Sometimes Life is Crazy

By Herb Caen:

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.

It doesn't matter if you're a lion or a gazelle, when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.

I love your new page and background. I expect to see Julie Andrews, at any moment, coming over the Alps, singing .."the hills are alive....."

Hi Christi,
Thanks for the goodie and long note you sent me recently.
Sorry I did not catch up with you until now.
Seems like lots going on these days, doesn't it?

So glad to hear things are settling down a bit for you and your parents.
Things like these take so long sometimes. My brother finally got all the paperwork done for our mom to be on some government assistance so her home and health needs will be taken care of. So I can understand some of what you have been going through.
Now its back to gifts and visits for Mom.

I'm doing pretty good except for my knee...sprained it last week.
Going to celebrate my daughter's 18th birthday this weekend.
It will be a good break for her.. .a three day weekend and time in the corn maze with her youth group.

Having family over and everything on Sunday.

Hope you are taking care of yourself too...get that rest you need and have a great weekend!

Love you,
Sue emoticon emoticon

Hiya Christi,
Thanks for the note awhile back.
Sorry I haven't answered until now.
So how are you doing??? Looks like you have had your hands full
the past few months.
Hope you dad is settled in his new place, and you and your mom can rest a bit from all the activity.
Been working on my back walkway and hope to finish it this weekend.
Then I will have to look for some more projects to do LOL.

Things are a lot quieter around our house now that my daughter is attending classes at the local community college. I still help her with a couple classes at home in the evenings, but things are a lot different around here lately.
My older cat, Kitty has not been well the past week. He has an eye infection. so took him to the vet and got some meds for him. He is not as lively as he usually is these days. Sleeps alot. Hoping he gets better soon.

Oh and by the way, the concert we attended was great. Enjoyed being at the fair too, My only beef was that Amy Grant sangs some songs I didn't know and was singing more secular songs that I wasn't thrilled with.
I enjoyed Michael W. Smith alot though! His part was very worshipful.

Anyways, just checking in on you. Hope you have been able to keep up with your exercising and nutrition routine through all the activity you have been involved in. People keep reminding me that even 10 minutes of exercise at a time helps!

Take care my friend and have a great weekend!

Love,
Sue emoticon emoticon emoticon
