Talked with P while she was having chemo. Her CAT scan had not changed from the last one a couple of months ago. Her blood test showed the marker down a few points so every thing is steady. That it is not progressing that it shows, nor is it recedeing. So they are going to continue with the same chemo she has been taking for the last several months.

Hubby has been sleeping for the last two days on and off. He didn't get up until noon today. But he was awake and reading most of the night. Do you suppose he has his days and nights mixed up.

I'm am very tired of staying home. TV is getting very old.

Talked to my realestate agent in Albuquerque today. She is a good friend too. She was looking for the cabinet shop that made the cabinet doors for my kitchen in Albuquerque. Being as how that crazy guy Scott made the arrangements. I remember going down and picking out the doors I wanted but I don't remember the name of the place. I even looked for the income tax info from that year but I can't find it. I found everyother year back to the 1980's but not that year. The cabinets did come out looking great.

Today is weight watchers, I haven't eaten all day just drinking. But I still don't think I will show a 10 pound loss. I am really getting discouraged.

Silly puppy is costing up a lot of money. She has chewed up the cords to the massage motors in the leather couch. Yesterday she took hubbys hearing aide off his night table and chomped it. Now that needs to be redone, the hearing aide came from the VA but I doubt if we can get them to replace it.

Strang Week

Weather has been crazy, it was 70 degrees one day and the rest of the week we are trying hard to get into the 50's. We have watched a lot of TV and embroided. I have spent some time sorting pictures. I finally found the one that I want to put on my blog. Now I just have to find someone to help me put it on.

D has been sick all week. P finally got him to the doctor today maybe the new medication will get him on his feet. P goes to the doctor Tuesday we are just waiting to find out the results of the CAT scan and blood test. D wants to go the Dallas with her Tuesday.

Michelle has been upset this week, having her other grandmother there and daddy sick has been hard on her. She made grandmother there call me so that I would come and get her. She felt more comfortable here and she has Sadie to play with.

Maybe this weekend I can get back to blogging about the houses.

Comments Fixed

I think I finally got my comments fixed. I couldn't figure out why no one was commenting and then I found out I had them turned off. So please people comment.

Hubby is at VFW meeting tonight he really likes that. We went to the educators retirees meeting this morning. I got the song and dance from the president that it was illegal for them to be political. That is the craziest thing I ever heard. NEA has a big political arm. No wonder the education system in Texas is so messed up. No one that knows anything about education is even interested in what legislation is pasting. I stuck my neck out and offered to help with membership recruitment they didn't have any idea what to do.

Time to go pick up hubby.

Rain Rain and more rain

It has been raining for two days with more to come. Our front yard is a lake, thank heavens we are on blocks and up 4 steps. Oh, for a little sunshine.

Nobody is talking to me on my blog, am I that boring? Or is there something wrong with my blog?

Trip to Dallas

We had a family outing to Dallas yesterday. Michelle is out on spring break she has a cold or allergys she wasn't feeling well. P drove, her mother in law, hubby and I. P had her CAT scan it took about two hours. We went to Saltgrass for lunch and on to Garden Ridge spent too much there as usual. We got home just in time to go to weight watchers. P made her first 10 pound lost. I'm about 2 ounces short of my 10 pounds. We just started our 10th week. I would have thought we had lost a lot more we both at the stomach flu this last week. Blogs sounds like everyone has had it too.

We have to wait until the end of the month to find out the results of P cat scan.

I'm going back to doc tomorrow my right side has been killing me up most of last night and couldn't do anything today for the pain.

Hubby goes back to nose doc friday he seems to be going fine.

They finally put a better dishwasher in the house. It's still used be it looks like it might work. The guy that put it in did a lot of damage and went though the house. They had a flood so he went through both bathrooms looking towels to soak up the water. When we were driving in all I could see were the towels hanging over the railing on the deck. I would never dream of spreading towels over the railings it looked terrible. He couldn't get the screen open that D put up on the inside of the back door so he tore it down. The rug in the kitchen was wet and they didn't turn the cold water back on under the sink. I had to crawl under there with my side hurt so back today to turn it on. John came up apologized today he will be here to fix the problems.

