September 21, 2016

Guess it's been a while since I posted on here.  I have done lots since the last post.  I got my disability, was still working, but in Oct. 2015 I quit because I wasn't being treated right.

My father passed away and I have been heartbroken since Feb. 2015.  Went to Arizona to see my father in hospice, all the kids were there, so I saw my sisters and brothers.  Even got to see an old friend John John.  He passed this January.  That sucked too.

Don, Travis and I went to California for my dad's memorial around my birthday, Don and Travis got to put their feet in the Pacific Ocean in Balboa.  We also spent a day in Hollywood with my niece Katrina.  On our way home we had a good dinner with Karla, Carlos, Katrina and Guero.  That was the first time I met him.  On our way to Cali we had dinner at In & Out with Dave Bolen and Joe who were there in Vegas to go to the Nascar Cup races that were that weekend.

I ate In & Out several times while there. Yum.  Then in October we went to Palm Springs for my 30th class reunion.  It was fun to see my old friends, and I wish we had more time.  There were some that I didn't see, which bummed me out too.  Ellen and Karla and Katrina met us there, we had some good food and then drove up to Jan's to go to Alcatraz.  Boy was I upset, we didn't get to go out there, ended up shopping on the pier, so Don was kinda upset too.

Went by Karla and Katrina's new houses in Hesperia.  They are next to each other and very pretty.

Travis is still working and I am trying to see if I can find another part time job to do.  Our rent is high and they keep raising it, no where else to move, so we are stuck here.  This February Lotus had to be put down.  One of the hardest things to do, but we have a new little guy.  A 9 year old Chihuahua that has been friends with Trixie for a while.  His name is Tiger.

will have to add pics later, I have a new laptop and they aren't on here yet.

August 1, 2014.  

Wow, it's been forever since I was updating my blog.  Been putting most my things I make on Ravelry.  I have lots of pics to share.  But I am not sure they are all on here.  I have a new grand daughter that is a year and a half, and all Don's boy's got married last year.  So we have Riki, Rylee, Austin and Donnie.  Cassie, William and Danny.  Michelle, Shayla, and Mikey.  And in heaven we have our precious Aeliyah.  

Travis graduated last year, and he is almost 6 foot tall, Still has the adorable smile.  Trixie and Lotus are still in the family.  And spoiled rotten. 

After fighting for so long, I am finally getting approved for my disability and hope that it helps.  Still going to the races and we just went to Arizona to see my dad, Ellen and Karla.  It had been 14 years since I have seen Karla.  I hope that we are able to go to Cali soon so I can see Jan and the girls. 

Travis has his own car and we have the Neon still.  Looking at getting another car soon I hope.
