Here it is September 2014 and I am just now writing this. I need to do this more often!! Well Gary and I made it to 40 years being married ! Wow who knew we'd make it this long.
Kids (Tonya and Mark) are getting older, and we have six (8) grandchildren: Joshua, Aidan, Kelsey, Nicolas, Josiah and Caleb plus Cheyene (Shiloh's) and Mark Jr who is waiting for us in heaven.
We still have not gone nowhere this year due to financial problems due to BEE loss other than me going with Tonya , Kelsey and Aiden to the beach.
We are still in the lawsuit. It's coming along but not fast enough for us! Gary is still having breathing problems and my feet are still hurting. Found out that I have a bone (heal) spur and was told I need surgery. I hope to get it taken care of soon. Plus I hope by December/January I can get the gastric bypass done and eliminate the majority of my problems. My daughter and daughter in law have both had it done and are doing great!
In May of this year I had someone I have known for years ask me if I would teach a painting class so I got with the Lathrop Senior Center and started having classes there. I called it "Painting with Patty"
I would teach the class every Tuesday from 4 to 7. It became a problem with me carrying all my stuff back and forth from home with my feet problem so I am having them at my house now. My last class was the 2nd Tuesday in September. Now I am going to hold off till October and that's a maybe.
I am currently attending a watercolor class at the Manteca Senior Center on Mondays. It's a lot of fun and there are a lot of ladies there to compare and chat with. My mom even joined too, but I don;t think she likes it. I am excited because I get to hang two of my painting there for about 3 months and I can sale them too !
As far as Gary and I, I don't think we will be buying for each other, again. How depressing !!!
I try to stay busy, painting keeps my mine off a lot of things and lets me just enjoy life one day at a time.
I believe God will come through for us through the lawsuit and then we will be able to pay off all our bills and then Gary can decide what he wants to do as far as keeping this house or moving to Alaska, As for me I don't know what I want to do. I still need to pray about it and make my request known to the Lord....but even I don't know yet. Time...I still have time. So for now, this is all and hopefully I will keep this updated. Toodles and God Bless!