D finally got my wireless connection up and running. He was here Wednesday morning until he ran out of cable. He finished today it took him quiet awhile. Thank heavens it wasn't too hot. It has been overcast and the hummity was high. D said P has had tummy problems like I've had. I had some problems Thursday and thought I had gotten over it. I felt fine until about 7:00 PM last night then I couldn't leave the potty until about 2:30 this morning. I didn't sleep much last night. I was awfully weak this morning. D went after medication for me what I had was very old and I don't think it was working. I took lots of it last night and it didn't seem to work at all. I don't know how we both came down with it at the same time. I thought maybe we had ate something.

My new wireless connection is working great and is so fast it is unbelievable. The only problem is that when I get my computer back we will have to set up the wireless all over again.

Maybe I'll be stronger in the morning.

Princess Jeanne

Second house in Albuquerque still in Princess Jeanne. A sumprock house, it looks great on the outside but oh my G is it cold in the winter and hot in the summer. I'm not sure how many months we were in that house. I got PG for the last time there, we still had Hector. Hector was our first toy fox terrier, he would take on anything regardless of its size. I heard him barking outside one day and went to see what was going on. He had a big trashman caught between a small fence and the backyard fence and the back yard wall. He was jumping up and down barking like mad and the poor trash man was afraid to leave. He was small and fast and could have done some damage, I don't blame the guy for being scared. Hector was so small he could walk through the bars on the playpen that P was in and he spent a lot of time in there with her. They were best buds. P has never been afraid of animals maybe thats where she learned her love of animals. That house had a sunken living room I was glad that P didn't learn to walk there. The neighborhood had lots of kids so the boys were happy there. The school wasn't far away so I use to walk to school and take P in her stroller. I had hubby's boss to dinner there using the indian rugs on the parke living room floor. Funny I don't remember much about the house only things that happened while we lived there. Hector was quiet a stud I can still see him now climbing that six foot cinder block wall because there was a female in heat somewhere in the neighborhood. That house didn't have a personality that I recall.


Yesterday I picked Michelle up from school and she wanted her friend B to come home with us. So I brought them home and of course in the car all they did was giggle. I was immediately back in Albuquerque, driving P and her friend Dottie back and forth between the houses for them to play. I never knew two little girls could giggle as much and P and Dottie. That was a friendship that lasted a long time. I wonder alot about what happened to some of those little girls. Dottie lost her father at a early age and I'm not sure what happened after school. Her family was a large family and Dottie was the next to the last. P stayed before and after school with them when she was little. They said she fit into the family so well that they even took her fishing on Saturdays. P lived in a family that was a lot older than her so it was good for her to be with a big family her age. Michelle is a lot like that she needs kids her own age. Her cousins will be here next week end that will be good for her.

Computer problems

Once again my computer is back to Frys and I am using a loaner. I am so tired of putting programs and information on off of computers.

I am so ready to buy a new computer or else go get my old desktop and set it up again.

Hubby is much better, he has very little discharge today. Hubby got up at 3 am yesterday he wanted so much to go to Dallas. We took P to Dallas to get her chemo. The doctor didn't have very good news. The chemo she is taking now is not holding her cancer. Her blood work is up too high again. She will have another cat scan in a couple of weeks. They will decide what to do from there.

We have a new doctors appointment today to get a new primary care doctor. Keep your fingers crossed that this one will work out. This new doctor is with Presbyterian in Athens about 30 minutes away.

We are out of books to read so we need to go to the bookstore in Willis Point. P has started reading the cat series so I need to pick up some books for her. I need some black low heel shoes to wear with pants. I may look at Tangers when we are there. I hope it isn't too late to look for black anything.

Sadie is slowly learning to be house broke. She is a mess she wants to grabe everything and chew on it. Klenex, and anything hard. I have to put all my shoes up on the bookcase or she runs off with them. She stayed on the back deck all day yesterday and did fine. She does require a lot of affection, she gets so excited when we come home or anyone else comes. Her teeth are so sharp they are like needles. She is really filling out and growing. I hope she doesn't get much bigger. I have to pick her up alot to put her out and etc.

D is supose to come over tomorrow and install my wireless connection. I will have a new e-mail address then. I will post it when I get it. Maybe he will teach me how to post pictures. B showed me at Thanksgiving but I forgot. Today is Aunt Corkys 79 birthday. I made a small scrapebook of pictures an sent to her I hope she has it by now.
