rec 6.30.10

It was game night tonight not trivia night but,still a blast!Tonight was cmCrta's last night workin the rec :(.Thankfully she is still with the co. just changed office but,I wont get to see her very often but the good thing is she will still be arround just not as often.


Ive had a great day sortof.Hics was great,we continued our group on learning bout tbi.There are two parts to it.1 Learning different aspects of it and a support part.In the support part adA asked "what bothers you the most daily!I said idle time!I used to be on the go constantly,with a high pressure job,being a single parent to Kenny,getting my girls on Tuesday and Thursday nights and every other weekend!Im not used to idell time.
Lifeline(Ive fallen and I cant get up)called and said check your system at home cause it seems as if its not gettin any power!I get home and find the surge protector in the off position.I turned it on,tested it,worked.They have the sweetest young ladies that work there:)!Still have yet to locate my new digital camera from the move.CmD is gonna make a home visit tomorrow,maybe he can look through my stuff cause its said after a tbi yur scanning abilities are affected so maybe its there and Im just not seeing it,I hope so!


Ive been in contact with the halfway cafe,they have trivia night on Thursdays!I always do well with trivia,Im thinkin I should check it out! They even have prizes :)!

doing a load of laundry

Im in the process of doin a load of laundry!Its dryin now but,this takes so much out of me!I bring the laundry down with my scooter but,I put the cloths in the dryer and Im beat!The most challeging part is yet to come,folding and hangerizing!

main reason Im happy

I just figured out the main reason Im so happy!Its cause I have no fear of getting my intelligence insulted!In fairness to the people I used to live with,they may not have known they where doing it but,Kenny neva insulted it once but,I used to live in fear it could happen at any time, now no fear :)!


I took a successfull cruise to walgeens this am,no tips!I asked bout sun tan stuff,they recomended hawaiian tropic uvb/spf 4 but,I really know nada bout sun tan stuff!

gutta be busy

I didnt go to church so Ive gutta do something else.I think a cruise to walgreens is in order!Ive got to find sunscreen!I tried last time but,couldnt find it.Ill ask someone this time.

no sun

I went to the pool but,the sun was kinda in and out mostly in but,I put in an hour.I brought my cd player too.I listend to my 2nd favorite group,live!


Im thinking today I need to take a cruise to walgreens to pick up just a few things then continue workin on my tan at the pool,if I could find my camera,Id take some shots so everyone could see how nice it is,maybe Ill try with my phone.

6.25.10 pm

I spent a little time this am workin on my tan!I have to get my portable cd player out to take with me tomorow!Peapod came but,I forgot a couple things,Im going to stop and shop Monday so Ill pick em up then,if I remember!


Im getting really frustraited with my dauhter Bri!She told me not to call her but text her.Ive done that a few times but,no responce :(.I want to have her and Taylor ova for dinna this weekend!


I think Im gonna take the day off,just go to the pool lay down and work on my tan!
Pea pod is so cool!I forgot what time they are gonna deliver my food.All I had to do was login to peapod :)!


I had the meals on wheels dinna tonight!Sloppy joe with delmonico potatoe but,I left the vegetable medlay,didnt look good at all.


Hics was great last night and today!Bowling was fun,I didnt do too well but,I had a blast!Today we had groups,current issues,tbi group,team building.Ive got to tear this place apart looking for my camera this weekend!


Hics was great today!We started our new group,education about tramatic brain injury!Im already pretty knowlegable bout tbi but,Ive got to live this way the rest of my life so I feel you can neva know too much so Im gonna enjoy this lots!JR helped me get my verzone attachment working on my netbook now I must get it to work on my laptop/notebook:)!


Ive got hics today:)!Lets see if I can remember a few things.I got my usb attachment from verizone,seems I need a little help getting it working properly.Ive gutta remember to bring my netbook,attachment,instructions!Maybe cmD or JR can help!

great visit

I had a great visit with my oldest and youngest young adult:)!Bri,the middle one was working :( but,Im sure she will come ova soon.Lissy was able to trim my toenails for me cause its hard for me to do it,bendng ova and such it was safer to ask Lissy to try!She did well and Kenny well he is a great young adult!


I feel getting out of my chair at the pool!I didnt get hurt,except my pride but,I must examine how it happend,think of ways to correct it so it neva happens again!


Im thinkin another trip to the pool is in order for today!i THINK I remember how to get there.I go to the rotory Ill see the tennis court then look for the pool :).


I went to the pool,did my sun worshipping for today.Ive got to get my cd (portable)working cause then my brain will be stimulated but,the 20yr old lady accross the hall was thier and she had a friend with her!Two young ladies to stimulate my brain :)!


Hics was great today even though things didnt go as planned!We where gonna have a webinare,like a seminar,about voluntiering but,someone didnt realize it started at 11 am pdt not edt.The staff was gonna try and record it with all the technology we have!Fed x was here today to drop my stuff from verizone but,I was not here to sign for it!I did right where the driver left the slip so this time they cant say I didnt!

Ive had such a great day!JR had the pleasure of making a home visit this am then I went to rec and had my fried clam strips!JR also helped me get connected with verizon for my laptop and netbook so I can connect anywhere Thier is a verizone signal.That means at hics,docs appts,waiting for anything anywhere!;)


Im starting to get used to using this as my blog!Youve got to understand my blog is vital to me,it helps me remember the things I want/need to!Today,JR is making a home visit at 11am,at 12.30 Regina from meals on wheels is comin ova for an interview then I go to hics (rec) dinna at Tonys clam shop in Quincy,and a walk along wally beech,maybe see some bikers I used to hang with!

Ive just gutta dump the things that have been taking space up in my brain.Im so tired of everything being so hard!Opening things is a real struggle for me!I guess I should invite the struggle cause I keep thinking about an old friend,I went to shs with,I forget if he graduated or he had his motorcycle accidnt before graduation,Billy Leanord!Ive just gutta suck it up,cause Im the lucky one!

Wow its June already,since I moved time is passing by even faster.Im a little po ed at citizens bank,they charged me $5 to make an on-line transfer from my checking to savings!I dont agree with that after all I have green sence checking and savings.That dosnt make you want to conserve energy by making you have to go to a branch to make a simple transaction,gas,time,paper,jeesh!
