We went to see our son last night, brought him groceries and took him out to dinner. He is doing fairly well. It was a pleasant surprise to see his apartment was neat and clean. He is still having difficulties in managing his resources, but on the w... Read more
I am so tired right now that I think I might be sleep walking *grin*. Not a good sleep last night and I woke up at 3:30 am and wasn't able to fall back to sleep. Finally got up at 4:40. My first thought as I got out of back was, " I can hardly wait f... Read more
