Today was a busy, but good day. Hubby is healing. He stopped the pain killers. Didn't like how they made him feel and is now just taking motrin. He's sleeping most nights so that's good. I am continuing to do it all. Read more

Last night as we were getting ready to go to bed, DH fell down 3 steps. He didn't turn on the light and didn't see the cat sitting on the stairs. When he felt her underfoot he took his weight off his foot and slipped. I am amazed that he didn't ... Read more

Lots of Nothing

Yesterday was a hodge podge of things. We went to the cemeteries and "visited" our parents, then stopped at Home Depot to pick up a lamp pole I had ordered. Did another errand on the way home. I think we've picked up or ordered all the lights fo... Read more
