I don't know what the heck happened, but I tried to post and it showed up four times with nothing there. At least I hadn't written anything, but everything just went away and when I brought the blog up that is what I saw. I'll try again and hope that it all works out this time.
I have been feeling a little better every day. I even have times during the day when I'm not dizzy. I will be glad when that goes away completely.
Anyway, this post is not going to be about my health. Hopefully it will be a little brighter. As most of you know we are planning to go to Sue's family reunion on the 21st. It will be so neat to see all of her family again. I'm also looking forward to seeing Todd's new apartment, so I'm hoping someone will leave Newport Beach with us long enough to take us over there. I'm still so stoked that he will be starting medical school in such a short time. Our daughter Jayne hadn't planned on coming this year as she felt she couldn't go to the beach and to her brother's wedding in Lake Tahoe next month. She called us a few days ago and said she had accepted a new job. She gave her two weeks notice thinking she would be working a couple of weeks more this month and starting her new job on the 1st of August. She will be back in her element, having worked most of her years in retail. She was an assistand manager waiting to be promoted to manage a store of her own. Unfortunately, people in manager jobs in the Salt Lake area never leave those jobs. She could have gone to Colorado or Arizona, but she couldn't leave Salt Lake because of her 20 year old daughter who is autistic. She lives with her dad. But Jayne takes her a couple of days and nights during the week. She and her husband (yes, they are still married) but haven't lived together for over ten years. They each own their own home but are still very much connected when it comes to taking care of Kirstin. Jayne worked for Mervyn's for many many years, so when all the stores closed, she had to get a new job and ended up as an assistant manager waiting for a transfer as manager of her own Harbor Freight Tool store. It also seemed like she wouldn't go anywhere because managers in that area just don't quit. She got a call from Marshall's who are opening five stores in Utah. She will be an assistant manager and they are going to train her to open as manager of their second new store. I think she will enjoy getting back to her rat race that she was always so much a part of. She will also be getting a sizable raise, so she is happy about that. When she gave her two weeks notice, they wouldn't accept it, so she has all that extra time that she had planned to be working. She decided then to come to Newport Beach and I just found out that she is going to come and stay a few days with us before the reunion. We will be seeing her on Sunday. Talk about giving my spirits a lift!!
We will be adding to our tans by being outside quite a bit. She loves hanging out by and in the swimming pool. Fortunately for her, our weather is going to be much nicer for a few days next week. It will go back to the 90's and that is really nice weather for July here.
We are all trying to lose a few pounds before the wedding so I won't be doing any baking or anything. In fact, I think she was pretty happy about that because whenever they have come to visit us, I always bake up a storm and make all kinds of goodies to get fat on. This way she won't have to worry about will power.
Well, blgging buddies, at least you will know that I haven't forgotten you. One of these days, I will write about my other kids in a little more detail. You all know so much about Sue. I do have three other daughters and our only son, Rich. I love so hearing all about your children and grandchildren. Maybe you might be a bit interested in hearing a little more about ours.
Til then, thanks again for all your kind thoughts and wishes for my recovery. Please excuse mistakes, I just don't have the energy to try to edit this.
My best to all of you.
