Recovery

Shortly after I finished my previous entry, our daughter, Jesse, called. This was the first time we have spoken with her in 6-8 weeks. It was good to hear her voice. This was also good for Kate . We finished our conversation right at 3:00 and had to rush out to a movie that was to start at 3:30 downtown. It turned out that when we arrived we saw the longest line we had ever seen at this theater. It is a small one compared to the mainstream theaters. As soon as we got out of the car, I realized I didn’t have my wallet. That meant we couldn’t buy ticket anyway; so we came back home.

Once home I came inside and uploaded some of my CDs to my computer. Kate remained outside to prune her plants. While she was outside, I took some time to look for her iPad and found it on the floor in the bathroom of the big guest room. I then took it into our bedroom to be charged. I decided not to rush outside and tell her we could celebrate the finding of her iPad. I wanted to see if she might remember it was lost. This had been such a traumatic experience for her that I thought she would. When she finally came in about 20 minutes ago, I was syncing her iPad with my calendar. I told her what I was doing, and she smiled. She started to get something to drink. I took her iPad to the bedroom to charge it and left it on our bed. She is now working jigsaw puzzles on it and hasn’t said the first word about finding it. This puts me in a bit of a quandary. I hate not to have given her the opportunity to feel good about our finding it. On the other hand, I was concerned that it would remind her that she had misplaced it in the first place. I think I may just let it ride. She’s happy.
