Of course I had to run the lawnmower, keeping the jungle at bay helps keep the bug population down and when the mosquitoes are like amazon drones.... well every bit helps.
|The clover blew around but much of it still grew and is filling in bare spots|
|There is a spring here, with a few small damns. We tripled the water holding pools.|

Father in-law isn't doing good unfortunately and we aren't sure if he has simply called it quits or not. He is on 10 medications, doesn't eat much of anything at all, is always off balance and can't remember a lot of things. He needs to be on oxygen all the time but the hose bothers his hearing aids. So not only is he not listening, he takes his hearing aids out and can't listen. After dealing with the entire ordeal with mother in-law, it seems like it's been a year of shit but we are continuing to be strong and patient. It's hard, it's very taxing on our relationship and I understand how these health issues in parents can take a toll on marriages.
That being said, we are all booked and paid up for our 20th anniversary to Rome in August. We also might head to Paris and Normandy in September. If everyone is ok at that time.
