3/30/2015 Week in Review :( and :)

Monday, March 30, 2015      5 comments

I won't even post the figures. I didn't get in two days what I usually get in a normal day. But I must say that I've been using different muscles and lifting more (as in about 20 pounds already!) I knew that being at Sherry's (where there is ... Read more

Today will be spent finishing cleaning up the house and packing. I am hoping for an early bedtime as my plane to Halifax, Nova Scotia will be leaving at 5:50 am tomorrow. I WILL SEE MY GRANDBABY! I haven't seen her since Dec. 30. She has gro... Read more

I fought a cold or something all week. I was so tired yesterday that I took a 1.5 hour nap; I never do that! I do so hope to feel better by Wednesday - my departure day. I have so many things I want to get done today and tomorrow. There's no... Read more

A Few Bends in the Road

Friday, March 20, 2015      6 comments

I knew the sign said "curves ahead". It just didn't say how far they were. On Ash Wednesday, I got my ashes while I was visiting a shut-in from church. When I left, I headed toward Mom's house. I hopped on the expressway to find myself... Read more

Monday, March 16, 2015      4 comments

I definitely felt as if I had more energy last week. For awhile, I wondered what was going on; I was exhausted for the longest time. Maybe it's because the countdown is on to go get Sherry and Helena; I'm sure that's a lot of it. So..I defini... Read more

Reality Check This Morning

Friday, March 13, 2015      8 comments

With Mom being sick and her short-term memory fading a bit, the family decided to keep a notebook on the kitchen table. We write things in there so we can all be on the same page. For example, if Mom eats while we are there, we write it down..... Read more

Monday, March 09, 2015      6 comments

I babysat 5 days last week. I had a Sunday class and a Saturday 3-hour meeting. All week, I struggled with fatigue. I haven't pinpointed the cause; I don't know if it's something specific or it was a combination of everything I did. When I d... Read more

The Bend in the Road

Wednesday, March 04, 2015      6 comments

The bend in the road ahead for me is getting clearer and clearer. I have my ticket to fly to Halifax. When I get there, I will get to play with Helena while Sherry packs and does what she needs to do. Then, on April 2 (Good Friday), all three... Read more

Someone in a class I'm taking stated "I didn't want to lose my life because I dug my grave with a fork." What a statement! I was definitely off last week. I felt tired and out of it. But I kept on plugging. steps: 85988/87876 min... Read more

It was an interesting, busy week. I got things done that I wanted to do. I felt I ate good. My energy felt like it was a little low, but I kept plugging away. Steps: 87876/79572 Minutes: 1005/911 Calories: 4150/3661 miles: 48.44... Read more

The Little Things in Life

Sunday, February 22, 2015      4 comments

It's true that the little things in life - the things that don't cost any money - are the most valuable. While Skyping with Sherry and Helena, I watched Helena tell her momma that she was hungry, without saying a word. She looked at her and ju... Read more

That's the title of my new Etsy shop. I made some scarves recently and decided it's time to see if I could sell some of them. I can add afghans, etc. as I make them. I am also working on crochet dish rags, but I'm not sure they're so good yet... Read more

Life's Bumpy Like Michigan Roads

Wednesday, February 18, 2015      9 comments

A friend of mine passed away last week at the age of 60. That's way to young; it did get me thinking about my life. There's a bit I still want to do. A friend from church just got out of the hospital. I went to visit her this morning. S... Read more

2/16/2015 week in review

Monday, February 16, 2015      4 comments

Considering I had an odd week, I guess I didn't do too badly. I spent one afternoon at a memorial service and another one at the hospital with Mom. The weather certainly didn't cooperate: lots of snow, lots of frigid temperatures, and me want... Read more
