Yesterday, Mom had to go get her blood tested at the Cancer center, for Iron and Vitamin D deficiency. We went and got a donut afterwards. I helped Mom pack her suitcases. In the afternoon, we dropped Shadow off at Idlewire in Ogden to be boarded. The house always feels empty without him, running around or greeting us at the door. We went to Wal-mart so Mom could get some hair dye. She dyed her hair when we got home.
Today, we flew on Southwest to Ft. Lauderdale, with a layover in Las Vegas. It seemed weird and counterproductive to go west and then go east. We ate breakfast at Burger King in the airport. On our way to Fort Lauderdale, we were sat next to a lady with her guide dog. The flight attendant made us sing Happy Birthday to a man and God Bless America to the veterans onboard. I finished reading Night by Elie Wiesel, which is a very sad book. When we landed, we rented a car from Budget. We ate dinner at Sonny's BBQ on our way to Miami. We went to K-mart to get some soda for the boat. We stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites next to the airport.
