I am so excited for our weekend to the Oregon Coast! We are leaving tomorrow late morning (hopefully before noon)...and will be gone until Sunday...We were given a special gift of 2 nights hotel and a special private tour at Rogue Brewery for Christmas (ok well it was a gift for my husband but as his care giver I get to go along!)....
We are leaving our two teenagers home alone for the the first time....they are 18 and 16....They are excited for the freedom as well....They are good kids and we laid out the ground rules, no friends/girlfriends over (two exceptions with life long friends that we trust completely) must take care of the dog & cat, be home every night...No driving moms car as they have their own cars...no candles.....stay out of the booze! LOL ~
I am beside myself with excitment and nerves. It will be the fist time we are staying in a hotel without help from some friends to lift my husband and we have a hydrolic lift in our bedroom so I have assistance in lifting him from bed etc....I'm nervous about showering him etc, but we are taking our shower chair/toilet riser and he has a new comfy power wheel chair. I'm sure we'll be fine, and it will be good to get away from home and focus on eachohter and FUN!
