Another week has already passed by. It was a very frigid week.
On Monday, Jan. 6, I was supposed to go shopping with my daughter, Marcia, to buy her a birthday present. I started calling her house about 9 a.m. and every half-hour until noon and she didn’t answer.
Christmas is over. On Thursday, Dec. 26 I wrote my news and took it to Altamont. It had to be in early as the holiday falls in the middle of the week.
I picked up some Chinese food and ate with my daughter, Marcia Pangburn and Kyra and we watched family DVDs.
On Monday, Dec. 16, my daughter, Marcia Pangburn, came and had breakfast with me.
On Monday, my daughter, Marcia Pangburn came over and we enjoyed breakfast together and visiting for a couple of hours.
Then I went and picked up the gifts I ordered which I’ll reveal after Christmas.
The roads were still very slippery especially the driveway to the Reformed Church in Berne.
Monday rolled around again and I spent it with Danielle and Zoey.
Danielle wanted to go to BJ’s, so we took off. We dropped the news off, and then went to Wal-Mart where Danielle had seen a bookcase she wanted.
Monday, Dec. 2, I spent with my granddaughter, Danielle, and great-granddaughter, Zoey. It’s just enjoyable being with them.
We went to Wal-Mart, BJ’s, and Hannaford, nothing exciting, just groceries but Danielle was happy to stock the freezer.
The holidays are here and I am learning to ask for help when I really need it.
On Monday, Nov. 18, I wrote my news for The Enterprise and took it to Altamont. My daughter, Kathy, came and spent the afternoon with me.
In the evening, at 5 p.m., I went to the NEAT Dinner at the Berne Reformed Church. NEAT stands for Not Eating Alone Tonight. There were lots of people there.
Monday was Veteran’s Day. Brandon had the day off but he didn’t have Samson and Nichole, as it was Veronica’s turn for a Federal holiday.
I went up to Danielle’s and held Zoey for an hour and it gave her time to get a casserole in the oven for dinner.
I ate with Brandon, Jenn and Iain as they asked me first.
Monday, Nov. 4, came and was very busy for Danielle, Zoey and me.
Danielle took family leave from work so we could get all her dad’s affairs in order.
Our first stop was the bank to get some checks and pay some bills. Then Zoey had a doctor’s appointment.
