Getting back in it somewhat

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything on the regular.  I am very slowly getting myself back.  I know it will take a while.  Always a work -in-progress.  So this morning, the bus did not come, there I and another woman staning there.  She calls cap metro customer service, they say it is a mechanical issue, but do not offer when ir if they will send a back-up bus.  See this lousy route as it may be only has one bus making the rounds wvery our on the weekends, and two busses back and forth on the weekdays.  And it goes in a short loop, not like it was goong all the way to China and back, but just to one park and ride, then to the Howard Station. Anyhoo, this lady calls a ride share and tells me I can ride with her to the park and ride.  Now that is mighty generous.  That is my shining star of the morning.  

So getting back to myself;I’ve been cleaning my apartment, and making some changes.  So that it will accommodate my new kiddo.  Princess.

Who is now my responsibility since my mom passed away.  I am getting her a new cat tree, and hopes she takes the move and new accommodations well.  To be continued on that!

I also acquired new artwork 

This painting comes from a co-worker who is very artistic.  I hope she sells more of her work.  It will hang over my fireplace once I get thing situated.  

Winter is subsiding, soon Spring will be upon us.  Today is turing out like a spring day, so lovely in the sun.  I am enjoying it while it is here.  

Here’s to getting back…  All aboard!

Update…

My mom has mylodysplastic Syndrome, (MDS)  The myelodysplastic syndromes are hematological medical conditions that cause ineffective production of all blood cells. Patients with MDS can develop severe anemia and require blood transfusions. In some cases, the disease worsens and the patient develops cytopenias caused by progressive bone marrow failure. The outlook in MDS depends on the type and severity. Many people live normal lifespans with MDS.

Which means her bone marrow is pretty Jacked up.  She will see doctor after doctor for this, in fact she has to go to a doctor who will see if she qualifies for a Trial research for some medication.  Instead of having to see about experimental medical treatments in Houston.  Will keep all updated and posted.  For today, it looks like she will be doing treatments here in Austin.

I have decided that I am going to stay home with her while this is going on, and find a job closer to home, instead of being all the way out south, and taking forever to get back north and with her.  Thank God that my dad is working, as well, but for now, I am going to be there while he works to keep bills paid.  I will look for something closer.  Because I still need to get my bills paid as well.  But It will be alright, God has his hands on our family.  All the prayers of family and friends. Thanks for all those who prayed and are still praying.

Today has been a wild day, but I know my mom is so very strong, and she is going to beat this thing.

52 Weeks ( Picture This )

Week 52: ( picture this )

So  the 52 week project has come to an end.  This being the last photo.  What do you think, have these photos made you think or feel anything?  For me, well at the ending months, it became harder to find things I wanted to photograph or put in.  I made it through none -the-less.  This is something I am glad I did. What is next you may or may not ask, that I do not know, but whatever it may be…  stay tuned.

As for this photo, took it at the local wally world.  I have never had snails before, and they looked interesting.  For a photo, not to eat.  Ick! Would you ?

Day 330:

Today I am…  Listing it off!  Yes, I have been thinking about the Thanks Giving holiday.  Now last year,I spent it with Riki and her family,but this year I am well ready to do this on my own.  Mom may not make it down, and it is a blackout day on the work schedule meaning, that we an not schedule to have that day off.  I am aware some will get it off and some will not, so If I do have to work that day…  it is what it is.  So I am going to prepare my first little Thanks Giving meal.  Not a whole lot,I do not want yo overwhelm myself.  Just a chicken maybe cornbread dressing, ham, with cranberry sauce.  Of course Pecan Pie, I think I might just have to pick one up from Royer’ pie haven.  Anyway. I am feeling tings of excitement here.  Oh! This is a season of many Thanks.

Today I am…  Listing it off!

Day 317:

Today I am…  Looking through new eyes.  Yes!, today I am seeing things I want, things I have longed to do, and to see, and to achieve.  Yes!  My eyes have opened to the new.  Where they have seen what can be.  It is not impossible, not if you want it enough.  Finally, I am seeing that this life is truly what you make it.  So stay tuned my loyal readers and friends. 

Today I am…  Looking through new eyes.

Day 198:

Today I am…  Wowed!  I have been on this journey for 198 days, diligently tapping out something or not a lot at all, but still sticking to my guns.  persistence pays off, I see this, and strive to keep on keeping on, keep on moving forward, even in the face of days that just make me want to quit, lay down, give up, and so forth, no.  I will not give up, I will march forward and I will keep on keeping on.

Wow, this month is almost at an end, with 4 days left, time…  It keeps moving forward, there is no stopping it.

Today I am…  Wowed!

Day 1:

Today I am…  Determined.  To write something everyday, for 365 days.  To write without missing a day will be a challenge.  One that I feel I am ready to take on.  I have tried before, either with photos or just plain writing in my blogs, always seemed to skip when I felt there was nothing to write, or nothing I considered was interesting content.  Today I embark on the new.  Today I push myself to a new challenge, one that will stretch me.  Today I am… Determined.
