So. Instead of having Mark's folks in for the weekend, Mark and I are leaving today when he's done working. We're driving to Milwaukee, staying over with his folks, and then heading on to Grand Rapids with his mother in the morning. We'll spend Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday morning/afternoon in GR. We'll drive back late Saturday and have some time to spend with Mark's dad Sunday before we come home Monday.
All of this is subject to change if Grandma Lyzenga's condition changes. I'll have some internet/e-mail access over the weekend. I won't be updating my real journal, but I may do a quick note here if anything happens that seems to require it. I also won't likely be writing lengthy e-mails after midafternoon today, so if you want to catch up on e-mail with me, now's your chance. You can still reach me if you have something important. Or if you write to timprov or comment on his journal, I'll be in touch with him about our plans, and he can pass information to me.
Today is Mark's birthday. Tomorrow is his mom's birthday.
We're trying to plan for all reasonable contingencies. I can't say it's a great time, but I think we're doing the right thing to go over there.
