Last week while at the park there were a group of children who were probably there from a school and they were running laps on the field. One little girl....a beautiful little girl (of age 5 0r 6) with Down's Syndrome took off from the group. One of the woman kept calling her...did the count to three thing but this little girl kept on going towards the playground. Defiantly with much stubbornnes she kept right on going with her head held high. I silently rooted her on thinking....You go girl! She made it to her destination which was the very high slide and went right up it and slid down. By this time the woman who was trying to call her back had given up and let her go down the slide. God Bless this little soul who has chosen such a difficult and challenging path in life and chooses to face life head on. We can all learn much from her.
It's chilly today and there is a dusting of snow on the ground. It will probably be melted when the sun comes out which is not supposed to be until the afternoon. It's supposed to get up into the 50's today and be that way for the next 5 days or so. The kids want to go for a walk later and if it warms up enough I will take them. They will probably take their bikes and I'll take Mercedes in her stroller.
Feeling better
I don't feel sick at all anymore. After 3 days of having a bad cough this is a relief. I think the altitude and weather change has played a part in me getting sick. We are at a very high altitude here and it takes time to get used to it again. When I first got here my lips started getting chapped and my skin feels very dry. I'm hoping that drinking more water will help.
I've gone back and forth in my mind about the post I wrote yesterday. I thought about removing it but then I ask myself why? It's all the truth and how I feel. If I were to remove it I'd be censoring myself and I've had enough of that in the past. Being honest with myself and my feelings is important at this time and I don't mean to offend anyone or make anyone uncomfortable. I'm just doing what I need to do.
If I get a chance I'm going to dye my hair today. There are too many gray hairs peeking thru. Uggghhh. I'm going to get my hair cut and layered when I get the money....I can't remember the last time I've had it's been years and I think it will be a nice change. I'm still keeping it long though because when my hair is short it gets out of control and very curly. I've got some sewing that I want to get started on also. So all in all today will be a pretty busy day.


  1. I'm glad you are feeling better and enjoying your new life. Make sure you show pictures of your new hair do!

    I think you should keep posting your feelings (like the last post.) It's your blog and you are not slandering anyone. This is an online journal, so enjoy having a place to say what you really think and feel.

    Just my 2 cents :-)

  2. Oh I'm planning to continue posting my feelings. It's better than being angry and keeping it inside.
