After turning down several places, because I couldn't walk up 4 to 5 hills, I could use skis and skates, just to come down. I had to redo my app. I thought, OK, this is another year or so and I am at the bottom of the list. I put the app. in on July 7th, and sent a letter and found out that I am #1 in two places. I would prefer Luau. It is on the bus line.

I was so nervous I was in the bathroom all day yesterday. I had refused the one because, I loved it, windows everywhere, but I would need a washer and dryer. But it was perfect if you had a car. Then when they contacted me the next time I told them that I couldn't leave my sister. SO, as soon as someone moves into a 1 bedroom, or whatever, I will get the efficiency.

Yes it is small, but I do not need much. I will pretend I am at the YWCA with a full kitchen. At 65 1/2 I do not need stuff. Keep me in your prayers. I would really like LUAU, it is on the bus line, and 1 block down, not over, DOWN, there is a Coleman's Fish Market, and a 2 block market of all kinds of shops.

    It's amazing how freeing it is to have less "stuff". I have been working on getting rid of my clutter for years! Hope you will get the place that is perfect for you.

    This sounds promising and just what you need. You would have freedom to move about and do what you want. You are in my prayers.

We went to family reunion. As soon as I saw my cousin Nancy I grabbed her arm and said, I need to ask you several questions. (1) How is your relationship with your sister. (2) How did everyone celebrate the holidays, since your mom died 2 years ago?

My Aunt Mary dies 2 years ago, and at the funeral, Nancy's husband shocked us all by giving a speech on care givers. My cousin, Nancy's sister, Marybeth worked as a teacher, and she couldn't help out with her mothers care. After ward when they piled into the limo to go to the grave site, Nancy's kids, grandkids, Uncle Jim and Nancy and hubby squeezed into the limo, Marybeth and her family had to drive their own vehicle.

Now time went by, and Nancy took her sister out for lunch on her birthday. Robbie, Nancy's husband walked in and said,"Isn't it time we buried the hatchet? to Marybeth saying Only in your head."

My concern is for their father. He is 88. This is hard on him.

Found out someone else died, my Aunt Jerry.

I was glad to get home, I cried half the time I was there. Everyone knew I was having a bad time. But good to see everyone.

    Joyce, I didn't get to read this last night. I am sorry to hear your day was not what I had hoped. I have a limited time on the computer here. I am going to try to watch the card now. I hope today was better. I am sure it was good to see most of the family.
Take care. emoticon

    I'm so sorry you had such a bad time. It's bad enough to lose family members without
everyone arguing. I hope someone looks after the father. (When you remember your trip - try to think of the the good things that happened). emoticon emoticon

Baby Sat Today!

Thursday, April 24, 2014

My sister's youngest, age 40 1/2, had twin boys 10 1/2 weeks ago. I said I would watch them.

These kids didn't sleep hardly at all today.

I am so exhausted.

Talk to you all tomorrow, after I get a good nights rest. Love

    I know what you mean. I've watched my 2 grandchildren various times and after 7 or 8 days in a row I'm exhausted. I'm sure you'll sleep "like a baby" (pun) tonight. Hit the hay early if you can. Good luck. P.S. I had twins many years ago and I dreamed for the night that they BOTH would sleep through the night.

Spring Weather!

Friday, April 18, 2014

I cannot believe the silly weather we have had this year. An extremely long and hard winter, and now it seems Spring is finally here.

Yesterday I climber Mt. Everest, my sister's back yard, cleaned up twigs and branches. I thought I would have to spend the night up there. I was exhausted, plus I needed my Inhaler when I got down.

I do not know what she will do next year without me. REMIND me of this, if I am not gone by next year.
