I’M GOING… nowhere until I’m done scanning in ALL the VA documents and composing more letters to our congressman in hopes of clearing things up – yay, like that’s going to happen, but I have to follow procedure. For every step forward we seem to take 3 backwards! This week though we’re moving onto multiple letters.
I AM WONDERING… just who to contact next regarding the VA mess. We’re finally meeting up with a new service officer this morning – seems like we’re always starting over.
MY READING LIST… Robyn Carr’s Whispering Rock & Second Chance Pass
MY TV LINEUP THIS WEEK… is a long list, but that’s the beauty of all of them being on the DVR – we can do series marathons on rainy days and still skip the commercials

- CRIMINAL MINDS
- L & O SVU

I’M HOPING… things turn around soon.
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO… getting away for a few days next month.
I’M LEARNING… how to be patient, but also how to squeak the wheel for oil!
AROUND THE HOUSE… organization is finally winning – rooms are being painted, baseboards are getting painted and fine dusting is being done.
I’M PRAYING… that today’s test is negative and that the cancer has not returned and to live in the day and not worry about the future as much.
A FAVORITE QUOTE…
Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future. ~John F. Kennedy
