It is wonderful to be with family. Today Mike was ending up a 2-week trip in Monterey and came up for a few hours to meet his newest niece. Steve was there, and although Joe couldn’t make it because he was in school, his wife Sarah took off work and brought Alyssa. I love it when I get most or all of my kids together and this was a precious time for me.
I will probably leave very early on Saturday morning to go back to Lassen. I’d like to make sure they all get home and settled in before I go back. Donald and Autumn and with Jeannie and baby in their own room at the hospital. (Kaiser built a new Mother-Child center at their Roseville CA location, and their labor & delivery rooms are so spacious and comfortable, as well as the patient rooms.
It has been as hot here in Sac as it was cold in the Northern CA mountains, although they keep telling me it will get hot during July and August. It is working out very well that I will be able to be on the job at their most busy days of the year around July 4.
I have some pictures but don’t know if I’ll get a chance to post them before I go back. I have about 400 emails to go through before I return to the wilds, and I thank all those who have retained any interest at all in my whereabouts. What a learning experience this is turning out to be! I had almost figured I was about as smart as I was going to get, but here I am, still learning!
