Yesterday was busy from morning to night, starting with the monthly resident’s meeting at the clubhouse with free coffee and donuts provided by the managers. It was an informative meeting and I was able to see some of the folks I had met on previous stays here. There are two upcoming events that we thought we would go to - Chili Cookoff and Valentine’s Dinner and Dance, but we forgot to sign up immediately after the meeting and they had already taken the signup sheets down when we got there about a half hour later.
After our walk, I headed out to Monica’s house. She lives in Peoria which is almost 50 miles away and an hour’s drive. We both had tears in our eyes when we saw each other and her 3-month old son, Logan is as precious as a baby can be. He has recently started to smile, have eye contact, and coo. We were joined by Nan, Dale, and Karen (Monica’s Grandma) - had some lunch while Logan napped and then Nan and Dale left to run errands. I held and fed Logan and had a wonderful visit with Monica and we were joined by Loren when he got off work. Monica and Loren will be wonderful parents and Logan will have a good life filled with love.

I left there by 3:00, hoping to avoid some of the rush hour traffic but it took me an additional half-hour to get back to Apache Junction with a few backups along the way. Tom and I had dinner at Panda Express - it as fresh but flavorless.
