Another accident & Updates

Sorry it has been so long. A lot has been happening. I'll make this as short as possible.
My oldest daughter, along with 4 grand kids, moved. They had been living next door. Now they moved to a little town. It's not real far, but it's kind of out of the way. I miss having 4 of my 5 grandchildren next door. They are a handful, but still. I just hope everything works out with their move.

Since my daughter moved, I don't watch the 4 grandchildren when she works. I'm still watching my 2 great-nephews. They are very good. I also started watching my great-niece. She is almost 2 months old. But, I will only be babysitting her for about 2 more weeks.

Still working away on my job as Coordinator with the demo company. Also, still looking for more work, due to financial needs. Tim still has not found a job. He's tired of hearing that he's over qualified. The unemployment should be running out in a few weeks.

Sassy is doing well. I think her hind legs are as good as they will get. But, that's okay.

Caitlyn's Youth Group had a car wash yesterday. It was a fundraiser for Summer Camp. Poor girl, she ended up so sunburned! I feel bad for her. At least she had fun.

Wednesday night, our two youngest & I went camping. The other kids didn't want to go, so Tim didn't go. My dad is spending May at the campground. He has circulation problems with his legs; so he has problems walking very far. He uses a motor scooter to get around the campground. He wanted us to spend the night. So we did. We left early Thursday morning, so I could get home for work. My dad stayed at the campgrounds.

About midday Thursday, I received a call that my Dad had been in an accident on his motor scooter. He is on blood thinners, so the he had a terrible time with bleeding. There was a lot of concern about internal injuries. He took a blow to his side. The scans didn't show anything broken or damaged. They almost sent him home that night from the ER. But, he blacked out when he stood up. He ended up spending the night in the hospital.

He's home now. He's still in extreme pain. The pain medicine is helping some. It's going to take him some time to heal. He mows lawns for some income. Obviously, he can't handle being on a riding mower right now. Tim mowed one of the yards for him yesterday. I'm trying to convince him that he should accept Tim's help a little longer.

I have a lot to get done today. So, until next time.....
