Well today was a weird day. I was just angry with the world and life today over losing my husband. Nothing I can do about it but just angry. They say that that is part of it, so I guess this is just another phase I am going through.

It supposed to rain tonight. Today was hot but the rain isn't supposed to cool us down any. It supposed to get to 90 by mid week.

I played my fiddle solo in the nursing home Wednesday and it was well received. I play again next week. I am learning Sweet Mystery of Life. Not exactly a fiddle tune, but was sung by Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddie in Naughty Marietta. It was requested so I will give it a shot Wednesday when I go back.

I had a bit of a surprise this afternoon. A black snake came in the house somehow. I left the door open and shooed it in that direction, but it hid behind the secretary desk for a whille. When I went back it was gone so I hope it left the house and is not somewhere else lurking.

So that was my day. Hope you have a good Memorial Day.

Me, too, Marcy. I actually got my telescope out last night to see if I could do it alone. Yep!!! I can. I was afraid that the spring on the dobsonian mount would be too heavy for me to budge, but I did it. I have the weights in place on the equatorial. Now all I have to do is wait until the moon goes away and it is a clear calm night.

Today was not so great after a good yesterday. I guess I am still on that roller coaster and will be until I get all the closing affairs taken care of.

I am really tired tonight. Hugs

Char, I am glad you had a good day. I am thinking about you; wish I was there so we could hang out and look at the stars together.

Today was a good day. I am staying at home tonight instead of with my mom. I'll take good days when I can get them as I have not had many lately. I did get some things done around the house. Did the laundry, made phone calls to get more business taken care of.

Went to a revival tonight. Got home late. Well, it is my bedtime. I am a early to bedder now.

Hi everyone. The shuttle and space station have separated but it doesnít look like there will be any good passes over the U.S. Rats.

We had a busy weekend. Friday night was the astronomy club meeting, yesterday we went shopping to Denver after Marty was done playing golf and today I did shopping, laundry and we met some friends for supper. Can it be almost Monday again? Say it ainít so!

Char, I am sure you will have many bad days but I hope they will become less frequent. I am sure many things will be sad and difficult for you. That is great you have dropped a few pounds and are not craving junk food. I have been so bad lately; I plan on working on it seriously this week. Grr. How nice you are feeling good about cleaning and organizing your house. I so need to work on that myself. I donít mind it once I start but lack the motivation to begin that initial step. How sad a friend of your lost her husband the same week; I think spending time with her will be beneficial to both of you. I a relieved to hear you are sleeping pretty well. I think the Olympus cameras are really nice.

Take care and have a great week.
Marcy

Hi all, I have my good days and bad days. I have actually found myself piddling with my telescope base. I put the weights on the equatorial for my Harding. It was lonesome doing this alone.

We are supposd to have some pretty days and nights next week so maybe I can go out and take a spin around the heavens. We will see if I am up to it.

My weight is dropping some and normalizing. Not quite so many cravings for junk food.

I have plenty of time now for cleaning, rearranging, and organizing so I have done that. Today I am sitting in my house feeling good about it. I love my new vacuum. It is bagless and I use it everyday just because I like it. I guess I am throwing myself into cleaning.


I have planned a day out to lunch with a friend who lost her husband the same week I did. Our husband's obits were in the same obituary section. I had not realized it but she did and saw me in the post office this week and we talked for a long time. It was almost like it was meant for us to reconnect.

Yesterday and the day before were the worst days I have had, but today is okay so far. Someone said these feelings come like waves. I am staying on my fibro meds which also help me sleep (most of the time).


Woohoo for school being out, Marcy!!!

By the way, what do you think of an Olympus E-425 DSLR for astrophotography?

Hi everyone. Classes finished late Wednesday night. Thursday night and last night I went out for awhile but today has been strange not having papers to grade.

Marty got back from Chicago today. I made lasagna for supper. Tomorrow should be nice so I hope to get in a walk while Marty is playing golf.

Char, sorry I forgot to start May for us. Good plan to get a new month going. Cleaning up and organizing the house sounds like a good idea to keep you occupied. You are in my thoughts.

Hi Pam.

The shuttle and space station are flying over tonight but our skies are completely cloudy right now. Rats.

Marcy

Sorry to hear about your loss, and wish you the best. Good Luck. God Bless.

April was such a tragedy for me, I decided to change the month over.

I am staying in my own house tonight. I have been cleaning and packing things. It has not been very cheery around here. I really have not lived in my house since November when it comes right down to it.
I just slept here and did laundry for my dh in the hospital and rushed right back to the hospital. When I had to stay home because of the ice or snow I was too busy with the necessities to do any real cleaning though I did some cleaning from time to time. I had turned one of the bedrooms into a storage room long ago and it needs reorganizing and reclaimed as a room I suppose as I have a lot of time on my hands in some ways and in other ways not.
I just need to stay busy.

While our daughter was here she did more major type work on the house than cleaning, and then we barely got out here and I just started to get the major living spaces back in shape when disaster struck and we were back in the hospital for a week. Then the funeral and traveling out of state for the burial, and then getting things taken care of and staying at my mom's at nights.

Now I am ready to reclaim my home. I bought myself a new vacuum and I love it!!!! Makes life a lot easier with this bagless one.

It was sunny today and I hoped it would hold up for the night. Thought about taking the telescope out, but showers have moved in for the evening.

Have a good tomorrow. I will have a busy one.
