What A Year I've Had!!!

Well,it's like it says in regards to the title of my blog or post to what a year I've had!I had my brother sell his house in the over lake area,then 3 days later,I end up being in the hospital for acute pancreatitis,type 2 diabetes & a urinary tract infection all in one!I had some help from the staff over at the hospital & then the rehabilitation center as well!I was then discharged to go to my brother's house & then have home care.I was then told to or yelled at to "get out" of my brother's house on July 12th & was staying in a hotel where I eventually ended up going back to the hospital because I got sick again!I was then living with a visiting teacher of mine from where I got emotionally tortured & then I said to myself that enough is enough & I finally moved out into my own place & have been on my own ever since!I'm loving my new place!Well,I'll blog or post more soon!

I Finally Have A Place To Call My Very Own!!!

Well,it's like it says in or about the title of my post or blog that I finally have a place to call my very own & have had it for over two weeks now!It's a small studio apartment,but it's doable for me & it's not very far from where the rehabilitation center is out here in Tooele!It's very close to where I can get out for or to places if I need to like Walgreens or the post office or the library even!There's a railroad museum located just right across the street from where I live as well as my new ward being not too far so that I can walk to church if I needed to!I'm in the Tooele 10th ward/Tooele Valley View stake & the bishop's really nice as well.His name's Jeffrey Lewis & he's the best(or one of) & he greeted me with a friendly voice & face that made me feel really good inside!The relief society president is nice as well & her name's Tiffany Gregson.There's one of her counselors that's named Bonnie Elton & she's nice as well!I know that for sure I'll make(or be making)friends in this new ward of mine as fast as I can,so that I won't have to leave so suddenly like I did from in the Tooele 15th ward!I also went to visit the rehabilitation center last Wednesday just right before it got dark & I saw a familiar(or some)face that day by the name of Christian Joseph Reidling over at this restaurant that's called "Vista Linda!"I was there for lunch & he just happened to walk in & order something & he recognized me & we got to talking because I haven't really seen him or his family in about 4 years!His brother who had passed away over two years ago was the one that had put or made me become friends with his Mom!Well,I'll either blog or post more soon,o.k.?

What A Season It's Been For Me!!!

Well,it's like it says in regards to the title of my blog or post with what a season it's been for me!I've been trying very hard to find me a place to live out here in Tooele County,but nothing as of yet!I hope that something comes up soon for me!I'm still having to replace the things that were thrown out over at my brother's house(likely movies,etc)!I'm doing that as slowly as I can through a website called Amazon.Com.I'm also going to have to replace the rest of my winter clothes as well.I've been attending an institute class & I really think that I should do something else on a Thursday night or during the week when I can get the chance to do it.Molly G's has a wood crafting class that maybe I should call & find out about.What do you think?I'm having to fight with a cold right now & it's been a hard week for me.My Mom had passed away 4 years ago last Friday morning & I was there for her when she did.There were some police,sheriff's deputies & an ambulance at the apartment that we(my Mom & I)had lived in for less than 5 years.We(my Mom & I)had lived in an apartment in Las Vegas,Nevada before for longer than that before moving back to Utah.We had lived up on a street named Utah avenue & I attended church in the Tooele,Utah North stake/Tooele 5th ward before going to live with my sister & my brother-in-law in Eagle Mountain,Utah.I'm now living back in Tooele,Utah & am doing really good & am feeling as safe as I can right now.I'm trying as hard as I can to be the best that I can right now.Well,I'll either blog of post more soon!

It's Been A While Since I've Blogged!!!

