08:32 pm: Not feeling good today.
Another day with diabetes. I am not feeling good today. I want to sleep alot. I guess I am going to have to get help from a dietitian. I need to pay closer attention to what I eat. I have a doctor's appointment in June.

12:10 am: ADDENDUM TO MOTHER'S DAY
On Wednesday after Mother's Day, I plugged my phone in to charge and it dinged with 7 messages. Unbeknownst to me the phone wasn't working for a few days, (I guess it was tired and needed a rest.) Among other calls was one from my photographer son. He called on Mother's Day and was disappointed that he couldn't connect to me. I called him back and he said he is working on a layout for National Geographic. We don't know yet when it will be in print.
Hugs to all who read this. Thanks for your time.

09:03 pm: Thoughts on Mother's Day
I have in the past been an upset Mother on this day when my children didn't call me. Today I decided to think of what they mean to me and the accomplishments each had made in their lives. My daughter is the oldest. She put herself though college almost single handed. She got her Masters Degree online while teaching Kindergarten and keeping a home running. I am very proud of her. She is the only one that is married. My oldest son graduated from high school and left for San Francisco the next day. He had a job there as a photogher's assistance. He has published a number of books of pictures of Endangered Species. The most recent book was photos for Alice Waters book Urban Gardens. Needless to say I am very proud of him too. My youngest son graduated high school and went to New York to live. He with the help of his dad, got his BS and went to Pre-Med. He went to Medical School for a few years, and was forced to quit for a while. I am also, very proud of him. I am very proud of all my children, I love them all very much. If I were never to hear from again, I would keep these memories of them forever.

07:30 pm: What is happening.
(We are back in the BLM campground as Coordinators again for the winter.
DH is doing better and is breathing better and can talk pretty well again.
We still don't know what caused his problems. The Drs say he didn't have a stroke. So who knows?)

As you can see the above did not post in September. We have had a easy winter so far as the office has been. Fran was sick again for about 6 weeks and Jack for about 2 weeks. We call it the Quartzsite Crud and the doctors call it a virus.

We will move around the 1st of May and be back to the BLM campground again in September 1,2009. We are staying in an RV outside of Quartzsite for the months May through August, watering and security for the own when she is gone from her home. It is a very laid back type job.

07:11 pm: For some reason, we couldn't link up to the tower for Internet. Then one evening this week everything started working better than it had when we had lived 2 miles closer. I don't know if they increased their signal, but it works. That is all I care about.

The campground opened on Sept 15. Almost all of our staff is here and are working.

We spent Wednesday night through Friday night last week in Palm Springs, CA. with my sister and her husband at their time share. We had a good visit. The drive over and back seems like a long way. It took about 2.5 hours each way. I guess we are just getting old.

I have done so little crafting in recent months that I am really needing to get back to something. I think I'll try to finish the picture frame that I started for my nephew and his wife, as a wedding gift in August of last year (2006). They are expecting their first baby in January. So, I need to come up with something for the baby, and then there are Christmas presents for those under 16 who will be attending the family Christmas Dinner at one of my family members home. So, I guess I better get to work.

04:12 pm: Moving in two weeks!
In the next two weeks we move back to the BLM campground to host for another winter season. This will be our 4th season as hosts in this particular campground. We will be working with most of the crew from last year, that makes for less work training new recruits.

We got good news that the hosts nearest to us will be back for another season. We are so glad that they are coming back. They are such great friends.

We will be celebrating our wedding anniversaries, theirs will be 51 years, ours 32 years on September 12. It will the be third year we celebrate together.

02:33 pm: Good news.
My sister had a lumpectomy and will probably have radiation. The cancer had not spread to the lymph glands. She was home and resting yesterday afternoon when I talked to her daughter.

08:57 pm: Summer 2007
I'm wondering when the other shoe will drop! In early April one of our daughters was in an auto accident. She is now in a nursing home and has not regained consciousness to this point. Then yesterday I got an email from my baby sister saying she is having breast cancer surgery on Monday, August 20.
Jack is still huffing and puffing, trying to breathe out. Drs don't know or don't care what is causing this. I had an emergency room visit on Wednesday evening for a kidney infection and possible pancreatitis. WHAT IS WITH ALL OF THIS...................??????? Please keep us in your prayers. Thanks, Fran

Well, here I am again. I am using the Safe Mode to get to the Internet. The tech is supposed to be here sometime this next week. So, until then I guess I will use Safe Mode. Does anyone know if this will hurt my computer????

11:02 am: Summer 2007
Well, it looks like we will be staying in the desert for the summer. DH has been ill, so we don't want to get too far away from his doctors. I think we found the least expensive place in town to stay. (Hope so anyway.) I hope to get some sewing and beading done while we don't have to get up and run over to the office or sit in the office, as we do in the winter, while we are working. This winter we have spent a lot of time at the hospitals and doctors offices. We will be going to Phoenix to the Mayo Clinic in the near future, don't have a date yet.
