4th of July 2014

Friday, July 04, 2014

Wishing all those who observe Happy 4th of July.
I hope you are having a good day. It is rainy, dark, humid and icky here in New Hampshire. Most all of the fireworks around the area have been cancelled tonight.

I found out my Godmother passed away the other day. I haven't sene her in many many years, she was my father's sister, she was older than he was.

My daughter and her son are moving today, she and her husband are doing a trial separation even though he does not want her to leave. I know she will be just fine!

Still trying to deal with my sister's death, it is not easy. So many times i want to pick up the phone and tell her about a new craft picture I saw or a neat place I found to shop/browse through or a new place I found to eat or things to do while she is here for vacation. this hurts so much!!!

I got a Spark pedometer, and to me, that is all it is, a step counter, a $60.00 step counter that syncs to my computer. It works ok, I wear it every day and it pushes me to go 1, 2, 10 steps more than the day before.

I quit one of teams that was causing me so much stress and it feels so good!! No more mandatory weigh ins, no mandatory postings, no more being yelled at and treated like a child, no more being yelled at and threatened for posting my feelings about something, no more favoritism. I should have quit long ago, good riddance!

    Wow, what team was that??? I wouldn't have lasted a day. My cousin, who was like a sister to me (in black top in spark pic), will have been gone four years on July 3. Seems like yesterday and a day hasn't gone by that I don't miss her. It's tough, for sure.

My Sister passed away

Sunday, June 15, 2014

My sister passed away on Wednesday June 11. I so very heartbroken, she was my only sibling, she would have been 67 today, June 15 her funeral will be Monday which would have been her wedding anniversary had she still been married. When will the pain stop? I am still hurting from my father's death May 1, 2013 and now this.

    I'm sorry for your loss. And the loneliness of grieving for family.

Please remember all the wonderful things you and your sister shared as you travel through this valley.

My long journey home begins

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

It is 7:20AM local time on Tuesday morning in Jeddah Saudi Arabia, 12:20AM Tuesday morning Eastern daylight time in New Hampshire USA. I board a plane in less than 24 hours for the 13 hour, non-stop flight across the Atlantic taking me HOME for my 4 1/2 month vacation. I will go to the airport at 02:00AM Wednesday local time to begin the check in process, go through immigration and sit until the flight boards. I arrive in the USA at 11:30AM Wednesday morning Eastern Daylight time. Hopefully I can get a few hours of sleep on the plane but these flights are always crowded with lots of ill mannered, undisciplined screaming children. I'll also try to get a couple hours sleep before I leave for the airport.

After I arrive in the USA I catch another 50 minute flight at 1:45PM to an airport closer to my home where my daughter will pick me up and we will make the 1 1/2 hour drive home. I will be home before dinner. A LOOOOOOOOONG day ahead.

I have my water with me, I will walk when I get to the airport instead if sitting relaxing, I will have to run(with my luggage) to catch my connection. I order special meals for the plane instead of what they offer on the meal cart, I get diabetic meals. I do try to get up and walk up and down the isle when I can.

During the day today it's last minute cleaning, vacuuming, mopping the floors, dusting, etc. Throw last minute stuff in my suitcases.

Sammy cat is back to his normal self, all affectionate and cuddly. I think he loves staying in the house in the bedroom upstairs. Usually he is an outside cat that we feed but we didn't want any more kittens from him. We had another outside cat spayed a couple weeks ago too. That's a far cry from the 5 other cats that we can't catch, but it's something.

Anyhow, that is my day, enjoy your wonderful evening of sleep Tuesday night!
