2009 so far

January 6, 2009 by  

For those who were really glad that 2008 ended, well for me anyway 2009 is more of the same so far. Less than an hour after the new year started a very close friend of my parents died. Floyd Wilmes was a very good man, devoted to his family. He will be missed. The next day, my friend Karan lost her father in law. Mike (son in law) has also been dealing with a very ill father. Floy has been hospitalized for a few days and now is in a nursing home in Evanston. Elaina, who works for Steve, got a call on the weekend that her mother suffered a stroke and massive heart attack. The prognosis for that is not good. So… I really have not noticed that things have changed… Have you? Oh yes I guess change wont happen until after Jan 20th.
Yesteday morning we woke to our wonderful Wyoming wind. And the day before we had been blessed with over 8″ of snow…SSOOOO guess where all of that ended up….right…you guessed it… our drive way and front yard. Oh yes… the next door neighbors got their share also. Fortunately a very nice young man who works with neighbor Scotty came by with a 4 wheeler and a blade and by 5:30 he rescued us. So see no change there either. More of the same.. Oh yes I forgot… change wont happen until after Jan 20th. My bad.
Lets see, it is now January 6th.. so I guess we have to wait another 2 weeks to see if things can get any better.
Baby Braelyn has a birthday already. I can hardly believe she is going to be 1 already. Happy 1st Birthday Precious Princess. It is very hard knowing we can not be there to help you celebrate. Wish you were closer baby girl.. Love you very much. Hope you have a wonderful Princess Party.
Brandon is doing well after the surgery. Nate is busy wrestling again starting this week as school started again in Ft Collins Monday. Wont start here until next week.
Belated Happy New Year everyone.
The mom
