Sunday, it was raining so no checking for loose wires. I went and put gas in the car and got my free paper, I haven’t paid for a paper in a long time. At the Kum & Go gas stations here you get a free paper with a fill up.
Sarah’s brother Bill and wife Mable were going to be in Ottumwa and so we decided to drive down to see them, Cynthia went along with us. Ottumwa is a little over an hour away but it was rainy and foggy the whole trip which was fine because there isn’t anything to see between here and there. We had a good visit with them and topped it off with going to Hy-Vee and had desert. Well, I bought three egg rolls; I was hungry, and a piece of chocolate cream pie. It was all good and along with the good company, life is good.
Still not call from Omaha, so I guess we will stay put until the call comes. We are not moving the camper but I do not want to go over to soon either because Sarah needs to be careful how much she is on her foot and I am afraid she would not watch that if we go over there to soon.
Today, Monday, I got up at seven and did my three laps around the park, took a shower and had breakfast. Then I decided to look at the furnace and see if there were any loose wires, there were not any. Our neighbor Dick came over and he looked at the setup for the thermostats and we decided to turn the air conditioner on and try to get it below 70 in the camper and then see if the furnace would come on.
Tuesday, we finally got the call Marie was going to go to the hospital and our grandson will be born soon. We left Des Moines about 10 am and arrived in Omaha a bit after noon. I went to Sonic and got lunch for everyone, it was good.
Eli Daniel Hoenig was born at 5:14 pm, weighing 8 lbs 14 ozs, 20 inches, black hair, blue eyes.
Eli and his sisters Emily and Isabel. I don't think Eli will lack for attention.
Both mom and baby are doing great. Congratulations to Marie and Daniel, you have a handsome baby and he is cute as a bug's ear.
Thursday, the baby and mom came home today. Sarah and I went to see Marie's grandmother Jewel today, she is in an assisted living facility recuperating from back surgery. It was good to see her and she really looked good for having had back surgery within the last week.
We head back to Des Moines tomorrow, we still have a problem with the furnace I want to get back to getting a solution to the problem. Either way we will probably be in Omaha before Oct 15th.
