I wrote Trying to Keep Calm a few days ago about Shauna's trip to the train station and our reluctance to travel in the snow. She drove herself, left her car at the train station, and we drove it back to her house in good weather on the next day.
Yesterday was her return day, and the snow was even worse. In addition, she reported that she was coming down with a cold — and, hopefully, just a cold if you know what I mean. I have a surgery scheduled for Wednesday, so I didn't want to be exposed within the confines of the car because I didn't want to take the chance on it being cancelled.
With both the weather conditions and the possible health conditions as factors, we were in a bit of a dilemma. One option would have been for Sue and I to drive both cars down, so that Sha could then drive herself home. But that would have meant that both Sue and me would be driving in bad weather and that one of us would be driving an unfamiliar car as well.
We stewed over this problem for a long time, but it turned out that Shauna was able to contact her Ex who agreed to pick her up.
When she got home, the entrance was not properly cleared although she had asked the kids to take care of that little task. So she had to do a bit of snow shovelling after a busy weekend.
I observed that one should never to rely on either seniors or kids.
It's Monday, our usual family dinner night, but in light of the impending surgery, we'll have to renege on that too.
