Moved back in…

To my apartment, me and the little girl.  She sniffed, slinked, and scurried around the place.  Meowing loudly, finally getting familiar with things.  She loves the new cat tree, got a real bargin at pet smart.  What I thought was 99 bucks, was on sale for 69 dollars.  Oh believe me, I spent money last night, between the cat and some food for myself, I almost wept, but it was necessary.

I now really look forward to coming home after a long days or nights work to see my kittie girl.  Now that she is mine and my responsibility.  Anyways, there are great responsibilities as a adult I have to do Monday, one of which, need to update my resume.  I am trying to stick with this job, for at least a year, not sure that will happen, as so much nonsense is going on there.  So that is that.

Last weekend, went to the free day at Zilker, went to the botanical garden.  Invited nephwe and sister who have never been, it was great fun.  Photos below.







Welp, until the next adventure, keep it fun.

Mmm nope!!!

So today got the notion to try some bbq, I have tried Bill Millers, and it was crap.  So today went for the one down the street from the apartments.  Branch Bbq, I got two plates, one for me, one for my dad.  

This was the 5 meat sampler.  Rib,sausage, brisket,pork loin,chicken, two sides, beans potato salad,coleslaw. Cherry pie and pecan pie.  Spent 50 bucks to see if it was good.  The out come was 😝👎👎.  We sampled it all, and the only decent thing was the chopped beef.  The other things were flavorless.  It was bland and dry.  Nothing spectacular about the pies, and well fifty bucks tossed in the trash.  I definatly will not go back there.  Even the sauce could not save this bland bbq.  Moving on.  Will try others along the way.  To be continued…

Fifty-Two Weeks of My Healing…

Week 9:

A photo of my step dad and mom, we visted Marathon TX, and this was Santa Rita No 1.  It is a oil derek.  Those were some good times we had, taking long drives and rides.  Something that I will miss dearly.  She sure loved to go.  I miss you mom, I have you in my heart always.  Perhaps I too will find someone who dosen’t mind driving, and me riding to long, and adventurous places.

A day at the Capitol, This was the first trip that I took with her and my stepdad when they came to visit me In September of 2013.  She loved going down to the Capitol, her and I were alike, when it came to exploring new places.  I remember several times going to the Capitol with her, we finally even ate at the Capitol Grille a couple of times.  These are the very good memories that I will keep.

Week 3:

 

mom at museum

This photo was the first time mom had gone to The Blanton Museum.  It was a fun day after we got there, before it was a little nerve wracking, only because we took the bus, and we walked down to the museum, and I was figuring out which way to turn, but once I righted myself, we were on our way, and she loved it.  I never did get a chance to take her to other museums around Austin, but she really did love this one.  This is the stacked waters wall she is standing in front of.  It was a very fun day indeed.

Life goes on…

And so do I…  Day by day, as I wake from each one.  Daylight gives way to nighttime, and it continues on.  Today back to work, for both me and dad.  He took off, to deal with social security, and also a doctor’s appointment.  He is going to have to keep an eye on his high blood pressure, it was a bit high, and they found he is a little anemic. Bills are getting paid, slowly, and a bit late, but still being paid.

Yesterday, I donated money to a go fund me, for a friend on facebook, who is trying to pay for fees to get to see his little boy.  I felt really strong about donating to his fund, I myself had set up a go fund me, to help pay for bills for when mom died, and what I got was very helpful, and it just made me want to pay it forward to someone else that may be in need.

This is true, life does go on, and so do I.

Fifty-two weeks of my healing.

I have decided to post a photo of my mom every week, for 52 weeks, I think it will be a healing process for me of sorts.  I have chosen today to do this, I shall see how it all goes, starting something new is always a challenge.  I hope I can complete this.  Here goes.

I loved this photo, she would love going to lake marble falls, just to feed the ducks, one in particular that we called diaper booty, lol, which was a big goose.  I will truly miss those times.
