I apologize for not writing last Saturday. things just got kind of crazy. But I’m pretty excited about April. I think it is going to be an awesome month of fun.

  • My birthday is April ninth. I don’t know what we’re doing to celebrate. But I’m sure we’ll figure out something.
  • Our family is kind of involved with a pregnancy resource center, and later in April they are going to have their big fundraiser dinner. We’ll be getting to hear Gianna Jessen speak. Gianna’s mother aborted her, but she survived and now goes around the world speaking out against abortion. I’ve heard her on the radio, but I’m looking forward to seeing her in person.
  • Our friends from Cyprus are coming for a quick visit. And we’ll be having a party so we can get a good update from them.
  • And then at end of this month, we are going to get together with my Mom’s family. It’s been a while since I’ve seen them, so I’m excited about that. We always have fun together.

More about Blue

I’m finished with work for today, and I’m very pleased to say that things are going a lot better on my new communication device. I’ve decided to call my new communication device Blue. And the reason for that is when we first learned that I was to get the new device, that our request for funding had been approved, the company called Mom. And she came back to ask me what color I wanted the device to be.. I was so excited to be getting the new device. The device I was borrowing was doing what I needed it to, but I knew that it was slowly dying.

I am doing a lot better on access. There is kind of a funny story about that. I started using Blue on Wednesday. And I felt myself getting better some each day, but I was still quite slow.. Monday afternoon I had the brilliant thought that we might need to adjust the positioning of the the device. Adjusting that helped more than I thought it would. Felt kind of silly for not having thought of that sooner.

Several of my siblings and Mom and are going to get together with some old friends this week. These are friends I used to go to grade school with, and we’d play together after school a lot of afternoons. I’m looking forward to the time with family and friends.

I’m once again worn out. But this week I think I have a good excuse. I’m on my new communication device. It’s working great.. I just have to figure out how to use everything. I’m in the the process of figuring out all my passwords and all that fun stuff. It’s taking kind of a different physical movement, and so I’m trying to adjust to that. And sometimes when I’m excited or stressed, which I’m kind of feeling both lately, [excited to have it, stressed because I’m slow and not learning quickly], my body does weird things. I’m kind of fighting a lot of different things. I would appreciate prayer.

Another Saturday, and thankfully the work stuff I wanted to do is done. The biggest news here is that I’ve received my new device. I got it on Tuesday, but haven’t gotten to play with it yet. I don’t have the right tips. And besides, there is a lot to get to set up. Someone is coming Tuesday to help me set everything up this coming Tuesday. I’m hoping that my adjustment period is pretty easy.

We were with my sisters and their children for a couple of days this week. I always love being with my siblings. And I’m noticing that as my nieces and nephews grow up, it gets easier for me to have actual conversations with them which I love.
