It is hard to believe that it's been a year since Charles died, yet sometimes it seems like he's been gone a long time! I am doing pretty well, everything considered, with the help of the Lord, and my supportive friends. However, it is hard sometimes, especially on weekends, when I don't have anything special to do and I am home alone, I get lonely . I think about all my friends who are busy doing things with their families and I really miss Charles. Anniversaries, birthdays and some holidays are hard as well, and I am just finishing up all the summer days. June 2009, Charles had his accident and died, July 27,2010 would have been his 56th birthday, and Aug. 15 , Sunday, would have been our 12th wedding anniversary!
Putting all that aside, I have been keeping very busy, trying to get my house fixed up. I have remodeled both bathrooms, with new toilets, faucets, floors,hardware, and paint and 1 has a new sink/vanity, and a new mirror. They were both done out of necessity , because the floors were rotting out under the carpet. ( I never liked carpet in the bathroom anyway.!) I also have a new laminate floor in my bedroom, and I had the "lovely 70's green and blue shag carpet " (LOL! pulled up out of the dining room.There was hardwood floors underneath and now I have an area rug, and 4 new dining room chairs. Thanks to Jay, Gary, Ryan, Dale , and Nadine for all their hard work in getting these projects done! There's still a lot to be done, like painting most of the rooms on the inside.
I am getting ready to start teaching Kids on Mission again in Sept. I am getting excited about that . I also have a total of 8 piano students and am supposed to get 2 more when school starts!! I'm hoping to have a recital again in the near future.
Well, that's it for now. I will write again soon.
