My blessing EVERY day is my sweet Maggie. I thought I would share this pic of her first day of Kindergarten. We deal with so much "old". It's nice to enjoy the YOUNG! Have a wonderful day my friends! I sure am!

My blessing today is that my brother gave me cart blanch on his Credit card to send school clothes to my Grand Children. (wound up sending a target ecard) They have been struggling and my DIL hasn't been able to work for weeks due to the worst case of morning (all day) sickness ever!
Every child should be able go to the first day of school in NEW underwear and shoes. My sweet little Maggie is going to KINDERGARTEN!!

i have 3 blessings . 3 tickets to see alice in nov with my son and his gf . plenty of time to plan so we'll make it a couple day visit with multiple accomplishments . cubes gf is rather shy and thinks i dont like her . of course i do she just isnt used to someone who tries to show it with actions instead of words .
i mailed the g kids a 20 dollar bill each this am . i want them to understand that holidays are not grandpas style . if you care about someone i think its rather phoney to make loving gestures based on certain prearranged holidays . i care about them every day .
im already saving with an eye for next summer when cubicle has the kids . its very expensive for him and im planning a year ahead to help him with the expenses ..

my quality time with edna just keeps getting better . she wonders the halls in her wheelchair most of the time unsure where she is or what she should be doing . i can tell now that the staff is relieved when i drop in each morning because she requires nearly constant attention from them . a nurse brought her to me this morning from another wing of the NH where she likes to wonder . the nurses have themselves a little smoking shed out back so if i spend an hour or two with edna they can have themselves a nice little mid morning break . i still see her care as a team effort even tho shes in nh ..
im gonna see if we can take walks . half a block to a yard sale , maybe around the block , maybe a few blocks to the goodwill store, etc . were gonna end up in that gd little truck sneaking a little country drive . thats my goal . i wont be breaking any laws , just a policy thats been put in place by pia and / or aps . i dont think nh or aps for that matter would really care if they dont know about it . ill have to see how it goes . pia is so ill that shes liable to be hospitalized soon . ALL of the nh staff are bitterly disappointed that our drives have been curtailed . id break the rules for my aunt , shed break them for me ..
pia is a lyin h#or. claims that edna cant have her recliner because only leather personal furniture is permitted . ive seen that that isnt true . pia is laying her azz back in the recliner i bought for edna and she could die in the sob and i wouldnt bat an eye .. thats really sad when personal vendettas supercede the needs of an elder with months or weeks left to live ..
patience old man ..

One more thing I am thankful for today. AC changed things up and I don't see Donald Sterlings ugly every time I log in. Thanks AC!

So sorry debralee for your loss. Kudos to you hun for letting her live her life/passing with the dignity she deserved. I hope you find the strength to move forward now. You've accomplished a great thing and have lots of blessings.

I think we found a perfect part time caretaker for mom! YES!! Loads of experience with AD, loads of activity experience, seems calm, nice and my dogs liked her :) Win Win. She starts Tuesday...

If she doesn't work out, well, I may just have to whine about in elsewhere ;)
