We will be on our way to Everett, for Selena’s appointment at Seattle Children’s with the genetic doctors. Selena and I will be spending the night up there since it is about a 3 hour drive maybe longer considering traffic. I didn’t really feel like getting up to hit the road by 4:00 to 4:30 a.m. to make sure we got there by 8:00 a.m.

We almost cancelled this appointment. Last week proved to be a little rocky for us. We got hit from quite a few angles last week, that made us wonder if we could really afford to make this trip.

Between Papa getting his tooth extracted and the cost factor behind that procedure, but thankfully the dentist did work with us with some installments.

The State hit Papa’s job one more time, his job was threatened to be non existent when we came home from vacation. We were told at that time that he would be safe for one year. On Thursday he came home with news that the new budget cuts were shutting the unit down that he works in. We really didn’t know if there would be any positions for him or what. Friday he came home and found out they are keeping two counselors and he was one of the two to stay. My heart bleeds though for those who were less fortunate.

This week is ending up just kind of a week off. We are still learning in some areas, we are hoping for nice weather when we go to Everett so we can try to do some sight seeing. I am thinking on our way back that we might slip into Seattle. We will just have to see how it all works out. I am sure we will have some fun and pictures to share when we get home.

I will be back on Friday to read what all of you have been doing though!
