It's a walk in the park

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I always seem to start off my walk in the park with ear buds in and determination to getter done!9 out of 10 times I do not succeed!I start talking to someone and next thing you know,Im out of time.Hurrying to get some walking in and rushing home to prep dinner for DH!Lately DH has been working every day of the week and he gets grouchy at me.I take it and move on!!Yesterday,I had mild surgery to my scalp,removing a possible cancerous growth.I ended up with 8 stitches!I went to get pain meds,rushed home to grill some flank steak,rinsed some black beans,pulled out,cheddar cheese,tomatoes,jalapenos and placed it all in the fridge.I made a fajita salad and baked some tortillas till crispy.He came in the door and says you're just getting dinner started?SWELL!!Stomped off acting all huffy and came back to apologize when he saw dinner on the table...LOL!Not only did he truly enjoy the fajita salad he bragged and said he would look before he leaps from now on...Just another walk in the park! emoticonSUSAN

My cousin Thomas has downs.

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Thomas came into my life when I was 3,he was born the day after my birthday.His mama abandoned him at the hospital and my aunt took him to foster.HA!He was the sweetest baby,no health problems at all and he blossomed under the adoring love of family.We got into much trouble as he was treated equal to all of us cousins.He was usually the culprit to pranks.He once took a marker and made a face on our grandmother's underwear!!He was spanked and put in the corner.He said grams,I still love you...her face filled with pride. emoticonHe went to the same school and same classes as we did cause he was"Smarter than your average bear"He went to dances,got valentines,had dates(he was a gentleman)and graduated with honors.My aunt passed away and his sister took her place caring for Thomas.She saw to it he went through and finished college to become a physician's assistant.I got an invitation for his wedding in June and I can't wait!!His fiance is a real beauty....because she loves him! emoticon SUSAN

Papa Gino is getting fit!

Saturday, January 19, 2013

He is large and in charge...Papa Gino.He had a stroke a few years ago and fell into a depression(he sits in a trance-like state)Recently he was transferred to our facility.To be closer for his daughter to visit was the plan.If we dont get them busy and make them exercise they get grouchy and will sleep alot.So,nurse Lisa puts on music they like and challenges them to dance or act silly.Trust me they act all kinds of funny,silly and shake arms and legs and a little BOOTY.It's fun and we all laugh alot.Gino sits by the window and watches the birds.Raquel aka Rocky a feisty lady that shines like a sunbeam took Gino's hands and started dancing with him.He didnt speak but now hums!!She kisses his cheeks,brings him magazines,reads to him and WOW!What an improvement!!Gino is so improved that he's going to the exercise facility and talks a little bit.He's lost 18 pounds,smiles all the time and answers us with "YES MAM"His appetite has increased and he started laughing at funny dance time.I splurged and bought him a warm up set and sneakers for our walks outside.He thinks he is Mr.Studmuffin!They are all planning a Valentines party/dance and as he sits at the craft table humming to music and cutting out hearts, Im amazed at how far he's come.The sparkle is in his eyes and we are so happy to see the happiness in his daughters face as well.Sometimes just a little love and attention is all people need.... emoticon emoticonSUSAN

when I wake up

Thursday, January 17, 2013

It's a blessing to wake up and take a deep breath!To take a hot shower, and dress myself.Brush my teeth and comb my hair.Lace up my tennies and put out my cup for coffee.I scramble some eggs and make some toast.Walking out the door Im glad to say,Ive woken up one more day.I am blessed and happy Spark people has lit a fire within me!As I walk my dog and look around to see a car driving past,a little face pressed against the car window pointing at me and yelling HI WALKIN LADY!!!I smile and wave and think,WOW!!I am glad all God has blessed me with.My Dog turns around with her tongue hanging out and smiles like she read my mind.She is getting old and she's pulling me like she got a second wind...okay I laugh im coming!! emoticonSUSAN
