Tuesday, September 01, 2015

Well, it has been 5 years since I have been on here, with facebook now who does all these other sites??? A lot has happened in five years, I've lost a brother, and several close relatives, but I guess that goes along with life. I am also retired from the AT&T store. I worked for my boss for a little over 21 years. WOW !! Life has changed in the past 5 years, it really is strange not going to work every day. But I still have to get up and take my son to work. He volunteers at the Women Shelter Thrift store. You would think i would find crafts to do or be creative with my time, but some times depression stops by and stays for a while. They say Karma gets people who do bad things to you, but I just wish I could see it when it happens......... Well, need to get off here, today is my youngest son's birthday, and he is so excited, of course every birthday is exciting for him. Take care and God Bless everyone.

Wow, how time flies!!!!

It's hard to believe how much time has gone by since I havebeen on here. But I mostly check my facebook, myspace even
Well, at work the boss has every site blocked or just about every site. So if you have your work done, you better find something else to do besides sit on your computer.
We finally get to sell the iphone, but now that we get too our boss doesn't want us too. Crazy, Crazy, Crazy, says we don't get paid for selling it so we are actually loosing money by selling them. Life in a small town AT&T store.
We are going to get to go visit kids and grandkids this week end, get to watch baseball game and soccer game, yeah.
Not awhole lot going on here, just the same ole thing.
I am finally going to take Patrick back to the doctor for his hip, he had a hip replacement last year and now it is giving him problems. Hopefully it's not anything serious.
Guess I will try to get back here sooner and try to keep up with this blog better than I have been.

It has been a really really long time since I have posted anything on here. Wow!!!
Hope everyone had a good and safe 4th of July, we had a full day. We went to church Sunday morning and the main guy from the Strength Team came to visit, so he and my pastor (who traveled with the strength team some) did a few feats of strength. I think everyone there had a good time. After church we went out to my sister's for hamburgers and hot dogs with all the trimmings. Was very good, or maybe I was just hungry. LOL We left her house and went back to church for some fellowship and more hamburgers and hot dogs. I wasn't quite hungry yet so I ate desert, ummmmmmm.
Patrick didn't want to stay at the church and watch the fireworks that were going on downtown, so we took our chairs and went down to the park where everyone in town was gathered, and sat out and watched the fireworks over Nacogdoches. It was all good, except the older I get the more I don't like crowds.............. Yiks............!!
Had Monday off from work, was going to sleep late and then unpack more boxes, but of course it didn't turn out that way. Yes I got to sleep late, but on of my other sister's called and asked me to take her and one of her grandsons to Shreveport to the Hospital over there. Apparently the grandson who is only 18 months old got burned with some fireworks the night before. Poor baby he was hurting so bad. No one was watching him and he was outside with the other kids and one of the fireworks landed on his stomach and he must have tried to knock it off with his arm because his tummy and arm got burned really bad. He still needs to go to a special Burn doctor. Parents like that do not need children. Not the first of this mothers children that has been burned. This makes three, he was the second one burned by fireworks. And one that was held over an open fire and dropped on his head. Not good,at all.
Well, back to work today and we are really slow, but that just means I can get my work done.
Not much else here in this small town, so until next time.

Good Morning !!

It's been a while since I've been on here, so thought I better see what is going on.
Since there is MYSPACE and FACEBOOK I don't know if anyone still reads the blogs.

There are many stories about accidents with the game WII, well, I can actually say that if you are not careful you can hurt yourself, as I did. My son and I were bowling and instead of standing to throw the ball I was sitting in my chair. My chair has an angel blanket thrown over the back of it. When I put my arm back to throw the ball, the controller got caught up in the blanket and twisted my wrist backwards. OUCH !! And of course the controller went flying forward. NO, no strike...
but I thought I broke my wrist it hurt so bad. I put an ice pack on it right away.
I didn't go to the ER, because I don't trust those people after my experience with Patrick and his broken hip. (that's another horror story). I kept my wrist wrapped in an ace bandage until Monday and I called my doctor to see if they could work me in. Thank goodness they did. They took X-rays of my wrist and NO BROKEN bones. Just pulled tendons and ligaments. So the doctor told me to wear a wrist brace for a while and rest my hand and wrist. Of course I am right handed and it was my right hand. There are a lot of things that are really hard to do with my left hand. LOL
So word of advise if you have a WII be careful !!

Been a little down lately, one of our long time friends passed away last Friday. We went to see her about a week before that and she didn't even know we were there. She had cancer all over her body. There isn't going to be a funeral for her, they are going to have her cremated, and then have a memorial at the cemetery where her husband is buried. They will put her ashes at the foot of his grave with a marker.

Guess that's all that's going on in this small town.
