Picture
Today, our first full day together with the girls in the Netherlands, was filled with many different, but fun activities.    Starting our day with breakfast around the table reminded us of how things have changed over a short period of time.  After breakfast we were off with Tante Tobia  to find our way through Apeldoorn to pick up groceries for the next week.   Some of our purchases only loosely fit the "grocery" category as we stopped in at the  Sweet Shop across the street from the bakery.  The next shop was the all organic grocery and then to the larger grocery store before heading home.  After returning to our cottage, Susan and the girls put in some "work" time before heading over to Tante Tobia's where we had tea and laughed a lot  in the sun on a beautiful spring day.  Later, everyone except for myself, went for a walk in the woods as I continued pushing towards the end of the "Lord of the Rings".  Much to the girll's delight, Tante Tobia pulled out two bikes for their use.  So they took a "tour" around Hoog Soeren before supper.  Today also reminded us that finding my limits is not going to happen over night.  Although I don't feel like I overdid things today, the pain in my feet increases rapidly with activity.  At the same time, I continue to decrease my medication and wait to see if the team can change the device programs on Friday to give me better coverage. In the broad picture, all of this seems like relatively minor inconveniences along the way.   As we have said to the girls, "patience and caution" are critical to moving though our foreseeable future.
