Was going to go to an abilities convention yesterday, where they have wheelchairs and gadgets for those of us who need help like opening jars and stuff. Anyway a friend called just as we were leaving and said he had been there for an hour and was leaving cause the only thing they had this year was motorized wheelchairs - no neat gadgets. Disappointed - so we did a little shopping instead. Going to an old friends memorial service today and having a nice dinner with 3 friends tomorrow night (we get together about 2 times a year, should be fun).

I'm slow cooking a pork roast today. Terry got everything together for me last night since I can't hold on to things. The peach tree is sagging with so many peaches, i might try to pick some if I can figure out how to hold on to them (the hands are not working today). I will try to take a picture of the tree and see if I can figure out how to put it up here. The apple tree is pretty full too, don't know when they will be ready to eat.

Mother's Day

It was very quite, I got what I wanted - a call from both sons. It is the best gift ever when you live so far away to just hear their voice and know they are ok. I wish we lived closer I miss being a part of their lives and getting to know the grand kids. (maybe someday)

daughter in laws

I'm just heading out to get my blood test done but wanted to say I have the two best daughter-in-laws anyone could ask for. They are both smart, beautiful, caring, perfect compliments to their husbands and I love them both.

Had two busy days in a row. Yesterday to Social Security to see if I can sign up for long term disability. I filled out all the paperwork - it will take them up to 5 months to decide, but if I get it the pay will be retroactive to Nov 08, which would be very nice. Today went to the GP he said all the Kaiser specialists are hovering to try to figure out what to do with me. Then went to the dentist this afternoon. Have a gum problem they gave me some antibitioc mouthwash (hope I'm not allergic to it). He said it will turn my teeth blue but they will come back to white. Came home to driveway full of dead bees. Seems the neighbor had a swarm in his tree and he sprayed them with water, they got mad , so he sprayed them with something else, now I have a driveway full of dead bees. Never a dull moment.

Well, I did it, today I turned in my retirement papers. I have worked most of my adult life except when the boys were little. It will be very different and of course getting used to no extra income but the recent health problems made it a must at this time. I know God has something in mind for me but I have no clue at this time.
