1. Learning to make tres leche cake from scratch for Mothers Day.
2. Experimenting on the family. Tried a new recipe last night. Was good but need a few modifications. I didn’t like the apple cider vinegar in the dish.
3. Staying busy sort of. I need a breather. The father-in-law Alzheimers man no longer has a turn off switch. We are having to child proof our home. It is worse then a child. I am grateful he has not hurt himself.
4. Hubby is going to work a week for a local company. Aviation is scarce in the area. Good pay good folks and they may be getting another plane soon and they at that point would probably hire him full time. It would be nice to have insurance again.
5. Quiet time in the mornings.
6. Uverse app on ipad. I can watch the occasional movie while still keeping an eye on my in-laws.

That my friends whom had the motorcycle accident are getting better. The wife and daughter hit a deer on the way home last night. They are ok. The wife woke up in severe pain with a broken tail bone. Thankfully she is ok with some pain meds. Enough already! Every is telling her no motorized vehicles for a while!
For all the awsome birthday wishes!

I have a few gratitudes
I am grateful
That my dear friends of 28 years are Okay after a very bad motorcycle accident. The wife just sprained her ankle. But he was in surgery for around 12 hours today. His prognosis is good but a long road ahead. I wish we lived closer.
I am grateful
That my aunt whom passed away today did so with grace and was happy with a life well lived. She will be missed.
I am grateful
That my friend M is okay. She fell off the deck of her Dads house and broke her ankle. It could have been worse. Today is her birthday but the ankle is giving her and her father some time together. Which is an awsome thing.

I wrote three down. One was actually my old high school.
I worked on the first one. My Dad’s Mom. My grandma. I was always told how she had her favorites. I was told how when I was around eight years old I asked her why she didn’t love me. I do not remember doing this. But I still hear my Mom saying negative things about her. Over and over. Well as I was writing about this I realized Grandma was probably a big introvert like me and only let in those that were around a lot. We were not as my Dad was in the Air Force. So I wrote that I forgave her no matter if it was imagined or real and I prayed she would forgive me.
Then I went off to clean my kitchen and turned some music on. Willie Nelson filled my ears with Always on my mind. It was like she was saying I thought of you often. I Love you. It was overwhelming to the point I balled my eyes out.
I feel a connection with her that I have never felt and am thinking to myself ” I have been dragging this crap around all these years.”.
I honestly did not expect this drastic of a reaction on my part. I feel like for the first time it is OK to love my Grandmother.
Hubby brought me a black angry bird stuffed animal with sound!
Chico was a happy dog today.
Cool rainy day.
Lost two pounds this week!
I got up around seven worked on my morning pages project and then decided to sneak back to bed for just a bit. It is Saturday and everybody deserves to sleep in once in a while. In my case everyone got to sleep in because I am usually getting everyone up!
It was what I wanted to do.
