rec 2.16.11

Bowling was so much fun!JR and I were tied after nine frames so we start talking shxt to each other!He says "if you win Ill buy your dinna for everytime bowling for a year,if I win you clean my office for a year" but,what he didnt know is when the pressures on jamies at his best!Knowing that myself I said no I dont want to take your money!The 10th frame I got a spare and I have no clue what he got but,I won that little battle!

updating

Ive updated my online calendar,so I can remember wtf Im supposed to do!I added the snowball dance that crc is having!This is at least the 2nd year Ive gone to this!Everyone can view my calendar at www.calendar.yahoo.com/jamie4536

role model

I just saw something on tv bout bullieing.Made me think back to a time when I was dropping my girls off at moms house and mom started throwing punches at me,in my face!I didnt get hurt by any of her blows,I just grabbed her arms and twisted untill she calmed down.Then after I got back in my car,called Quincy police and said "Ive just been assalted"!The police came,arrested her,so she had to spend a few hours in the blue light motel!I had to go down to the station to fill out some info but,she tore my shirt so I had to go home and change it!Kenny said "what happend"I told him his mother assaulted me so he wanted to go to the station with me.I told them what had happend and said she has just got to know she cant do this anymore!So why am I sharring this?I just was showing my kids the right way to handle a difficult situation!Thats part of being a good role model!That show made me remember that incident!I think I did the right thing and hopefully my kids learned from it!

2.16.11

My weekly routine keeps changing ever so slightly,cmD is not making a home visit today but,I do have rec!We are going bowling tonight at Boston bowl!That means the bestest steak and cheese calzone for dinna :)!

2.15.11 afternoon

Hics was great today!Im tring to remember what went on,OH yes,we had groups,current issues and brain injury education!Im bi edu I remember JR talking bout venting,different ways of venting as he called a friend and left him a venting voice mail :)!I tend to do all my or most of my venting through my blog but,since Ive got my own place now,I havnt had too much of a need to vent!Sure there are some things Id like to have,do but,Im just so happy living in MY own place,everything else seems minor!Im really happy being the king of my castle :)!

2.15.11

Ive got hics today :)!Ive been thinking about writing another piece for my home page but,I think Ill just post a note in fb,Im thinking of calling it,choices!I choose to be happy,why cant we all choose to be happy!I can explain all that Ive lost and all my issues living with tbi but,still I choose to be happy!If I can do it Im sure we all can!

Things Ive got to get done,1,rewrite my card with all up to date info,try to get in touch with Cara.She had said when I get my own place she would help me organize things!I really dont need any help,cmD has givin me lots of help and its a very functoinal,safe place but,she has been a great support since early in my progression,I guess I just want to show off how far Ive come!Im not being or showing conciete,Im just proud of what Ive been able to accomplish :)!Im thinking too its time I should write another chapter in my home page.I like what my fb friend Arnie has but,I dont need another page to maintain so when I get around to it Ill just add to www.jamieyoung.biz !

2.11.11

Today Im kinda busy!I see a doctor (oncologist) but,Im not really sure why dr. Star wanted me to see him.My psa count he said was a little high but,he didnt want to take a look at my prostrait.Im certain my cancer is gone for good :)!Then I go from there to the "y".
