Archives for: June 2006
I realized in the last few days that I haven't posted on here in a while. I hadn't realized it had been a month, though! My apologies. Things have been crazy.....
I had my June weekend at school, and it was a really good weekend, as they all are.... Then on June 5th I flew to Texas to spend some time with my family. Spent a few days at my dad's, and then went to my mom's for 10 days. The reason behind the trip was not a fun one - my grandfather has been declining rapidly the last couple of months. He has Alzheimer's and went from living alone and driving one week, to not recognizing his apartment building the next. He then had a pacemaker put in and has been in and out of the hospital since then. I saw him daily while I was there, and I felt that he declined even while I was there. He doesn't know who anyone is, and doesn't know WHEN he is.
I did get to spend time with my mom and her cats and dogs, which was fun. She had two 9 week old kittens that I got to play with - THAT was fun.
I got back just over a week ago, and have been getting back to my usual routine. I did pretty well with the BTD during my trip, but I'm tightening up on things now to lose some of what I've gained since we got married! I'm enjoying eating a lot of fruit right now - mangos, cherries, blueberries, pears, etc. YUM!
