Monday was a perfect day. Susan came in to give me a nice long relaxing massage, she usually does it on Wednesdays, but since my family will be here today, we decided to change the day. Karen came in and fed the hungry big guy, fed me, and then got me dressed and up in my chair. Dude and I took off for a cruise through Depot Park, down to Cowell beach and down to the end of wharf and back, down to the end of the boardwalk and back, down to the end of the wharf and back again and then home. I tilted back in my chair and watch TV until Jesse came in; she fed the hungry guy, put me to bed, and then fed me. She wanted the plants, vacuumed the living room and the kitchen, cleaned up, wiped everything down, and then went home. I watched TV for the rest of the evening and made a list of fun things to do while my family is here before I fell asleep.
Friday was a perfect day. Karen came in and fed the hungry guy, fed me, and got me dressed and up in my chair. My cousin invited all of us were barbecue up at his place on Bear Creek Rd., all of us at one time or another lived there or visited there a lot. I lived there but got into an accident in my senior year on Highway nine and ended up moving away because the drive scared me every morning going to college at West Valley College. I always used to visit my aunt and two cousins in Stockton a lot, and when one of my cousins moved out, they asked me if I wanted to move in, and I jumped at the chance. We decided to cruise down Highway nine to Bear Creek Rd. because it's such a beautiful drive. I felt really confident with my brother driving; the drive was not only beautiful but brought back a lot of memories. We got there, and it looked the same, but it looked different; my cousin built a ramp along the side of his deck a while back. Since it was along the side of the deck by the edge of the cliff, I was really nervous, but as soon as I got on it, I feel really safe; dad and having the boys around gave me courage. My cousin had made a lot of changes inside and out, and it was so awesome to see all the changes and I'm so proud of my cousin for doing it all himself, of course, with help from my uncle. My cousin gave me the tour, and we spent a lot of time outside hanging out, which was so awesome! Dude had such a good time running around on the property; it's all fenced in, so I didn't have to worry about him running down the street or down the canyon. We were really close when we were younger but had a troubled relationship for a while, but now we're getting back to where we can hang out again, and I love it! The time went by really fast, and it was time to go; I promised my caregiver I would be there 4 PM, but when I looked at my phone, it was already 4:30 PM, so I texted her and told her that we would be there were on our way. Luckily she's really easygoing. We cruised back home, and everybody was exhausted; Jesse put me to bed and fed the knucklehead, watered the plants, cleaned up and wiped everything down, and then went home. Everybody went to sleep early; I watch TV for a while and then fell asleep. Such an awesome day!
