I had a really rough day today. Just starting to feel better but have not packed for tomorrow and just feel really overwhelmed. Very nervous about driving a 26 foot truck. Itís going to be very expensive to move but Iím sure it all work out .

My best to everyone in my class. I love you all

Ok. Hereís the funny so far folks:

This is the troublemaker at this little airport in western Colorado.


The security authorities here were asking if I had any food in my bag. I said yes, ďsome bacon!ď
He said, ďyou have bacon?ď I said ďYes, I have baconÖď. He said, ďwell we will have to confiscate that!ď

He had me pull it out and put it into the bucket to go in with my shoes and my purse. Then he shouted, ďhey everyone! She has bacon in here!ď

The whole airport laughed and as you can see, this is a very very small airport .



And I got to keep my bacon!😍

That's very funny, Free, and I'm glad they realized somebody has to bring home the bacon.

Thanks for the smile Free and Guener

I’m struggling a bit this weekend. Lots of tears, missing Mum. The AV is hassling me quite a bit to anaesthtise my sadness in wine but I am trying to make it leave me alone for a while. I’m going to a yoga class this morning. I’ll post more a bit later

I know your mum would not want you sad, or drunk Willow.
Remember the good times - they're always there in your heart

Thanks John, I figured the first everything will be the worst... I just ate a heap of chocolate. I feel a little better with some comfort food although the sugar might keep me awake lol. At least the AV has shut up for now. Iím off to bed. Iím really tired and I know that doesnít help my emotional state. Night night everyone ❤️

Mom was discharged from the hospital yesterday afternoon, and I stayed the night with her to make sure everything would be okay. Tomorrow I will go back out for Mother's Day and bring her some more groceries with foods that she can eat. I'm grateful that she is on the mend.

I'm doing some house chores today to keep myself occupied, and the place needed some attention. It's better for me to have things in order around me. The cats really hate the vacuum, though!

Willow, we will be thinking of you as you have the first anniversary of your loss of your mum.

A shout out goes to all of us on the sober way of living our lives in a way that moves us forward instead of what we once knew.

I'm so happy to hear that you had a lovely day as remembrance on Mother's Day, Willow. I'm sure that times were a bit emotional, too, but that's okay. Happy Mother's day to all you moms out there!
