Friday, September 04, 2009Happy Labor Day
Life keeps rolling on down here in NC. Will & Ty are watching a scary movie while I type away in bed trying to get rid of nasty head cold. Will has had a busy week. We all enjoyed Brett's visit and were very thankful of him to drive Will's truck down all the way from Massachusetts! Thanks again Brett :) Will is busy trying to gather info and formulate a plan for modifying the truck. He is looking into getting a lift that can be installed into the bed of the truck so he would not have to break down and load his chair. He is still not 100% on modifying the truck and his back-up plan would be to modify Ty's Honda Accord. So we will see what this next week will bring. Other than that, he is looking into another transportation option for the present time. The public transit he uses now really is not ideal. Today he was picked up at 10:30 and did not get home until after 7 pm. It makes for a very long day for him. Tomorrow he will meet with a volunteer organization that will hopefully be a better option- just a little more pricey. The volunteers are also known to be young, motivated folks (alot of them are med students). Tomorrow he is going to practice getting in and out of the truck without any help and then we are going to a friend's Notre Dame football party/pig roast. Sunday we will all head down to Pinehurst for the night and spend some time with the in-laws. I am doing a 100 mile bike ride on Labor Day down there as well. Next Thursday at this time we will be in Chatham! I know we are all looking forward to that!
