Last week of 2007

January 1st, 2008 at 05:59 am

First, thank you to all for your prayers. My dad passed away on Saturday morning. Which is the day after I asked for your prayers. I was able to be away from work the entire week before he died to care for him (my boss is very family oriented and understanding.) I will miss my dad greatly- he was a good, good man.

Today my mom went back in the hospital and tonight she had surgery to put a stint in for a blockage to her heart. So far, so good.

On Wednesday, we will learn if my husband will need back surgery.

Somedays you take it hour by hour because otherwise it gets overwhelming.

I have been thinking alot about a 2008 gameplan and budget. I feel a need to CONTROL something in my life...and finances are one thing I can at least control on paper. RIGHT??

I am taking baby steps right now...especially since life has been so rough.

Honest guys...I really am not down all the time. I swear. Lately theres just alot going on. And I miss my dad. Alot.

I think back to my early blogs...I was home full time, baking waffles for my grandson and taking care of my parents...little did I realize how quickly those would become the ;good ol days'.....

    ((hugs)) I'm sorry for your loss. At least, you got to spend time with him in his last days, I'm sure that meant a lot to both of you...
