You can't win them all...

My last posting was awhile ago. Sorry about that. I've had multiple health problems, and still do but I think I'm on the far side of coming out of them, as much as I ever will. Holy Week may kill us. We are trying to be loyal to Stan who is trying to build a church, and we love being there, but it gets harder and harder to go so much. As in every night this week. We didn't make last night because we were so tired, and we may wimp out on some of the others, but we are scheduled to participate in some of them.

I finally see the GI specialist on Wednesday and find out what all those weird photos of my esophagus, etc. mean. Nothing to me at the present - just weird pictures.

On the Florida trip, I lost this one. I registered all your objections, but for a fairly mild man, he surely has a hard head. But in negotiations, we are taking three days to do the trip, spending the day closest to home with the Barnes in Houston. We'll take a longer day the second one and then to the beach. If things get bad I can either do some driving or call the highway patrol to get him. I have threatened to do this before, but never had to. I have a cell phone and am just survival conscious enough to use it. Next year, if it works out that I can go, I may leave him at home. George has had to promise to stay within the speed limit, to stop every two hours so we can walk around, and potty stops whenever necessary. Actually I stopped this potty stop thing years ago. Sorry I didn't do it sooner, girls.

I'm spreading out in my life just a bit. It has all been around church, but this afternoon I am going to try a hobby group at the RCW center. Most will be doing needlework but the announcement said that anybody could do anything to come - even cut out coupons or scrapbook. I am behind on this prayer shawl I am knitting and we are waiting for the blessing till I do. Haven't been in a knitting mood for awhile. I keep wanting to spin.

The management had to dig up my front flowerbed on Friday to find a horrendous leak which had the whole thing flooded for weeks. They found a broken pipe, repaired it and will be back today to fill it all back in. I hope my rosemary makes it through all this.

Blessings to you all....

Just because they open the church doors, you don't have to be there.

I did not learn that from you. Love you.

I am learning that. Skipping tomorrow night and maybe another. In fact, I am getting sort of tired of all this church. Time I met some other people and do some other things. mom

There are so many people who can be richer by spending time with you; so, spread yourself around. :)

Thank you, Barbara. What a nice thing to say. Love you, MJ
