Glad your hubby has a "get away" at the neighbors! It is good for you both. Along with family, yep it is good to have a support system you can depend on. I will have to admit that I was scratching my head over your post. Know that you were his escort on the adventure...now it all makes sense!! Just one of those things that happens when you only have words to explain. Both of my parents wander/wandered. Dad slipped away a couple of times at home and a few more in AL. Mom just ran out with you watching and refused to come back. Oh, and they never went in the same direction!! Dad usually went out the back door and Mom just had to go out the front.
I have often wondered where that "energy source" comes from that they seem to tap into occasionally. Bad knees, heart conditions, exhaustion... yet with determination they head off with a skip in their step. Wouldn't it be nice if we had that kind of reserve? My tired is as much emotional as it is physical. Those little trips to the grocery store don't do much for the physical but they sure do give the emotional a boost. A normal conversation with the check out gal is nice huh?
I do hope you have another good day and find a reason to laugh and smile. Treasure the moments you have....
