Summer vacation

Today was Colin's last day of school until August. He will start the summer program in 2 weeks.
G's feet gave him a lot of trouble lately. Many place he goes he have to wait until he can walk.
Yesterday at my niece graduation he almost fell. I think he needs a walker or cane. I've also given him to link to get a disability sticker for the car. He hasn't filled it out yet.

Waymon Tisdale

It was floored when I read the first of a flood of emails saying Waymon Tisdale passed away this morning.
I was very sad. Everyone at work was talking about it. I got a few phone calls. The world has lost another shining star of a person. I remember his smile, his upbeat happy spirit. I would go many years without seeing him & he would give me a big hug like it was yesterday.
My heart goes out to his family. They are in my thoughts & prayers. 44 yrs old is too few on this earth in my opinion. Why does cancer strike so many beautiful humans on this earth?! It makes me mad. I guess I just don't hear of any mean or nasty people getting cancer. All of the people I personally know that have or have had cancer are/was truly awesome people; people that add something positive to this world.
I'm sure Waymon a PK (preacher's kid) is out of pain & in a better place. Rest in Peace. You will be missed.

Allergy season

Little precious & are are suffering big time with this allergy season. Last night he was itching all over. I gave him medicine & it didn't seem to help. I gave him another type & it didn't seem to help. I felt so helpless. I think I will get him allergy tested when school is out in a few weeks.
I can't figure out what is breaking him out.
I'm having a hard time too this allergy season. The medications I have aren't doing much if anything. UGH!!
G is fighting the pain battle. His new Dr. keeps switching medication but nothing seems to help.
I think G is does well with not being frustrated.

I had a great Mother's Day. I have a beautiful handmade necklace & card. The card is the best.
I'll get a photo uploaded soon.

I didn't spend national scrapbook day scrapping or anything related. I did spend most of the day Sunday in my scraproom. I rearranged some of my cubes. I labeled drawers, rearranged drawers. I made punches & embossing samples for my board. I have a large framed cork board close to my desk. I'm putting samples of items I want to use more. For example I have an example of my embossing folders & some of my punches. I do have a smaller portable book with these items that I made so I didn't make a double purchase. It is in the car most of the time so I can take a peak or take it into a store. It was fun to be a little creative.

I spent most of Saturday online researching wheat free, soy free recipes & making a shopping list. I have so many allergies; I have to thoroughly find out what is in most items, where they come from, what food family they belong too. Fun stuff. I just wish I was getting better. I'm sure I am, I just don't feel like it. I have to keep hanging in there & going in the right direction.
I'm doing the same thing on my weight loss journey. I do think I'm losing weight because I'm naturally eating less carbs. I skip the bread & gravy always. I haven't found a sandwich place yet that has wf/gf bread. So I'm eating more salads. Hopefully I'm getting healthier. That's the goal anyway.
