My Captain and his parents came with me to Pop-Pop’s cottage at the beach this past weekend to help do some well-needed maintenance. We had to put a new floor on the porch since last year’s Hurricane Sandy had her way with the old floor.
Together they installed a ‘Pergo’ floor. It was a surprisingly simple, though painful, job.
They finished 90% of it in a day and half.
Everyone in the family is so impressed with their talents.
And they looked so good doing it.
They’ve received praise and accolades.
But My Captain’s mom, lovingly referred to as ‘Goggy,’ was hard at work as well.
Even though she suffers from MS, she was in there cleaning and working and cooking for everyone. She, too, received verbal high-fives for being such a go-getter…especially in the face of her disease. She was exhausted, but felt the same sense of accomplishment as My Captain and Papa.
And me? Well, I was put where they thought I could be of the most use.
Story of my life.
