Just like the day before, Sue and Kari sent me pictures as their night progressed. Sue texted me earlier in the day to say she got tickets to see The Addams’ Family on Broadway. Kari is a huge fan of theater. Always has been and is more inclined toward musicals. Even as a young teenager, she would repeatedly watch Chicago and Phantom of the Opera on DVD. In fact, I believe the last Broadway production she went to was Phantom of the Opera. Anyhow, give my regards to Broadway…Even with the fun they are having, I selfishly can’t wait for them to come home.
Sure, Kari is messy (I often tell her that a debris field follows her) and Sue is demanding (I mean that in a good way, right?), but it’s just not the same without them. You know what I mean…? It’s an overriding feeling that something is missing. Something that the dogs — try as they might — fall short on filling. I feel like Gomez Addams without Morticia and Wednesday.
Yesterday, WordPress (this blog’s platform) was experience problems. I hope this didn’t distract from your experience. To my knowledge, the only area affected from a reader’s perspective was not being able to leave comments. It had a host of other implications on my end, but I doubt you would have noticed.
The houseplants really seem to be helping Ryan’s respiratory system. His oxygen saturation level has been hovering around 100% for the past week. I know, this is still too early to make any final assessment but, hey, it’s not hurting.
A fringe benefit is our house smells “fresh”, something that has not been present in a long time. I briefly considered somehow rigging a potted plant to Duke, Ryan’s Old English Bulldog. Perhaps an English Ivy? Rippin’ good, tally ho, and pip-pip.
