    Thank you for the update on your mom. I hope your mom is now on the road to recovery.

    How is the family doing regarding this? Is your dad okay? I hope he doesn’t feel guilty because he suggested your mother take the baby aspirin. Do you know if what happened was something that would have happened, and it was just a matter of what triggered…[Read more]

  • G-J commented on the post, Aspirin, Baby 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    That really is the definition of a nightmare, Denise! I’m sorry to hear about all this. I had no idea baby aspirin could have that effect and in fact, thought the reason to take baby aspirin was so you wouldn’t have that problem!

    I’m glad you went ahead with the trip to D.C. I think that’s the advice you would have given any of us.

    I hope…[Read more]

  • From one runner to another, please convey R’s congratulations to Jack. He was very impressed with Jack’s times!

  • Well, @denise we’ve been laughing and making jokes about it all weekend. My cousin came up with the best line, “Gives new meaning to dump truck”!

    I’ve slowly been taking over more things, some more successfully than others. I ask him more questions like, “What would I do if I had to get the automatic garage door repaired?” As strange as this…[Read more]

    • Oh, my, gosh, that’s a good one–“dump truck.” Although it’s also still really gross.

      I think that’s brilliant to have Steve share details now. It’s just good practice for all of us. I need to start asking my dad questions like this.

  • @hussy you are so right! The policeman said it isn’t the weirdest thing he’s seen, either!

  • Thank you, Jan. That was very nice of you to say! :)

  • @lillie I’m quite glad I didn’t have to clean up the mess either! I hope this is the weirdest think I ever see!

  • ThumbnailIt’s been six months since I have blogged, a fact I have been reminded of by two friends. It’s not that things have or haven’t happened, I just sometimes feel like by the time I get around to writing about […]

    • Now that is a new one on me, I mean, I’m in California also and weird things happen here but that is really weird. I’m glad you were able to keep an eye on what was going on beings we sure cant be as trust worthy as we once were!

      Thank you for sharing! And I’m glad you didn’t have to clean up the mess!!!

      I’m thinking about your husband and his reaction to the whole incident. I’m glad you were there to do what you are doing so effortlessly, and gracefully.

    • You can’t make this stuff up!

    • I’m so glad you blogged about this. Oh, my heavens, though, what a scene outside the house.

      Inside the house, though, it must have felt like a shift–like you are now the one in charge, the head of the household. It’s a shift that must tug at your heart strings.

        I’ve slowly been taking over more things, some more successfully than others. I ask him more questions like, “What would I do if I had to get the automatic garage door repaired?” As strange as this will sound, things like this reassure me that there really is a problem and that it isn’t just me.

    • Good to hear from you again, even under such bizarre circumstances depicted in the blog! I love your husband’s calm response that you had it under control. You are such an inspiration with the grace and courage you have shared with us in your journey.

    • It is all a bit unsettling, isn’t it? So glad you blogged. I always have good I tent ions and then life interferes. I have been meaning to tell you that I am so glad to get the Orange County ALZ emails and newsletters. There isn’t anything like that here in Sacramento, so I especially appreciate all the information.

    • You handled that remarkably well. I probably would’ve blown a gasket and chased the guy down the street with his pants around his ankles…and gotten us both detained in the process.

      Level head you have.

    • “Dump Truck” that’s awful! It does sound like you handled everything very appropriately, I think many of us would have flipped or at least yelled a few choice words at the guy!

  • Well, good for you for taking your parents to see your nephew run his big race! Many people would not have done that.

    I laughed at the image of someone whispering to someone who might be hearing impaired! Sounds like they don’t get many requests for handicap accessible rooms there.

    I’m glad you made it out without getting wet, and it…[Read more]

    • Thanks so much @g-j! Jack ran 9:12.08, a personal best, finishing third in his division and fourth overall. His goal was 9:10 and All State, which means finishing in the top nine. He was over the moon at his time and his place. !!

      The handicapped accessible rooms are right down the hall from the check-in. And, they are obvious because they are…[Read more]

    Pegi, I sure understand this! I never quite know how my husband will be doing on any given day, so I try not to purchase tickets in advance to things. Like you, if he suggests we go out, I try to take the opportunity.

    Thanks, Denise! I definitely need to continue!

  • G-J replied to the topic Day 30: Car in the forum 30-Day Organization Challenge 3 months ago

    Skipped the car for one craft related area. I say craft related because it also has eight photo albums that I can safely ignore. Well, I discovered misplaced craft supplies. (No wonder I couldn’t find things!) I found a pattern that made me wonder why I purchased it so it went into the pile of donations. I also found desire to get back to sewing,…[Read more]

  • It’s still Wednesday in California! I didn’t even consider working in the garage today because it was 93 degrees. However, our garage, well, my side of it anyway, is in pretty good shape. It could still use some reviewing at a minimum.

    Today I worked on the filing cabinet. I can now say that the two drawers in the filing cabinet are in pretty…[Read more]

  • This is wonderful! We don’t have a basement or an attic! However, I do have a filing cabinet that I am convinced has a feature where more papers sneak in over night! I spent more time working on this today. On the positive side, this has been on my list for almost a year!!

  • Monday I continued on my late,at challenge – the filing cabinet!

  • Today I enlisted my son to help me look at and make decisions about his old school papers. Do you think we can extend this challenge another month?

  • On Saturday I continued to work on one drawer of the large filing cabinet. I try not to feel guilty when I remove paperwork that belonged to my parents. One smart thing I’ve been doing is after I put in my time on the files, I go right downstairs and shred those papers I don’t want.
