Time keeps getting away from me. And since AOL did away with their journals I really have not been much into on line journaling! It is hard to keep up with others without alerts.
Bethany got her cast off last Friday and is doing well.
My mom is doing much better too.

Bethany and I had really bad week, Probably the worse week of the year, hope never to have another week like it EVER!
Bethany came home from school on Monday and said "Mommy, Maddy's daddy died!" I said "Maddy who?" she does have a few friends named Maddy, BUT I just knew what was coming next. "Maddy R, mommy!" I said "OH MY GOD!" I was in shock! I had to wait and call Maddy's mom after I was done work! I asked her if I heard was true! She said it was and I cried, (I still cry re-telling it). I told her I was so sorry! I asked her if there was anything we could do for her, she said NO BUT if there was anything she could do for us, her husband was such a giving man she wants to keep his memory alive and do for others as he had done! Then she asked if we could bring Bethany over as Maddy was asking for her. It's so sad he was such a good man. He was a police officer, actually a violent crimes detective, he served in dessert storm. His viewing was huge! I never saw such a large veiwing. There were changing of the gaurds and police horses. He loved Journey, they played Journey at his veiwing.
It was so sad. My heart aches for his wife and children! He is going to be missed!

Lots going on here lately that keeps me busy. Having lots of changes done to the house, new couch! Took all the wall paper down going to paint soon!
Going to get a new chandler for the dinning room! My old was is just that old and icky gross looking!
For those who don't read my private J ( not that I write there a lot anyway!) My mom (Jane) is still in the Hospital ... She is now in her third hospital ( moved yesterday) and has been there one day and is already showing signs of improvement! My mom is finally coming out of it and talking, she told my Aunt and Uncle( who have been acting as POA (power of attorney) for her ) that the second hospital ( the one she just left yesterday was treating her horrible they were mean and cruel to her and were not helping her at all! She finally is talking and remembers everything! She asked about me and my sister something she has not done since she went into the first hospital back in Aug!
She was moved to the new hospital (in Philly) to have a treatment called Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)... it is a treatment for depression that uses electricity to trigger a seizure and is suppose to get her out of this deep depression that she has been in) ... I know times have changed BUT this is what her mother (my grandmother)died of in 1973. They do things differently now, BUT it still has us nervous Please Pray that it works for her and everything goes well! We may be going down to see her this weekend!

Bethany gets her cast off tomorrow! Can you believe it, it's been 4 weeks already!

Our Weekend

WOW what a long weekend! Saturday and Sunday Bethany and I had to get up at 5:30 am each morning be out of the house by 6:30 and at competitions by 7:30. Then we were there till 4:30 in the afternoon! Talk about tired! And day light savings didn't help! My enternal clock then ahd me up at 4:30 am on Sunday!
Bethany's squad came in third in her division on Saturday and won a medal, then on Sunday her squad won a trophy! Not sure what it was for though, it was SO loud I missed what they said it was for!
The first day I forgot to take the camera but there was one there that was taking pictures non stop .... Got a real good one of Bethany! Talk about prefect timing!

I am trying a picture but it doesn't look like it is working! Will try again later.
Then Sunday I took my camera but from were I was on the bleachers they looked like ants! The first school was way to small to hold over 600 cheerleaders and their families! The second school was much bigger and there were even more Cheerleaders on Sunday, 800!

I hurt my back over the weekend! Not sure what I did, BUT I hurt it even more yesterday! And my back has not hurt in over a year!

Bethany gets her cast off in 10 days! BOY time flys!

I will try to post the picture again.... Nope it won't let me....

Well my day care kids are napping I think I am going to take some tylenol and go rest too!
