What to do next

So we are staying crazy busy for being unemployed. Ray attends therapy 5 days a week for at least 2 hours so it is like a part time job. Grandpa mac is still here and is busy preparing for his trip south in a couple of weeks. And I am well holding it all together or like to think I am. I did get approved for my Midwifery licensee so it will be official as soon as I can afford to pay the license fee. So than I have to take on the task of making a decision on what to do next

Ray and I went to see his therapy Doctor yesterday to get an idea of what the out look is for recovery. He said he was pleased at Rays recovery but these things take time and Ray will not be driving or working or staying home with the kids by himself any time soon. We will meet with him again in Feb 2009 to have another evaluation. I have been toying with the idea of going to work in Mexico as a midwife while Ray can't work. but I don't know how realistic that is with his injury. We will be talking with his therapist about this latter this week. I found this great blog today from this family that has done what Ray and I have talked about doing for years. They are living aboard a 64 ft sail boat with there 3 boys around my children's age. I thought wow if they can do it why can't we do it. I guess you have to think that there dad did not have a brain injury 3 months ago. But I know Ray will be whole again some day and it is nice to know people are living there dreams and that We can to.
