Friday the 13th

Maggie's brother Tim has been home for the past two days. Maggie has been beside herself. She knew he was coming on Tuesday and kept making her talker say "Tim, Nice to see you." This went on for hours before he actually arrived. When he did, she was delighted. They had a ton of fun together at Costco yesterday. Well Maggie did, anyway. She just said "Tim! Tim! Tim! on her talker over and over again. Finally he would lean down next to her and say WHAT?. That cracked her up. She will be sad to see him go, but he has to go back this morning. 

Today is the last weekday before school starts. (cue Halleluia chorus). Maggie and I have to go do something fun for our last outing. We have been on an extended staycation since summer school let out. We have gone someplace every single day since then so that Maggie would have some fun. Ok, I know, Costco is not generally considered fun, but I promise you it was very fun for Maggie. Not sure yet, what we will do today but we will end summer with a bang. . 

Today is the second anniversary of this blog. I started writing in on August 13, 2008. At the time we were losing our nursing care and had to set up a system to do it ourselves - that is to find the nurses etc and then get reimbursed from the state. I thought that was an insurmountable challenge, but now I've been doing it for two years. 

No wonder I'm tired.

Happy Friday the 13th all.


  1. I so wish we lived closer and could go on joint outings together. I admire your pluck about it. I'm singing in the hallelujah chorus over here for school to start back. We don't go until September 13th! (and we haven't had any summer school due to budget cuts!)

  2. I read about this on another blog, and it made me think of You and Maggie since I know that you guys are in CA.


Hi Maggie loves your comments. It may take a while for the comment to post, but you will see it eventually.