Well,it's like it says in or for the title of my blog that it's been a while since I've blogged.I had found out that just the day,my Dad's cousin,Martha Hatch had passed away on July 26th & was laid to rest on August 2nd.I've not seen her since my Father's funeral in 1995.She was such a very sweet lady & always had a place in my heart for loving her the way that I did.I'm so very grateful for her for being my great-aunt & having such a wonderful,sweet,caring,fun & favorite cousin of mine named Catherine Clark & she'll always be my favorite cousin from now until the day she leaves this earth.I remember the time that my Aunt Martha had come in 1981 & had stayed with us for a few days while her only son,Jim Hatch,was going down to BYU to attend college & she took some of us to Lagoon for a few hours & went on some rides with us.We then went home after that because we were going to have dinner with the missionaries,but we had fun(lots of).I'll miss her because she was a sweet,kind lady & I never asked for anything more in regards to her,I also never got any Christmas gifts from her to what I remember,but I got the best memory of all & that was her coming to stay with us at our house when we lived in a place or city named West Jordan & how we did something fun as a member of a family that was filled with love.Well,I'll either post or blog some more soon!

Well,it's like it says in regards to the title of my post or blog that this has been the most shocking week for me ever!I had just found out that my neighbors to the east of me had just lost their daughter,Allysa Dalton.She was the most beautiful,friendly person anyone could ever get to know or love.She'll be missed by a lot of people(especially her parents)who knew & loved her.Every time I was outside,I would get the chance to see her leave the house to go somewhere either with or without somebody & just enjoy seeing her from my front porch while sitting in my camp chair(folding)at times.She was a very beautiful spirit here on earth as she will be in heaven.Her family's in my prayers every night & even after I move because her parents are such dear friends & neighbors of mine & always will be.They've got services scheduled for her next week & I may or may not be able to go,but I'll certainly try.If you are reading this post or blog,please keep her family in your prayers so that they can feel comforted everyday & night that she's gone.Last night,there was a candlelight vigil held for her at one of the parks nearby & there were some words(kind)that were said about her by her mom & one other person as well as a song being sung entitled "Consider the lilies!"Well,I'll either blog or post more soon!

Today Was A Very Beautiful Day!!!

Well,it's like it says in regards to the title of my post or blog that today was a very beautiful day.I did what I always do everyday & got out for my walk.Getting out for some fresh air does me some good & it keeps me healthy.Just the other day I got to see the new house that I'll be living in soon & when I had taken a picture of it & posted it,I got a little melancholy because I'm leaving some good friends soon,but I'm sure that I'll be making some new ones as well.There's a song that I remember from an old phone commercial that's entitled "Old Friends" & one old friend picks up the phone & dials the old friend's number & the old friend answers the phone & says "Hello!"That commercial always made me cry sometimes because it reminded me of my Mom's Mother(my grandma)& how she lived far away from us.My friends in the Overlake area won't be so far & I can always give them a call.Well,I'll either blog or post more soon!

Well,it's like it says in regards to the title of my blog or post how I spent my Christmas & Thanksgiving,so here it goes:I arrived at my niece's(2nd)on Thanksgiving day & surprised my oldest sister & my oldest great-nephew & his sisters to stay for a month & it was fun(lots of).I got to sleep in the same room as my 4 year old great-niece & she slept on the top bunk of the bunk bed that we shared.I made sure that my 2nd niece's kids were fed on a Wednesday night because I was going out to do some shopping & then go to McDonald's for some dinner & thought that the kids would like something as well as my oldest sister & I.I then proceeded home with food & bags in hand with my oldest sister.The day after,I got to go to my 5 year old great-niece's Christmas program at her school(which is now my first great-nephew's as well)& she did wonderfully performing in her program that night.The following Saturday,I went to do some crafts at this place called "Heart Felt Wall Hangings" & brought some of them home because they weren't even done.Then on December 13th,I got to celebrate my first great-nephew's birthday because he was turning 9 on the 31st & I wasn't going to be there for his original birthday.On Christmas day,I celebrated it with my oldest sister,my 2nd niece,her kids & my 3rd niece & her girls.On December 21st,I went with a cousin of mine to go see the Christmas lights on Temple Square & then out to dinner with her to the Olive Garden restaurant & we had fun!From my oldest sister for Christmas I got a purse & a box filled with some candy & some things that I could use personally.Well,I'll either blog or post more tomorrow!
