Thank you all for continued prayers for David. We appreciate them very much.

For those of you in the path of that storm named Barry, please know you’re all in my prayers!

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. I am able to ____________________, but I won’t.
  1. I won’t ever ___________________________ again.
  1. The current chapter of my life would be titled _________.
  1. I’ve been meaning to _________ but haven’t yet.

Here are my responses:

I am able to do sit-ups, but I won’t.  At this point, they are dangerous for me to do due to the mesh damage.

I won’t ever go “home” again. It was never truly “home” anyway, apparently.  Texas is my home now; wherever David is, that’s the only “home” I need.

The current chapter of my life would be titled “Enough Already!” or “Would Someone Please Stop the Not-So-Merry-Go-Round, Like, Now?!”  But, this, too, shall pass.

I’ve been meaning to get the middle bedroom converted to our home office, but haven’t yet. Motivation and energy are severely lacking these days. I’m also not 100% sure that my computer will pick up the wireless signal from the router if I move it to another room. It was hardwired for years, but I saw that it could be wireless, so we unplugged it from the router/modem thingy.  It is working fine in here, but the router is right over the computer. I don’t want to go through the hassle of moving everything into the other room and then find out it isn’t going to work. But, there’s only one way to find out and that is to just do it. That room adjoins this one and there is a vent that is open between the two rooms.  Maybe the signal will just find its way through that vent.  Goodness knows voices have over the years!

My response if it doesn’t work. 🙂

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Excuse Me…

Don’t you all agree that it shouldn’t feel like 101° degrees at 9:30ish at night?  Welcome to Texas, y’all!

Weather 11 July 2019

We’ve got it all:  too much water, too much heat, and way,  way yonder too many mosquitoes!

Here are my responses:

I like my hamburgers with lettuce and tomato and mayonnaise AND chili, mustard and onions.

When I was near death in 2010, I had to have ice packed all around me just so that I could breathe.

I spend the most time thinking about waking up and finding David in a condition in which I do not ever want to find him AND wondering who my father is. Both have pretty much taken over my mind. The first terrifies the heck out of me and there’s nothing I can do to avoid it happening. It happens to all of us eventually.  The other is driving me mad. I sit here looking at my DNA family tree, knowing the answer is in there somewhere, but I’m just not seeing it. Once I figure it out, I’ll be face-palming, wondering why I didn’t see it sooner, with it right there, staring me in the face.

Love is a risk worth taking.

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. Summer is a good time to ___________________.
  2. The most recent ___ that I ____ was ________.
  3. I thought I would grow out of _________, but I haven’t.
  4. I feel annoyed when people ask me __________.

Here are my responses:

Summer is a good time to stay inside in the air conditioning, especially if you live on the Texas Gulf Coast!

The most recent thing that I bought was a doorbell with a remote control.  I cannot be with David every second of the day.  My Aunt Mae’s bell isn’t loud enough to be heard throughout this house. The doorbell is set to 110db and can be heard throughout the house. He takes the remote with him when he goes through the house and if he needs assistance, he presses the button, it chimes, and I know to go help him. It was a great investment and not expensive either. It was less than $20!

I thought I would grow out of the need for the approval of others, but I haven’t.

I feel annoyed when people ask me the same thing over and over again when I have already answered it. But, there are days when I do the same thing, so I can’t get TOO annoyed about it.

Thank you all for continued prayers for David. We appreciate them very much.

Please be sure to visit him over at Random Thoughts and Observations.

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. I could use some suggestions for _____________.
  2. I never refuse _______________________________.
  3. I hope _________________________ never changes.
  4. I would rate __________________ a 10 out of 10.

Here are my responses:

I could use some suggestions for how to do everything, get everything done well, and not be cranky and too tired to even breath, while battling insomnia and the “never shuts up” brain.

I would never refuse shrimp or cheesecake.

I hope my love for family history research never changes. I can hope that, but I can already feel it happening.  It has been a big part of my life for so long (40 years), I cannot imagine it being absent from my life. But, over the last year it has brought so much heartache.  Not just for me, but many others.  The more I try to find my answers, the more I see other hurting people in the same situation that I am in, or worse.  We want answers and all we find are secrets. So, I can’t let it go because I want to help them find their answers, whether I ever have mine or not.

I would rate kitty cats a 10 out of 10.
