A couple of weeks ago, we spent a sunny Sunday afternoon at George Washington's house.
It's just a few miles from our house.
We aren't exactly neighbors... but it's not that far!
No offense to GW, but we were really there to meet these people.
This is Colin and Heather. I met heather online through our blog and a spinal cord injury support site. We have become what I call "SCI sisters." We can relate because we both juggle all this wheelchair business and all of the related business that comes along with it. You have to check out Heather's blog to see the adventures that she and Colin have been on, and they are crazy adventurous especially considering he has only been injured LESS THAN A YEAR. You guys, traveling with all of this mess is NOT easy. I have to give them mad props! I wish we would have had more time to visit with them when they were on vacation in DC, but it fell during a CRAZY week.
But the BEST part was this.
But not being alone with it... is comforting.
Talking about wheelchairs and gloves and cushions and rehab and medications and all of that stuff with someone else who totally gets it is way cool.
George Washington's house was pretty cool.
But spending an afternoon with our friends Heather and Colin: even cooler. Thanks y'all! We hope to see you again!
