    10/23/2016 11:44:45 PM, by BMCC488

    Wednesday morning was interesting to say the least. My nephews called me from my brother's phone three times in a row. I answered the second one and talked to them a little, then they said bye and hung up. Before I could even put my phone down, it started ringing again. So we talked some more. They ... Read more

    Questions I've asked and now I'm answering them. 17th-chocolate covered strawberries. Nah! Don't mess with perfection by putting mud on them. Just kidding. It's just that I don't like chocolate put on strawberries and then it makes the strawberries funky. 18th-healthier eating. I definite... Read more

    Well, I started with a different supervisor and I got to provide assistance for training peers. I'm not a chair exercise fan but my peers have less mobilities than me, but I love Tai chi, so a chair Tai chi workout is better than none I figure!

    10/12/2016 7:39:10 PM, by PEZCATHY

    Heard from my daughter today that her live-in boyfriend asked her to get married. I can't decide whether or not I am happy about this. On one hand, I am happy because she is the daughter with three kids and it creates a more stable environment for them. On the other hand, she will be 33 years old... Read more

    Yesterday we went to a local church for the first time. I thought it was okay and felt at least as comfortable as I'm liable to feel in a new environment. All churches, even all "Churches of Christ" do things slightly different so sometimes that throws me off a bit. It was nice and the preacher move... Read more
