Well, in some ways, things are slowing down but in other ways, they're not.

It looks like the sale of the house fell through! :( Not sure what happened but the buyers did not follow through! I start my new job next Monday.......... YIPPY!

Got a brief 3 minute phone call from my son, Josh, last Thursday and he said he was "great" and "having a blast"! I've never heard basic training described like that before. Haven't heard from him since! I know that is to be expected, so I'm not worried! I'm just being a mom!

My brother is still having issues. He sounds stronger but the infection is still a problem. They are transferring him to U.C.L.A. Medical Center, second opinion and possible more surgery. My parents are going back over to California, within the next couple of days. They have no car and funds are limited, so it will be interesting to see how this works out. I understand how they need to be there with Frank. My poor mom keeps breaking down in tears. In the mean time, my brother Mike (who lives with my parents) have some medical issues too. They found a "spot" on his lung and is currently undergoing test.

Do keep us in your prayers!

Tonight, John and I started bowling again, on a league here. We enjoy bowling and it's a good outlet from all the other issues in life. I know I need to start having fun again!

I remember BJ (before John), my life was so boring and in such a rutt.......... It's diffently not been boring since John! He's coming along with his Cardiac Rehab and is starting to gain more energy! He's even starting to joke around again and make me laugh again.

I love you all!

He sure is a nice guy, Onie. Both Dan and I liked him a lot. You make a great couple, and I'm delighted you're starting to have fun again!
