Coming Home…

Tonight, my mom has been released from the hospital.  Yay!  She has to do some follow ups, and they are somewhere down town, but we will take a taxi to get her to them. I am glad she is coming home, I have missed her so much, you know…  You don’t know what you got until something happens, I know I need to be a bit more patient with her, I am working on that.  I love my mom very much.  I want to have more good times than the not so good times with her, as much as I can.

she is pretty much medicated to the hilt, so hopefully she sleeps well tonight, without much pain.  Got all her meds filled, and believe me there are a lot of them.  My oh my!  Anyway, that is the latest on my mom.

So today I stayed home and cleaned her apartment, so that it will be much easier for her to maneuver around her apartment, being there were lots of things that I had to put away.  I am tired now.  I did happen to get in the rest of The Get Down on netflix.  It is a awesome show, season 1.  I do hope there will be a season two, just have to wait and see.  Well that is about it for tonight, so until the next time.  Keep it nice and easy.

Being an adult…

Means doing what you have to do, what you need to do.  I know I want to run from this job, because I have not grasped ut all; but I know I need to stay on it, to work through this frear and forge ahead in victory, and victory it shall be when I master it.  It is only day two,I still feel shaky,but I know I will eventually will get it.  Plus all that is going on with mom and ger health, I definitely need to keep this employment, so in tough time like this, I can help out more.  Today I got off a bit earlier so that I could get over to their apt and check on cat,while dad is with mom.  Then cook a pot of goulash with some cornbread.   That should last a few days.  Yes, there are times in your life where you have to suck it up and do what needs to be done.  This is another time for me in my life.  God knows I want my mom around for a long time, so I am going to help take care of her the best I can.

Worth it.

So I got a new phone about a week ago.  Seeing as my phone was about to bite the big one, it has been in a death spiral for a couple of years now.  So it was finally time to do it.  I got the same kind of phone my mom has, and she loves hers; and as I have observed as well as shot photos from her phone, I knew I wanted one as well.  What phone you say waiting patiently to hear.  I got the Note 5.  I do say it is incredible.  I love being able to share my photos and videos between the phones just by touching the phones together, super cool.  The photos come out super clean, and clear.  Front facing camera is so amazing as well.  Totally loving this phone.  No more headaches from fighting with lag and freeze time.  Definitely one less thing to think about.

So went down to marble falls today, nice ride, fed the geese and ducks; very relaxing.  My mom and I were heading over to see if we could see if the dams were still letting water out, as they were yesterday.  Only got a photo with regular camera, and it was not that great quality.   But there was none today, so went to feed ducks and geese at the falls.  Here are a couple of photos I got.   Today has been an awesome day.

Awesome Finds

Yesterday me, mom, and dad went on a little day trip. To Marble Falls.  Which is a gem of a place, it was beautiful and peaceful.  This place had good fishing spots, something we have been looking for since moving here, now we found it.  It is about nine miles out of Burnett Texas.  There are fishing places in Austin,but this place is gorgeous.  I love day tripping, and always have fun when with my mom and dad that way. But that is a story for another day.  Today is a day of photos from my day trip to Marble Falls.  Enjoy.

 

 

Another thing I saw on our way to marble falls, was in Burnett Texas, they have an air museum.  They are also having an air show in September, and I am hoping that I can attend that.  Too Soon to tell,but keeping fingers crossed, since I have a thing about air shows, and have missed them for so many years.  It would be good to get to one.  Another story for another day my friends.

Ho, ho, ohhh you know… Let get on with it.

Merry Christmas family, friends, and online readers…  Much has gone on this week.  The biggest thing for me is I got laid off from my job, well not only me, but a whole lot of people got the axe.  A week ago.  I really did not hit me for a couple of days that I was jobless, but none the less, here I am, in the process of looking for new work.  I had my little pity party the day I got canned, now all that is done and over with, and it is now time to look, and search hard for a new job.  I have put in aplications, and I am so very thankful that my mom and dad live here, because they can help me out a little with things.  I am positive everyday that I will be getting a new job if not today, tomorrow, in the coming weeks.  Hey, new year,new job, new insight on life.  I am not worried, I know I will get something really soon.  That was really the biggest thing that happened to me over this week, and today it is Christmas day.  I am loving life, and enjoying it with every day The good Lord sees fit for me.

Today, mom and dad, and I went for a ride out to Waco, TX.  I do love long rides, since I don’t drive, I am a awesome rider.  The weather was cloudy, and there was a winter nip in the air, it was a pretty perfect Christmas for me.  Just about the way I like them to be.  Since I am not a cold weather person, I prefer to have a blue sky kind of winter Christmas day, hey, it is just the kind of person I am.  For me, the weather has been awesome.  Still like a spring /fall kind of week.

Soon the year will be ending, and a new year will be starting, I look forward to  another beginning.  Here’s to a very merry Christmas my friends, family, and readers.  Hope that your day is just as Merry.

The road less traveled…

Looks like this road will finally be less traveled by both my mom and dad.  The road between Austin and San Angelo.  Today, me and mom traveled to San Angelo to finish up getting prescription’s for him.   He is down here fully.  And the good news is that he will start his new job in the morning . He will be working,  for United moving.  Yup, already on a job.  It is all good.  So this road will not be traveled often.  There will still be times that they will go, but for now, these wheels are heading home to Austin Texas.

The weather Here has been much rainy, and plenty of flooding.  From this hurricane.  It is still raining at this moment, so much rain that there are places that are flooded.  So I had to call out from work due to the floods. 

Today is also the day my step dad is officially moved to Austin with my mom, yesterday, was his last day at his job.  Of course he will get a job here, but they are all here now.
