Hello Journal friends! I haven't been around in awhile. I have lots to share today. I guess I have been storing it up. First I want to wish a very, very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the Ramblin' Man Rich!! He is celebrating a special birthday today, so if you can, go over and pay him a visit! Oh, he is a great read as well!! Happy Birthday, Rich!!
I have spent less time reading journals and posting entries over the past few weeks. I have had time and health issues and it has been hard for me. I foresee some time issues coming up as well. This puts me in a dilemma. I was wondering what you guys thought. Chelsea decided that she wants to move back to Florida. She is going back in June sometime. I want to spend as much time as I can with her. I also want to enjoy the Spring weather. Krissy's wedding is coming up...well the list goes on...my health has not been the best either. What is my dilemma? I was wondering if I should have the privilege to post whenever I want if I am not reading other's journals faithfully. I know that your response will probably be, "Post whenever you want. It is your journal.", but it is hard for me to journal for myself and not stay in contact with everyone that I have been in contact with over the past few months. Everyone has given me such great support and friendship. Not that that will stop. It is I who has been lacking in some contact. I have thought about abandoning journalling altogether for awhile, but I do not want to do this. I guess I will continue to give this all some thought.
Yes, Chelsea is going back to Florida it seems. I am not all too surprised as it has not been too easy up here for her. She left a family and friends and a home down there and came up to a cold climate and no friends. School will be cheaper and she will go back to a place she knows as "home". I will miss her greatly, but will always appreciate the ten months that we had being roommates!! It has been so very special!!
Our local lead district attorney, Ray Gricar, has been missing for eight days. Yes, I am jumping around topic. This is a strange story. He vanished. Poof. He was due to retire at the end of this year and was not seeking re-election. He was looking forward to retirement. He is well-liked and well-respected in the area. He lives in my little town. He is a very hard worker. They found his car, but they have not found him. They have combed rivers and dogs have been used. You may have seen it in the national news. It is a real mystery. Theories abound..suicide? foul play? a new life?...amnesia? Please pray for this situation as his family really misses him.
I have a neat little brain exercise for you. Follow the instructions. See if this is very hard for you...
I find the brain extremely fascinating!! Was this very hard for you? I tried it a few times. It got easier the more I tried it. Interesting, huh?! I like brain teasers and optical illusions.
I called my neuro-surgeon's office yesterday. They still don't know if they are going to convert my shunt over to a programmable one. I am thinking of looking into other hospitals in my state. I am beginning to get pretty upset with them. I have to do alot of research as I have several conditions that need taken care of. Can I find one place to get it all taken care of? Probably not. Two would work. Even three if they are not too very far away. I travel out-of-state because I could not find anyone in my state that specialized in my conditions. Hmmm....wish me luck in my search!
Well, I was just offered a ride in the country! Doesn't that sound nice! I think I will take my friend up on his offer and sign off! Have a good rest of the weekend everyone, and take care of one another!! xox
