My first time requesting a hall pass so am asking early!

Recommended Posts

Our 12th wedding anniversary is Monday the 21st. I took Dave to the ER on our 10th anniversary two years ago and he was diagnosed. what a milestone, huh? anyway, we decided we need to get away together, despite him feeling like doggy doo doo, so on the 17th, after he goes to court for a speeding ticket he got on my birthday in early Feb. before he found out about all the mets and starting feeling like doggy doo, we are heading to the outer banks of NC for a long weekend, Thursday until Sunday.

He got a speeding ticket in an obvious speed trap - new speed limit of 45 right after a 60 mph zone and he was going 61 - and he has a clean record - so we're going to play the cancer card, play the clean record card, and hope the judge decides we have enough troubles. I doubt Dave would make it through an eight hour driving school session anyway!

Just the two of us. sleeping, seafood and a whirlpool bath in the room!

Dave's parents will take care of Faith and the dogs for us while we're gone.

Prayers, please, that Dave is still up to the trip in a week. And that our visit with the neurosurgeon on Monday doesn't make his prognosis any worse. Let's hope this dude says, yep, you have enough mets, this time it's radiation neucrosis in your noggin' FOR SURE.

Well I'll grant your pass providing you give me a full report on the Outer Banks. We have been thinking about going there ourselves sometime. Let's see...how about a plane pass for Kitty Hawk?

Have a wonderful time you deserve it!

Sounds like a great plan, and I will say special prayers that you get there. While you are there, can you sneak in a massage?

And yes, play that cancer card!!! It is ours to play. You may still have to write a check to the municipality, but it shouldn't cost any points. I just got stopped for going 39 in a 25, but when I got pulled over I was under the 45 mph speed limit sign. Since I had no priors, I got fined for "a restricted liscence plate". I took that ticket and ran.

We're back. it was great to walk into a CLEAN house (the cleaning guy came Friday, our realtor held an open house on Sat.). BUT, I got SICK while we were gone, we're talking running high fever for two days, couldn't get out of bed, sick. Dave did GREAT. lots of energy, did all the driving, took care of me. not getting his chemo this week probably helped alot with that . . . but it was nice to be sick next to the seashore anyway! Faith went to visit her cousins with Dave's parents and it sounds like she had the time of her life - the center of attention of a bunch of neighborhood eight year old girls. can't beat that for a three year old.

the realtor had a very successful open house, 22 couples showed, and he's going to be working with one this week to see if they can sell their house and be able to put an offer on ours. Keep everything you have two of crossed that this works out!

Returning the hall pass . . . .
