Well, it's been a long time since I've posted on here. I have been spending a lot of time on Facebook these days.

We've been so busy with Andy playing football, work and family stuff that I just haven't been posting as much as I used to. Now, the holidays are upon us and I'm busy making up crochet items for my stores.

I have been posting lots of pictures over at Facebook, so stop by there to see what's new.

August 10th

Well, it's been a long couple of weeks here.

The boat races one weekend, the reunion the next and Dad's passing in between and me getting sick too. I go back to work today and maybe I can get my system back on track.

Dad's Celebration of Life was on Friday. It was a very good service. It's amazing the amount of people that made it there. We had over 150 signer's in the guestbook. Lots of extended family and friends to help and support us. My niece did a slideshow of Dad's life. It was great! We laughed, we cried and we made comments remembering him. He touched many lives and the stories will go on for many more years to come.

It was fun to catch up with my cousins that were in town. I arrived at Mom's Friday evening after the family dinner at Mom and Dad's favorite restaurant and some of my cousin's were already there. One 11yo boy was crying and holding his arm. Well, Mom had a bird's nest in the tree that was not in use any longer by the birds. He was climbing in the tree to get it and fell out. My cousin spent several hours in the emergency room with him finding out that he had broken both bones in the arm! What a bummer for him! They left here Saturday morning for their vacation. I heard from them on Sunday and they were just getting into Silverwood Theme Park for the day. He wasn't going to let a broken arm slow him down much, apparently.

Well, I'll have pictures to post later. I feel like I've been gone from work for a month, so much has happened since I was there. I have to drive to Connell tonight to pick up a truck for Andy to drive when he gets his license. Mike gets to drive it until then. I'll let you all know how that goes tonight. : )

30 Year Reunion Weekend

I have had a wonderful weekend! The fun isn't over yet though. We have a picnic today and then I'll have time for resting tomorrow.

I'll write more later and post some pictures. What a week it's been. I'll update you all later when I can.

Thursday, July 30, 2009

It's been a hectic time for us this past month or so. We've been taking turns helping the take care of Dad and help Mom.

On Wednesday, July 29th, Dad passed away. We are very sad, but relieved that he is not suffering any longer. He fought it every step of the way. Mom, my sister in law and my son were all with him at the time.

The service is on August 7th so we can prepare everything.

We've been going through pictures for a slide show that my niece is going to put together. It's been quite interesting trying to figure out who some of those people are in them.

This weekend is my high school reunion and I've been busy helping with that also. It will be wonderful to see all my friends and then my family next week.

Dad's Been in the Hospital

Well, it's been a tough week for us here. Dad went into the hospital on a Thursday morning and was just released yesterday, 10 days later. He has terminal emphyzema. The doc's wanted to put him in a Skilled Nursing Facility. This would have been a special section of a nursing home. The day they were ready to move him, his stats all dropped and they couldn't take him. This was when we started talking about hospice help. On Friday we met with someone from there and by that afternoon, a bed and equipment were moved into Dad's family room and ready for him to come home. He stayed one more night at the hospital and his numbers were better and he was much more chatty with us and ready for home.

It's going to take some work and adjusting our schedules to be there to help Mom with moving him around, but we're determined to make him comfortable. He's not in any pain at all, which makes it easier for him right now.

My sister is leaving on Friday for Rio in Brazil on a business trip. She'll be gone 9 days.

Andy starts Football Camp on Monday. That means 2 practices a day all week. One at the stadium and the other in the evening several miles away at another school. Tyke will have to get him to the morning one and I plan to get him to the other.

That's where we're at for now.

Bikin' for Boobs Today at Jackson's

I've never been to this event before. A local bar/restaurant called Jackson's is have a poker run to earn money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation today. The poker run is this morning and then they have a BBQ, auction and a live band called Nasty Jack is playing. We're going for the BBQ, auction and band later today.

We went there the other night and I donated 2 of my crocheted boobie pillows for the auction and several of the beer cozies also with boobies on them for them to raffle off. I can't wait to see how well the pillows go over at this event. I've donated them to other auctions like our archery clubs and they've become an annual item. I did one with a pink back and border and the other is pink camouflage.

Soon to Come.....

More hot air balloon pictures! Andy, Nina and I are planning on going to Walla Walla's Balloon Stampede on Saturday. We have to get up about 4:00am to drive up there and be there by 6:00am. It's an hour's drive as the sun comes up. There's a large craft show and then at noon we get to watch our dear friend JoAnne singing in her band, Kool Katz on the stage.

I really look forward to this every year. It's so much fun for us.

Next weekend, we'll be camping at the Hermiston Traditional Shoot with some friends. Mike has to work on Saturday, but it's close enough for him to drive back and forth that day.

I can't wait for the fun to begin!

This was a nasty shot against the rock wall. There is a standing bear and a deer. If we missed, the arrows were broken for sure.

Andy looks like he's biting the polar bear.

Peek-a-boo Doug!

This is looking up at the cliff that we were shooting from.

Weekends, Reunions and Friends

Well, the weekend is almost here and we're planning a trip to the Tucannon for an archery shoot on Sunday. Mike works Saturday, so we'll be driving up for the day, not camping this year. I miss camping there and plan on doing some trips this year. The next weekend is our Colyak Traditional shoot and we will be camping for it. We have to get the trailer ready this week too.

I've been working on my 30 year high school reunion. We had a meeting last night and things are getting wrapped up for it. The date is July 31st-Aug. 2nd. I'm really looking forward to it. If you're a classmate and read my blog, please stay tuned. I'll be posting details in a day or two on all the sites.

I'm a member on Facebook and have hooked up with some old friends there that I may have never found if I hadn't signed up. I love chatting with everyone and catching up. Although, lately I've been a bit on the tired side with working more hours, so bear with me if I don't chat for long. As you know, I'm involved with several groups. I've also joined You earn points for and making friends. Then you turn in the points for giftcards or paypal money. How cool is that? I have a friend that has turned in several this past year and I'm just getting started. We can all use some easy money right? It is more time consuming though. I'm still trying to get a pattern going so I can earn my points and have some fun with it. I'm Jodi W. there if you sign in.

That's what I'm doing lately. So what are you doing? You can comment on here as anonymous too or send me an email. My email is posted on my profile. I love hearing from you, even if you think I won't remember you from school. I have my annuals and will look you up and get back to you. The reunion is all about getting to know everyone again and you can make it better by joining in.

Have a wonderful Thursday my Friends and Family!
