Good afternoon, and what a busy day it has been so far. Jenny and Jose had to get a trailer to put all the stuff sitting in my living room that is for this big party. I took Carol, Adias and Jason to get pedicures. Carol is sixty-three years old and this is the first time she has ever had a manicure or pedicure.
That just breaks my heart. We went shopping and I helped her pick out some cloths for the party
which she preferred pants and a blouse with sleeves instead of a dress. Next was lunch and than a run to Wal-Mart for more supplies for the party. So since I have a few slow minutes and I will try to blog just a little more. Where was I?
On Sunday our tour guide took us on a yacht to cruise to the island of Isla Mujeres. We drove golf carts to a turtle’s farm. Next we sailed in a catamaran to snorkel in the Caribbean Water. I have never snorkeled before so my throat hurt from swallowing so much salt water. Before we knew it the weekend was over, but never forgotten.
As I had said I took my father in law to see his sister in laws at least once a month. It was a great time for all of us but the sad part was my father in law would forget every evening by the time I got home. A couple of times I would dial my Aunt Yolanda’s phone so he could talk to her and she would remind him of the afternoon we had. It was sad to see him cry on the phone because he just couldn’t remember.
On August 19, I learned that Jimmy got a new job, again. This time we were moving to Arizona. We
moved into dad’s house because he didn’t want to move out of his house and we wanted him to have a stable environment. Time has changed and dad has no idea where he is now, so we felt like we could move him to Arizona with us. We had a lot of chores ahead of us. We had to clean out dad’s house and
garage and get it ready to sell. We both still had our jobs. Dad was still going to the day care five days a week and Gina was still in high school.
I took pictures of my little group of friends, meaning my father in law, Aunt Ann, Aunt Betty and Aunt Yolanda and made sure that each of us had a copy. Gina had a home coming dance to go to before we moved and all of the relatives on the Gata side of the family had a big picnic to tell us good-bye.
Well a lot is going on here and I have to get off of this machine. Remember what I told you about mixed families. Well a little jealously is going on with Jose now that Jason is here. It is hard for him to see that Jason has to be part of her family, always, because of Adias. Hopefully I will get back on by Monday. Keep smiling and do something nice for someone. You maybe surprised at what an impact you might of made.
