These Times are Hard

I know I like to enhance your lives with music..... and just so happens that Red Light Kings have a little bit of ink of the arms. This one is pretty easy to listen too and the lyrics are pretty cool. And sometimes..... Times are hard

Well, it was good to have Trevor call back in and pack his car with things to take back to Broken Hill. He was disappointed that some of what he had planned to take back had been taken by the men from the local Men's Shed that I had allowed to take tools. Unfortunately that included some of his! But when your children say no, they do not want...

The saga continues

Ray hasn't been walking, except up and down the stairs for the bedroom, all winter long. And popping in and out of the car, but lately he seems to prefer waiting for me rather than coming in the stores. Hasn't had the AFO on even once. Then the other day I asked him why he doesn't get into his wheelchair by himself anymore, which he can do...

Filters

Posted by srademacher in spacie1's Blog, 23 March 2014 - - - - - - · 112 views

Filters I used to have an Aunt who would open her mouth and say whatever was on her mind, without any concern for how biting her words could be. I always thought she had no filter between her brain and the words that came out of that mouth. I don't know if it's just plain rudeness or brain farts, but lately we've run into a few older ladies just like...

I went back to work 2 1/2 weeks after my stroke in January 2014 because being a nurse, I thought I was "superwoman." Well, it finally hit me that I am not her! I have tried so hard to do my work but my body has been telling me...
