We are handing in the keys to our temporary home tomorrow.  After almost 11 months, this place is no longer needed.

The most intense part of my husband’s Leukemia treatments are behind us.

We spent 3 weeks at our real home this month and returned here this week for Bob’s check-up and biopsy.  He’s still in remission and we are going home for good now only to return for periodic cancer checks.

As I walk through the rooms of this small apartment packing up the last of our belongings, I can’t help but think back on all that’s happened here.  There were many days of uncertainty.  Many lonely nights for me as Bob spent days, weeks, months of his own lonely days and nights in the hospital.

Game on…

It’s Friday guys
The weekend is here,
Step away from the office
And let out a cheer!

Stock up on goodies
Whatever you choose,
Pull out the games
Refresh the rules.

Boggle? Scrabble?
Monopoly?
Chess? Checkers?
Or perhaps Yahtzee?

Spin the bottle,
Or games in dark closets
Strip poker
Or Chutes and ladders?

SPIN the wheel, Win a trip ,
Is that wheel of fortune?
Or The Price is Right?

Beer pong or ping-pong?
Sober or drunk?
Do you play by the rules
Or spoil all the fun?

Do your friends regret
They invited you over?
Or are you the life of the party —
The joker!

Whatever your choosing
Just remember, have fun.
Be a good sport,
It’s the weekend, game on!!!
