    Happy New Year 2016

    Our awesome grandchildren ~ Justin, Sarah, Jacob, Emily and Kai.  They fill our hearts. WOW, I can’t believe how fast 2015 went by.  2016 has got to be a better year than 2015. We were welcomed with a new grandson, Jacob Matthew Coon, on October 2, 2015.  He is just gorgeous and reminds me so much of LeRoy when he was a baby.  We have not been able to meet him yet but have done some Skypes.  Emily just loves her little brother. 2015 was a year of work injuries for me. Early in the year, in the Deli Dept, I hurt my back, which gave me discomfort for a month.  I showed up at work everyday and worked through it.  Next, on May 26th, I sliced the side tip of my right thumb on the slicer.  I couldn’t get it to stop bleeding so had to go into Urgent Care.  Luckily they did not have to cauterize it but it was close.   I stayed injury-free until August 22nd when my feet came out from under me and dropped me to the floor, pushing my left foot under a flatbed cart, twisting my calf.  I broke my left fibula just…

    Happy New Year 2015

    Happy New Year everyone!  2015 is going to be a good year.   On January 14th I will have worked in the Deli for 3 months.  It’s hard to believe that much time has gone by already.  I’m about 3-4 weeks away from my first raise, which I’m excited for.  Work has been keeping me pretty busy these days.  I love working in the deli because you are always moving, either cooking, waiting on customers, and many other chores.  I love the customers.  They are the best. I would like to get more regular about posting here in this new year.  I am also trying to get back on my path back to goal.  I’m golden in the exercise department; work takes care of that.  My eating needs to be reined in and I need to take my lunch to work where I HAVE CONTROL of what I eat instead of grabbing stuff when I’m starving and tired.  I also need to drink more water and cut back on my Diet Dr. Pepper.  Tracking is so important when I’m on track and in control; need to get back to that too.  So, it’s back on the right path towards my goal.…

    Merry Christmas 2014

    Hi everyone!  It’s been awhile since I posted.  I’ve had a busy couple of months with some changes in my life. In October,  Al and I headed up to Spokane to help our granddaughter, Emily, celebrate her 3rd birthday.  She loved her Minnie Mouse party at a Jumping/Sliding place, with all the trimmings and we loved celebrating with her.  We stayed with LeRoy, Rachel, and the kids for a week and had a blast.  Miss Emily is such a sweetheart and really loved having Grammy and Grandpa to spoil.  Al & I and LeRoy & Rachel all had a double-date to Silverwood Theme Park for Scarywood.  We all had such a good time and great memories were made.  Emily’s birthday is October 7th and mine is October 5th, so we both had a great week.  LeRoy took me out for the day on my birthday and spoiled me rotten.  First, a trip to our favorite restaurant, Red Lobster (we are the only two who like it).  After that, he took me to Kay’s and had me pick out something just for me.  I got a beautiful heart necklace.  We finished the day with a visit to our favorite collectible store…
