Day by day, week by week, month by month. Where does the time go! My baby, Shirley, graduated from high school in May and this September she starts college. Chris is a sophomore at UNO. This summer has been hot and muggy.

It's another Thursday afternoon and I've just finished reading an email from People to People. Shirley is now in Italy. She took a late train from Paris Wednesday night. I hope she's having a great time. I can't wait to hear her stories and see her pictures when she gets home on July 4th.

I've got to admit that I've missed her more than I missed Chris when he went to Australia and New Zealand last summer. I think you relate to your daughters differently than you do your sons. After all she is the baby girl of the family. I've been having flash backs of years gone by. Shirley is growing up to be an adventurous and talented young lady. I wouldn't want it any other way. You raise your babies to be independent adults and she is showing great signs of maturity. Fly Baby Girl but do come home soon.

Bob's colonoscopy results were favorable. There were only a couple of polyps.

Saturday night we had dinner at Pizza King and Sunday we watched the Super Bowl at Bob's. The New England Patriots played the New York Giants. The Giants won.

Today is Christopher's 17th birthday. How time flies! Right now he's at Family Fun Center with a couple of friends from school. I wish him love, health and happiness.

It is the last day of January and it's a Thursday. Thursday is usually one of my days off. That makes it special. I schedule my appointments and my errands on Thursday. Today my dear friend (like a father to me) Bob is having a colonoscopy. I'll be sitting in the waiting room waiting for the results with his son (my significant other) Mike. I've learned not to pray for specific results. I pray only for the strength to
handle whatever comes along in a loving and positive way. Got ot go! I'll post more later.

Memorial Day

Today there is a southern breeze. The temperature this afternoon is about 77 degrees. It's been a lazy day. Shirley and I made deviled eggs and potatoe salad for the cookout at Mike's house this evening

Yesterday, Shirley and I went to see Benson High School's production of Cinderella. My son Christopher is in the pit orchestra. I love musicals. The kids did a wonderful job. The two ugly stepsisters were played by boys. This past week all of our snow melted. Now more snow is in the forecast. Currently it's sleeting. They're talking about 6-8 inches tonight.

This morning Chris and Shirley had their Honors Breakfast at Benson. It's always nice to go to these things to give them an extra pat on the back. The keynote speaker was the International language sponsor. His whole talk focused on making goals and striving to achieve them. I know the kids are growing up. Chris will graduate in 2009 and Shirley will graduate in 2010. The Benson Drama Club is doing Cinderella this year. Chris is playing tenor sax in the pit. The performances will be this weekend. This week we have had warm temperatures (the 30-50 degree range). Most of the snow has melted, but they are predicting blizzard-like conditions this weekend. Shirley has cartoon club this afternoon. She enjoys drawing and she's rather good at it. After lunch and before all of the after school pick ups , Mike and I plan on going to the zoo. The Henry Doorly Zoo is open year around. We like to go to aquarium and the rain forest.

Hi! I've recently started a weight loss program called Lighten Up. We keep a food and exercise journal and we weigh in once a week. The group concentrates on a more healthy life style.

Today I took our cat to the vet. She's diabetic and we do periodic blood test to see if the insulin level is right. Through dealing with our cat's health, I've come to appreciate just how complicated diabetes is ,not only in animals, but in humans as well. When Squeaky first showed signs of illness, we spent alot of money trying to find out what the problem was. She had a weekend stay at the emergency animal hospital and several more days at our vets kennel. Some of my kids felt we should do everything possible for the cat as long as there was a chance she could regain her health. Others felt the whole process was too expensive and after all Squeaky is only a cat. We've had this cat for 12 years. She's like part of the family to me. When we found her in the neighbors garage as a newborn kitten and we took her in and cared for her. Other than shots and licensing and food she's been very low maintenance. I couldn't just let her die without trying to make her well. This may sound crazy but it made me think "What will my kids do if I'm ill and can't make decisions for myself? After all I'm only an old person!" That is why it's important to have a living will. What do you think?
