We are counting down to the Ibot. Monday the 9th is testing day and (if we pass the test as driver and assistant) pick up day - an all-day project.
There has been a lot of drama in the ordering process (including! the company that makes the ibot is going out of business! but we will still be able to buy one! and they will keep servicing them for a while!) but it seems like we really are going to have it soon.
This is going to be such a big change for our family, that none of us can really imagine it. In the meantime, I'm working out the life-changingness in my dreams -- such as Sunday night, when I dreamed that Don Rickels was actually a very nice guy, and last night when I dreamed that J was having surgery to have all his teeth* removed and new ones put in.
In the meantime, life just seems to be happening, but there is always the hum -- the Ibot is coming, the Ibot is coming, the Ibot is coming.....
*J's teeth are actually the strongest thing about him. Thank you Minnesota floridated water!
