I am in heaven may now with my nephew David and his wife Melissa…

 Monday was another hot and muggy day, I'm kind of glad I stayed in bed but I'm sorry I missed out on a trip downtown with Janet, Robert, David and Melissa. Lisa came in and we did some personal care, we were too busy to do it Saturday and I was feeling really bad… Such a relief. Janet and Robert came in last night and I'm not sure how long they are saying, Janet is going to drop Robert off at the airport, but I hope I get to spend a little bit of time with them before they go. Janet, David and Melissa took Robert to the airport and Janet decided to stay one more night. Rosa came in and I got to take a nice long hot bath.

 Tuesday was a pretty good day. Lisa came in and got me up and David and Melissa took me over to Costco to shop for the week, I really really love Costco. I came back home and rested for a bit and Luann came by for a visit, I haven't seen her for about 15 years. She was my live-in caregiver when I came home from the hospital after my injury in Los Banos. It was really great to see her and we got to catch up a little bit but hopefully I will see her again more often, she lives in Salinas and comes here a lot. Omar came by in the morning and built a wooden box around the automatic cat feeder because the raccoons keep tearing it apart, I doubt that will stop them but we will see. He said his friend has a raccoon trap so we're going to try to trap it and take it to Watsonville so can't find its way back, let it be somebody else's problem.

Wednesday was a great day, it was a little windy but otherwise perfect weather. Lisa came and got me up and took Robby for a cruise through the lagoon, down to the end of the wharf and back and then home. While he is feeling much better and that is such a relief. Melissa and I went to the Olive connection to try more vinegar and oil combinations for our salads, we are really having a lot of fun with the different flavors. The lady down there is so nice and helpful and knowledgeable. We cruised over to the farmer's market and bought some stuff for salads, some fruit and other fresh vegetables to get us through the week. Teresa and Melissa stay at the farmers market and I cruised home with Robby. Rosa came in and put me to bed and again I was asleep before she left.

Thursday was another sick day in bed, instead of feeling better I feel worse… I hate being sick. Karen came in and we did some personal care and I just slept the rest of the day. Rosa came in and I got to take a nice long hot bath and I felt a little bit better.

Friday was a great day. I got up and were going to go to Big Sur by Melissa was feeling very good and were getting ready to go on vacation so she wanted to rest for the day. Karen came in and got me up and I decided to take a nice long cruise with Robby. We cruised through the lagoon and up towards Westcliff Drive, the weather was getting warmer so we just cruised along the beaches where it was a little cooler. We cruised all the way down almost to natural bridges each, I haven't been down this far for a long time and I forgot how beautiful it was… I am always so thankful for Google Glass when I'm out and about like this. When we came back down Westcliff Drive I wanted to cruise to the end of the wharf but I was afraid it was going to be too hot so we decided to just come home. Since I haven't been feeling well I'm just really exhausted by the end of the day. I came home and Elena put me to bed and I just rested for the rest of the evening.

Saturday I was back to feeling rotten so I just stayed in bed. Karen came in and we did some personal care and I slept again most of the day. Elena came in and I'm going to take a bath but the lift wasn't working, I think it didn't really get charged from the night before… We will have to double check that. I ended up just staying in bed and feeling miserable.

Sunday was a day I have been waiting for or couple of months, too bad I felt so awful. I thought about staying in bed and giving my bid number for the wharf to wharf race to Lisa and just let her go but she hurt her back the day before doing hot yoga so I decided to get up and go anyway. I am really glad that I did because I got some really good pictures and it was so fun to see the energy everyone had. At the end of the race I was supposed to meet a friend who I used to work with and I looked around for a little bit a couple of times but I just felt miserable and wanted to go home so I texted Teresa to come and pick me up, and met her up at Gails bakery and she brought me home. Elena came in and put me to bed and I just rested for the rest of the evening, I really want to feel better.
