APRIL 28, 2014 - 10:11 PM

This has been a more than usual hard 28th day of the month for me since Mom passed away.  January  the first month was hard, but then it sort of passed each month with just passing thoughts of her.  Perhaps it was because I had my first birthday with her gone this month, or maybe this will just hit me harder some months.

R.I.P Mom and Dad.

Saturday was number 76.  Time marches on way to fast now.  But I had a great birthday. Marjie, Jackie, Robbin and Jessica took me out to eat at the new Mexican restaurant. Samantha, Jeremy and Kati stopped by during dinner.  My meal was great, hope I can remember what I got for another time.  The waiters surprised me with singing Happy Birthday, bringing me a shot of tequila, and smearing whipped topping on my face. 

Marjie brought a big box of delicious cupcakes, and brought me a bottle of wine, Jackie bought my dinner, and Robbin brought me a calla lily plant.

I would say it was a very nice birthday.

April is into its second week now, and forecast says by Wednesday we will be having some 70's weather.  Hope before too long, the chilly days are gone.

March 25, we started taking the free bus to the Downsteam Casino in Oklahoma. Went 2 weeks now, and plan to go this week. It is a nice weekly outing to look forward to as long as we do not lose too much money. Time will tell

April 14th, I am beginning a walking program through the Health Center. We are walking at 9:30 at the new High School track for 30 minutes. (Will miss "casino day" and days we have dr. apts), but will just need to walk on the weekend to make it 5 days. I want to walk 5 days a week. I began Sat walking outside to get used to it. I am bad about jumping on and off the treadmill, and not walking a whole 30 minutes at a time.  They are going to have it even when swimming begins in June. I will probably just swim for an hour during the swim season and not go walk of a morning too.

I have stuff to pot some plants and am getting anxious, but weather has still been cold so have held off.

We got the guttering on the garage, are still waiting on the concrete guy to come and see about patio repairs. Have a pretty good to do list on things go do on the house for the summer.

Spring brings hope, and I am very hopeful that we will have a very good summer.
