Movies I love

August 27, 2015

I think I have something of a busy weekend coming up. And I’m trying to put around five hours of work in each day, so I think I’d better do this tonight..

I have to be in my wheelchair in to order to do anything on my device/computer. That may be one of my least favorite things about my disability right now. There are times when I’d like to get some other things done, but I can’t stand sitting in the wheelchair anymore. So some evenings, more on weekends, I’ll get out and watch movies. I like a lot of the clean romances out there.. Some of my favorites are…

  • Pride andPrejudice-and yes I have copies of both, but the BBC version is my favorite
  • Anne of Green Gables\Anne of Avonlea-love these too. Don’t care much for the third movie and I’m not sure why.
  • Downton Abbey- love the first two seasons.
  • Little Women- remember that Grandpa took me to see that in the theater
  • These are some of my favorites that I watch over and over.. What are yours?

Having my first brother

August 20, 2015

I don’t know if it is because I’ve just joined a new host agency, or if it’s just that the house is so quiet these days, but I’m starting to put in a lot of time on work. And I love it. There is so much to learn and figure out. I love this business, I love what I’m doing day to day.

I do not remember the time before my sister was born. I was less than two years old when she was born. However, I was nine when we found out I was having another sibling. I was thrilled. I’m pretty sure I had thought it would just be my sister and I. We knew several large families from church [I mean like five, six, seven children]. My sister and I were so excited welcoming a little one into our home. I really don’t remember caring whether it was a boy or a girl.

I’m the oldest, but because of my disability I’m like a younger one.. I wouldn’t say I am babied, but of course everyone does for me. I’m not allowed to stay home by myself. A lot of times when I go out to eat with my siblings, they’ll pay for me.. Anyway, I know I was kind of sad when we brought my first baby brother home from the hospital and I was left in the car while they took the baby inside.. I do not remember being sad as the rest of my siblings came along.. Having a big family is one of my greatest joys..

Where I’ve been…

August 14, 2015

To be honest, I’m itching to sit and read a while. I’m tired of working, and just feel rather bleh.. The last two weekends have been chocked full of good time with family and friends.. This weekend, I’m hoping to see some friends Sunday. Other than that I don’t think I have any plans.?. Kind of missing being with people I love.

The weekend before last was my grandfather’s funeral… Grandpa had been unwell, both pphysically and mentally for a long time. We had decided to put him into a home, and I know he was pretty unhappy where he was.. He got sick and then his heart gave out on him.. Anyway, most of my family gathered for the funeral.. That day felt so crazy. There were just things we had done; meet for breakfast, get on to the funeral, have lunch with everyone that came, and then we gathered as just family at the burial site. After that we did get to go to a hotel and have some time to sit relax together.. Being at the hotel was nice. But my plan was to drive home with Mom and one of my brothers that night. My sisters were going to spend the weekend with my favorite aunt and her family. And I was so sad that I couldn’t be part of the weekend fun. Feels like I get less and less time with my aunt.. But at the last minute it was decided that I could go with my sisters.. We had an awesome time. My aunt had just bought a house with a pool. And most my cousins spent the day there hanging at the pool.

Then last weekend was my brother’s wedding. Again I got to see a lot of family and friends.. But now my brother and his new wife have moved across the country. And to me things feel too quiet.. Oh, I have gotten a lot of work done.. But now I’m feeling at loose ends.
