Today is a good day. My dad and stepmom drove up from Florida this weekend. This is the first time my dad has been in NY in years. This will be the first time they are both seeing my condo but more importantly it is the first time I’ve seen my dad in a year and a half.
I normally go down to Florida once a year but this year I was in Mexico and it was too much for me to travel again. Especially to Florida. I have to go to Florida in specific months before it gets too hot down there. Florida and my MS do not get along well. The other major obstacle is I can’t really travel alone anymore. I need assistance when I travel and when I get to my destination. My daughter being in Albany this past year we just couldn’t make it work for a trip to Florida. Unfortunately my dad has his own health issues and flying is a risk with his blood clots. This is the first time he’s driven up in years.
I can’t wait for a hug. My dad gives the best hugs. Even though I talk to him a couple of times a week, nothing beats that hug. Plus they get to see my condo which is exciting. My dad definitely instilled in me my love of the water so I know he will appreciate my view. My stepmom will be here too and even though I’ve seen her once over the last 18 months I could certainly use her motherly hugs. I could never get enough of those. I’m just so excited to see them so today is a good day. I might also add that my mom and stepdad are at the airport returning from the Dominican Republic, thank heavens and my beautiful daughter is having a great time in Israel. Have a very happy week.
