to write a bit tonight. It’s been so long, and I’ve long wanted to sit down and just write; but nothing seems to line up just right. I “write” in my mind when I’m NOT in front of the computer, but when I’m sitting here, I’m just too tired or brain numb to organize my thoughts! I’m forcing myself to at least begin, so we’ll see what happens!
First, Bill’s health issues: still no diagnosis! He has had a couple of other tests now, and another scheduled for the 15th, but so far he shows to be a pretty healthy individual! It’s a shame that the pain and other issues don’t show up on some kind of scan so the medical professionals could at least pinpoint the source! He has been having a few good days thrown in here and there, and has had many days that he feels mentally/emotionally better. I have been trying to encourage both of us that this whole grieving process puts definite wear and tear on us. This is encouraging in that there is a reason that we are so exhausted, fuzzy brained, and even depressed alot. And, it is getting better, if only a tiny bit at a time.
Jeanne and I, along with whoever is off on any given day, have been getting much done over at Mama and Daddy’s house. Last weekend, Jeanne, Mike, Michael, Bill and I were all over at the house and loaded Dannye’s pickup to the brim with stuff to be brought back to our house. Bill loaded his truck and trailer with quite a bit of outdoorsy stuff, too. It felt like we accomplished so much – and accomplishment chases away depression better than just about anything!
Dannye left Saturday morning to go visit Pamela and Will. They just moved up to their home in the north last weekend, so Dan flew up to help them get settled in. When I talked with them today they were stripping wallpaper from Pamela’s kitchen! What fun they will have turning that house into Pam and Will’s home!
My third grandbaby is due in about 7 – 8 weeks, and I can’t wait! Dannye is going up there, hopefully in time for the birth. Emily has been 10 days to 2 weeks early in the previous pregnancies, so we are just hoping this baby waits until after the July 22 wedding we are shooting! Dannye will stay with Bo and Em for 6 or so weeks, and they are all so excited for this extended visit! I’m not sure when Bill and I will be going up, but we hope to make it a sweeping trip to visit both our northern families. I am hoping Bill gets either some answers or some relief before that time.
I guess I’d better get off. I am leaving you with a few pics. Of course, my grandbabies; both of them had a birthday in May, so some of these are from those events. Bo’s family also went to a family camp with their church, and Emily’s sister took some photos while there. I “borrowed” them from Abbie – thanks, Abs!
I am quite surprised at how much I actually wrote tonight. Of course, I should be in bed, but I feel so much better now that I’ve done a bit of writing. I hope to get more in the groove of blogging – you all need to hear and see all the neat things going on around here!
Have a good night, and
God bless your day!
