Taking Care Of Business

Ordered dad's foot stone today.  Still have to mail paper work for veteran's medallion.

One more thing taken care of.

Missing The Crazy Calls

Bad weather in Texas always meant a phone call from my dad warning that we would be having that weather in a day or two.  I so miss those calls, the ones that drove me crazy.

Be Careful

I went to the theater with a friend tonight. Her mom called, telling her to walk carefully so she would not fall. I miss hearing these words from my dad.

Slot Machines

I don't like slot machines but played $1 in Aruba in honor of my dad.  On that $1 I got $15.77 back.  I took my winnings and put another dollar in the machine.  I lost.  Dad would be proud.

Another Funeral

I had to drive a friend to a funeral home to make arrangements for her step mom.  I was happy to wait in the car while she took care of business, even though I was in car for an hour.

I will have to cope with funeral on Wednesday but once is better than twice.

Missing Him

My mom has been gone six years but dad still signed every birthday card "love, mommy and daddy".

This will be my first birthday without one of those cards I love so much.

My dad was always cold.  It hurts to think of him lying out there in this frigid weather.

One Less Worry

No worries today about how to visit dad.  Parking around his apartment would be impossible because of the snow.
