I commend them all for their strength. Can’t wait to see the next episode. Until next week...
