I woke up after sleeping almost 9 hours and was full of energy. Swept thru the kitchen picking things up and getting things back into order and then I went up and made my first week of my temperature quilt. ... Read more

Thank you all for your wonderful sentiments thru this time for me. We have finally reached the end of the losing him journey. My mom seems really good. At the memorial service today she recognized people that she hasn't seen for years and yea... Read more

It was a blast baking all day. There just are not enough reasons to do that anymore. No one wants to eat the things you bake anymore. And I do love to bake. I made 6 dozen sugar cookies, 7 dozen little meriegine thumb print cookies filled wi... Read more
Today was filled with pain.

My shoulder is really sore and swollen today. I don't know what I did that was different but boy is it giving me a hard time. I did get up and go to town to get mom and bring her back out to my little town for her hair cut. She was so u... Read more

I did sleep in and would have laid and listened to the wind longer if the dog hadn't needed to go out so bad. So I got up and accomplished all sorts of things today. The laundry is all caught up, the kitchen has gotten a once over, (including ... Read more

Today I had a list of 5 things that needed to be taken care of for the memorial service on Fri. Of course we were supposed to get less than one inch of snow but when I left this morning we had about 2. Driving home from town was easier than ge... Read more

After my lovely day of rest yesterday I had a list of things that needed doing today. I got up and went to town to check on mom since it was the first day she was alone since dad died. She was fine but had taken down most of her Christmas deco... Read more
Ahhhh (huge sigh of relief) I really needed this day alone.

Today was so good. I only had to make 2 phone calls and they were not the hard kind I have been making. We did have to change the venue for the lunch after the memorial service because the first one only held about 30 people and after some cou... Read more
Todays main job was to take my mom to visit my dads sister.
Friday, January 06, 2017      6 comments

That was a hard thing to do. They did enjoy the visit. Both my mom and my auntie Verna. She might be going on 99 and her body is giving out on her but her mind is still really sharp. I think she thanked me half a dozen times for bringing my ... Read more
Another day of dealing.

Mom decided she wants a memorial service now so that is happening next Fri. Tomorrow I will be taking her to see her sister-in-law (my dads older sister). They have been friends for about 70 years. She can't leave her nursing home so I will ... Read more

Early this morning my dad passed away. He is at peace at last. The past 6 or 7 months have been hardest on him but still hard for all of us around him. Watching him decline was harder than losing both husbands. My dad was never sick and then... Read more

Every day they tell my brother he won't make it thru the day or night and still today he pulled out his oxygen and swatted at the nurses but he's in bed now and just waiting. It is a hard place to be. I've been here before since I've lost 2 hu... Read more
My hope for this year is for the stress to lessen and the pain to be gone.

Arthritis is a horrible problem. Now that both knees are replaced I keep finding other things that hurt or ache. If I walk too much my one hip acts up a bit and this left shoulder really doesn't like playing on the computer and even hates croc... Read more

Both shoulders and my neck are so stiff and sore. I did get into town and got mom her groceries and picked up my pain meds. But while I waited for those I strolled around Walmart and spent too much money. Many of the things I will use really ... Read more
My arm is going to fall off...so I guess I'll go to the doctor.

It hurts so bad today. I have done nothing to make it worse. I did play on the computer about 1/2 hour and I did do some pinning on a quilt project. But I did not crochet. So it should not feel like I want to rip it off my shoulder. The pai... Read more
